GUT HEALING DAIRY FREE YOGHURT
Gut healing, creamy, nutritious, and utterly delicious dairy-free probiotic yoghurt. Blend with any fruit or fruit puree of your choice to make delicious flavoured yoghurt.
- 1 1/2 cups soaked cashews
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 - 2 probiotic (please use the one you have been prescribed - for PANDAS kids avoid probiotics containing streptococcus thermophilus)
Soak the cashews in water for at least 6 hours - the water should cover the nuts by a couple of inches.
Drain the cashews and rinse them well.
Place the drained cashews, 1 1/2 cups of water and the probiotic in a blender or food processor and blend/process until completely smooth - it should take between 1 to 3 minutes, depending on the power of your machine.
Place in a glass jar and cover with muslin or cheesecloth and leave somewhere warm, like an airing cupboard, for up to 24 hours
The yoghurt should taste sour, like lemon when done.
THE SCIENCE BIT
The fat in CASHEWS is almost entirely made of oleic acid (found in olive oil) with strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
