• Coconut Milk Probiotic Yogurt

     

    Yogurt is a fermented food, which contains one or more strains of friendly gut bacteria. This fermentation process improves the nutritional quality of any milk you use, resulting in about 20% more protein, and lots of enzymes and probiotics that can help your immunity, and digestion.

     

    Ingredients

    • 2 (14 ounce), organic, full-fat, coconut milk
    • 4 high-quality probiotic capsules

    *Optional

    • 2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
    • 1 Tbsp. pure vanilla extract

    Preparation Method

    1. Pour coconut milk contents into a 1 litre glass mason jar. 
    2. Twist open probiotic capsules, and pour into the coconut milk (discard the capsule’s casing).
    3. Add maple syrup + vanilla. Whisk to combine. Cover jar with cheese cloth, and allow to set at room temp. for 24 hrs (out of direct sunlight). 
    4. Pop yogurt into fridge, and chill for about 6 hrs. It will become thicker as it chills. Keep in fridge for up to 2 weeks.
