Almond Coconut Yogurt
Homemade Yogurt...Delicious and Nutritious!!!
Benefits: A powerful living cultured yogurt with all of the essential nutrients predigested so it’s much easier to assimilate, metabolize and convert into energy, muscle, hair, skin and bones and keep the system running clean and efficient.
Benefits of Coconuts: Young coconuts are one of the greatest health treats on the planet! The water contained in young coconuts is nature’s filtered water, and the meat contains essential fatty acids that fight Candida, bacteria, and aid greatly in enhancing overall health. Call or shop around to the Asian markets in your area to find them.
Blend really well. Using a basic 8 inch strainer, sift the yogurt through this to make sure no coconut chips remain or almond skin and allow it to get as creamy as possible. A batter spatula works well here. Pour the mixture into a container. Allow the mixture to stand, covered with a paper towel, for 3 hours on a warm day and 4-6 hours on a cool day; sometimes even longer. This will allow time for fermentation to break down of the the nutrients into micro-nutrients.
Use the nut culture on fruit, in smoothies, pates, salad dressings, or eat plain. Seal and store the remainder in the refrigerator (keep Probiotic powder in the refrigerator also). The nut culture will keep up to a 3 or 4 days in the fridge and will continue to get more cultured each day.
Eat from 1 to 2 cups each day.
Keep about 2 tablespoons of the mixture back (“starter) to add to the next batch, which will produce a more active culture – and in a shorter amount of time. You will not need to use probiotic powder if you are using a small amount from the previous batch.
