Dairy-free Berry ‘Yogurt’

yogurt2

When I went dairy-free, the two hardest things to give up were yogurt and cheese. I’m glad I broke my addiction to both these food items, because it taught me how heavily I was relying on them. I always had yogurt for breakfast, and learning to eat more savory foods in the morning has completely opened up my options for what I can eat. ¬†Today I decided to play around with my grass-fed gelatin and see what I could come up with. I’ve made gelatin gummies, chocolate pudding, and today I thought I’d go for a fruit-based ‘yogurt-like’ snack. I say yogurt-like because I didn’t incorporate probiotics which is what makes yogurt actual yogurt. I first wanted to make sure I could make the recipe work, and then the next time I want to incorporate gut-friendly bacteria.

Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 8 oz. full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 strawberries
  • 1 banana
  • ¼ cup blueberries
  • 1½ tsp. grass-fed gelatin
Instructions
  1. Pour 6 oz of coconut milk into a blender
  2. Add the strawberries and banana, blend until smooth
  3. Pour mixture into small saucepan and heat over medium-low heat
  4. In a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin on the remaining coconut milk to absorb the moisture for 5 minutes
  5. Whisk the gelatin mixture into the berry mixture on the stove and whisk gently while heating for about 5 minutes
  6. Add blueberries to blender, and puree with just enough of the coconut mixture to make a blue-ish paste
  7. Pour the blueberry mixture into the bottom of a 12 oz glass jar (or whatever conatiner you want to store it in)
  8. Place the mixture in the freezer and allow to cool for 5 mins
  9. Continue to gently stir the remaining strawberry mixture to avoid a skin from forming while the blueberry mixture cools
  10. Gently pour the strawberry mixture over the blueberry mixture, this is to create a "blueberry-bottomed" look to your yogurt (it's just for fun, you can mix it all together if you want)
  11. I pour the strawberry mix over a spoon which is held over the jar and let it cascade onto the blueberry mixture- this helps the two not mix together
  12. Place your jar in the fridge and allow to set, at least 30 mins
  13. Serve with your favorite garnish such as coconut flakes, nuts, or fresh berries!
