You were looking for the post on dietary habits and sustainability.
Instead, this is a post on me giving up on coconut milk yogurt.
It wasn’t hard to make. But in the several batches I made, I never felt like it was, well, cultured enough.
Normally the bacteria eat the sugar in cow’s milk. Coconut milk is low in sugar, so I added maple syrup to give the little guys sugar to eat. But adding extra sugar – even “natural” start like maple syrup – feels wrong to me.
Then the results were never as yogurt-y as it seemed they should be. Even after 24 hours of incubating.
And I never found a store bought coconut milk yogurt that tasted good either, so….back to cow’s milk yogurt (and sinus congestion) for me.
