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.

  3. Pour the milk into a milk bag and squeeze as much of the liquid out of the bag as possible.
  4. Either save the fiber for cookies or disgard.
  5. If the temperature isn't the same as body temperature 98.6'F then warm it up slightly.Use a candy thermometer to check the heat.
