Raw Coconut Yogurt

This is by far, my favorite yogurt!  I could sit around and eat this stuff all day!

Makes approx. 1-1½ cups.

Ingredients

2 Young Coconuts, meat (should yield approx. 2-2 ½ cups), water reserved

2 tbsp + 2 tsp Fresh Lemon Juice

1 tsp Powdered Probiotics (I used Baby’s Jarro-Dophilus)

Instructions

In a good mini-blender or high-speed blender, combine coconut meat, lemon juice, probiotics and 2-3 tbsp of coconut water.  Blend until completely smooth, adding additional coconut water as needed to facilitate blending and yield a desirable consistency.

Pour into a glass bowl and lightly cover with a towel or perforated lid.  DO NOT suffocate the yogurt with plastic wraps or the like during fermentation.  Yogurt is made possible by living organisms that need to be able to breathe and multiply within it.

Place in a cabinet or dark room at room temperature.  Allow yogurt to ferment for 1 day or up to 2 full days if you like it stronger.  Be sure to sample periodically after the first 24 hours to determine if additional fermentation time is required.

When desired level of fermentation is acquired, cover and refrigerate until ready to enjoy.  Eat within the week.  Note: a grayish or purplish tint indicates spoilage.

Enjoy this yogurt plain and solo, stir in vanilla bean or extract, or enjoy with a pinch of stevia and some fresh mashed berries.
