Yogurt made from coconut milk is fast gaining popularity. It’s an excellent choice for children with dairy allergies or intolerances, however, many of the quality brands at health food stores come with a hefty price tag. Here is a great recipe for anyone wanting to make their own. Not only is it easy to make, but it can be flavored according to your children’s preference – some great options include adding fresh fruit, using it as a layer in parfaits, or use it as the base of frozen homemade popsicles.

Ingredients

Method


800mls of organic coconut milk
2-3 tbs tapioca starch
4 tbs store-bought coconut yoghurt or 4 probiotic capsules
1. In a medium-sized saucepan, add coconut milk and whisk until smooth.
2. Add tapioca and whisk to combine.
3. Heat over medium heat until it starts to simmer.
4. Cook for 5–8 mins over a low heat.
5. Allow to cool, then whisk in the coconut yogurt or probiotic capsules.
6. Pour into clean jars, place the lid on top and put in the oven for 12–24 hours, with the oven light turned on to keep the environment warm.
7. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours before serving.

Tip:
If your oven light doesn’t work, just wrap the jar into a tea towel to keep the temperature even. If you prefer a thicker consistency try using coconut cream instead of milk. You can use 4 tbsp of this yogurt as the starter for your next batch.
