This Homemade Coconut Yogurt is incredibly easy and quick to make. My recipe is a no ferment coconut yogurt. Why is that important?
Medical Medium states that fermented food is not helpful to our guts. The ‘bacteria’ found in fermented foods (also known as probiotics) are not beneficial to digestion. The bacteria involved in fermentation are the bacteria of decay. They are the same bacteria that make your strawberries get moldy. We don’t eat moldy food, so why are we ok with fermented foods? Our body does its best to expel the bacteria that cause decay in our bodies as quickly as possible. After consuming fermented foods, the body will often drive a bowel movement to remove the decay bacteria. People often mistake this for a ‘healthy’ sign that the probiotics are doing their job.
What are the good bacteria for our guts?
These are found on the surface of freshly picked fruits and vegetables and are called elevated biotics. They make it past the hydrochloric acid in our stomach, and when they enter the intestines, they make their home in our ileum and appendix. Here, their job is to produce B12 and support and back up the liver.
Without fermentation, we obtain a lot more nutrition from coconuts! Coconuts are a life-changing food. Medical Medium states in his book, Life Changing Foods, that “coconuts enhance the power of anything they touch”, which means, when combined with healing foods, coconut supercharges those benefits. Coconut water is very similar to human blood. Coconuts help with insomnia by providing the right blend of mineral salts for neurotransmitter production in our brains. “Coconut meat is highly antipathogenic” and “when coconut drops from the stomach into the intestinal tract, it kills off any pathogen it touches.”
Homemade Coconut Yogurt (No Ferment)
- 1 can full fat coconut milk

- Be careful not to let the cream mix with the water.
- Blend the coconut cream and lemon juice together.
