Instant Strawberry “Yogurt” {dairy-free}

Please share:

I love me some good cheese, ice cream, and sour cream, but does that mean I should eat it? Not all the time. Do I eat it on occasion? Yup.

Instant Strawberry Yogurt

I crave some food from my past (read: pre-paleo days) that I no longer can eat. Yogurt is one of those things. I can (and do) make dairy-free ice cream at home, I can make ghee and still enjoy that buttery flavor, but yogurt is another story. I don’t want to spend a small fortune on probiotics and have to wait 2 days to make the darn stuff myself. I also don’t want to eat the dairy-free stuff from the store because they have all sorts of unnecessary ingredients like preservatives, gums, and carrageenan. Gross.

One day, after a particularly grueling workout (Filthy Fifty anybody?), I was craving a strawberry milkshake. So naturally, I attempted to make one on the fly when we got home. Turns out, my on-the-fly version of a milkshake was awfully close to yogurt instead. With a few tweaks, I had myself a pretty good instant whipped yogurt. Color me thrilled!

You could even change it up with different frozen fruits and make any flavor of yogurt you want. I keep meaning to do that, but strawberries are pretty much the standard in my freezer right now, but when I branch out, I’m making more yogurt flavors, for sure.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog? Its veey well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of contwnt so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

I feel like Maura. I am doing whole 30 and the yogurt really needed some sweetness. Without the honey all I was tasting was the coconut milk and the avocado :( but second batch around I added a banana, and not only did it boost the creaminess, but also added the subtle sweetness that we associate with yogurt.
