|It couldn’t be simpler to make this creamy vegan yogurt out of cashews and probiotic powder.|
|Time||10 minutes hands on, plus time to soak and ferment|
|Directions||Place cashews in bowl, cover with water, and let soak for 2-4 hours. Drain.*
Blend cashews, 1½ c water, and probiotic powder for several minutes, until perfectly smooth. Add a little more water if needed.
Transfer into glass jar, cover with cheesecloth,** and let ferment in a warm place (65-85 degrees) for 8-12 hours. It will get more sour the longer it ferments.***
Stir the yogurt to get rid of the bubbles, then store tightly sealed in the refrigerator, for up to a week.
|Notes||Cashew yogurt makes a wonderfully rich yogurt cheese.
*The recipe says to discard the soaking water, but I like to use it to keep those extra vitamins.
**If you have an ant problem, I recommend using a larger jar and sealing it rather than just covering it with cheesecloth.
***I’ve found that the flavor and texture are best and just like dairy yogurt after 12 hours of fermentation followed by one day in the fridge.
