Easy Vegan Yogurt

Easy Vegan Yogurt

Dr. Michelle Schoffro Cook, author of The Cultured Cook, shares her simple vegan recipe for easy vegan yogurt! Michelle has crafted a recipe that eliminates the straining curds from whey process. It’s quick, easy and delicious.

Speaking about simplifying the process, Michelle says, “While it still takes several hours for the probiotics to proliferate, giving yogurt its signature tangy taste, in a mere few minutes of actual prep time you can make your own yogurt.”
