Easy Step-by-Step Fermented Yogurt Recipe

Easy Step-by-Step Fermented Yogurt Recipe

There are a wide variety of fermented foods, which we eat in our diet including sauerkraut, tempeh, miso, and a staple of most North America diets – yogurt.

As mentioned in this blog post about the many benefits fermented food offers, we touched on how yogurt specifically has Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus that are responsible for yogurts health-promoting properties.

Yogurt is typically produced by bacterial fermentation of dairy milk, however, there are other alternatives such as coconut yogurt, which we will give you a special recipe for.

Did you know that making coconut yogurt at home is surprisingly simple? Fermented coconut yogurt is very nutritious and rich in fiber and minerals. We have a simple two-step recipe with only two ingredients giving you a delicious and simple snack, dessert or breakfast. 

This coconut yogurt features Living Alchemy’s Your Flora Probiotics – the next that are made with an exclusive Kefir-kombucha fermentation.

Just follow these simple steps and you and Your Flora will enjoy!

Ingredients:

  1. Coconut Cream
  2. Your Flora Family Probiotics 

Two Steps:

  1. Prepare: Refrigerate a can of full-fat coconut milk for a minimum of 12 hours.  Scoop off all the coconut cream from the top of the can and place in a glass jar. Mix in 2 tablespoons of the coconut water left from the bottom of the can. Add more coconut water if you prefer a thinner texture of yogurt.
  2. Mix: Using Living Alchemy’s Your Flora Family, made with organic bananas and Canadian blueberries from British Columbia, twist open 6 capsules into a small bowl and stir the powder into the coconut cream. Make sure there are no lumps of powder and everything is mixed well.
  1. Ferment: Cover the jar with a clean dish cloth or cheesecloth and secure with an elastic band. Place in a room temperature area, out of direct sunlight, for 12 hours. If you like yogurt that’s more tart, let it ferment for longer.
  1. Refrigerate: Place the jar in the fridge once you’ve reached your desired taste.

(Optional) to make it even better….

Top yogurt with your favorite fresh or dried fruits, nuts, granola, cacao or stir in chia seeds to make chia pudding. Add organic, raw honey for more medicinal benefits and as a natural sweetener.
