Keto Coconut Yogurt

Don't have time to make homemade coconut yogurt? There are lots of great keto-friendly coconut yogurt brands popping up and available at more and more grocery stores. 


1 can Native Forest Coconut Milk*

1/8 tsp. yogurt starter*

1/2 tsp. gelatin (or use agar agar if you want to make it vegan/vegetarian)

Frontier Flavor extracts* to taste - about 3 tsp. (Adjust as per your flavor preference/liking. This brand offers a variety of non-alcoholic flavors including strawberry, banana, coffee, and vanilla. Get creative!)

Pure stevia or monk fruit to taste 


You'll Need:

  • 1-16 oz. Mason jar with a lid
  • 1 cooking thermometer


  • Heat coconut milk in a saucepan to 180 degrees F, but do not allow it to boil. Remove from heat.
  • ASAP, add gelatin to your hot coconut milk and stir thoroughly.
  • Add stevia and flavor extract. Cover your mix and let cool to 95 degrees F.
  • Mix in your yogurt starter. Stir thoroughly.

Pour into a Mason jar. Close your jar with its lid. Let it sit at about 105 degrees for 7-9 hours. There are a few ways to do this. You can use a heating pad, a dehydrator, or a pressure cooker. The longer you let it ferment, the sourer it will be.

Stir your mix and refrigerate for a minimum of 6 hours.  For a little added crunch and extra protein, top with some of our No B.S. Trail Mix. Enjoy!
