I used Coyo coconut yoghurt to frost these muffins. Coyo is a dairy free Coconut Milk Yoghurt made from the squeezed flesh of the coconut, to which is added five carefully sourced plant fed vegan cultures making a delicious dairy free alternative. There are no added sweeteners or preservatives, just simple, whole ingredients.
