Making your own dairy-free cultured yogurt at home is simple with our Homemade Coconut Greek Yogurt recipe. These days, there are many yogurt options on grocery store shelves but few options for those who are searching for a wholesome, dairy-free option. Use coconut milk for healthy fats and a creaminess that is only enhanced by the gelling power of our Beef Gelatin. An optional step to culture the yogurt, or allow gut-boosting live cultures to naturally develop in the creamy coconut milk, happens easily overnight with the use of a simple oven light. Add in vanilla and honey for a sweetness that pairs well with fruit, nuts, granola, or is great on its own.
*Note: If choosing not to culture the coconut milk, just pour it into a glass jar after removing the vanilla bean and place it into the refrigerator until fully cooled, 1 hour or more. You'll still end up with a thick and creamy end product but it won't have the tang from live cultures that regular yogurt does.
**Note #2: The coconut milk used can effect the final consistency of your yogurt. Whether the coconut milk has guar gum or not and if so, how much of it, can yield a thicker or thinner yogurt. If your end product is too thick, thin it out with a bit more coconut milk. If it ends up too thin, wait for the next batch to adjust by adding a bit more Beef Gelatin (½ tsp. at a time) until you've got the perfect balance for the coconut milk brand you prefer.
