Coconut Kefir Yogurt

Serves 2


  • 3 young coconuts, at room temperature
  • 2 dairy-free probiotic capsules or 1 tablespoon dairy-free probiotic powder
  • liquid stevia or stevia powder, to taste
  • fresh berries, to serve (optional)


1. Open the coconuts and strain the coconut water into a bowl. Set aside.

2. Scrape out the coconut flesh, trying not to include any husk, and place in a blender. Add the coconut water and blend until creamy — it should have the consistency of yogurt.

3. Pour the mixture into a glass bowl and add the contents of the probiotic capsules or the probiotic powder.

4. Cover the bowl with muslin (cheesecloth), securing it with the elastic band, and put in a cool, dry, dark place for 1 to 2 days. When ready, it should taste fairly sharp without a hint of sweetness.

5. Add stevia to taste, then refrigerate and enjoy over the next 7 days. Serve with fresh berries, if using.
