Coconut Yogurt

Coconut Yogurt is a great dairy-free alternative to your favorite breakfast parfait or afternoon snack. With only two ingredients, it’s so easy and incredibly delicious! Yogurt is packed with gut-promoting probiotics so you can enjoy this coconut yogurt knowing it’s supporting a healthy belly! Suggested toppings and ad-ins listed below. Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 1 (13.5 oz) can full fat unsweetened coconut milk – I recommend Whole Food’s 365 brand or any smooth, non-lumpy coconut milk
  • 2 (30 billion) probiotic capsules – I highly suggest the brand Renew Life Ultimate Flora – can be found at Target or on Amazon

suggested toppings/ad-ins

  • Maple syrup – to sweeten
  • Shredded coconut
  • Blueberries or strawberries- muddled or fresh
  • Granola
Directions
  1. Shake coconut milk before opening to combine any separation – open and place in glass container (mason jars work well)
  2. Use whisk to smooth out clumps
  3. Next, open probiotic capsules and add probiotic powder to coconut milk
  4. Stir with wooden or plastic spoon – metal can mess with the probiotic activation
  5. Place cheesecloth or very thin towel over top of jar and secure with rubber band
  6. Store yogurt on counter for 24 – 48 hours (48 for more tangy yogurt) wrap in kitchen towel to ensure enough warmth for the probiotic activation – also, don’t worry if your yogurt isn’t as thick as you’d like, the fridge does wonders for thickening
  7. Remove cheesecloth and tightly seal with lid – place in fridge and wait at least 12 hours to enjoy!
