cashew and coconut yogurt

This cashew and coconut combo is a nutritional powerhouse.

We are really excited about this homemade, plant-based, vegan yogurt. It tastes amazing and is so simple to make. This recipe is guaranteed, perfect, tub set, creamy yogurt with no additional thickeners required!

Coconut & cashew yogurt is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, plant-based protein, dietary fibre that will nurture your gut lining, benefit digestion and aid nutrient absorption.

Subtly sweetened with nature’s most delicious fibre-filled fruit, the medjool date, this yogurt has a slight caramel taste that is a treat for both your taste buds and your digestion.

FEED THE BACTERIA SUGAR

In traditional dairy milk yogurt, the bacteria in starter culture thrive on the sugar (lactose) content, naturally found in milk. The bacteria populating your cashew and coconut yogurt must have something to feed on to allow the culturing process to take place. One teaspoon of sugar or one tablespoon of pasteurised honey is enough to kick start fermentation. Raw honey may have an antibiotic effect and is therefore not suitable for making yogurt.

Preparation

Thoroughly wash or sterilise your yogurt container and whisk with boiling water.
