How to make Coconut Yogurt

how to make coconut yogurtCoconut yogurt has been my go-to breakfast, snack, or treat since going dairy-free a few years ago.

Unlike other dairy-free yogurt options, coconut yogurt has a naturally sweet flavor and is always perfectly creamy.

probiotic coconut yogurtLast year I learned to make my own coconut yogurt and it has been such a game changer—for both my breakfast, and my bank account.

This recipe turns a single can of coconut milk into a jar of the creamiest, probiotic-infused yogurt.

Let me teach you how to make coconut yogurt!

Next time you’re at the grocery store, I dare you to look at the ingredients on the back of the dairy-free yogurt—I guarantee there won’t be anything with just 2 ingredients—or anything that tastes this good.

Coconut yogurt is seriously the best base for a breakfast bowl (throw on all the fruit + granola). This stuff has healthy fats, probiotics for aided digestion, and a neutral, naturally sweet flavor.

Materials

  • 1 can full fat coconut milk*
  • 2 probiotic capsules**

Instructions

  • Shake canned coconut milk super well, open and carefully pour into a clean jar.
  • Split the probiotic capsules over the jar and empty contents into the coconut milk.
  • Stir with a wooden spatula until probiotics are evenly dispersed through the liquid.
  • Cover the jar with a cloth and secure with a rubber band or string. Let rest in warm, dark space for 36-48 hours—or until coconut yogurt is thick and creamy.
  • Cover with a lid and transfer to refrigerator. Chill until very thick. Store in refrigerator and use within a week.

Notes

*Different coconut milk brands will react differently with this recipe. I find that Whole Foods 365 brand works great along with Sprouts Farmer's Market brand. Be sure coconut milk is full fat (not lite).
**Look for a high-quality refrigerated probiotic capsule. This can be found in the chilled vitamins section of most health-foods store. I use Solgar - Probi 20 Billion.
Nutrition information is a rough estimate of 1/8 of the entire recipe.
