Cultured Young Thai Coconut Yogurt | Using Rejuvelac

LoadingFavoriteAdd to favorites

Cultured-Young-Thai-Coconut-Yogurt-(with-rejuvelac)-fThere are many ways to culture young Thai coconut when making homemade yogurt.  Each method deserves its own posting, because there is always so much to learn about each technique.

Sprouted Quinoa Rejuvelac…

Speaking of which, today I used sprouted quinoa rejuvelac to ferment my yogurt.  I will be honest… I learned how to make rejuvelac many years ago, but the desire to explore it never really stuck. Everything comes into focus in its due time, I guess, and today is its due time. I did a separate posting on how to make it, and you will find a link below within the ingredient list.

Where I Buy My Coconut Meat…

I purchase coconut meat through Exocticsuperfoods.com. I have been ordering from them for about five years now, and truthfully it’s just about the only way that I buy young Thai coconut meat anymore. Long gone are my days of cracking open cases of coconuts to process the meat and water, and then freezing it till I have a recipe inspiration.  Even though their price may seem high, in the end, I find it much cheaper and more reliable.

If you decide to crack your own coconuts, make sure that you remove all of the brown membranes from the white meat. And since the meat inside of the young Thai coconuts is unpredictable, it can take anywhere from two to four coconuts to get enough meat to make your yogurt. Please check out (this) post that I did regarding young Thai coconuts. I think you will find it helpful. :)


Yields 2-3 cups


  1. First and foremost, make sure all of the utensils and pieces of equipment you use for culturing are sterilized, to avoid growing bad bacteria.
    • If at any time you see mold–fuzzy, pink, or black–it will need to be tossed.
  2. Place the coconut meat, water,  rejuvelac, and stevia in the blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Don’t let the mixture overheat in the blender, as the probiotics can be damaged.
  4. Use a glass jar or bowl that has been washed and rinsed in hot water.  Transfer the yogurt to the fermenting container.
    • Cover and place in a dark spot for 24-48 hours.
    • If you wish to speed up the process, you can place the container in a dehydrator set at 110 (F) for  4 – 7 hours.
    • Taste test and see if you want it to ferment longer.
  5. Store your yogurt in the fridge with a tight lid.  It should last for 5 days.

    FYI – In your preparation, line 1, you probably want to change the word probiotic powder with rejuvelac.

    I love coconut yogurt made this way. I put a small bottle of the coconut water with the coconut meat and probiotic powder in the blender. Keeps for a month. I make 3 containers at a time. Love this stuff.

      That’s awesome to hear Monique. To be honest, I didn’t know they would even last that long since we tend to it sooner than later. Thanks so much for sharing. Have a happy day, amie sue

    Amie, thanks again❣ I do make my own rejuvelac but never tried using it for making yogurt (I use grains from Cultures for Health). I will make your recipe next :D).

    • amie-sue says:

      You’re welcome Annie. It’s nice to have and use different cultures… or at least just knowing that a person has options can be a sense of relief. :) When you make the rejuvelac what grain do you use? Have a happy day! amie sue

      • Annie says:

        Hi Amie :D), I often use wheat berries for my rejuvelac but sometimes alternate with quinoa or rye. I can hardly wait to use your recipe in my next “Buko” yogurt batch. ( “Buko” is the name of young coconut in the Philippines :D)

        • amie-sue says:

          I love BUKO!! lol I didn’t know they were called that. :)

          I learned how to make it with wheat berries but we can’t do gluten or have it in the house… so glad that there are so many alternatives. Thank you for sharing that. It will inspire other readers. amie sue (hugs)
