Coconut Treasure Comes Ashore
I’m continuously both amazed and delighted at how Ireland’s vegan landscape is changing and evolving. Supermakets shelves are filled with options but one thing had been missing, until now.
I adore coconut yogurt. It’s such a handy breakfast option as well as amazing to serve with a curry or savoury dish. I make mine at home from time-to-time but I have now come across a super convenient alternative.
Danny O’Regan lives in Schull, West Cork. After 26 years working in the dairy industry in UK, Denmark. Germany, France and Australia, Danny returned to Ireland to make dairy-free products. He set up Schull & Crossbones in 2017 and has now created Coconut Treasure – the first and only Irish-made yoghurt alternative
The range comprises of three 120g pots with coconut yogurt and compote in Apple and Cinnamon, Pineapple and Strawberry flavours. They are such a convenient breakfast options. They are lovely by themselves or with a sprinkle of chia seeds but if you want something a little more filling this Quinoa Pop Granola is very quick to make and so delicious.
The Coconut milk comes from the Sambu Group and produced in both an ethical and sustainable manner Coconuts in Indonesia are a source of life for many and they try to cultivate more opportunities in turning inhabitable and barren peatlands into a thriving land. The packaging is fully recyclable also.

While still hot from the oven scatter in the date pieces and allow clumps to form around them.
