There is a Real Food alternative to artificial sweeteners that has no glycemic impact and almost no calories. Learn how to use Coco Monkey -- a guilt-free, low-carb sugar substitute made with organic, clean ingredients that's perfect for diabetics and the keto diet.

With the rising popularity of sugar detoxes and low-carb diets, you’ve probably also noticed an increased supply and demand for sugar-free sweeteners.

While it’s all well and good to forgo highly processed and refined sugar, the thought of forgoing sweet foods all together may seem a little too Dooms Day-ish for some.

And of course, sugar-free options that include sucralose, aspartame, or saccharin are out.

The good news is that there is an alternative to artificial sweeteners. It’s much healthier and still won’t cause insulin spikes!

It’s Wildly Organic’s Coco Monkey!

Wildly Organic has crafted our own unique, low-calorie, sugar-free sweetener. Coco Monkey is made from all natural ingredients, so you don’t need a chemistry degree to understand them.

  • Organic inulin
  • Freeze-dried organic coconut water (containing organic coconut water & organic tapioca)
  • Monk fruit extract

One teaspoon contains just five calories and one gram of carbs (in the form of dietary fiber).

Coco Monkey is a great option for those who desire little sweetness in their lives without the added health costs of refined sugars.

Unlike many other sweeteners, Coco Monkey is…

  • High in fiber
  • Non-GMO
  • Organic
  • Low-calorie
  • Low-carb
  • Suitable for those with blood sugar issues
  • Perfect for Paleo and Keto lifestyles

Let’s take a closer look at the three ingredients in Coco Monkey.

#1 — Organic Inulin

Organic inulin is the base ingredient. Inulin has a mild, sweet flavor and is considered prebiotic fiber.

Prebiotics feed the beneficial bacteria in the gut that are vital to maintaining a healthy digestive system. Furthermore, inulin is often added to probiotic foods like yogurt and kefir. Some species of gut flora, such as Lactobacillus, are able to break down inulin into beneficial fatty acids which the body utilizes more effectively.

Diabetics may prefer to use inulin as an alternative sweetener since it is high in fiber and low on the glycemic index. Inulin is commonly used alongside other sweeteners to bulk up recipes while keeping the calorie count low. It has less than one-third of the calories of sugar.

Here are 10 ways to use inulin everyday for it’s prebiotic, gut-happy benefits.

#2 — Organic, Freeze-Dried Coconut Water

Concentrated, freeze-dried coconut water adds another element of sweetness to Coco Monkey. Additionally, coconut water lends the added benefit of electrolytes.

Organic tapioca is mixed with the freeze-dried coconut water to help the product’s shelf stability without the use of preservatives.

#3 — Monk Fruit Extract

This magical fruit has recently risen to fame in the low-carb community as a sugar-free sweetener. Monk Fruit (Luo Han Guo) is native to the mountainous regions of southern China and northern Thailand, where it has been used for many centuries as a natural sweetener.

When monk fruit compounds are extracted, they contain 300 to 400 times the sweetness of standard white sugar. A little bit goes a long way! Furthermore, monk fruit extract has additional benefits — it’s virtually calorie-free and won’t impact the blood sugar.

But What About The Taste?

Coco Monkey doesn’t produce a bitter or artificial aftertaste like some sugar replacements do.

It has a clean sweetness. It also melts in the mouth, sort of like cotton candy!

How To Use Coco Monkey

2 teaspoons Coco Monkey = the sweetness of 1 tablespoon white sugar

Coco Monkey is best used in recipes containing water. So, it’s perfect for sweetening drinks — such as coffee, cold or hot tea, hot cocoa or white hot chocolate, homemade electrolyte drinks, and detox drinks.

It’s also lovely sprinkled over fruit or added to fruit salads.

Because less Coco Monkey is required to achieve the same sweetness as sugar, less is used in baking recipes. For instance, 2/3 to 3/4 cup Coco Monkey may be substituted for each cup of sugar in a baked recipe. However, you may need to adjust the wet ingredients in your recipe to make up for the loss of bulk.

Have you tried Coco Monkey before? What’s your favorite way to use it?

    I have used CocoMonkey for a couple years now. It tastes really good. I use it in smoothies, to sweeten unsweetened yogurt and kefir, and have also used it in baked goods, along with stevia. (It works especially good in custards and even cheesecake and ice cream. The light color will not make any of these treats too dark like coconut sugar.) My husband has a real sweet tooth but he also had high triglycerides so I eliminated his sugar intake but did use CocoMonkey and stevia to satisfy his sweet tooth (along with occasional yakon syrup and Swerve.) CocoMonkey works great, and his triglycerides are down over 100 points!

    Is this sweetener keto-friendly? How “low” is low-carb when it comes to this product? Thanks much!

      Hi there! A single serving size is 1 tsp (3g). That single serving contains 1g of carbohydrates (0% of your daily value).

      I bet you could put them in a blender with some milk, blend, then strain and heat? It would probably take some experimenting to get the sweetness right.
