2-INGREDIENT COCONUT YOGURT
Have you ever wondered how to make your own homemade coconut yogurt? Which is by the way naturally vegan, gluten-free, low- carb and paleo friendly. It’s so easy! There are no fancy tricks or expensive equipment involved here. Just mix coconut milk with probiotic and wait, which is for sure the hardest part of this process.
I prefer my yogurt plain, but you can of course sweeten and season yours with whatever you like. For example, vanilla, maple syrup, coconut sugar and different berry powders work always. And yes, there might be a big difference between different brands (coconut milk and probiotics), so if your first try doesn’t thicken/ get sour enough/ tickle your taste buds, try another one. Make sure that there are no additives in the coconut milk and that your probiotic is high quality and doesn’t contain PREbiotics to get the best end result.
Ingredients (2 servings):
1 can (400ml) of coconut milk (I prefer full-fat but light version works as well, end result just won’t be that creamy/ thick)
2 probiotic capsules (I used these from Puhdas+, *product given)
- Vanilla extract or vanilla bean powder
- sweetener of your choice
- berry powder
- Shake your coconut milk well (It’s important to select a coconut milk that’s creamy and smooth, try different brands, if first one doesn’t go to your taste).
- Place coconut milk in a clean jar or glass container (Make sure you wash your hands and clean your jar and spoon well before starting, if you want to succeed with this).
- Twist open the probiotic capsules and empty the powder into the coconut milk. Discard the capsules. Use a wooden, ceramic or plastic spoon to stir, not metal, as metal can react negatively with the probiotics. Stir until creamy and smooth.
- Cover the mixture with thin, clean dish towel and tighten with an elastic band.
- Leave to sit on the counter that is out of direct sunlight. Let the yogurt activate for at least 24 hours and up to 48 hours. The longer it rests, the tangier and thicker your yogurt will become. Warmer temperatures make this process easier, so if your house is cold, make sure to find a warm place to your jar. You can give it a taste during the process, to make sure when your yogurt is done: Look for the distinctive tangy yogurt taste.
- Once done, place a lid on your container and place the yogurt in fridge for a couple of hours or overnight to thicken and firm.
- Optional: Add a bit of sweetener or flavor at this point, I prefer mine plain and add berries, fruits, nuts, etc. before eating.
- Serve with fresh fruits or berries, nuts, etc.
Store covered in the refrigerator for several days.
