Dairy-Free Coconut Almond Yogurt
Prep time
Total time
A dairy-free, powerful living cultured yogurt and a real treat! It requires some arm work, but trust me—it’s all worth it. This Coconut Almond Yogurt is delicious as is or when added to smoothies, sauces or salad dressings! (Please note that the Prep time is hands on time only. You will need to allow time for soaking and culturing. Read the Instructions before beginning. Also, be sure to sterilize all of your equipment in advance as you would do with any yogurt recipe.)
Serves: 2 servings
  • 1 cup (170 g) raw almonds or other nuts, soaked
  • Water from 1 young Thai coconut
  • Meat from 2 young Thai coconuts
  • 6 probiotic capsules
  1. Soak the raw almonds in filtered water for 24 hours. Soaking the nuts is crucial as this will activate the dormant enzymes and release the nutrients.
  2. Drain the almonds from their soaking water and rinse them thoroughly under cool running water.
  3. Place the clean almonds, coconut water, young coconut meat and the powder from the priobiotic capsules into a high-speed blender.
  4. Blend until the ingredients form a smooth yogurt-like consistency.
  5. Pour the mixture into two sealable glass jars, filling only ⅔ of the way full. Cover and let sit at least 3 to 4 hours on a warm day and 4 to 6 hours on a cool day. This will allow the probiotics to start to proliferate and break down the yogurt.
  6. The longer you let it sit, the tangier it will be. Store in the refrigerator and enjoy with granola, in smoothies, in salad dressings or eat it plain.
