Recipe: Vegan Yogurt

Rated 5.0 stars by 1 users

This non-dairy yogurt is prepared with pectin and calcium water. Working with non-dairy milks can be a bit tricky, and some brands of ingredients may work better than others. This recipe was tested with several brands of pectin and only Pomona's Pectin successfully created desired results.


Each box of Pomona's Universal Pectin includes pectin and a separate packet of monocalcium phosphate to make calcium water.

Some alternative milks have added calcium. If the milk thickens in the blender when pectin is added, do not use calcium water. Doing so can result in overly thickened yogurt.

To make calcium water put 1/2 teaspoon white calcium powder and 1/2 cup water in a small, clear jar with lid and shake well.

Useful for thickening non-dairy yogurt. Since the pectin doesn't require sugar to jell jams, jellies, and yogurts can be made with little or no sugar. Other possible sweeteners that can be used in place of sugar are honey, fructose, sucanat, concentrated fruit sweetener, maple syrup, agave, frozen juice concentrate, stevia, xylitol, Splenda, or other sweeteners.
