Cook With Jess
Yogurt is rich with beneficial microorganisms that support a variety of wellness processes such as:
regular bowel movements
2 cans full fat coconut milk
1 yogurt starter OR 2 capsules of your favorite probiotic supplement
In a GLASS bowl – DO NOT USE METAL – add the coconut milk (cream and liquid).
Use a silicone whisk or wooden spoon to break up the cream into small pieces (as small as possible!)
Add yogurt starter.
If you are swapping in a probiotic capsule, then open the capsule and pour the contents into the bowl. Discard the outer shell.
Cover the bowl with a clean, lint free napkin or towel. The towel should not touch the yogurt, just lay across the top of the bowl.
Place the bowl in a room temperature, dark place, away from sunlight (the corner of a kitchen or in a closed cabinet).
After 24 hours, mix the contents of the bowl and replace to the area.
After 48 hours, the yogurt should be thicker.
IT IS NOW YOGURT! THE FIRST BATCH WILL BE THIN in texture… it will NOT be like greek yogurt. THIS IS TOTALLY NORMAL!
In order to get a thicker consistency, use 2 tbsp of your new yogurt in a NEW batch of yogurt in place of the starter or capsules. Repeat the process.
The second batch should be thicker. You can even add the yogurt to a nut milk bag or cheese cloth to drain excess liquid.
Season with stevia, cinnamon, and fruit for desired flavor!
