Rich and creamy, making your own nut yoghurt is healthy and cost effective. Soak your nuts overnight before using. You can use a yoghurt starter kit or probiotic powder to inoculate the yoghurt with beneficial bacteria. Any nuts can be used but almonds or cashew nuts are particularly good.
125g raw almonds, soaked in water for 12 hours then drained
500ml coconut water or water
1 tbsp sweetener (e.g maple syrup, honey)
½ tsp probiotic powder
Place all the ingredients in a high-speed blender, and process until smooth and creamy. Pour into a sanitised glass jar, and set in a warm room for 9-12 hours. It should now taste slightly sour.
Store covered in the fridge for up to a week.
