Steps On How To Make Coconut Yoghurt

  1. Heat coconut milk over medium heat to 50 – 55°C while stirring.
  2. Mix thickener and sugar. Then add ½ cup (125 mL) of heated coconut milk and mix to a smooth paste.
  3. Add the paste to the pot and mix well with a whisk.
  4. Heat and continue to stir until the mixture starts to thicken. Transfer to the jar.
  5. Cool to 40°C in an ice bath before adding yoghurt culture.
  6. Leave in a warm place (35 – 40°C) for 15 – 20 hours to ferment.
  7. Test if the yoghurt is slightly sour and has thickened. If not, ferment for an extra 5 hours.
  8. Place it in the fridge, where you may store it for up to 2 weeks. It will thicken up even more in the fridge.
  9. Summing up… It’s done! Enjoy!
* I use the Easiyo jar and maker to maintain the yoghurt temperature.
