Coconut Yogurt

By Fredrica Syren

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.
