If you like yogurts here is a super easy way to do it yourself. All you need is water, probiotics and nuts. We had Vivomixx probiotics, which is vegan and we used one bag to 200g nuts.
First recipe we tried with cashews and another with mixed nuts. Yogurt made of cashews was slightly softer and had creamier texture and flavour. So we recommend to use cashews for unflavoured and lighter recipes and for strong flavours like chocolate we recommend mixed nuts. A versatile diet is always healthier so we recommend varying ingredients and use for example cashews, mixed nuts, coconut cream and maybe even bananas could do the work also (yet to try out). It’s interesting to know what will work and what will not, and we will definitely try out variations in the future. Now there’s no need to wait for vegan yogurt or new flavours made of different raw materials anymore because you can do it all easily by yourself. Sour taste was very welcome in our diet. Now you really can make it sour because all yogurts what you find in markets seems to have sugar about half of its weight.
200g of nuts (dry weight, soaked in 6-8 hours)
Bag of Vivomixx / or approx. 2 capsules of probiotics
water (the amount of water depends what result you want, more thinner yogurt or thicker, or even curd)
1. Rinse and soak the nuts for 6-8 hours. 6 hours cashew nuts and mixed for 8 hours.
2. Rinse the soaked nuts and pour into a blender. Add water if needed. Mix until you have smooth creamy mass.
3. When the mixture is about room temperature in degrees, add the lactic acid probiotics in the end and blend the mixture in the blender just quick that it’s all even.
4. Pour into a jar and put cheese cloth on top. Leave the jar in a draft-free place at room temperature. Let the bacteria affect 20-24 hours. The finished yogurt can be put in the cold.
5. Season as you like! Yogurt in the picture is unflavoured but decorated with pear, cinnamon and hemp seeds. Yummy!
