I started using this about 2 months ago because I have always had bloating gut issues and have tried so many other probiotics that never worked the way that I wanted them to. The first reason I wanted to try the coconut cult – I am obsessed with anything coconut (which you probably know if you have read anything else on my blog ;)) and second, I have read so many amazing things and how it has helped many others with their tummy issues, and lastly – their website is awesome & cute, and the owner seems amazing.
If you don’t live in any of the areas where they sell in stores (mostly in CA) but expanding pretty quickly – you can order them online. It is a bit pricey if ordering online. That was the only reason I was hesitant at first to purchase but I do have to say, totally worth it if you are looking for a probiotic that actually works AND TASTES AMAZING. It is so creamy and smooth. I bought the original and the coconut cream which has organic orange juice and organic mangoes in it. Both are delicious but going forward, I will only buy the coconut cream one.
They do recommend starting with just a few spoonfuls and progressing to a whole bowl. It is a replacement for your daily probiotic supplement or as your new favorite yogurt. You can eat it every single day – I actually love eating a huge spoonful straight from the jar a few times a day! Ever since I started eating this, I do have to say that I haven’t been bloated once and it just makes you feel so much better. The obvious reason – makes you go….umm.. regularly and cleans ya out!

Put everything into a blender, except the coconut cult probiotics. Make sure it is all blended up. I used a coconut cult jar for this one, I had a little of the probiotic left in the jar and decided to use the jar since it is so darn cute. I left that on the bottom then added the blended mixture on top of it. Add a little cacao nibs on top of it all and VOILA! Delish!
