Meet Cacao For Coconuts
Cacao For Coconuts (Danielle Bear)
As a vegan of four years and a food blogger, Danielle Bear launched Cacao for Coconuts in April 2020. Cacao for Coconuts is more than a passion project, though. It’s an extension of Danielle herself.
Danielle describes herself as a foodie on a mission. Her goal? “To nourish my body through delicious and beautiful food and help others do the same."
Along with cooking and baking with plant-based ingredients, Cacao for Coconuts is also about self-betterment, mindful thinking, joyful movement, and encouraging healthy habits.
“I am always learning and finding ways to live my best life and feel the best I possibly can.”
One of Danielle’s favorite ways to enjoy Trupo Treats is on her stunning smoothie creations, “The bowl is my canvas,” says Danielle, “[and] I am a huge chocolate fan!”
Danielle adds, “I love the style of Trupo [Treats] chocolate.” She says our vegan milk chocolate reminds her of the crunch bars she enjoyed before her vegan days.
Danielle continues, “I am a firm believer in chocolate for breakfast! I love how Trupo treats are light and crunchy [and] they don’t get too hard on a cold smoothie bowl. ”
With that inspiration in mind, Danielle blended up this Trupo Treats-topped green smoothie bowl!

Danielle loves “the Trupo mission” and our commitment to giving back to animal sanctuaries.
The Santa Monica-based foodie is especially fond of farmed animal sanctuaries in her home state of California, like Love Always Sanctuary in San Fernando, one of the first sanctuaries we partnered with.
