Homemade Almond Milk Yogurt

Homemade Almond Milk Yogurt

Is your dairy-free family obsessed with yogurt like mine? This homemade almond milk yogurt recipe is a delicious, affordable option if you and your family love yogurt but are vegan or can’t tolerate dairy products.

Years ago, I made a gallon of homemade cow’s yogurt at a shot. My kids would gobble it up in a few days. It was simple to make and the control over each ingredient made me happy.

Fast forward a few years. We discovered milk caused tummy aches, diarrhea, and heartburn in my kids. It was heartbreaking. My kids loved milk and yogurt! But the cost of non-dairy yogurt was a hard pill to swallow. The way my kids eat yogurt, they kick a pint size yogurt container each by 10am.

I experimented with making my own almond milk yogurt. It was a rough road: Lots of failed yogurt batches and disappointed little kids when a batch didn’t pan out. We made the best of it.

Here are 3 lessons I had to learn the hard way. Don’t make the same mistakes. Let’s save you time, money and frustration.

1. You Must Use Homemade Almond Milk

Homemade Honey Vanilla Marshmallows (Corn Syrup & Egg Free)

Homemade Honey Vanilla Marshmallows (Corn Syrup & Egg Free)

What goes better with a steaming cup of hot cocoa or a cozy fire than marshmallows, right?

Unfortunately for the person with food sensitivities, the average store-bought marshmallow can be problematic. I mean, aside from the nasty GMO corn or wheat syrup, why exactly does a white marshmallow need FD&C Blue No. 5, anyway?

These whole food, homemade marshmallows have none of the unnecessary artificial colors, flavors or chemical stabilizers, nor any of the refined, GMO sugars that are in the store-bought variety. In face, all you need to make these yummy, honey-sweetened marshmallows are simple ingredients: Purified water, grass-fed gelatin, honey, maple syrup, real vanilla extract, and a pinch of sea salt.

Homemade marshmallows are really easy to make but you will need a candy thermometer to make sure the syrup gets to just the right temperature. You can find them easily at most kitchen goods stores or online. Also, you’ll want an upright stand mixer or old-fashioned hand mixer to make quick work of your marshmallows!

For the best s’mores ever, toast these babies up and smush them between gluten-free, dairy-free chocolate chip cookies. They are also outstanding in hot cocoa or masala chai tea.
