Vegan Yogurt

This non-dairy yogurt is prepared with pectin and calcium water. Working with non-dairy milks can be a bit tricky, and some brands of ingredients may work better than others. This recipe was tested with several brands of pectin and only Pomonas brand yielded satisfactory results.


Ingredients


Instructions 

  1. Add pectin powder to 1 cup room-temperature coconut milk. Blend in blender until well combined. Set aside.
  2. Heat remaining 2½ cups coconut milk in a saucepan with the calcium water. Heat to 140ºF.
  3. Add reserved milk and pectin. Return to 140ºF, then remove from heat.
  4. When milk is cooled to 110°F, sprinkle vegan yogurt starter over milk and stir well. Pour into a clean 1-quart glass jar and cover, or pour into your yogurt maker jars and follow manufacturer's directions.
  5. Culture for 6-8 hours at 105º-112ºF.
  6. Shake or stir and refrigerate. Yogurt will not thicken until after refrigeration time. Thickening may take up to 24 hours.

 

Please note:

Some alternative milks have added calcium. If the milk thickens in the blender when pectin is added, do not use calcium water. Doing so can result in overly thickened yogurt.

 

*Each box of Pomona's Universal Pectin includes pectin and a separate packet of monocalcium phosphate
