Coconut Yogurt Notes

The recipe calls for only TWO main ingredients, one can of full fat coconut cream and two probiotic capsules. I’d call this recipe a mini science experiment as there are some precautions we need to take before starting this process.¬†

Full Fat Coconut Milk

Ensure that the brand of coconut milk doesn’t have more than just the coconut milk and maybe guar gum. There are so many different varieties out there so just ensure you get the FULL FAT and with no added sugar alcohols as these don’t tend to work as well.

Some brands that have worked for me include Native Forest, Whole Foods 365, Simply Organic Target Brand.

The type of probiotic you use will also affect your fermentation time. I have always used a probiotic that has at least 50 billion CFU as these seem to work the best. My favorite brand I use both regularly and in my yogurt can be found here.

We also need to be careful when stirring the probiotics into the coconut milk. Probiotics are sensitive to metals therefore it is best to use a wooden spoon when mixing. If you do use a metal utensil you run the risk of deactivating the probiotics and this will prevent fermentation from occurring.

Berries & Coconut Yogurt

This recipe is super delicious to throw into a bowl with berries and my favorite Spread the Love Raspberry Jam!
