Yoghurt is one of those items that’s almost certainly on hand in our house. Not only is it such an easy addition to breakfast or dessert, but it’s a favourite of the little lady (literally half my photos of this batch featured her hands trying to grab the spoon 🙂 ). This recipe in particular has been a great hit with her. It’s gulped down and smeared everywhere – a sure sign of satisfaction!
I also use this coconut yoghurt in my dairy free Nectarine Frozen Yoghurt – I highly recommend giving that number a whirl some time 🙂 (just make sure you give yourself enough time in your meal planning to make this yoghurt first)
The best part is that this recipe is super easy. And the results are creamy, tangy, a little sweet, and oh-so-moreish! So if you love that coconutty flavour, or are after a dairy-free yoghurt then try it out and let me know what you think
Enjoy your yoghurt making!!
Coconut Yoghurt (makes approx 800ml)
2x 400ml cans full-fat coconut milk
1 tbsp honey (helps the culture)
2 tsp gelatine
probiotics (enough for 50 Billion+ bacteria – that equates to 2 of my capsules which I open and sprinkle in)
Set aside about 1/3 cup of your coconut milk in a small bowl. Sprinkle the gelatine over the coconut milk in the small bowl and allow to sit.
Pour the rest of your coconut milk into a saucepan along with the honey. Heat until beginning to steam (around hot-drink temperature) and the honey has melted.
Add the coconut milk/gelatine mix to the saucepan and stir through until well combined.
Remove from the heat and allow to cool to a lukewarm temperature.
Once it’s cooled to a lukewarm temp, sprinkle over your probiotics and stir/gently whisk through.
Pour the mixture into your chosen jar/container (I use a 1L glass jar which I sterilise in boiling water between uses) then place the jar in your yoghurt maker (or wrap in a tea-towel and store it in the hot-water cupboard) for 24 hours.
Transfer the jar to the refrigerator for storage. It will thicken more as it cools so best if refrigerated for about 6 hours before first eating.
