It’s really easy to make rich and creamy 3-ingredient homemade cashew yogurt without yogurt maker. You can forget about store bought vegan yogurt that usually contains unwanted additives.
Homemade Cashew Yogurt [Vegan]
- 1 cup raw cashews
- 4/5 cups filtered water
- 1–2 probiotic capsules
- First, soak the cashews for 2-3 hours. Feel free to soak them overnight, just be sure to place them in the fridge. Over soaking cashews can lead to bitterness, slimy water and a leaching of their flavour. For quick soaking, pour hot water over cashews and let sit for 15 minutes.
- Next, rinse and drain the soaked cashews, place them in blender or mixing beaker and pour lukewarm or slightly warm filtered water over them. Then, process until you have smooth mixture.
- Now, take a capsule with probiotic powder, empty it into the cashew cream and blend until the powder is well incorporated.
- Finally, transfer the cashew cream into clean jar and close the lid loosely. Alternatively, cover with clean cloth and fix with a rubber band. You’ll have some space in the jar for yogurt to rise as it ferments. Let it sit on countertop for 24 hours and then refrigerate. You’ll already see bubbles forming after 12 hours.
