It’s delicious, surprisingly easy to make, and a great way to bring fermented foods into your diet.

Important Note: If you want to make this fabulous recipe, it’s a fairly long process. It takes three days for the yoghurt to ‘cure’ so make sure if you want to eat it at a certain time you plan ahead!

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 1 500g jar (or any closed container)
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 5 pro-biotic pills
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries
  • drizzle of maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 handful of chopped nuts (optional)

Preparation

1. In a 500g jar, combine coconut milk and a high quality pro-biotic by opening the capsules and pouring the pro-biotic powder directly into the coconut milk. Discard the capsule. Close the lid tightly and shake.

2. Store the jar in a cool, dark corner on your kitchen counter (away from the stove) for three days, shaking periodically. After three days, the yogurt is ready to be served. Or, if you prefer thicker yogurt, you can refrigerate it for up to one week. Refrigerated, thickened yogurt should be stirred prior to serving.

3. When ready to serve, slice up the fresh strawberries and add to the yogurt with a drizzle of pure maple syrup and some chopped nuts. Or, get creative with your own combination of berries, nuts, and granola.

4. Enjoy!
