Homemade Yogurt (Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free)
My goal for this recipe was to make an easy, cost-effective, healthy and delicious yogurt, and I feel confident that I’ve achieved this.
I recently discovered how to make my own yogurt at home and it’s a complete game changer. I seriously don’t see myself buying yogurt from the store ever again. It’s not only easy and relatively cheap to make, but you also get the assurance that it’s free from additives, preservatives and heaps of sugar.
There are lots of great dairy-free and dairy-based yogurt recipes out there, but I really wanted to create a recipe that is as simple as possible. You don’t need any fancy materials, culture starter, or expensive probiotics at all to make this. Don’t get me wrong, I think cultured yogurt is awesome and GREAT for your gut, but my goal for this recipe was to make it easy and cost effective- and I feel confident that I’ve achieved this.
I’m a big sucker for parfaits. I love the combination of creamy yogurt, crisp granola, fresh fruit and a big dollop of my favorite nut butter. Unfortunately, so many of the typical ingredients are incredibly high in sugar, making this a snack that makes me feel sluggish and fatigued after eating.
My favorite way to eat this refined-sugar and dairy-free yogurt is with some granola that makes me feel GREAT! I’m obsessed with The Kitchun’s grain-free granola. It has fabulous ingredients, is so delicious and the company is a giving, generous company full of amazing people.
Try this homemade yogurt with the granola, fruit & nut butter combo and let me know how you get on in the comments over on the BGW Facebook or Insta pages!
