This Xotic Hint of Lime Deluxe Dessert is a great new addition to vegan friendly pot desserts with balanced flavours and a creamy taste.
It’s great to see that the range of vegan friendly pot desserts is increasing all the time. There’s soya yoghurts and desserts available in all supermarkets now. This brand new product is different in that it is also soy free. Vegans often carry their own foods whilst travelling so it would work really well there. It’s also good to see that these desserts are fortified with those all important vitamins D2 and B12 that vegans need to be careful are included in their diet.
The flavour base for this range of desserts is coconut cream. This is then paired up with a fruit that naturally goes well with coconut. I could detect the flavours of the lime and the coconut individually but they also blended well. Texture wise it’s less dense than a yoghurt with an almost pourable consistency. I could see this working well as a thick sauce poured over homemade coconut cake. I think the texture would also appeal to children.This was my favourite flavour of the range.
