Want to get back into shape after the Christmas festivities of last month? Well, here’s a coconut yoghurt recipe that will help you fit back into those jeans for the new year!


Firstly, you would need to make the Coconut Yoghurt:

  • It is always a good thing to firstly make sure that all of your equipment is sterilized.
  • Mix the sugar and then the thickener into a small cup and keep aside.
  • Next, pour the coconut milk into a small pot and make sure that you stir until it is nice and smooth.
  • You now want to heat the milk to a temperature of approximately 50-52 degrees Celsius and constantly stir to prevent it from burning.
  • Pour out 125ml of the coconut milk from the pot and be sure to mix it into the dry ingredients. You can use either a whisk or a fork to vigorously mix it into a smooth paste.
  • Add this mixture together with the thickener mixture into the pot and stir well.
  • Now heat the coconut milk to a lower heat until the mixture has started to get thick. Once this happens, it is time to transfer it back into the jar that came with the kit.
  • Now cool the milk to approximately 40 degrees Celsius and then stir in the cultures.
  • Allow to ferment for about 18 hours in a relatively warm region of 35 degrees Celsius.
  • In the morning, check that the yoghurt has gone slightly sour and thick. If not, just allow to ferment for another 5 hours or so until it has thickened. Once thick, chill in a fridge where it will thicken even more.


Now’s the fun part – making the pudding!

You will need the following:

  • 200ml of the Mad Millie Coconut Yoghurt that was just made
  • 50ml of Full Cream or Low Fat milk
  • 2 tbsp of chia seeds
  • A squirt of lemon juice
  • ½ cup of blueberries
  • ½ ripe mango cut into small cubes
  • 10ml of Vanilla extract or essence



  • Mix together the coconut yoghurt, vanilla essence and milk into a bowl.
  • Mix in the chia seeds.
  • Cover and be sure to chill for at least a half an hour in the fridge.
  • Take the lemon juice and place it on the cut mango pieces.
  • Spoon the yoghurt mixture into a jar and then add the fruit.
  • If it is not sweet enough, you may add either some Golden or Maple Syrup.
