makes 1 quart yogurt 4 cups coconut milk 1 tablespoon maple syrup yogurt starter or probiotic powder (this amount can vary) starch (like tapioca or arrowroot) (optional) 1) Heat the coconut milk and sweetener to barely a boil and remove from heat. In a glass bowl, allow the milk to cool to 115º F. While the coconut milk is cooling, if using, dissolve the thickener in another bowl using the necessary method. (A small amount of cool water for the gelatin, hot water for the agar agar and so on.) Once fully dissolved, add the thickener to the warm coconut milk. Stir well to combine. 2) Once the coconut milk reaches 115ºF add the yogurt starter (or probiotic powder), stir to combine. Pour the mixture into a very clean glass jar with a tight fitting lid (either washed with super hot, soapy water or run through the hottest cycle in your dishwasher). Cover and place in either your yogurt maker or an oven that is totally off with just the light on, the door shut and a towel wrapped around the jars of yogurt for extra insulation. I have a proofing setting on my oven that allows me to set it to 100ºF and that worked perfect. You can also keep the jars of yogurt in a cooler filled with hot water, on a low temperature heating pad, etc – basically you are looking to keep it at approximately 105ºF – 115ºF for the entire time it is culturing. 3) Allow the yogurt to culture for at least 8 hours but likely much longer, I personally find I like the flavor best when it has cultured for 16-24 hours. I like my yogurt tangy. This time may require some trial and error on your part to find what works best for you and your setup. 4) It will still be relatively thin at this point. Once ready, cover tightly and place in the fridge for at least 6 hours. This halts the fermentation, it will thicken as it cools, whether or not you added a thickener, obviously more so, however, if you added a thickener of some kind.

What type of coconut milk do you use in your recipe? carton milk or canned milk?
Does the coconut milk make it creamier?
I know that it is the most important part of making yogurt but the thought of 'culturing' still makes me queasy haha

Pikachu Buns
I was in a baking mood and decided to try to make these! They came out good for my first time 😁😁 I'll post my recipes below if you'd like to try and make them. If you'd like the recipe, message me 😘 My bun recipe: -200g milk (Lukewarm) -5g active dry yeast -30g sugar --240g bread flour -60g all purpose flour -30g butter (room temp) -Egg wash Step 1: put lukewarm milk, sugar and yeast in a bowl. Whisk and set aside for 5min Step 2: in a separate bowl, combine bread flour and all purpose flour. Then add milk mixture. Add a pinch of salt and knead dough Step 3: after dough can take ball form, knead in the room temp butter. Knead until butter is fully incorporated. After incorporated, put in a lightly greased bowl cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place for 30-40 min. Step 4: after 30-40 mins, take dough out. It should have doubled in size. Put flour on your finger and poke the middle of the dough. If it first bounce back, declare the air from dough and cut in 8 equal pieces. Form in to balls and set aside on a baking sheet for 10-15 mins. Make sure to cover with a lightly dampened cloth. Step 5: cut two areas on the doughball across from each other in a diagonal direction. Egg was the parts you cut in to. Sprinkle with sugar cover them again with a lightly dampened cloth and let them rest for 30 mins - an hour. They will double in size again Step 6: bake in an oven preheated to 400° for 10-12 mins and you're done! Chocolate pudding filling: -2 egg yolks -2 1/2 tbsp sugar -1 tbsp all purpose flour -1 1/2 tbsp corn starch -1 tbsp coco powder -200ml milk (hot) -2 tbsp butter -30g chocolate. I used four squares of semi sweet chocolate Step 1: whisk egg yolks and sugar together. In separate bowl, combine flour, corn starch and coco powder. Add mixture to yolk mixture and whisk together. Step 2: slowly add hot milk to the chocolate yolk mixture. When fully combined. Put yolk mixture through a strainer into a pot. Out put on burner and set to medium heat. Continuously whisk until mixture thickens to pudding consistency. Step 3: take off heat immediately and add butter and chocolate. Continue mixing until chocolate and butter mix in. Step 4: place plastic wrap directly on pudding and put in fridge to cool. After it cools, mix it again and add to piping bag.
Healthy Strawberry Chia Watermelon Smoothie
Cold and refreshing, sweet and tart, with a twist of lime for freshness – this vegan, gluten-free smoothie is a perfect (and healthy!) summer treat, complete with chia seeds, which I probably don't need to tell you are a nutritional GOLD MINE. Chia seeds are packed with fiber and antioxidants. They're a good source of protein, and gram for gram, have more Omega-3 fatty acids than salmon. It's no coincidence that "chia" means "strength" – ancient Mayans and Aztecs prized this tiny seed for its sustainable energy. Today, health nuts everywhere rejoice in the chia's ability to pack so much good stuff into so few calories! (Source) This delicious, refreshing smoothies could not be easier to make. Minimalist Baker has whipped up another incredible recipe for us; check out their site for a lot of other wonderful treats that take one bowl, less than 10 ingredients, or 30 minutes (or less!) to prepare. In the meantime, pour yourself a big glass of this smoothie, sprinkle on some chia seeds, and feel your cares float away on the summer breeze. Strawberry Chia Watermelon Smoothie Recipe by Minimalist Baker Serves 2 Ingredients 1 1/2 cups (240 g) fresh watermelon, cubed (black seeds removed) 1 cup (120 g) frozen strawberries 1/2 ripe banana (50 g), previously peeled, chopped and frozen 1/2 - 3/4 cup (120-180 ml) unsweetened plain almond milk 1 lime, juiced (~30 ml) 1 Tbsp chia or hemp seeds (optional) Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth, adding more almond milk to thin, or more frozen strawberries or ice to thicken. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more lime for acidity, banana for sweetness, or watermelon for a more intense watermelon flavor. Top with additional chia seeds to mock watermelon seeds! Best when fresh, though leftovers keep covered in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. I can't wait to give this a try – let me know how yours come out! :)

Meatless Monday Recipe: Quick & Easy Pad Thai Spring Rolls
Making pad thai at home is deceptively easy, but making spring rolls is ridiculously fun! Combine both, and you have the pad thai tofu spring rolls below - a quick and creative meal you'll definitely find yourself making more than once. You should be able to find spring roll paper, tamarind, and chili garlic sauce in the ethnic food aisle of your local supermarket and most Asian grocers. 10-Ingredient Pad Thai Spring Rolls (Adapted From Minimalist Baker) MAKES 8 ROLLS INGREDIENTS: For The Spring Rolls - 14 ounces extra firm tofu 8 ounces white or brown rice noodles 8 - 10 white or brown rice spring roll papers 2 cups thinly sliced carrots 1 large handful fresh cilantro For The Sauce - 3 tablespoons tamarind concentrate 3 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce + more for tofu 3 - 4 tablespoons coconut sugar, agave, or maple syrup 1/2 lime, juiced 1 - 2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce + more for tofu For Serving (Optional) - Peanut sauce (Check out my Vegan DIY: Thai Peanut Sauce recipe card.) Sriracha Directions: 1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Wrap tofu in a clean towel. Set something heavy on top - such as a cast iron pan - to press out liquid for 15 minutes. Then cut into 1/2-inch wide rectangular strips. 2) Arrange tofu on the baking sheet, giving each piece some space so it can firm up. Bake for 28 - 30 minutes to dry and firm the tofu. For softer tofu, bake for 20 minutes. For firmer, bake for 30 - 35 minutes. Set aside. In the meantime, prep carrots, cilantro, and cook rice noodles according to package instructions, then drain and set aside. 3) To make the sauce, add tamarind, tamari, coconut sugar, lime and chili garlic sauce to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Once it begins bubbling, lower heat to low and cook for 3 - 4 minutes, stirring frequently.Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more tamari or soy sauce for saltiness, chili garlic for heat, coconut sugar, agave, or maple syrup for sweetness, or lime for acidity. Remove from heat and set aside. 4) Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add baked tofu and 1 teaspoon each chili garlic sauce and tamari or soy sauce, plus 1 tablespoon of the Pad Thai sauce. Sauté, stirring frequently, for 1 - 2 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. 5) Add cooked noodles to the still-hot pan over medium heat and add remaining Pad Thai sauce. Use tongs to disperse sauce and toss noodles. Cook for 1 - 2 minutes, then remove from heat and set aside. 6) Assemble a station for preparing the spring rolls with a shallow bowl or plate (for dunking the rice paper), bring a kettle or pot of water to a boil (to cook the rice paper with), and a clean work surface (such as a large cutting board). Gather all ingredients and add hot water to the shallow bowl or pan. Let it cool for 1-2 minutes, then add 1 rice paper at a time and cook/soften for 45 seconds to 1 minute. Lift and let excess water drip off, then transfer to your clean work surface. 7) Top with pad thai noodles, tofu, carrots and cilantro, then roll over once, tuck in sides, and continue rolling all the way up. Place seam-side down on a serving plate or baking sheet and cover with a damp, room temperature towel to keep fresh. Continue until all spring rolls are prepared - about 8. 8) Serve as is with a bit more chili garlic sauce or sriracha! Another great addition is the aforementioned peanut sauce posted above. Best when fresh, though leftovers keep covered in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
Green Tea Smoothies – Delicious, Healthy, and Help You Lose Weight
Celebrate summer with these yummy green tea smoothies! They're packed with seasonal fruit and all the nutrients your body needs, helping you eat smart and achieve your health goals. Researchers at Purdue University found that you stay fuller longer when you drink thick beverages like smoothies; replacing meals with smoothies ups your chance of losing weight and keeping it off for more than a year. Even if weight loss isn't one of your goals, drinking smoothies can help you sneak in more raw fruits and veggies into your diet. My dad, who's a total health nut, will throw everything from kale to tomatoes to raw beets into his VitaMix – but shockingly, you'd never know it! Using a little peanut butter, cinnamon, sweetened yogurt, or ripe strawberries can really mask the taste of less traditional ingredients. Why Green Tea? Green tea contains catechin polyphenols, which Swiss researchers have found significantly increase your body's metabolism of fat – meaning you burn more, faster. In addition, green tea contains less caffeine than coffee, which, coupled with the nutrients provided by other ingredients, will give you long lasting, non-jittery energy, unlike the buzz-crash-repeat vicious cycle of coffee. Give one (or all!) of these green tea smoothies a try – you won't be disappointed! Green Tea Goddess Smoothie 3 cups frozen green grapes 2 cups baby spinach, packed 1 1/2 cups strong brewed green tea, cooled 1 medium ripe avocado 2 teaspoons honey (or agave syrup) Avocados are packed with oleic acid, a healthy fat that's great for your heart. Plus, they've got more potassium than bananas, making them excellent supporters of healthy blood pressure levels. Source: Eating Well Blueberry Green Tea Smoothie 3/4 cups green tea 2 cups frozen blueberries 12 oz. nonfat vanilla yogurt 20 whole almonds, unsalted and dry-roasted 2 tbsp. ground flax seeds Almonds are high in magnesium, iron, calcium, and protein, as well as healthy fats that may help you lose weight, and certainly support a healthy heart and low cholesterol! Source: Food Antioxidant-Rich Berry Matcha Smoothie 1/4 cup frozen blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries (or a mix of all three!) 1/2 cup yogurt 1/2 cup ice 1 tsp. matcha powder Add some mango, kiwi, ginger, or a few fresh mint leaves to make this even yummier! Source: MatchaSource Mango Green Tea Smoothie 1/2 cup green tea 1/2 cup fat-free Greek yogurt 1 cup mango chunks, fresh or frozen 3-5 ice cubes Mango is one of my favorite fruits, and protein-packed Greek yogurt will keep you full and focused for hours! Source: Joy Bauer Cinnamon Honey Green Tea Smoothie 1/2 cup green tea, chilled 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk 1 tsp. cinnamon 1 tbsp. honey 1/2 banana Like green tea, cinnamon has great metabolism-boosting properties. At only 139 calories, this low-cal concoction is better as a snack than a meal replacement. Source: Popsugar A Few Tips: Use frozen fruit. It's cheaper, easier to store, won't go bad, AND might even have more antioxidants than the fresh fruit you find in the supermarket, since it's picked and frozen at peak ripeness. To brew strong green tea, use two tea bags – but don't oversteep. Oversteeping can give your tea a bitter flavor that other ingredients might not succeed in masking.
