About the Founder
My name is Francheska Yamsuan, but I go by Frankie! I created Coconut Girl because I was always obsessed with health and fitness. I didn’t always have a healthy relationship with food or my body. Like many young girls, I developed an unhealthy body image at a very young age and became obsessed with being skinny. It wasn’t until discovering CrossFit and the paleo diet that I started changing my feelings towards food and my body. CrossFit taught me that being strong is more important than being skinny and the paleo diet taught me that eating real, quality, nutritious foods is more beneficial instead of starving myself. Before paleo, I used to think fat-free or sugar-free foods were healthier options, so I overindulged on processed foods touted as “healthy.” But if food companies are taking out the fat and sugar and replacing them with chemicals and ingredients I couldn’t pronounce, is that really healthier?
When I turned 18, I was obsessed with doing two to three hours of cardio and having no social life because working out was more important at the time. Fortunately, my life changed for the better when I learned about CrossFit after moving to LA in my 20s. I started leaning out, eating better, and focusing on nutritious, good-for-you ingredients. My new obsession was now in the kitchen: I enjoyed creating healthy alternatives to all of my favorite desserts since I couldn’t trust many products out there, especially because they made me lethargic and constantly hungry.
That’s when my coconut “ice cream” was born! What started as a hobby slowly turned into a business. Ever since, I’ve been dedicated to creating a product that uses good-for-you ingredients without compromising flavor or texture. So if you’re new here, just know I created this dessert with your sweet tooth and waistline in mind.
About the Products
It’s hard to find a dessert that matches up to your clean eating — that’s why I created Coconut Girl.
There are 3 delicious flavors:
- Aloha Chocolate
- Beach Bum Maple
- Hang Loose Vanilla
Our nice cream is made mainly with coconut milk and natural sweeteners that are nutrient-rich: dates, honey, and maple syrup.
We’ve perfected the cookie texture with creamy almond butter so it’s soft and chewy which complements the rich coconut cream so well.
You can find all the nutrition facts and ingredients for each flavor on our Products page!
