Coconut Yogurt Recipe [THM S]
Prep time
Total time
Looking for a dairy free alternative to yogurt? This coconut yogurt recipe is an easy two step process that will give you great results- it's creamy, has great texture, and even has probiotics!
Serves: 6½ cups
  • 5 cups unsweetened coconut milk-carton or homemade-lowfat
  • 1 tablespoon gelatin- I like this brand that's grassfed beef gelatin!
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 13.5 ounce can full fat coconut milk
  • 4 probiotic capsules of your choice. (I use this brand)
  • Special tools: immersion blender or regular blender
  1. PHASE ONE: Measure out 1 cup of the unsweetened carton or homemade coconut milk into a small bowl. Sprinkle the tablespoon of gelatin over the coconut milk and allow to "bloom" (hydrate)
  2. Meanwhile, heat remaining 4 cups of unsweetened coconut milk in a medium saucepan until just beginning to simmer. Remove from heat.
  3. Whisk gelatin mixture to remove most of the lumps, and whisk into the warmed coconut milk.
  4. Add vanilla extract and stir to blend all.
  5. Pour into two 4 cup containers or one 8 cup container. There should be a good amount of headspace left for step 2. I recommend using wide mouth canning jars if you're going to use an immersion blender, or standard mouth mason jars to use a regular blender.
  6. Cover and chill your jars until the coconut mixture is congealed. If you used carton milk, it may separate at this stage, but your finished product will be just fine.
  7. PHASE TWO: Once your yogurt is congealed, divide the can of full fat coconut milk between your containers, and add the probiotic powder.
  8. Blend with an immersion blender until smooth and creamy. Or alternatively, stir the gelatin mixture up by hand to loosen, and attach a normal blender base onto your standard size mason jar and blend until smooth.
  9. Chill and enjoy!
THM note: This recipe would be an S on the Trim Healthy Mama plan, and would add about 15 grams of fat per 8 oz. serving.
This recipe has lasted two weeks in my fridge, and it will begin to take on a nice yogurt-y cultured flavor as it ages.
