Coconut Yogurt

Me and Bella went for an early hike this morning, well I hiked and Bella hung out in the stroller eating breakfast. It felt good to be out early in the morning and working out. But when I got home boy was I hungry. Luckily I had homemade coconut yogurt waiting for me in the fridge. I love yogurt but since I’m not suppose to eat dairy or soy it makes it difficult to find a substitute. I have tried rice and coconut yogurt from the store and they taste awful. But I read in a raw food cook book about making yogurt form almonds and decided to try it on young coconuts instead. It came out so well I love the fact that it’s very good for you. Off course you do need to have yogurt maker to do this one. Coconut water is a natural electrolytes and the meat is very nutritional. We’re so lucky to live where we can buy these little bundle of joy.I buy them already open since opening them can be a challenge.  The yogurt came out with a slight coco sweetness flavor. I mixed in raspberry puree (raspberries mashed up) and topped it with bee pollen. It was very satisfying.
