1 Cup of Raw, Unheated Almonds (soaked for 24 hours in pure water)
1 1/2 Cups of Fresh Coconut meat (scraped from the inside of young Thai Coconuts)
Water from 1 Young Thai Coconut
1/2 Tbsp Probiotic Powder (or the contents of 3 probiotic capsules)
First, soak your raw almonds in water for 24 hours. Soaking the nuts is crucial as this will activate the dormant enzymes and release the nutrients.
Add soaked almonds, young coconut meat, coconut water from 1 coconut, and probiotics to blender and blend until smooth in a high-speed blender (I use a Vita-Mix).
Next, using a fine-mesh strainer to strain the liquid into a glass bowl. I hold my strainer in one hand and use a spatula in the other to stir and sift the mixture through. This will remove any excess fibers and almond skins and will help you achieve a nice creamy texture.
Cover your glass bowl with a paper towel or clean dish towel and let sit for at least 3-4 hours. This will allow the probiotics to start to proliferate and break down the yogurt. The longer you let it sit, the more tangy and sour it will be.
