Yogurt Alternatives?!

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created March 14, 2013 at 8:42 PM

For a long time I have been avoiding dairy unless I can get unpasteurized/unhomogenized grass-fed dairy products. Recently I have a craving for yogurt. I always loved the texture of yogurt and how you can put fruit in it and how it is so yummy. About a week ago I started to purchase Redwood Hill Goat's Yogurt and it taste great! I ate the whole container in one day. That was probably too much yogurt I ate, but does anybody know some good brands as a alternative for yogurt?

Can I use raw milk to make yogurt instead of pasteurized?

Here is a brand of paleo-friendly yoghurt made from coconut milk: http://www.coyo.co.uk/ I tried it once. It's nice but I wouldn't eat it regularly as it's got tapioca starch which I would consider less than optimal.

Why not make it yourself? That way, you can completely control the ingredients. It's also cheaper! You can make it with cow or goat milk, and it's super easy and tasty. I like to make mine with whole milk, sometimes with added cream, and then I strain it so it's super thick and tasty, like Greek-style. Then you have whey left over to do other things with!

PS: I never bother with a thermometer. I just trust the crockpot, and it's always turned out fine. Another thing: I don't even bother with cheesecloth. A coffee filter in a colander works just fine!

Coconut Yogurt and Almond Yogurt

Here is a recipe for Almond, Filbert or Macadamia Nut Yogurt: http://www.pecanbread.com/recipes/almondyogurt.html

Who would have thought it was possible?! Kind of cool, don't you think?

Coconut milk has a very similar consistency and taste as yoghurt. You can eat it plain or flavour it with various things like cacao, fruit, nut butters, stevia, etc.

Make it yourself, it's trivially easy. As an alternative, consider kefir (also home-made).
