Recipe: DIY Coconut Yoghurt

Leave a comment

What is it about coconut that tastes so amazing? I could eat it all day long; whether its in a soup, an oil, a yoghurt or a pina colada! As far as recipe experiments go this one was alot of fun to eat afterward. Next on the list is almond yoghurt – it’s currently in the Easiyo but I am having difficulty making it thick enough. Any tips welcome!

Ingredients:

Coconut milk or Coconut cream tins x 3

Greek yoghurt x 3 tbsp

Vanilla essence x 1 tsp

Coconut sugar (optional sweetness) x 1 tbsp 

Method:

Combine all ingredients into an Easiyo container and shake.

Seal and place in the Easiyo thermos with boiling water. Do keep 3 tbsp to make your second batch or you can buy dairy free culture. Always keep 3 tablespoons to make your next batch. 

For added flavour you can add whizzed berries or tropical fruit before fermenting or afterward.

Nutrition notes:

Enjoy in moderation as this is high in calories but also very high in enzymes, gut-friendly probiotics and healthy fats that are necessary for skin, hair, nerve and heart function.
