Coconuts are a powerhouse of good quality fats and super gentle on digestion so what better way to use them than to turn them into creamy and delicious probiotic yoghurt. Make sure you use good quality organic coconut milk and cream as this will make all the difference to the end result.

Makes 3 cups

Prep time: 5 minutes


1 ½ cups (375ml) full fat coconut cream

1 ½ cups (375ml) full fat coconut milk

1 tablespoon maple syrup

2 dairy-free probiotic capsules


In a blender, blend the coconut cream, milk and maple syrup together. Pour into a bowl, sprinkle the contents of the capsules into the mixture and whisk to combine.

Divide the mixture between sterilised jars, resting the lids on top to allow air to continue to circulate. Leave in a warm room (between 20-25 degrees) or place in the oven with only the pilot light on for 24 hours; stir the mixture after about 12 hours.

Once the yoghurt is fermented, seal and refrigerate. The yoghurt will thicken a little more once it is chilled. If you would like a thicker, Greek-style yogurt, substitute the coconut milk for more coconut cream and use only the thickened cream part, discarding the liquid.

    Hi Natural Harry!
    You’re the best!

    Can’t wait to give this a go!
    I was thinking of using honey instead of maple syrup, as we have some happy bee hives at our place.

    Just wondering if you can recommend a good dairy free probiotic capsule brand?

    Many many thanks from

      Legend! Thank you for the wonderful feedback. Innerhealth plus probiotic (dairy free version) is good x

    Heyyy Harry,

    Absolutely loving all your recipes. Your whole foods cookbook has been a staple.
    I’ve tried to make coconut yogurt on numerous occasions but haven’t been able to find a coconut milk/cream that works.
    Which brand to you use here in Oz?

    Best wishes,

      Hi Nadine,

      I buy and organic one. I think Spiral is the brand 🙂

  3. Hi Harry,
    I successfully made your coconut yogurt just wondering how long we have to eat it?

    1. Harry says:

      Hi Sarah!

      As long as you used steralized equipment and you refrigerate it it should be best eaten within 10 days. Enjoy! x

    Hi Harry,

    I hope you’re well. Just got your latest book and I’m looking forward to trying some recipes over my two weeks annual leave. I have an Easi- yo yoghurt maker and was wondering if I could use it to make this recipe?

    Thanks so much!

      Hi Kate!

      Wonderful, I hope you love the book!
      I have never used an ‘easy-yo yoghurt maker’ so not sure about that one sorry!
      Can the makers of it tell you? Or their website?
