Oh, you're in for a treat! Making vegan yogurt is like a science experiment that ends with a delicious snack. Here’s a simple recipe to get you started:

Vegan yogurt with fruts and granola


  • 4 cups of non-dairy milk (soy, almond, coconut, or cashew milk work great)

  • 1-2 tablespoons of a thickener (optional, but helps with texture; try agar agar, cornstarch, or tapioca starch)

  • 1-2 tablespoons of sweetener (optional, but a little maple syrup or agave can be nice)

  • 1-2 tablespoons of vegan yogurt starter or probiotic capsules (make sure they’re vegan!)


  1. Heat the Milk: Pour your non-dairy milk into a saucepan and heat it over medium heat until it reaches about 180°F (82°C). This helps to kill any unwanted bacteria. If you're using a thickener, mix it with a little bit of cold milk first to dissolve, then add it to the saucepan.

  2. Cool It Down: Let the milk cool down to about 110°F (43°C). This is the perfect temperature for the probiotics to do their magic.

  3. Add the Starter: Stir in your vegan yogurt starter or the contents of the probiotic capsules. Make sure it’s well mixed.

  4. Incubate: Pour the mixture into clean jars or a yogurt maker. If you don’t have a yogurt maker, you can use an oven with the light on, a dehydrator, or even a warm spot in your house. The key is to keep it at a steady warm temperature (around 110°F or 43°C) for 8-12 hours. The longer you let it sit, the tangier it will get.

  5. Chill: Once it’s done incubating, pop it in the fridge for a few hours to set. This will also help it thicken up a bit more.

  6. Enjoy: Add your favorite fruits, granola, or a drizzle of maple syrup, and dig in!

Pro Tips:

  • If you like your yogurt thicker, you can strain it through a cheesecloth after it’s done incubating.

  • Experiment with different non-dairy milks to find your favorite flavor and texture combo.

  • Remember, patience is key! Good things come to those who wait... and yogurt is definitely a good thing.

So, there you have it! A delicious, creamy, and cruelty-free yogurt that’s perfect for breakfast, snacks, or even dessert. Enjoy, and welcome to the wonderful world of homemade vegan goodies! 🌱🥄
