Recipe Directions

  • 1. Place all ingredients into blender. Blend until it reaches a thin yogurt-style consistency. There should be absolutely no grittiness or chunks of anything left.
  • 2. Transfer into a bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • 3. You now have raw yogurt!

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Always store your raw yogurt in the fridge.

This recipe is definitely more of a yogurt than an icing or a frosting. It will not get very solid in the fridge. It will firm up somewhat during the 2 hour refrigeration, but it will never be stiff or solid. Its texture is, well, like yogurt!

Enjoy as a yogurt, as seen in this picture with morning fruit toppings. Add crumbled walnuts and dates for an even nicer breakfast experience, similar to granola and yogurt.

This recipe is so delicious! The texture is very smooth and light, and it tastes great with strawberries and blueberries. I cannot wait to try with other fruits, such as pineapple, oranges, blackberries, etc. Superb!

Yogurt, YEA!!!! Is the coconut essential to the recipe? I'm not very fond of coconut and would like to try without, but hate to waste my food.

I made this yesterday and I found it too rich, a bit too much...but I added fruit (and processed) and then it became so smooth and tasty. I added some seeds and it was delicious!

I already had soaked cashews and a Thai coconut in the fridge and I've been wanting to make a quick breakfast to take to work with me. This recipe is perfect!!! I used the Thai coconut meat instead of shredded and it was extra creamy. Yummmyyy.

do you use liquid or solid coconut oil?

Hi Franella,

As you probably know, your coconut oil can be liquid or solid depending on the temperature of your house-- and it can go from solid to liquid again in the summer vs winter!

When cooking with coconut oil, I usually make sure it's liquid first by taking a few spoonfuls and melting that amount a little, in the dehydrator, in the microwave, in a double-boiler, etc. That way it gets liquid and is easier to use. Then I measure out the amount and if I've melted too much I just drop that back in the jar.

Could vanilla powder be used? If so, how much??

Sure. Vanilla powder is a little stronger than extract. Try 1/4 to 1/2 tablespoon of powder.

Dear Jane. What do you think about adding one teaspoon of probiotics before fridging?

It appears that honey is being used as a sweetener. Can maple syrup be substituted instead? I realize that the recipe won't be 100% raw then but I'm OK with that.

Yes, that is totally fine :) Maybe increase the amount slightly since honey is a bit sweeter than maple syrup.

Just wondering if potassium could be added to nutrient list? If room is of consideration, maybe drop B12 as that is ALWAYS gonna be 0 unless fortified nutritional yeast is used. Conversely, potassium is plentiful in almost every recipe & with the importance of keeping the potassium/sodium balance - it is vital information.

Hello Rawtarian, I followed your instructions to the letter but the end result was hard to stir after storing it in the fridge. I'm guessing because of the coconut oil I used since it was chunky. Any suggestions? Thanks

Hello Santiago! Yes, this does happen, but if out of the fridge for a few minutes it’ll soften up.

Would this recipe culture effectively if a probiotic powder was added? Thus creating true yogurt?

If one is having yogurt for the good gut bacteria then this recipe would not accomplish that without adding probiotics - but then you Wud not go to any trouble if you could just add the processed powder or drops cause you could add that to anything raw. So my suggestion is we change the name cause this is a yummy drink/sauce/ dip! And we then have it because we like it and not for the accepted value of yogurt! Am I being pedantic? Probably ! What could we call it?

Hi Barbara!

I understand where you're coming from, but you've gotta admit that it has the texture of yogurt, and it would be hard to know what to expect from "raw sweet cashew sauce" - using the title raw yogurt at least gives the visitor a sense of what to expect and how to use it, since most people have a frame of reference for yogurt :)

I do hear where you're coming from though, I have gotten lots of similar comments lately about my recipes for cheese haha

Glad to have you here and loving this discussion :)

That looks fabulous and I will try it. Can you tell me if shredded coconut and desiccated coconut are the same or not ? Thank you.

Hi Celmah! dessicated coconut just means dried coconut... so they are not really the same per se from a grammatical point of view.

BUT generally as long as you are using dried/dessicated coconut that should be fine! It doesn't really have to be shredded
