Have you ever made homemade 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.

Making homemade easy vegan yogurt is actually a simple 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.”
