EU mama's Avatar EU mama 10:33 AM 01-09-2011

Hi Ladies I am new to this whole healthy living thing.I have decided that I do not want our family eating anymore milk and soy so I am cutting it all out from our diet as soon as the cheese in the house runs out. However I would love to make some non dairy milk  and yogurt. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do this? Thanks!

In the USA, Soy Delicious makes "So Delicious" coconut-milk based yogurt. I'm not sure what is available in the EU.

The So Delicious Coconut Milk yogurt is amazing! When it comes to making, though, I have little to no advise. I attempted to make coconut milk yogurt once and it was so runny. I would love to see what other suggestions are out there!

I make coconut milk yogurt. It's not that hard. You need a thickener (I use tapioca starch). That way it can be used as a sub for sour cream on potatoes and in other savory dishes (like cream of mushroom soup) which I don't think the commercial coconut milk yogurts will do since they're sweetened.

kj, could you please share some tips! I used tapioca starch and it was still rather runny...

I am also very interested in making non-dairy, non-soy yogurt.  Coconut milk yogurt is just to expensive at the store. The ones I have made were ridiculously runny too.


My kids drink mostly hemp milk - but because it is also very expensive store bought, I am trying to introduce coconut and almond milk to them. My 3 year old has only had breast milk and hemp milk and does not like any other types.

If you go to my profile, and look at my new blog address, it's on there. I had a blog, that was hacked twice - it used to be in my signature but I can't figure out how to update the profile now to put the new address in. And my blog administrator (my brother) said it was locked up so I'm starting a new one. The yogurt was one of the first ones I put in (just started the new blog yesterday). I make a batch about once every 2 weeks. My yogurt maker, Euro Cuisine, makes 6 5 oz. jars.
