Vanilla Yogurt

Blueberry Bowl

Yogurt is a wonderful comfort food.  It’s both sweet and tangy, and it’s good for you!  Yogurt is great drizzled on top of a bowl of cereal for breakfast.  It’s a tasty treat for lunch alongside a sandwich and makes a great, simple dinner too.  There’s no time that’s not the right time for yogurt.


Lots of stores carry soy yogurt these days.  But what if you’re allergic to soy?  Or what if you don’t have the money to blow a buck a pop for these things?

Solution?  Homemade yogurt with almond milk.  I have been pleased both with the texture and flavor of this simple recipe.

  1. Hi there, I am curious if the peanut butter listed in ingredients is a typo?
    My hubby can’t tolerate dairy anymore and I am looking for tasty substitutes.
    Thank you. Karen

    • Hey Karen, thanks for asking. I agree it seems strange. However, the peanut butter is not a typo although I would say it is optional. It does add a nice creamy texture. For a more neutral flavor, try substituting 1-2 Tbsp. of coconut oil or coconut butter, or leave it out altogether. My husband is allergic to milk. Good luck with newly-discovered creativity!

  2. I can’t quite bring myself to purchase agar powder for the purpose of putting it in my food. That stuff is for growing bacteria on plates. lol.

  3. I don’t have agar powder, have you had success with an other thickener?
