Author Notes

A very non-traditional approach to yogurt! This dairy-free blend mixes cashews and bananas for creamy sweetness, along with a touch of lime for tartness. It's easy to prepare and it's a perfect base for granola and fruit or muesli. —Gena Hamshaw

  • Serves 4
  • 1 cup cashews, soaked overnight, rinsed, and drained
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2/3 cup coconut water
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
In This Recipe
  1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor or a high speed blender till smooth, then serve. Yogurt will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.

The best use of over ripe bananas! So easy and so yummy. I really appreciate that there is no added sugar. TY!

This sounds delicious but I don't really think it should be called yogurt bc yogurt is fermented and this is not.

I’m passing this on to a family member who has a number of food allergies. This looks delicious and I don’t see any food items he can’t eat. It sounds good. Frankly, I didn’t know you could make homemade yogurt that easy. There’s so much you can make with yogurt, but I wouldn’t touch the stuff they sell in most supermarkets. Will pass the recipe on and have someone make it for me before I try it.

Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I just tried this and loved it.
I'm not necessarily a vegan, but I love raw foods and raw desserts, and I love recipes with just healthy ingredients. Before I started making this yogurt, my yogurt of choice used to be Greek yogurt. As for the calories, I think this one will come to be less, since the only high-calorie food in there is banana, which is about 105 calories (http://www.fitwirr.com/health/tips/banana-calories)
