- 200 gram dessicated coconut
- 1.2 litre filtered water
- 1.2 litre coconut milk, Made in first step
- 4 tablespoon Arrowroot (Tapioca) starch
- 1 tablespoon Maple syrup
- 3-4 capsule Dairy Free probiotic, I used Inner Health Plus
- Put dessicated coconut and water into Thermomix bowl and cook for 8 minutes/100°C/speed 4.
- Blend for 30 sec/speed 8 (put a piece of paper towel between lid and MC to prevent any hot liquid spitting).
- Strain milk through a nut milk bag or muslin cloth or clean Chux cloth (2-4 layers is best). Use the spatula to squeeze the coconut milk through the bag/cloth into a bowl.
- You can get a thin coconut "flavoured" milk by by returning the squeezed coconut to the Thermomix bowl and adding another 1.2l of water and repeating the cooking/blending steps. This thin milk is great for freezing into icecubes and using in sorbets, or to use as a milk substitute when converting recipes to be dairy free (such as cakes).
Put coconut milk into Thermomix bowl with the Arrowroot starch.
Cook for 9 minutes/90°C/speed 3. Allow to cool to 37°C (takes 1.5-2 hours). You can check the temperature by returning the bowl to the Thermomix and seeing what temperature is illuminated.
Add maple syrup, mix for 4 sec/speed 3.
Pour 1/2 cup of the milk into a sterilised jug and gently stir in the contents of the probiotic capsules (open them up and tip the powder into the milk). Return to the Thermomix jug.
Cook for 3 min/37°C/speed 2.
Fill your Thermoserver with boiling water and put the lid on to sterilise and heat it up.
After 2-3 mins, empty the water from the Thermoserver and pour in the yoghurt. Put the lid on the Thermoserver and wrap in a few clean towels and place inside an esky indoors. This is to try to keep the temperature as close to 37 degrees for as long as possible.
Leave undisturbed for 12 hours.
Pour yoghurt into jars and refrigerate for 12-24 hours to allow to thicken. Serve.
Coconut Milk Yoghurt
Please note: I have had mixed success with this recipe (3 out of 5 batches have worked well, two have not set and remained runny).
Using filtered water and ensuring everything is properly sterilised seems to help.
Suggestions for using your yoghurt if it doesn't set:
Frozen yoghurt iceblocks (stir through fruit puree and freeze in icypole moulds)
Cakes and baking
Sorbet (freeze into iceblocks)
