Koko Dairy Free Spread with Coconut Oil Review

Koko Dairy Free Spread - Made with coconut milkI was recently sent a sample of a new dairy free spread (sort of alternative to butter) from Koko, the people who make coconut milk (see review links below).

While I don’t personally use spreads like butter any more, my family still spread butter on their toast etc. and my elder daughter does lots of baking with butter. So I decided to let them be the judge. Of course, I did try some myself…

Koko Dairy free spread is suitable for anyone with a dairy protein allergy, lactose intolerance, vegetarians, vegans, coeliacs, or those simply wanting to reduce their consumption of dairy products.

Koko Dairy Free Spread contains pressed coconut oil (26%) and is mixed with other oils and water. It’s quite pale in colour and looks like a regular spread. I can’t say I particularly liked the smell of it. A bit plastic like. Actually, thinking about it, the smell does remind me of margarine (something I haven’t bought in years).

When spreading it onto soft bread, it tends to break up a bit and you have to squash it down to spread it. It melts like regular butter when spread onto hot toast. When eating it melted, I couldn’t really taste anything much but didn’t try it cold.

My daughter said it tasted oily and she couldn’t taste any coconut (which is probably what was intended). She also said it spread weirdly. However, she used it all up in her baking and it was absolutely fine.
