You guyyys!!  I have been trying to find the perfect vegan yogurt recipe for so long and I have finally done it!! What makes it perfect, you ask?

– Affordable
– No yogurt maker required
– No sugar needed (we don’t sweeten this at all and even my 3 1/2 year old loves it)
– Tastes tangy and delicious
– Contains probiotics
– Creamy, not too runny

I’ve no joke made this yogurt every week for the past month or so! My kids love it and so do I. I also love that you can adjust the ingredients a bit to get the exact consistency that YOU like. I usually do a scant 1/2 cup of cashews with a few tbsp of non dairy milk but play around with it and see what you like best! I’ve made this yogurt using various brands of canned coconut milk and they have all worked out just fine. Thrive Market is my favourite or I like 365 Everyday Value from Whole Foods a lot. Even “lite” canned coconut milk should still work!

This yogurt is a great source of healthy fats which are important for all of us but especially babies and toddlers since fat supports the developing brain! There’s no sugar unless you decide to add some. Many store bought sugars are SO SWEET and the unsweetened ones can taste so plain! This yogurt is still full of flavour even without added sugar. I also find a lot of store bought yogurts can have a lumpy texture which I hate! This yogurt is smooth and creamy.  The added probiotics help it to ferment and give it that classic tangy flavour PLUS they are so great for you- probiotics support pretty much every function in your body!

Letting it ferment for a day!

After a day of fermenting it should have some bubbles.

The PERFECT Vegan Yogurt Recipe

  1. Add the coconut milk, cashews and plant based milk to a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Empty the probiotic capsules into the yogurt and stir.
  3. Pour the yogurt into a glass container, cover with a breathable cloth (cheese cloth works great but a dish towel will work too) and place it somewhere warm. I just keep mine near my stove.
  4. After 12-24 hours (24 hours make for a tangier yogurt which I like), stir your yogurt and place in the fridge for at least a few hours to let it thicken. If you feel like it's way too thick for your liking, re blend it with some plant mylk and place back in the fridge.
  5. Enjoy! This should last up to a week in the fridge. If you want to sweeten it, do it AFTER it has fermented.
