I have to say this is not my recipe, BUT it is the easiest and best I’ve found. I discovered it on the site, thekitchn.com. It’s really amazing and has never failed. So my thanks goes out to Faith at thekitchn.com! Oh yeah, don’t let the 12-16 hours scare you. You’ll be sleeping anyway. Make it after dinner when the oven is not in use. Evening is the perfect time for me. I turn the oven light off and put the yogurt in the fridge on my way out the door to work. But if you work 12 hours, stick it in the oven before leaving for work. Check it when you come home, then slide it in the fridge after dinner.
You’ll need to have your carton of coconut cream in the fridge over night before your begin this recipe. I keep a couple cartons in my fridge all the time. I suggest you do this as well because I believe this will become a regular for you. Be sure it is pure coconut cream with no additives (65% or more Cream). Do not use the store bought coconut drink. This will not work.
You will need the right probiotic. Make sure it has at least 25 billion or more with at least 10 probiotic stains. Thekitchn.com recommends the brand “Now”. I use this brand as well, but I’ve had great success using other brands too.
One more thing…this yogurt is a wonderful base for creating all kinds of dips, sauces and marinades! Some muffin recipes call for yogurt and this is a perfect dairy free replacement.
