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?
– 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 very full 1/4 cup of cashews with a couple tbsp of non dairy milk but you can do a full 1/2 cup of cashews and no non dairy milk for a thick fluffy yogurt or 1/4 cup cashews and 4tbsp non dairy milk for a runnier yogurt.
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.
