Raw Almond Yogurt or Almond Sour Cream

Jo Zimny


I found this recipe on The Renegage Health Show. Ann Marie Giani posted this recipe. I found the yogurt was a bit watery so next time I make it I will use at least one cup less of water and let it drain longer. The flavour is delicious, at this stage it isn't tart or bitter at all!

I doubled the recipe so I used 2 cups nuts, 2 tbsp. sweetener, 5 cups water and 1 packet of yogurt starter.
