As long as we’re getting inspired about berries, here’s a simple recipe to make your own dairy-free yogurt.
It’s delicious served over a fresh fruit salad (especially with summer fruit), or you might choose to blend your favorite fruit right in, and make your own peach, strawberry or blueberry yogurt…
You want to be sure to use soft or silken tofu, as firm tofu will not create the same creamy consistency. Silken tofu is delightfully smooth, and is perfect for creamy dips, dressings, sauces, puddings and cream pies – look out for that recipe soon! It also comes in different degrees of firmness, which is nice if you prefer your yogurt with a little extra body.
If you’re keen on the probiotics (friendly bacteria) usually found in commercial yogurts, you can also add a vegan acidophilus powder to the mix… VegLife has a product called ‘FOS-idophilus’ that they describe as “a 100% vegan probiotic formula that provides over 5 billion friendly bacteria plus the natural prebiotic FOS”.
