SO DELICIOUS® DAIRY FREE GOES COCONUTS fOR THE HOLIDAYS
Eugene, OR, June 28, 2011 – Turtle Mountain, the makers of So Delicious® Dairy Free products, including So Delicious® Coconut Milk Beverage and other truly delicious coconut milk-based products, introduces two very merry seasonal beverages for 2011. This drinkable duo is tasty and offers two great options for revelers looking to watch their fat and sugar intake.
Start celebrating with So Delicious® Dairy Free Coconut Milk Nog. This is a vegan Nog – no eggs here! Made with organic, non-GMO verified coconuts, So Delicious Coconut Milk Nog has only 3 grams of fat per serving, and these are plant-based fats, which are rich in Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFAs). Remember, not all fats are created equally. The body processes MCFAs differently, as they are not stored in the adipose tissue like other saturated fats. MCFAs actually burn as natural energy.
What couple has the best taste this holiday? Chocolate and mint, of course, and you can enjoy them guilt free with So Delicious® Dairy Free Mint Chocolate Coconut Milk Beverage. Also made with organic, non-GMO verified coconuts, this drink satisfies chocolate desires with only 50 calories and 6 grams of sugar per serving.
Both beverages will be available for a limited time in quart sizes in the refrigerated sections of retailers nationwide in late October 2011. These dairy-free beverages are soy-free, gluten-free, vegan and will retail at around $2.99.

2 ripe bananas
2 cups So Delicious® Coconut Milk Nog
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
8 slices hearty whole-grain, sourdough, or gluten-free bread
Blend bananas, coconut nog, cinnamon, and vanilla in a blender and pour into a pie plate or wide bowl. Heat a griddle or skillet coated with a thin layer of coconut oil. Gently dip the bread slices, one at a time into the plate or bowl, letting slices soak up mixture for a few seconds, then carefully turn to coat the other side. Transfer bread slices to griddle or skillet, heating slowly until bottom is golden brown. Turn and brown the other side. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, if desired, and serve hot with (or without syrup) and fresh berries. Serves 4.
