This coconut "yogurt" simply mimics the thick consistency of yogurt. If you're craving something like that that is homemade, this is the perfect recipe! It's dairy free, paleo and vegan. It's also really easy to make, so that's why I like it!
To grind chia seeds, grind them in a coffee or spice grinder like this one. The amount you will use for the yogurt will depend on how thick you want it to be. If you like it a little thinner, use 2 tbsp, if you like it really thick use 4 tbsp.
Place the whole can of coconut milk in a bowl. Add the desired amount of ground chia seeds and sweetener (you can also add the sweetener later if you want). Mix it with a stick blender. You can also use a regular blender to mix all the ingredients.
Put the mixture in a jar or tupperware container then place it in the fridge. Allow it to set for about 1-2 hours. When it's finished it will be thickened into a yogurt-like texture.
Serve with fruit or nuts and enjoy!
