Yes, you can absolutely make your own non-dairy yogurt at home! And you should try it!

It’s pretty simple to make, cost-effective, and has many health benefits.

4-Ingredient Probiotic Oat Yogurt [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan


  • 1 cup gluten-free oats, soaked 12 hours
  • 1/4 cup water from 1 young Thai coconut
  • Meat from 2 young Thai coconuts
  • 6 probiotic capsules
  • Pinch of sea salt, optional


  1. Soak the oats in filtered water for 12 hours. Soaking the oats will allow the starches to break down which improves digestibility. Also, it gives the yogurt creamy texture.
  2. Drain the oats from their soaking water and rinse them thoroughly under cool running water.
  3. Place clean oats, coconut water, young coconut meat, probiotics (break the capsule and use only the powder inside), and salt into a high-speed blender.
  4. Blend until it reaches smooth yogurt-like consistency.
  5. Pour the mixture into two sealable glass jars. Cover and let sit at least 3 to 4 hours on a warm day and 4 to 6 hours on a cool day. This will allow the probiotics to start to proliferate and break down the yogurt. The longer you let it sit, the tangier it will be. Store in the refrigerator and enjoy with granola, in smoothies, salad dressings, or it eat plain.


Keep about 2 tablespoons of the mixture back (starter) to add to the next batch, which will produce a more active culture 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.

Always use wooden spoon or spatula (no metal please).
