Serves 4 to 6
If you want to have a happy gut, you’ve got to have probiotics in your diet on a regular basis. They help boost your immunity, regularity, and digestive power. Yogurt is traditionally one of the best ways to get your daily dose of probiotics. This nondairy, coconut-based yogurt is just as creamy, tangy, and tantalizing as the traditional version made from cow’s milk. Add your favorite fresh or dried fruit, granola, or trail mix to take this parfait over the top!
4 young Thai coconuts, cracked and drained
1/2 cup Harmless Coconut Probiotics Original
3 limes, juiced and zested
1/8 cup coconut nectar
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 cup gluten-free granola
1/4 cup raw pistachios
1/4 cup goji berries
1 pint fresh blackberries
Handful of fresh mint leaves
Crack open the young Thai coconuts with a cleaver or coconut knife and scrape out the coconut meat with the back side of a spoon. Remove any shell pieces or hard particles and rinse with fresh water. Blend the coconut meat, Harmless Probiotics, lime juice, 1 tablespoon lime zest, coconut nectar, and sea salt in a high-speed blender for 30 to 40 seconds until completely smooth, dense and creamy.
Transfer the yogurt mixture to a medium mixing bowl. Refrigerate for 30 to 60 minutes, depending on your desired consistency. It will get thicker the longer you leave it in the fridge.
Remove the yogurt from the fridge. Spoon into a glass mason jar, starting with a layer of yogurt on the bottom, then a layer of gluten-free granola, another layer of yogurt and top with blackberries, goji berries, pistachios and a spring of fresh mint. The yogurt will last for up to five days in a covered container in the fridge.
