If you have access to coconut meat then this recipe is much easier. Blend a few ingredients, ferment or refrigerate. Enjoy the next day. It's thick in consistency like vegan Greek Yogurt.

Use anyway you'd like to use traditional yogurt.
Omit sweetener for a unflavored version that is more sour. Coconut Cream refers to the cream found in a can of full fat coconut milk, refrigerate first, then scoop. Add 1/2 cup extra coconut water or coconut milk and omit the coconut cream for a thinner yogurt.
The recipe above uses the Banana Cream Oatmeal that my loving husband made for us, I added chocolate chips to mine, surrounding it with banana coins, added the coconut yogurt and strawberry compote on top. Highly recommend this breakfast! The recipe below uses this vegan omelette recipe with some added diced onion, cilantro, green bell pepper and a pinch of chipotle powder. Then its baked in a lined cake tin, then sliced like a pizza and topped with avocado, onion, cilantro and the coconut yogurt. Both delicious! Enjoy!
