2. Chocolate Cocoa Fruit Sorbet

Looking for the perfect product story? Why not make a sorbet that uses the entire cocoa fruit – both the beans and the pulp. This flavour symphony harmonises luxurious chocolate with the tropical essence of cocoa fruit. This extraordinary sorbet brings together Koa Pure cocoa fruit juice, Felchlin’s cacao fruit couverture and Felchlin’s organic cacao butter. It’s a real delight for those who relish the contrast of deep, earthy tones from the cocoa beans, complemented by an exotic, tropical twist from cocoa fruit pulp.

3. Cocoa Fruit Froyo with Cocoa Fruit Caramel

Take your frozen yoghurt game to new heights with one of our latest obsessions: a cocoa fruit froyo topped with a cocoa fruit caramel. Imagine a blend of creamy, dreamy yoghurt infused with the exotic essence of cocoa fruit, with an added burst of tropical flavour from the caramel. This tantalising creation feels like a mini-holiday and will leave you craving for more. With Koa Pure cocoa fruit juice as the star ingredient, blended with natural Greek yoghurt, a hint of lemon juice, and a fruity sauce topping, every spoonful promises a refreshing summer treat.

4. Ice Cream with Dried Cocoa Fruit Inclusion

For those who love a bit of crunchy or chunky texture in their ice cream, we’ve got the latest game-changer that you can’t find anywhere else: dried cocoa fruit flakes. These delightful additions offer not only a burst of tropical sweetness but also a satisfying soft texture in your ice cream. For a crunchy inclusion element, try combining Koa Flakes with chocolate. Need a little visual inspiration? Check out the chocolate ice cream in this reel by Kevin Kugel Chocolatier.

5. Ice Cream with a Cocoa Fruit Chocolate Shell

Speaking of crunchy textures, why not use some crispy cocoa fruit chocolate as a shell? Here’s a treat for you to try: an ice cream bar on a stick adorned with a cocoa fruit chocolate shell made from crispy Koa Flakes – remember what we said earlier about the beauty of using the entire cocoa fruit? This is another perfect opportunity to marry chocolate with pulp. And why stop there? Try a creamy, velvety soft ice cream with a wafer made of cocoa fruit chocolate and cocoa fruit flakes delicately sprinkled on top, creating a sensory experience like no other.

6. Cocoa Fruit Slushy

Let’s finish up your summer line-up with a refreshing iced drink. Create a refreshing iced slushy with cocoa fruit.

Cocoa farming communities: smallholder farmers in Ghana

The Impact of Using Koa Cocoa Fruit Ingredients

Here at Koa, we’re passionate about transforming the cocoa industry by using every part of the cocoa fruit, including the often-overlooked cocoa fruit pulp, to create delicious products that are not only exceptional in taste but also contribute to the well-being of smallholder farmers in Ghana by boosting their income.

By using more of the cocoa fruit, we’re not only creating additional job opportunities in the cocoa farming communities but we’re also actively reducing our carbon footprint, all contributing to a healthier planet.

Furthermore, by upcycling the cocoa fruit, we’re leading the way towards a more sustainable cocoa sector while introducing a delightful array of new treats and culinary delights that elevate both savoury and sweet creations. Come join us in our mission to make a positive impact on both livelihoods and the environment while indulging in flavourful delights!
