What’s creamy, silky clean, protein-packed, and certifiably despatched from snack heaven?
THIS VEGAN YOGURT, you guys. Remember it from What I Ate Wednesday? We bought so many feedback and questions on this one!
Here are my solutions to the whole lot:
- Basically 5 minutes.
- Basically three components (cashews, frozen fruit, and tofu don’t hate me)
- Naturally sweetened with honey and fruit.
Okay, earlier than somebody will get mad, I get that this isn’t YOGURT yogurt. Totally perceive. And completely respect individuals who make actual yogurt – like the sort the place you change into a full-blown scientist rising cultures and looking out by way of microscopes to be able to get your self a batch of creamy yogurt goodness. Shout out to you folks. You are who I wish to be once I develop up (I’m 32, I’ve bought time).
But at the moment second, I’m going to be brutally trustworthy with you.
I don’t actually care to get all sciencey with actual selfmade yogurt.
My yogurt-making MO is extra like… eh, let’s mix some stuff up and make it tremendous nutritious and creamy and style like a decadent dessert and possibly throw in a probiotic capsule, possibly? That’s “yogurt” sufficient for me.
And despite the fact that I’m not vegan, I do discover that generally it’s good to just go simple on the dairy for a bit.
Which is handy as a result of you recognize what? this yogurt is HERE FOR IT. It sees your longing for a borderline ice-creamy snack and it raises you one which kicks dairy to the curb AND ALSO tastes like desires coming true.
This may have actually been a 15-Minute Meal Prep recipe, now that I consider it. I purchased banana bread muffins for breakfast / snack / dessert on repeat.
I bought the thought for this recipe from The Perfect Blend cookbook (which is a fantastic and SUPER wholesome ebook, BTW – I’m not practically this wholesome however I exploit this cookbook on a regular basis)! Her recipe is a bit totally different however the idea of a blended vegan yogurt is analogous!
This Creamy Dreamy Vegan “Yogurt” is the BEST! Made in 5 minutes with three components and naturally sweetened.
The Main Things
- 2 cups frozen peaches
- 1/2 cup cashews
- 12 ounces tofu (see notes)
- 1/4 cup liquid sweetener – agave, maple syrup, or honey (kind of to style)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice (kind of to style)
- 1 probiotic capsule (non-compulsory! see notes)
- Blend the whole lot collectively on a excessive pace setting till very, very, verrry clean.
- Store in jars, within the fridge, for as much as 5 days!
Tofu: I made batches with each silken and agency tofu and I preferred them each! Not surprisingly, the agency tofu yielded a extra agency yogurt (like the primary photograph) and the silken tofu was smoother / not as agency (like the previous couple of pictures).
Blending: If you’re having hassle mixing it up, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of non dairy milk. For best mixing, thaw your peaches first!
Probiotics: For a probiotic increase, you’ll be able to empty a probiotic capsule proper into the blender and blend it up. I truly most well-liked the batches I made with out the probiotics. I felt like the feel bought a bit chalky with the probiotic capsule. Maybe it was my particular model of capsules, I’m undecided. But the cookbook that originally impressed this recipe (The Perfect Blend) features a probiotic capsule within the yogurt, and a few of you might prefer to get these further probiotics in!
