Vegan Banana Cashew Yogurt

October 14, 2015

Test Kitchen-Approved

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.

Serves: 4


  • 1 cup cashews, soaked overnight, rinsed, and drained

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.<br /><br />

Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I just tried this and loved it. <br />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 (<br /><br />
