The easiest vegan yogurt to make.

If you love plant-based yogurt you are sure to be thrilled with this new vegan, nut milk recipe because it’s just so quick and easy to make. The ingredients are simply cashews, water and gut loving bacteria. Tenderising the cashews with a short pre-soak makes it easy to turn them into milk. With the Vibe Blender System you’ll get silky smooth milk in under a minute. There’s no straining or squeezing pulp, heating or adding thickeners to get a sumptuous result.

Homemade cashew yogurt is super creamy and has all the wonderful tang of a dairy yogurt. Whether you’re dairy-free, vegan, or just looking to change up your breakfast routine, you’ll love this yogurt. Cashew yogurt can be used in any dish that calls for dairy yogurt. We served ours with a lovely homemade cherry and chia jam.

Unlike animal milk, nut milk doesn’t naturally contain sugar. The Yogurt starter culture need something to feed on to allow the culturing process to take place. One teaspoon of sugar or one tablespoon of pasteurised honey is enough to kick start fermentation. Raw honey may have an antibiotic effect and is therefore not suitable for making yogurt.


You will need a yogurt starter culture or probiotic to introduce the fermentation of bacteria to your cashew milk. Use the amount of starter culture indicated on the packet or one dose of probiotic. Purchase Yogourmet non-dairy starter culture here.
