Directions

Crack open the coconuts with a cleaver or coconut knife and scrape out the coconut meat with the backside of a spoon. Remove any shell pieces or hard particles and rinse with fresh water. Place the coconut meat, coconut water, agave nectar, lime juice, sea salt, acidophilus probiotic powder if using and the lime zest in a high-speed blender and blend until completely smooth. Top with blueberries and goji berries and serve with fresh figs and apple slices. If you desire a firmer, chilled yogurt, place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before serving.

Notes

Cook's Note: If you are using the optional probiotic powder, cover the finished yogurt and let sit at room temperature for 2 hours to activate the probiotic cultures. Then chill in the refrigerator. Keeps for up to 5 days in a covered container. If fresh figs are out of season, use dried figs instead.

    Wonderful taste! I recently found this show and the recipes are healthy and tasty!
    I would like a healthy substitute for the agave nectar as it is more than 90% fructose, and that is not good. I'm trying to limit my calories (or grams) of sugar - especially fructose.
    If you can suggest a more healthy sweetener I would appreciate it!!
    Thanks

    This turned out perfect! I was skeptical because of the previous comment - but in my Blendtec blender it turned out smooth and creamy and the flavor was fantastic. Much more economical and healthy than store-bought stuff!

    The flavor is heavenly! However, with yogurt in the name I expected it to be a bit smoother and creamier, (and maybe it's my blender but it was more like shredded coconut. I would definitely make this again, but I won't call it yogurt.
