Yogurt may be one of the best breakfast foods. It’s too bad that packaged yogurt products are replete with artificial flavors and excess sugars. You can easily make your own yogurts with natural, raw vegan ingredients. Normally, our cleanse-approved yogurt recipes use cashews or banana as the base. Both of those ingredients provide optimum creaminess, which helps replicate the texture of real yogurt.
This recipe is a game changer because raw coconut meat makes for the perfect yogurt base. Not only is it inherently sweet, but it offers a unique nuttiness that enhances the flavor of the yogurt. You will have to get your hands on some young Thai coconuts in order to make this recipe, but it’s so worth it. Make sure not to throw away the fresh coconut water because you’ll need it for the blending process.
