Coconut drink review /kokosdrikke

Standard

wpid-wp-1436162237890.jpeg

Various version of coconut drink exist, i therefore set out to find out the difference between two of them.

Coconut dream has 50 kcal /100 ml whereas Alpro only has 20. Coconut dream also has more sugar. They have the same amount of vitamins.

If you ask me, coconut dream taste better. It is creamier.
Alpro is thinner and has an aftertaste of sugar replacement.

But if you want to cut down on calories Alpro definetely wins.

Use it for the piña colada recipe I posted earlier, for chia pudding or for smoothies

Coconut-mint-chokolate-shake :
2 dl alpro coconut
A handful mint leaves
1 frozen banana
1 tsp raw cacao powder

Jeg vil her sammenligne Alpros og Coconut dreams kokosdrikke, der kan fås i visse kvickly, Føtex, Brugsen og helsebutikker.

.Coconut Dream er lækker og cremet. Alpros udgave er tyndere og smager af sødestoffer.

Produkterne har samme mængde tilsat B12

Coconut Dream har 50 kcal/100 ml, hvorimod Alpro kun har 20. Cocunut Dream indeholder mere sukker end Alpro. Alpro er altså vejen frem, hvis du vil spare på kalorierne, men Coconut Dream smager bedre:)

Jeg har tidligere lagt en opskrift på piña colada med Coconut Dream ud.

Du kan bruge drinkkene i din chiabudding, drikke dem rent eller lave en smoothie som denne:

Choko-mynte-smoothie

2 dl Alpro coconut original

1 håndfuld hakkede mynteblade

1 tsk rå kakaopulver

1 frossen banan

Treat yourself as if you were a goddess with this amazing drink.

I just tried the coconut dream drink for the first time, and I am in love! It taste like coconut, summer, heaven…  Drink it alone, in a smoothie, use it for chia pudding – you name it 🙂

For this Pina colada i used: 2 handfull frozen pineapple cubes, 1 cup coconut dream, mint leaves and 0,5 banana
