I've toyed with the idea of making coconut yogurt for quite sometime, but I really didn't want to buy a yogurt machine. The last thing I need is another appliance in my small kitchen! But this recipe is made in the slow cooker. Yippee! I already have one of those!
I looked at two recipes for direction. The first is from A Year of CrockPotting, and the second is from Funky Food Allergies.
I used five cans of coconut milk and one container of store-bought coconut milk yogurt to make it. I also mixed in an envelope of plain gelatin to help with thickening. Next time, I will use two envelopes of gelatin.
If you can't find coconut milk yogurt to use as your starter, there are non-dairy yogurt starters available on the internet. One is from GI ProHealth.
This can be rather expensive to make, but it's a lot cheaper than buying the store-bought coconut milk yogurt at $2 for 6 ounces! Plus, it is so good!
