Are you eating plant-based but missing good-for-you, probiotic-rich yogurt? This yogurt made from coconut milk is entirely vegan and just as creamy and delicious as dairy yogurt. Use it in place of traditional yogurt in recipes, add it to a smoothie or layer it into a parfait.

  • 2 (14 ounce) cans full-fat coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons tapioca starch
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 probiotic capsules (20 billion CFU) (about ½ teaspoon)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Before beginning, sanitize all tools and jars you will use for making the yogurt.
  2. Empty cans of coconut milk into a medium saucepan and whisk well to incorporate. (If the cream part of the coconut milk is thick, transfer the coconut milk to a blender and puree until smooth.) Remove ½ cup of the coconut milk and place in a small bowl.
  3. Add tapioca starch to the reserved ½ cup coconut milk and whisk until well incorporated. Stir this mixture and sugar into the coconut milk in the pot. Heat the mixture until scalding (180°F). Remove from the heat and let cool, stirring occasionally, until the temperature has reached 100°F. Empty the contents of the probiotic capsules into the pot and whisk to combine.
  4. Divide the coconut mixture among 4 sterilized 8-ounce jars and place the lids on the jars.
  5. Keep the yogurt warm with your preferred method: yogurt maker, dehydrator set to 110°F, or an oven that's about 105°F (leave the oven light on until this temperature is reached). If using the oven, wrap the jars in a towel to help insulate them.
  6. Let the yogurt rest in the yogurt maker, dehydrator or oven for 12 to 24 hours. (The longer it rests, the tangier it will be.) Transfer the yogurt to the refrigerator and wait 24 hours for it to cool and thicken.
  • To make ahead: Store finished yogurt in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  • Equipment: Four 8-ounce jars with lids
