I have been wanting to make yogurt for some time, as I grew up in a home where homemade yogurt was the only yogurt we consumed. But I have a daughter with a dairy sensitivity so I wanted to make a coconut yogurt that not only tasted great but was actually thick and delicious like the greek yogurts available now. Many of the coconut yogurts on the market are delicious but the stabilizers and gums don’t always agree with me. So I needed to get creative and find a solution.
I was grateful to find a recipe that worked and for my Instant Pot that made it possible. (An Instant Pot is an amazing device that is a yogurt maker, rice cooker, steamer, pressure cooker, slow cooker, warming pot and sautes all in one. It’s amazing and has helped me make delicious foods in minutes compared to hours…and I have no affiliation with this company, just a big fan).
So, I made a great recipe from Amanda Naturally (not me…but a wonderful Holistic Nutritionist that makes delicious recipes). I followed her recipe but instead of using a yogurt starter I used 3 probiotic capsules from my favourite probiotic and 2 tbsp of local maple syrup. I also used a smidge more gelatin as I like my yogurt thick but may stick to the recipe next time.
It’s delicious and a great alternative for anyone wanting to make a dairy alternative yogurt that really tastes wonderful. See what you think.
