If you need a starter where do you get one from? I have an old easi-yo container so can I use that?

  • Thanks for posting this – id love to make my own coconut yogurt

  • Hi! I forgot to tell you that I made the coconut yogurt using the All-in-One Cooker. It’s fantastic! I used 200 ml coconut yogurt (I found it in Woolies) 600 ml coconut milk and 400 ml coconut cream. It turned out great!
    But the coconut yogurt I used as a starter is quite expensive, so I’m now using 200 ml cow natural yogurt instead of the coconut yogurt.

  • Yep, that will be fine. You can get starter yoghurt kits at the shopping centre. Coconut yoghurt sounds delicious, I would live to hear how you go

  • Yes for sure! I know that you can buy a starter in the supermarkets!

  • yes and if you so make this, it would be great to see you post a recipe! seems very interesting to me!

  • I presume you can use coconut milk to make it along with some plain yogurt start. You might have to experiment a bit and see what works.

  • The 5am brand makes coconut yoghurt. Not sure how to make your own.

  • Oh! I’d love to try to make coconut yogurt too, in the All-in-One Cooker. But I can’t find coconut yogurt to use as starter. They don’t have it in Coles, or at least in the one where I go.
    Where do you buy coconut yogurt?

  • these two comments have great idea. i hope your yoghurt making goes well!

  • I used to make coconut yoghurt all the time. I used store bought coconut as a starter and it worked fine :)

  • You can buy a starter in the supermarkets, there is Easyo and Hansens, I prefer the latter. I think you may be able to buy a starter with coconut, but if not you could add some coconut milk or cream to the yoghurt. Also you can use commercial yoghurt as a starter, about 2 tablespoons per litre of milk.
