Coconut CollaborativeThe Coconut Collaborative
DF Mango & Passionfruit Coconut Milk Yoghurt ‘Amazing, so fruity, delicious!' 'Very nice & light –

Highly Commended

Booja-Booja Pompompous Maple Pecan Ice Cream Alternative

'Goodness ME this is a treat! Very unexpected as this is nut-based.' ‘Good flavours, really enjoyable, didn’t taste remotely ‘freefrom’!' 'Amazing – so few ingredients.' 'Smooooooooth, creamy and tasty.'

Nice fruity flavours tempered by gentle creaminess.' 'Love the swirls!' 'Great to have a freefrom frozen yoghurt option – moving with the times.'

Glamour Puds Treacle Sponge

Tesco Free From Melt in the Middle Belgian Chocolate Puddings

'Delicious, wouldn’t have a clue they were freefrom.' 'Chocolate impressively rich and bonus points for not being packed with nuts; perhaps a little too much like a mousse for a soft centre pud?' 'Convenient individual serving and microwaveability.' 'Looks and tastes very appealing!'

Tesco Free From Sweet Party Selection

'Would never know they were freefrom – great for a kids’ party.' 'Delicious little cakes all with individual flavours.' 'Surprisingly moist nibbles – it is hard to find freefrom party desserts, so this is a great supermarket discovery.'

Commended

Asda Chosen By You Mango Sorbet

‘Strong mango flavour, a good texture and aftertaste.' 'Amazingly creamy & smooth for a sorbet, but disappointing that they don’t make more of their freefrom status to reassure consumers.' 'Mmm.... refreshing.'

Jollyum Passionfruit & Chocolate Ice Cream Alternative

‘Lovely creamy ‘ice cream’ combined with light fruit and sharp chocolate – a surprising, but successful, innovation.' 'I like the passionfruit, but chocolate was less discernable.'

Tesco Free From Italian Coffee Style Dessert

'Could genuinely pass for the real thing.' 'I did a double take when I saw this was dairy free: creamy, boozy and a good kick of coffee. Any DF or GF dessert fan would be very happy with this.'
