Raw Almond Yogurt
I'm so thrilled to see my sons taking an interest in raw foods! Today, they decided to try their hands at making yogurt. Josiah made the one pictured above. Many thanks to grandma Linda for her recipe.
5 cups of almonds
12 tsp of agar flakes
2 cups of water
Add 12 tsp of agar flakes to 2 cups of water. Simmer for about 7 min. Pour into bowl and let congeal. The amount of ingredients will be enough for the 5 cups of almonds. If you are just doing 2 1/2 cups of almonds....do 1/2 of this amount. 5 cups soaked peeled almonds divided into (2) 2 1/2 cups.
Put 2 1/2 cups almonds into blender, then put through nut bag and squeeze.
3 1/2 cups of water
1 heaping T. coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla
4 T. agava
Blend about 1 minute, then add 1 cup of the congealed agar mixture and blend about 1 min.
Pour into jar (1 cup size) and refrigerate overnight.
You can do the same with the other 2 1/2 cups of almonds or just make almond milke with them with the above add items, but add 1 cup extra water making a total of 4 1/2 water.
We decided to add some of our favorite fruits to the recipe. Strawberries, blueberries, and bananas were blended into the yogurt mixture. Upon serving, we added raw almond whip cream topped with cashews.
