Make Your Own Coconut Yogurt

This non-dairy alternative yogurt is incredibly easy to make! It’s so creamy and SO yummy! All you’ll need is:

2 – 400ml cans of full fat coconut milk

4 – probiotic capsules OR 1/2 cup of non-dairy yogurt from a previous batch

A quart sized glass container or jar w/ an airtight lid

Clean piece of cloth to cover your jar


Empty the cans of milk into the jar, break open your probiotic capsules (or add your 1/2 cup yogurt) and stir really, really well. Don’t worry if you see little bits of the probiotic powder in the milk, it will dissolve on its own. Wipe the rim of your jar clean and cover it with your cloth. Set it aside in a warm place out of direct sunlight and let it sit for 12 – 48 hours.

Now we wait!

The longer you let it sit, the tangier your yogurt will be. Once it’s fermented to your liking, cover with an airtight lid and put it in the fridge (I usually make mine on the evening of day 1 and refrigerate it on the morning of day 3). Once it’s chilled, the yogurt will thicken up a bit and have a similar consistency to full fat Greek yogurt. I recommend using it within a couple weeks, although I’ve had batches go much longer than that and they’ve been perfectly fine.

I’ve tried 3 different brands of coconut milk and the Whole Foods 365 one is my favourite. It’s very smooth, tastes the best and it’s inexpesive. If you’re like me and live very far away from most things or just love Amazon, you can grab it here. As for probiotics, you can get them at any pharmacy or health food store (or here.)
