It totally worked!
I made the coconut milk yogurt using this method
, without adding the gelatin. I used one can of coconut milk, full fat. (I used one non-dairy probiotic capsule b/c I don't have the yogurt starter, and it has worked for me in the past, and worked fine this time as well. I don't know how 'safe' it is, I'm kind of wild when I'm experimenting w/ cooking
After a/b 24 hours of incubating I took the jar of (liquidy) yogurt out of my little yogurt maker, and added 2 TBS chia seeds. I let it sit for an hour, then put it in my blender w/ some vanilla extract, raw honey, and added some frozen strawberries. Then I put it all in the fridge for a few hours to help the gel set a bit more.
SOOOO yummy! You can feel the little seeds, so adding the strawberries (which also have seeds) made it taste more 'normal' to me--you kind of expect seeds in strawberry yogurt, you know? Totally delicious, and from what I'm reading, more nutritious than yogurts I've made in the past! I can't taste any extra chia seed flavor--just yummy cocoyo goodness!
I might add another TBS of chia seedsnext time to make it a little thicker...I'll update when I try it again!
And thanks for posting Kathy's recipe, I'll have to try that sometime too!
