So Delicious Debuts Holiday Beverages

‘Tis the season to be jolly!  You can’t avoid it, so why not embrace it?  There is nothing worse than celebrating with family and friends and having to avoid some of the most treasured, traditional foods and drinks.  So Delicious has just debuted their fun Holiday beverages in three festive flavors that may help ease a little bit of that frustration.

COCONUT HEALTH BENEFITS & FACTS

Here are just a few health benefits ascribed to coconut:

  • Coconut consuming cultures around the world have lower incidence of heart disease than Americans.1
  • Lauric acid exists abundantly in coconut and plays a fundamental role in building our body’s immune system. Once in our system it transforms into an antibacterial and antiviral substance called “monolaurin” which destroys viruses and diseases.2
  • Lauric acid also occurs naturally in human breast milk and plays a vital role in nourishing and protecting babies from infections.3
  • MCFAs promote weight maintenance without raising cholesterol levels. They work best for preventing weight gain if you’re not overweight or maintaining your new weight after a successful diet.4

Even if you don’t have to avoid dairy or soy, these beverages can be added to any Holiday party to be paired with cookies or pumpkin pie.  For an extra special treat, try adding a tablespoon or 2 to your morning coffee.  The So Delicious products can be found in many mainstream and health food stores across the US.  If you need an extra incentive to try the new beverages, there is a $.55 off coupon here.  So Delicious has a number of other products such as almond milk, yogurt and ice cream, coconut milk, yogurt and ice cream and soy milk, yogurt and ice cream.  Not all of the So Delicious products are gluten-free, but they will be clearly labeled so if they are.

Have you tried the new seasonal coconut milk beverages?  What about any of the other So Delicious products?
