    This is yogurt?

    Based on the spacing of the ingredients, it's hard to tell if that's all for one serving, or three different suggestions for using different berries. Please clarify!

    It looks like the same recipe (3X) using a different fruit. (?)

    Should that be;
    1/2 cup (100mls) Coconut Cream
    20g of either Strawberries, Blueberries or Raspberries
    1 Pinch of Vanilla powder or extract

    I like to mash up a ripe avocado and mix in some whole fat greek yogurt. I then usually add some nuts ( I usually use walnuts) and some type of berries. Coconut flakes are added if available. This is a good way to get the nutritional benefits of avocadoes for someone who make not necessarily like the taste.

    I make actual coconut yoghurt by mixing a couple of tins of coconut milk with live yoghurt culture. I leave it overnight in my Easiyo yoghurt maker. It's soooo good!!!
    It's not thick like normal yogurt but tastes absolutely amazing! Only slightly coconuty with a fresh yoghurt tang. I just drink it with a little stevia.
    I'd love to know if the live cultures reduce the sugars in the coconut milk as the live bacteria "eat" it. Any one know?

    They do reduce the sugar content!

    I am not seeing how this is yogurt. Where are the pro-biotics or culture?

    It's so runny! Am I doing something wrong?
  12. Kerri
    Not yogurt.
  13. Anne
    Kalista are you using coconut milk and not coconut cream?
  14. Ariel Keeley
    I made sure I used coconut cream. It was super runny. I had to drink it. It was tasty though.

    Also this is far from low carb. 88g of carbs in just the coconut cream

    actually the blueberry recipe calls for 50g of blueberries

    I miss my yogurt in the morning and have found Dannon light & fit makes a carb control yogurt with only 3 grams of carbs. Meets my craving.
  20. Suzanne
    The information I can find says that there's 7gm of carbs in 100ml of coconut cream. Where did the 88gm of carbs in cocnut cream come from?
    The link you ve added states that there 16gm in 240ml of coconut cream. Am I reading the page wrongly?

    Hi Suzanne!

    You are correct:)

    So are you suppose to mix the stick of butter with the coconut cream? Confused or use the cream as is? Also can coconut cream be frozen? Want to make a dairy free ice cream for my son who is on a medical monitored keto diet. Thanks!

    I like your suggestion! I miss the cold crunch of breakfast cereal. This sounds like it would hit the spot or at least be a great alternative finally! I'm not a fan of the avacado but I WANT to be. Also, I'm so sick of eggs! I've never been big on their texture. Thank you for sharing your recipe!!!

    Not buying the right kind of coconut cream. I did that and was like whoops. Got the right kind and now I have it in the freezer to see how it'll taste!!! :)
  25. Jayne
    The recipe says stick blender not stick of butter.

    What I don't understand is the 20g strawberry - that isn't a whole strawberry! Mine are 35g or about.

    My coconut cream (Marks & Spencer) is 3g carbs per 100ml.

    Should I be using sugar free coconut cream?

    I made this tonight with coconut milk. It was good, but we decided to see if it would be better chilled. DEFINITELY better chilled. I added the coconut oil for fat, but I don't think I will add a tbsp next time.
  28. Dianne Vanderlist
    The only coconut cream is a hard block is this what you use? What does it look like?
  29. Susan
    Jayne, I tried to find coconut cream on M&S website, but there was nothing. Where should I be looking?
    Thank you for your help!

    I did this but it was so sweet. Still, it was very good but very sweet. Next time I'll add less coconut cream and maybe heavy cream.
