The cashew nut is a beautiful thing! It can create all kinds of creamy dreamy deliciousness, and this strawberry cashew yogurt is no exception.
This recipe was inspired by a reader request that I do a vegan yogurt. I had it on my to-do list for months!
The reason it took so long was I was initially planning to do a coconut yogurt but I am most definitely too lazy to cut open numerous fresh coconuts to dig out the coconut meat.
So I was looking for frozen coconut meat or some other way for ‘someone else to do it for me’ which didn’t work out too well as I definitely did not find any of those options around here.
And then like a little lightbulb flash in the ole’ noggin it hit me.
Why not make a cashew yogurt instead? Soooo much easier when you don’t have access to done-for-you coconut meat.
And cashews are wonderfully up for the task.
They’re so perfectly creamy and smooth in texture and this recipe requires just 8-ingredients and you have yourself some cashew yogurt that can rival any yogurt you’ve had before!
It also takes only 10 minutes to prepare this strawberry yogurt, so complicated yogurt making techniques are definitely not required!
This strawberry cashew yogurt is perfectly smooth, wonderfully creamy, has the ideal amount of sweetness and that mild tartness that any self respecting yogurt expects to have!
This makes a fabulous snack or have it for breakfast served with fresh fruit.

- 1 tsp Vanilla
- Pinch Sea Salt

- Open up the capsules of probiotics and empty the contents into the blender jug.
- Blend until it is very smooth and no longer grainy. This may take a few minutes.

- If not, then stop regularly and scrape down the sides of the blender and blend again.
- Pour out into two bowls and serve with fresh sliced strawberries.
