If you’ve tried coconut yogurt from the supermarket only to be left disappointed at best, or disgusted at worst, try this homemade version before you swear to never partake again. You’ll see why some people swear by it. Your kids will even like it, and shhh, they don’t even have to know it’s made from coconut and super healthy. This recipe is full of natural electrolytes and probiotics {good bacteria for a healthy gut}!


  • 4 young thai coconuts
  • 1 cup of young thai coconut water
  • 1/2 TSP Kefir starter OR 2 capsules of high quality probiotics (RFR note, you can also use Sunbiotics Vanilla Probiotics)
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 vanilla bean, scraped
  • 1 Tbls maple syrup or honey


  1. In a Vitamix, add all ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy, like your favorite yogurt.
  2. Let sit at room temperature for about 15 hours. This will activate kefir starter and/or probiotics capsules. Refrigerate. Yogurt will last 3 days. Top with your favorite granola or fruit.


Note: persimmons are wonderful with this yogurt. So are berries and kumquats when in season. Also, try almond extract, cacao, or even some extra lemon. For a heartier breakfast add granola or you can top it with sweeter fruits like, peaches, bananas, and so on. Enjoy!
