Serves: 1 16-ounce jar
  1. Shake your can of coconut milk super well, open it, and pour contents into a clean and dry jar (I just used a 16-ounce mason jar). If the cream is still separated, stick a whisk in your jar and stir until smooth.
  2. Crack open your probiotic capsules by twisting them a bit with your fingers and empty them into your coconut milk. Stir with a wooden spoon or something plastic. DO NOT use metal as it could hurt the active probiotics. Continue to stir until the probiotics are mixed evenly, scraping the spoon on the walls of the jar as needed. This may take a few minutes.
  3. Cover your coconut milk mixture with a very thin town or (ideally) a cheese cloth. Secure with a rubber band.
  4. And that is it! Let your jar rest in a warm place (ideally somewhere at or above 75 degrees - I’ve read that putting your coconut milk in the oven with the light on can also work, though I have not tried this method).
  5. At the 24 hour mark, taste your mixture for flavor (be sure to use a wooden or plastic spoon). If it is tangy enough for you, cover with a lid and move to the refrigerator, otherwise, give your yogurt some more time. I found 40-48 hours to be just right for me. In the refrigerator, your yogurt will thicken up some more (Mine is like greek yogurt!). Once it is chilled (around 6 hours) it is ready to eat!
  6. Top your yogurt with desired toppings and enjoy. It will last in the refrigerator for about a week.
*I used Whole Foods 365 full-fat coconut milk. I have not tried other brands, but the ingredients in Thai Kitchen full-fat coconut milk are similar. Basically look for a coconut milk without added sweeteners and minimal ingredients. Guar Gum is fine as it will help keep your coconut milk from separating, but be sure to avoid any other weird thickeners.

**I used 20 billion probi capsules. If yours are higher, you should be able to make this recipe with only two capsules.
