COCONUT YOGURT MADE WITH AYAM COCONUT CREAM.

By popular demand we’re bringing you another coconut yogurt recipe. It’s dairy free, vegan and Paleo. With so many people choosing coconut yogurt over the dairy variety, we thought we would offer another simple method. This yogurt recipe uses Ayam Coconut cream, which is readily available in supermarkets and Asian grocers. Ayam coconut cream (the green tin) is super thick and creamy to begin with so the result is equally as lovely. Yay no thickener required. This recipe is fast and cheap to make – truly bringing homemade coconut yogurt to the masses!

For other homemade coconut yogurt methods that don’t require any added thickener try these recipes:

Guaranteed perfect coconut yogurt with no added thickener
Coconut yogurt made from frozen coconut chunks
Coconut yogurt made from young drinking coconuts
Date sweetened cashew and coconut yogurt

FEED THE BACTERIA SUGAR!

In traditional dairy milk yogurt the bacteria in starter culture thrive on the sugar content (lactose). Plant-based milk naturally has less sugar than dairy milk, so it is necessary to add a sweetener to the starter culture to promote fermentation. One teaspoon of sugar or one tablespoon of pasteurised honey is enough to kick start fermentation. Raw honey may have an antibiotic effect and is therefore not suitable for making yogurt.
