Making your own coconut yogurt is probably way easier than you think, and is definitely one of the best options to get your healthy dose of probiotics. It will stay in the fridge for about 4-5 days. I love making a big batch over the weekend, so I get enough for the whole week ;-)

  1. Just curious – – Can I use a can of coconut milk instead? Or a can of coconut water and some desiccated coconut? Also, can I use a bit of commercial yogurt for probiotic – – or lemon juice, as I am sometimes told to use??? This recipe looks delightful, but I have arthritis and Carpal Tunnel and I am not strong enough to handle a whole fresh coconut. Thank you so much.
