Natural + Tangy + Creamy

IMG_0082.jpg

Yogurt is a type of food that can complement a variety of recipes. I personally like to use vegan yogurt in loaded papaya boats, various breakfast smoothies, along with mixed fruit and so on! This vegan yogurt recipe is a simple and convenient way to get your daily dose of probiotics. It’s also a better alternative to traditional store-bought yogurts - It’s natural, contains pronounceable ingredients with no preservatives. It doesn’t get any better than that!

Traditional yogurt is made by bacterial fermentation of milk. However, this vegan yogurt is fermented using a probiotic capsules.

This delicious recipe was inspired by The Minimalist Baker.

What You'll Need...

  • 3 1/2 cups of full-fat organic coconut milk. For best results, use: THIS.

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • Probiotic culture (you have the option to use 1-2 probiotic capsules)

  • 2 tbsp of freshly squeezed orange juice

  • 1 cup of ripe fruit: mango or strawberries (I like to mix it up and use different combinations: papaya + mango + strawberries)

 

What To Do...

  • Shake the can of coconut milk well before pouring into sterilized mason jar - You can sterilize your jar using HOT water.

    • Please refrain from using soap, it can counteract with the fermenting process.

  • Once coconut milk is transferred to mason jar, whisk well.

    • Use either a plastic or wooden spoon to whisk - metal can counteract with the probiotic.

  • Empty the probiotic capsule(s) in the jar of coconut milk & whisk well.

  • Cover jar with a cheesecloth & secure with a rubber-band to prevent vermin’s from entering the mix.

  • Place jar on top of the kitchen counter for 24-48 hours - fermentation process.

    • The longer it ferments, the thicker and tangier the yogurt becomes!

  • Once finished with the fermentation process, give it another mix, then add orange juice, vanilla extract, and your choice of pureed fruits.

  • Chill then serve!

    Notes…

  • For a thicker consistency - store in the fridge overnight.

  • You have the option to add to smoothies, papaya boats, and so on!

  • This recipe is great for overly ripe fruits. They are typically sweeter and can do well in naturally sweetening the yogurt.

  • If you find that your yogurt isn’t sweet enough, add some organic sugar!
