Pure coconut yogurt!

We’re forever exploring and experimenting with new ways to make coconut yogurt. Currently the Luvele recipe blog has six different methods catering to every dietary need. Most recipes call for canned coconut milk which is, unquestionably, easy and convenient. However, canning is an industrial process that requires high heat and diminishes some of the amazing, inherent enzymatic qualities of coconut.

At the other end of the spectrum we have our raw coconut yogurt, made completely from scratch. But, we know not everyone cares to hammer open drinking coconuts to get their daily dose of coconut yogurt!

So, we’re excited to bring you a frozen coconut method that is the equal of raw method nutritionally, without all the work. Look for frozen coconut chunks in the freezer section of your supermarket amongst the frozen fruit and berries. Freezing requires zero preservatives and locks in all the goodness. This method also turns out thick and dollopable yogurt without requiring any additional thickeners.

The one essential piece of equipment required when making homemade coconut cream from coconut chunks is a high-speed blender. The smoothness of the cream will depend entirely on the power and quality of the blender blades. The Luvele Vibe Blender System gives you the smoothest coconut cream on the planet. Note: Over the course of blending, the blades will generate heat. Use the Luvele Stainless-steel jug instead of the plastic jug.

Before you begin it is important to sterilise the yogurt making glass jar, lid and any utensils you use, in boiling hot water. The danger of not sterilising is that other bacteria may overpower your culture and affect the quality of your yogurt.
