Non-Dairy Coconut Almond Yogurt
Dairy free, powerful live cultured coconut almond yogurt. Besides coconut almond yogurt being loaded with beneficial bacteria, all of the essential nutrients are predigested so they are much easier to assimilate, metabolize and convert into energy, muscle, hair, skin and bones, and keeps the system running clean and efficient!
Though yogurt can be made with only nuts or seeds only, the young coconuts are one of the greatest health treats on the planet. The water contained in young coconuts is nature’s filtered water and high in electrolytes. The coconut meat contains essential fatty acids that fight Candida, bacteria, and aid greatly in enhancing overall health.
Coconut Almond Yogurt Recipe:
Equipment Needed: high speed blender
Yield: approx 5 cups
- 1 3/4 cups almonds, soaked for 24 hours – you will end up with about 2 cups of soaked almonds (about 8 ounces of almonds – when soaked equals about 2 cups) NOTE: Yogurt can be made with walnuts, pecans, cashews, pumpkin seeds, macadamia, Brazil nuts – be adventurous and try differ versions of this powerful, living food.
- Fresh coconut meat from 1 Young Thai Coconut
- Coconut water from 1 Young Thai Coconut
- 1 teaspoon LiyfBiotic (the culturizing probiotic agent).
- I often add 2 teaspoons of vanilla bean powder
- Add water for desired consistency when you are blending
- Optional: 2 tablespoons LiyfEssentials – complete amino acids / full spectrum vitamin E
1. Place all ingredients into high-speed blender and blend to a smooth consistency – most likely you’ll need to add water to obtain right consistency, so you create a vortex when blending. Pour the mixture into a glass bowl & allow the mixture to stand, covered with a paper towel, for 4-6 hours (this will allow the fermentation).
If temps are warm, 4-5 hours should be adequate, if temps are cooler, 5-6 hours works. (Note: I’ve had the yogurt quickly culture in only a couple hours in hot weather – you can always taste test at different intervals to better learn how to make it in your environment).
**Set your phone alarm or kitchen timer for 4-6 hours to remind you when yogurt is ready. You can often allow it to set a few more hours, but just for the record … I once made it in the morning, forgot about it, and didnt get home till late that night and had to throw the whole thing out.
2. Seal and store in the refrigerator. The yogurt will keep up to 3-4 days but will continue to get more cultured each day. It may have a slight zing to it. If the yogurt turns pink DO NOT EAT IT.
Nut and seed yogurts are sweet tasting yogurts, though if allowed to culture long enough, will begin to develop a more sour taste.
Spoon yogurt over fruit, include in smoothies, or season garlic and onion powder, or savory herbs and use as salad dressings/dips.
One of my favorites to make is coconut pumpkin seed yogurt – see recipe below.
