Instant Pot Vegan Coconut Milk Yogurt
2 cans full-fat Coconut milk
1 tablespoon Agar Agar flakes (not powder)
1 tbsp Maple syrup
1 teaspoon Probiotic powder (acts as a yogurt starter)
(a candy thermometer makes this whole process a lot easier!)
Making yogurt can seem intimidating, but it’s actually simple with the Instant Pot! You have to make sure all your equipment is sterilized and that the mixture is kept at the correct temperature.
The first step is to combine the coconut milk and agar agar flakes (which acts as a thickener) in the Instant Pot bowl. Then, press the “Saute” button and cook until it reaches a rolling boil. Turn off the pot, and wait for the mixture to decrease in temperature until it has reached 115 degrees Fahrenheit. Stir in the probiotic powder and press the Yogurt button. Ferment the yogurt for at least 12 hours and up to 24 hours. How long you ferment depends on how tart you like your yogurt. I don’t like tart yogurt, so I ferment for 12 hours.
Once the yogurt is finished fermenting, pour it into a tightly sealed jar and place it in the fridge. The yogurt will thicken as it chills.
Serve with fresh berries, granola or any of your other favorite toppings.
The yogurt can be stored in the fridge, in a tightly sealed container, for up to a week.
