Equipment

  • Mason jar
  • Cheese cloth
  • Wooden spoon

Ingredients
 

  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk ($1.35)
  • 2 capsules vegan-friendly probiotics ($1.53)
  • 1 clean mason jar
  • 1 wooden spoon

Add-Ins optional

  • Maple syrup, agave, monk fruit, or stevia
  • Fruit, berries, mango, peaches, etc.
  • Vanilla extract or powder
  • Lemon juice or zest

Instructions
 

  • Open the can of coconut milk, and transfer it into a clean glass jar. To properly clean your jar, wash it thoroughly in hot, soapy water. Then, rinse it in hot water and let it dry face down on a clean towel. Let your jar cool completely before pouring the coconut milk in.
  • Open both probiotic capsules, and add the inside contents to the jar of coconut milk. Mix well with a wooden, ceramic, or plastic spoon (avoid metal as it can react with the probiotics). Cover your jar with a cheesecloth or thin tea towel and secure it with an elastic.
  • Keep your jar in a warm place (in an oven with the light on is a prime spot) for 12-36 hrs depending on how tangy you like it. We typically like ours after about 18-20 hours, but yours may need longer.
  • Once the coconut yogurt is to your preferred tanginess, switch out the cheesecloth for a lid and transfer it to your fridge to chill for around 12 hours (overnight is best).
  • Once it's thickened up in your fridge, serve with berries, granola, or on its own for a probiotic-rich snack!

Notes

  • It's important to use a good quality probiotic for the best coconut yogurt results.
  • We like the brand Naturelo, but just make sure you look for the following bacteria: Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium lactis and Streptococcus thermophilus.
  • If you don't have access to vegan-friendly probiotics, you can also add a few spoonfuls of store-bought vegan yogurt or try a vegan yogurt starter kit.
  • The coconut milk brands we've found the best results with are Aroy-D and Savoy.
  • We've had grainy results with Everland.
  • Whichever brand you choose, you want to make sure it has a creamy and smooth consistency to begin with (otherwise you'll end up with a grainy yogurt).
  • Optional ingredients are not reflected in the price or calories of this recipe.
