Make Your Own Dairy-Free Greek Yogurt at Home!

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :

It’s a good time to be dairy-free and a yogurt fan. Five years ago, anyone looking to grab this convenient breakfast would have had a tough time finding even one dairy-free version at the grocery store.

Oh, how the times have changed! These days, the demand for creamy, dairy-free yogurt has skyrocketed and big brands are honoring customer desires. Old staple brands such as So Delicious, Daiya, and Silk each offer their own line of plant-based yogurt and newcomers such as Forager, Kite Hill, and Good Karma have jumped on board with cashew, almond, and flax-based yogurts. Heck, soon we’ll even be able to get vegan yogurt on the go in a convenient squeeze tube, just like when we were kids.

But one variety of yogurt has eluded followers of plant-based diets thus far: Greek yogurt. While So Delicious does make a line of plant-based Greek yogurt (and Ripple Foods, the makers of the first line of pea protein milk, have plans to launch their own line of pea protein-based Greek yogurt) it is not as readily available in stores as other varieties. What’s a Greek yogurt lover to do? That’s where we come in. We browsed through recipes in the Food Monster App (only the best vegan food app, ever!) and came out victorious with a recipe for Coconut Greek Yogurt:

This Coconut Greek Yogurt by Karen Kitto is luxuriously thick and creamy. Even better: it’s made with only three ingredients.Homemade Coconut Greek Yogurt

Karen made this Coconut Greek Yogurt using full-fat coconut milk, guar gum (an ingredient made from guar beans that acts as a thickener and stabilizer), and a starter of a few tablespoons of plant-based coconut yogurt. You will also need a sterilized glass mason jar. Simply scoop the fat of the coconut milk into a saucepan and warm to room temperature. Add the store-bought coconut yogurt and stir to combine, then transfer the mixture to the sterilized jar. Cover with the lid, then let your coconut yogurt rest for up to a day — it should smell like yogurt at this point.

After a day, pour the mixture into your blender with guar gum, which acts as a thickener, and blend! Homemade Coconut Greek Yogurt

Transfer the mixture back to the jar and pop it into the fridge to chill. Now you’re ready to use your homemade Greek Coconut Yogurt! We recommend incorporating it into a parfait, serving it with granola, or adding a scoop on top of your favorite smoothie bowl recipe.
