So, after perusing the Internet, I was super excited to find this recipe for oat yogurt. A non dairy recipe for yogurt made from oats? Um, yes, please. Off to Whole Foods I went (sorry CD) for some raw oat groats:
After soaking the oats in water overnight, I blended the groats plus soaking water in my Vita-Mix. Look how creamy…just like cooked oat bran!
Then I set up my Coscto HeatDish, aka The Fermenting Machine (No worries CD. It won’t stink…I think.):
Although my recipe said allow the oats to ferment for a few days, I went ahead and had a bowl after only 24 hours. They already tasted a bit tangy, but I’m going to let the rest continue to ferment. Be sure to stay tuned for tomorrow’s breafast.
My bowl consisted of one cup of oat yogurt with 1 heaping spoonful of Artisana’s raw Cacao Bliss and a sliced banana:
I warmed the Cacao Bliss (it’s solid at room temperature) by placing the jar in front of my HeatDish for a few minutes. After it melted a bit, I stirred it into my oats. The flavors of tangy yogurt mixed with chocolate, coconut, and banana…unreal! Yum – who doesn’t love a delicious bowl of friendly Lactobacilli micro-organisms in the morning?
