DIY Coconut Yogurt 4 Ways
With more and more people looking to avoid dairy, alternative products like coconut yogurt are popping up on store shelves. I have seen brands that are cleaner than others but usually these products contain a long list of questionable ingredients including added sugar. But what if I told you that you can make your own at home with only 2 ingredients and for a fraction of the cost? Would you give it a try?
