Yogurt topped with nuts, granola, sliced fruit, and a bit of honey was my go-to breakfast as I was becoming an adult. Forget the sugary cereals of my youth and screw the boring “adult” cereals–I wanted to start my days with something healthy and sugary! I did this for several years before starting the autoimmune protocol. And I didn’t really miss it because I was so excited about trying new things, but every now and then I come across a delectable-looking recipe that calls for yogurt. Coconut milk is often a good sub in a pinch, but after four years on the AIP, I figured it was past time I try my hand at Coconut Yogurt. Now those of you that are still in the thick of your love affair with the probiotic treat can have a dairy-free, additive-free alternative!
You should be able to use any multi-strain probiotic for this recipe (I used Kirkman Pro-bio Gold). You’ll need sterilized mason jars to accommodate about two quarts of yogurt. It may separate in the fridge because coconut milk tends to do that, so just give it a good stir before use. Enjoy!
Don’t Feel Like Cooking?
That’s okay! Everyone needs a break sometimes, especially during busy times like the holidays or when you’re sick or stressed out. When I find myself unwilling or unable to prepare healthy meals myself, I turn to Paleo on the Go. Yes, they have autoimmune protocol-friendly options! With tons of nutritious, delicious, pre-packaged meals, Paleo on the Go‘s ready-to-go, frozen courses are perfect for those days you just don’t want to be in the kitchen. They even offer an appreciable selection of AIP-friendly treats, including toaster pastries!
