I have been experimenting with this Coconut Yogurt Recipe for some time now but today I am sharing with you the version I like the best. It is a thin and runny yogurt which is easily drinkable wich is great on busy mornings.

If you prefer thicker yogurt you can place the coconut milk into the fridge over night and only use the thick coconut cream that sits on top and use the thinner milk and water for you smoothie.

Or you could try this recipe by Beth from Tasty Yummies.

What is coconut milk? 
The white flesh of a brown coconut is grated and soaked in little water to dissolve the fat present in the meat. Then the coconut milk is strained through a cheesecloth. When making fresh coconut milk you get different products in different stages of the process – Coconut cream, thin and thick milk.
The coconut milk we buy in cans is a mix of both thick and thin milk along with some coconut water.
Coconut milk is lactose-free but high in fat.

I recommend using organic full fat canned coconut milk for this recipe.
You can find probiotics capsules at health stores and larger supermarkets.

  3. Pour both cans of the Coconut milk into a large bowl, whisk lightly together.
  4. Sprinkle the powder inside the probiotic capsules over and stir together until combined.
