A big selling point for Turtle Mountain’s coconut milk is what it doesn’t have – no dairy, no lactose, no soy, no gluten, no cholesterol, and no trans-fats. Coconut milk is a great source of Vitamin B12, is vegan/vegetarian friendly, and is formulated to allow for maximum calcium absorption while being rich in medium-chain fatty acids. You can use this yummy new product in your cereal or coffee, or blend it up in a banana smoothie or low calorie pina colada smoothie.
Although I can’t say that I like this new product more than almond milk, it is a good choice for those folks who don’t like almond milk or who love coconut. If you’re looking for a low calorie drink, this is a tasty choice, especially if you’re getting bored with water! You can actually pick this up in most Wal-Mart Super Centers, or even Whole Foods (both refrigerated and boxed).
The unsweetened version has 50 calories, 5 grams of healthy fat (so 1 weight watchers point), and 1 gram of protein. The sweeter flavor has 80 calories and 5 grams of healthy fat (2 weight watchers points). In fact, many people believe that the fat in coconut heals promote weight maintenance without affecting cholesterol levels. Pretty cool!
