Raw Almond Yogurt

This Raw Almond Yogurt is a great easy raw food recipe to add in to your collection. It is simple and versatile. You can add in fresh fruit and nuts, granola and coconut flakes, or make a quick strawberry sauce and swirl it in for variety.

Every time I make this and the Cacao Granola Recipe, it reminds me of when I worked for a small wholesale baking company when I was in high school. The owner made an almond torte that smelled ridiculously amazing. We worked in a very small shop so the smells were quite intoxicating. Ever since then I go ga-ga over the smell of almond extract. I found a hand soap once that smelled like it and thought I was in heaven! So, if you find your recipes are coming out too almond-y, you can blame my love for almond extract and just go easier on it next time you make the recipes.

In this easy raw food recipe, it is best to pull the shells off of the almonds before blending them up to keep a pretty cream color. This is very easy to do if you have soaked them for over eight hours. You can just squeeze them between your fingers and pop the middles right out. It can be kind of meditative... if you don't have two small children yelling and running around while you are doing it like me! :)

I love using this recipe to make what looks like a banana split for breakfast. All you do is add less water than what the recipe calls for, just enough to get it to mix but still keep the yogurt really thick. Then you can use an ice cream scoop to make two scoops of yogurt in a pretty dish. Top one side with a chocolate sauce, coconut flakes, and chopped cherries and the other side with strawberry sauce and cacao nibs. If you have some made, you can even top it with some raw whipped cream! This makes for a very pretty presentation that is delicious and very nutritious! Plus, it is a great way to present it to picky children. Ice Cream for Breakfast!!!

The Recipe

  • 1 cup almonds, soaked overnight and shells pulled off
  • juice of half a lemon
  • agave to taste
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract, or more to taste!
  • 3-4 probiotic capsules
  • About 3/4 cup water

To make the Almond Yogurt, add almonds, lemon juice, agave, and almond extract to blender with 1/2 cup water. Keep blending and adding water until desired consistency. Dump the powder from the probiotic capsules in and blend again. Yummy!

This will keep in the refrigerator for a couple days. If it has been longer than three days, I would taste a small bit of it before topping it with anything. You can taste the fermentation when it's gone a little too far around the corner. This is not a terribly big deal, it just doesn't taste very good
