Boost your inner ecosystem with the beneficial bacteria in this delicious KEFIR yoghurt to keep your immune system strong.
A sterilised glass bowl or large jar
a square of muslin (cheesecloth)
1 elastic band
a wooden spoon.
Avoid using metal, and store in a glass jar
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. Strain the coconut water into a bowl. Set aside.
2 Scrape out the coconut flesh. Try not to include any husk. Place in a blender. Add the coconut water. Blend until creamy- it should have
the consistency of yoghurt.
3 Pour the mixture into a glass bowl. Then add the contents of the probiotic capsules or probiotic powder.
4 Cover the bowl with muslin (cheesecloth), securing it with the elastic band. Put in a cool, dry, dark place for 1–2 days. When ready, it should taste fairly sharp without a hint of sweetness.
5 Add stevia to taste. Refrigerate and enjoy over the next 7 days. Serve with fresh berries, if using.
