Coconut, Macadamia and Berry Yoghurt

A trip to Leo’s always entices me to buy exquisite, delicious treats while my bank balance diminishes… on my most recent trip I left with Jaffa Cakes (for the kids), a lemon tart for my daughters birthday and a tub of Co-Yo for me…  Co-Yo is a dairy free yoghurt made from coconuts – they have a few different flavours including berry and mango.  I can’t remember which flavour I chose – but I ate all 400gms in 2 days – so delicious.  Oh… at a cost of $11.00… so an expensive yoghurt!!!!

Anyway – this is my version of Co-Yo Berry Yoghurt (with some Macadamia’s thrown in too) which you can make for a fraction of the cost.   I also have another coconut recipe (with no macadamias) on my blog – check that one out too!  Coconut Yoghurt.

Ingredients:… makes 500 grams…

For the yoghurt…

1 cup raw macadamias – soaked over night

flesh of 1 young Thai coconut

200ml coconut water

juice of 1 lemon

1 Tsp. vanilla powder

1 Tsp. probiotic powder (you can buy this at the Health Food Shop)

Method:

Combine all ingredients together in a high speed blender until very smooth.  Add more coconut water to adjust consistency until you have your yoghurt the way you like it.  I like it really thick and creamy so I didn’t add any further coconut water.

Place in fridge while you make the berry sauce.

For the berry sauce…

1 punnet blueberries

1/2 punnet strawberries

2 Tbsp. chia seeds (these will thicken the sauce and add lots of omega-3, protein and fibre goodness to your yoghurt)

1 1/2 Tbsp. maple syrup

Method:

In a small food processor, process together all sauce ingredients until smooth.

 

Putting it all together…

In a large glass jar alternate layers of yoghurt and berry sauce…

Refrigerate overnight and enjoy for 4-5 days.
