I am always looking for new ways to make dairy alternative yoghurt.  I probably consume my own body weight in yoghurt on a weekly basis, however I am yet to find a good cashew milk based version.  I have to say this recipe is crazy simple to make and, not only that, but by adjusting the amount of water you can make a thick greek style yoghurt.

I have served mine with a simple pineapple, papaya and mango compote, some fresh mint and a little chilli for a spicy kick.

Easy Homemade Cashew Yoghurt – makes 3 – 4 portions 

200 g raw cashew, soaked overnight, drained and rinsed

1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/2 tsp vanilla powder or, even better, the seeds from a vanilla pod

2 dl/ 200 ml – 3 dl/ 300 ml water

1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)

3 vegan friendly probiotic capsules

Add the soaked cashews, lemon juice, vanilla and water to a blend.  200ml of water will give you a thick greek style yoghurt, add extra water if you are looking for a thinner consistency.  If you prefer a slightly sweeter yoghurt add a little maple syrup.  However you can always taste you finished yoghurt and add a little sweetener afterwards.  Blend the cashew mixture until completely smooth.  Open the probiotic capsules and sprinkle over your cashew mix.  Use a wooden spoon to carefully mix in the probiotic powder.

Pour into a yoghurt maker and leave for 8 – 12 hours depending on how tangy you like your yoghurt.  Alternatively, pour into a jar and cover with a clean breathable cloth.  Leave in a warm dark place for 24 hours.

Once ready refridgerate.  It should last 3 – 4 days.

    1. You can actually use baobab powder, it gives the yoghurt a tangy taste and will also thicken the cashew ‘milk’. You can basically add it and eat it straight away as there is no yoghurt process as there is no probiotic. It won’t be exactly the same as yoghurt but it is a good substitute
