Looking for an easy coconut yogurt recipe? Learn how easy it is to make homemade coconut yogurt at home with just a few ingredients!



  1. Dissolve gelatin with 1/4 cup of milk and set aside.
  2. Heat the remaining coconut milk up over low heat until it’s hot but not boiling.
  3. Remove the heated coconut milk off the stove and mix the gelatin mixture and sugar into the hot coconut milk.
  4. Let it cool until it’s about 90 degrees.
  5. Pour the coconut milk into a clean 2 quart size jar. I recommend using sterilized glass jars.
  6. Now it’s time to add the starter culture! Pour the starter culture into the coconut milk and mix well.
  7. If you’re using a probiotic capsule then this is the step to add it. You must open the capsule and pour the probiotic into the warm coconut milk. Stir well.
  8. Cover with a lid and keep the coconut milk at 100-115 degrees for 18-24 hours. I made coconut milk yogurt in both my dehydrator and in oven. If you use your oven, all you have to do is turn the light on and wrap the jar with a towel to hold the heat in. You can also use a yogurt maker too.
  9. When the coconut milk is finished it will taste sour and the yogurt will be a little thick (it’ll thicken more once you refrigerate it).
  10. Store the yogurt in the refrigerator. It’ll be good for up to 2 weeks!
  11. If you want thicker yogurt you can strain it in a cheesecloth or Nut Milk Bag.

Keep 1/4 cup of your coconut milk yogurt to use to make your next batch of yogurt. The process is the same but you won’t need to use a probiotic or starter culture. Instead, add 1/4 cup of coconut milk yogurt from the previous batch to the warm coconut milk, gelatin, sugar mixture
