Scale

Ingredients

Yogurt base:

  • 1 cup fresh young thai coconut, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 cup cashews, soaked for 23 hours
  • 1 capsule of acidophilus powder
  • water for blending

Peach base:

  • 1 1/4 cup fresh peaches, chopped
  • 1  tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp vanilla bean extract
  • 22 1/2 tbsp raw honey or agave
  • 4 medium basil leaves, chopped
  • 3/4 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. After opening your coconut*, make sure to wash and clean the meat well, cutting away any pieces of the inner shell.
  2. Blend coconut meat and cashews well, adding water for consistency. You will need to stop your blender several times to scrape the coconut cashew mixture off of the sides of the blender. Once it is nice and creamy, add your acidophilus powder and blend for 8-10 seconds until it is well incorporated.
  3. Put your yogurt in a glass bowl and cover with a towel, and then put in a dehydrator for 10-12 hours at 85 degrees Fahrenheit. The yogurt will develop a harder shell on the top.
  4. We usually just re-blend it when we add in spices and flavorings. You can, however, remove it if you wish.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy.  Top with your favorite fresh fruits, granola, chopped nuts, coconut flakes, etc.
