The best way to eat coconut 'yogurt' is by culturing it first, like Lexie does here. However, when we're running short on time, we make this recipe instead. This dairy-free yogurt tastes amazingly like the real thing. It's thick, not overly sweet and somehow has that tangy aftertaste of a cultured food. The secret lazy ingredient is the added pro-biotic cultures.
Lazy Strawberry Coconut 'Yogurt' (makes 6 cups or ~12 servings)
1 can organic coconut milk (we use Native Forest)
1 organic avocado
1 organic banana
2 cups strawberries, fresh or frozen
In a blender, mix all ingredients until smooth. Store in the fridge for 3-5 days. Use it anywhere you would in place of traditional yogurt.
**The amount of pro-biotics you add will depend on what brand you're using. Divide the instructed pro-biotic dose by 12 servings to determine how much you should add. For example, 1/4 tsp per person multiplied by 12 servings would equal 3 teaspoons.
