  1. Empty the coconut cream and Coconut Milk into a pot.
  2. Put the pot on a gentle heat and while stirring bring the mix up to a temperature of 82C to pasteurize it.
  3. Take the pot off the stove and stir it while testing the temperature until it gets to 40C.
  4. Add a small amount of live culture to inoculate the mix with the specific culture. We’re using a probiotic in coconut powder, but you could also use a teaspoon of plain commercial milk yogurt.
  5. Mix well and pour the liquid into the setting container.
  6. Add boiling water to the insulated container to around the bottom of where the setting jar will sit.
  7. Add the setting jar to the insulated container, seal it and leave to grow in a warm corner of the kitchen to 2 days. Replacing the hot water once it has gone cold (every 6 hours or so).
  8. It’s ready when you can see a separation between the white yogurt and the straw coloured “whey”.
  9. Put the mix in the fridge and it wills et a little harder as the coconut oil emulsified throughout the mix hardens.
