NEW THING #44:
Did you know that you can easily make vegan yogurt at home?
Because I didn't.
I always bought it at the store. And I assumed it's difficult to make. Especially the thick Greek-like one.
I mean, I thought they use some fancy machines and intimidating ingredients.
But while taking the cooking classes (New Thing # 34), I learned that yogurt is pretty simple to make with coconut milk & probiotics. Just 2 simple ingredients. That's it!
Still, I don't know about you, but I consider the probiotic capsules the fancy part.
But we were also told that any fermented food contains probiotics, so could also do the trick.
Stuff like miso paste, kimchi, or even yogurt itself (as long as it has live, active cultures).
So I finally decided to try it with sauerkraut, a.k.a. the fermented food I can't live without. And it turned out that it's super simple!
I used the juice & a few tiny pieces of sauerkraut for my first batch. It came out pretty strong, so I used this tangy yogurt as a starter for my next batch, and it worked perfectly.
I also found out that using only the thick part of the coconut milk makes my yogurt more Greek-like.
Anyway, this is how I did it:
Homemade Two Ingredients Coconut Yogurt
It tastes incredible!
I love it with fresh strawberries, mixed with frozen berries, over banana bread, or even plain. Way better than the expensive ones we used to buy at the store.
Totally recommend giving it a try!
