I must say that making your very own coconut yogurt feels like such a huge accomplishment! As I discussed in another blog post, The Benefits of Fermented Foods and How to Eat More of Them, making your own coconut yogurt can be an easy way to get good probiotics and healthy gut-healing properties into your and your family's bellies!
Check out my video above to learn how you can easily make this in 12 hours!
Here's what you need:
Starter Yogurt - This can be a store-bought coconut yogurt like GT's Cocoyo or another clean option. You just need a couple tablespoons. Once your batch is ready you can always use that as your starter to make your next batch!
Coconut Cream - I love Trader Joe's organic canned options. It's affordable and super fatty and yummy! Any coconut cream will do, just make sure it's void of any gums or preservatives!
Hand Mixer or Blender - This is helpful when you have coconut cream that is separated, especially when it's cold... It's good to get the consistency creamy so that the yogurt reflects that texture.
Glass jar with lid - I use a large mason jar. Once the yogurt is ready, put the lid on and store in the refrigerator!
Tea towel or cheese cloth & rubber band - this will go on top of the container to cover the top and keep it free of things we don't want in it!

I love eating is with berries, apples, bananas, and chopped nuts like walnuts & almonds! You can add it to smoothies or acai bowls too! I even use it like a sourcream when I'm eating spicy New Mexican foods! It cuts the heat and adds a fatty and yummy flavor! The more sour the better in that case!
