Plant-Based Cashew Yogurt

This yogurt recipe is sure to please any milk-lover!

Do you have yogurt lovers? This cashew yogurt recipe tastes like regular yogurt and is 100% vegan! It’s so good it will please even dairy lovers, and is easy to make. The hardest part of this recipe is waiting 12 hours for the fermentation to transform the cashew mixture into tasty yogurty goodness.

cashew yogurt raw cashews in bowl

To make this dairy-free yogurt you just need 4 ingredients: raw cashews, vegan probiotics (or a spoonful of vegan yogurt with live cultures), salt, and water. That’s it. Some supermarkets, such as Sprouts, sell vegan probiotics, as well as milk-free yogurt. If you don’t have such a supermarket you can order the probiotics online like the one I used in the video.

Start the recipe by washing the cashew nuts then placing them into a blender. Add an equal amount of filtered water, then blend on high until the mixture is silky smooth. Pour into a bowl and add the probiotics and salt. Stir well to mix in the cultures. Let the mixture sit in a warmer part of the kitchen for 10-12 hours until the fermentation has time to get the job done.

Once fermentation is finished the cashew mixture will be slightly sour, like dairy yogurt. This means it’s ready. Add your favorite toppings, such as granola, berries, fruits, or oats, and serve. You can also chill before serving. This recipe is can also be used in place of other milk-based products, such as sour cream, and cream for cakes. I hope you enjoy this tasty plant-based yogurt!
