With everyone sick at home we’ll all been drinking coconut water to stay hydrated. My kids love drinking coconut water from actual coconuts so we got a couple for them at the farmers market. From the “leftovers” which is the coconut meat, I made yogurt last night.  I posted picture of it on Instagram and I got request for recipe so here it is.

coconut yogurt

Meat from 4 young coconut

juice from 1/2 young coconut

1 tsp agave nectar

1 tbs coconut butter, soften

2 tsp raw apple cider vinegar or lemon juice

2 tsp non-dairy probiotic powder

Seeds scraped out from 1/2 vanilla bean

Place everything in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Place in yogurt maker or in a warm place and let it ferment for at least 5 hours. (yesterday I could not find my yogurt maker so I put yogurt in glass jars on top of crook pot that was cooking beans) .

Place in fridge to cool it down before eating it. Eat it like it is or add fruit to it for a fruity flavor.

    That sounds amazingly yummy! Making it from scratch has always scared me. But this seems doable. Thanks!
