Raw Coconut Yogurt

Thick, creamy, and oh so good, raw coconut yogurt is frickin awesome! I love it! Its that magical meal you can eat all day without gaining a pound and will actually cure you of health problems! Magical bowl of deliciousness. GET IN MY BELLEH!!

Whats for breakfast?

I feel drained of energy. What can I have to fuel me up?
Raw coconut yogurt!

My stomach is kind of upset. What can help my digestion?

Raw coconut yogu......wait a sec.

The recipe is really easy too and not too hard to come by if you have some way of getting your hands on coconut. Even here in Georgia, the local Whole Foods Market carries them. And without that, almost every grocery store around here carries the rest of the ingredients. So sweet! So creamy! I need me some YOGURT!!

Raw Coconut Yogurt
(makes about 3 cups)

6 Thai Coconuts
1/3 c. Virgin Coconut Oil
1/4 c. Lemon Juice
1 tsp. Vanilla
Probiotics (optional)

-Open up the coconuts and pour the water of one of them into your blender. Pour the water from the rest into a container and refrigerate (you can add some probiotics and make coconut kefir!)

-Scrape out the "meat" and add that to your blender with the remaining ingredients.

-Blend until everything is smooth and creamy.

-Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.


This stuff is so GOOD! I even added in some raw almond butter and berries, but this stuff is good as it is! I thought when I went raw, yogurt was completely off my to-eat list. But apparently, this stuff tastes even better than the dairy stuff. And its made of one of nature's most perfect foods, coconut!

Coconut is amazing for your skin (especially coconut oil) due to the oleic acid in it. It also cleanses you, restores your body, and helps you to loose weight by building up your thyroid gland. It increases bone density, heart health, and energy! It heightens your taste, suppresses cravings, helps with blood pressure, bad breathe, and just about any other health problem I can think of. I could go all day, but i'd rather not bore you.

The probiotics make it that much better! They add enzymes to your stomach to help your digestive system and the rest of your body to work that much better!

Bottom line, coconut is awesome. Don't have some? Get some.

What is your favorite coconut recipe?
