Joyful Belly Coconut Milk & Honey Yogurt

It’s so simple to culture your own yogurt! I still remember the first quivery spoonful from my first batch years ago. I enjoy making it in the early morning after I SIT.SIP.n.BE fully present. Or, sometimes I make it just before bed, instead, which makes for a very relaxing bed time routine. My coconut milk yogurt is AIP friendly (it has to be if I’m eating it!).

There is something very nurturing about the process of stirring, concocting this n’ that, filling jars, tightening lids and ‘tucking the jars into bed’ to culture away. Every time I set the jars on a heating pad under a wool “culturing sweater” I feel a little giddy… knowing there are magical things at work, changing and creating new probiotics on their own, and that the end result will be so good for me . . . joyful belly, indeed.

I’ve come up with a recipe that has the added benefits of gelatin and pea protein to make it more nutrient-dense . . . each single-serving jar of this yogurt has about 4 grams protein (protein is usually lacking in homemade coconut yogurt). And I’m including my optional flavor variations, which I created for their anti-inflammatory properties.

May your belly be welly. Enjoy! Continue reading

EARTH: it’s what you sit on, or where you set your feet, when you SIT.SIP.n.BE fully present (porch, steps, grass, snow, dirt or sand). The earth can be perceived by all five senses—hearing, touch, sight, taste and smell.

WATER: it’s what you’re sippin’ (in that herbal tea or lemon water). Water has no odor, but can be perceived by the other four senses—it can be heard, felt, seen, and tasted.

FIRE: it’s what heated up the water on your stove. Fire can be Continue reading
