Fermented foods are a really important part of my high raw diet. Apart from reducing sugar cravings, and being RIDICULICIOUSLY TASTY!!!!, they have a ton of incredible health benefits. Most of my fermented food action comes from coconut probiotic dishes, mainly kefir drinks and yogurt. I’m getting more into kombucha and sauerkraut these days too, and am working on learning how to make them well enough where sharing my experiences with it is valuable. One day soon! In the mean time, I’ll share with you something that I do have a lot of experience with, and feel that has value to you. I’ve made quite a few coconut yogurt recipes, and this is one of my favorites. It’s also easily the prettiest 🙂
This is my kinda Coconut Yogurt Recipe
There are few types of food that are fundamental in my diet; for health, enjoyment, and, of course, overall lifestyle freeshness. They are :
- Fermented Foods
- Leafy Greens
- Fresh Herbs
- Juices & Smoothies
- Heavier Dehydrated Foods like this Raw Bread
- Decadent Desserts like this Swirl Cake
- Raw Chocolate
- Durian Delicacies like this Coconut Durian Fudge – you know I save the best for last 😉
Or second last rather, because there’s also…
They are my primary source of omega 3s. So when I made this coconut yogurt recipe and it turned out quite thin due to the watery pineapple and mulberries (its more like a coconut yogurt drink than a coconut yogurt), I got to thinking…Maybe I can make a chia pudding out of this! And I could! Yay
And I had some delicious jackfruit fig granola on hand. So I combined it all together into this epic combination of health and ridiculiciousness. That list of foods above is sort of like a daily checklist for me. If I can get small amounts of all of those in my belly in a day (when I have lots of different dishes freeshed up I will make a super combo platter for meals) I am a very happy boy. So being able to get my chia seeds and my fermented foods in together with this coconut yogurt recipe is downright phenomenal. This is a perfect dish to add into your diet to cover the two ultra important bases that are omega 3s and fermented foods.
Enjoy and Let the Freesh Seep in Real Deep!
Makes 2 big breakfast bowls worth of coconut yogurt chia pudding, that I like to garnish with fresh and dried fruits and the granola 🙂
And makes 3-4 cereal bowls worth of granola.
