Raw vegan yoghurt from seeds and nuts, video with Rhio

Do you miss yoghurt in your raw vegan diet?
Here is the good news! You can make your own yoghurt from any kind of nut or seed. You can use almonds, macadamia nuts, walnuts, cashews, pine nuts, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds.
It is possible to use a yoghurt or kefir culture as a starter, but this is not really necessary, since the bacteria you need are all around you in the air.
It is important to soak the nuts overnight in filtered water at room temperature.

Ingredients for almond yoghurt:
2 cups peeled almonds
10 ounces water

Some nuts need more and some need less water. You will find out.
Blend the nuts and water until you get a creamy substance.
Squeeze the liquid out through a nut milk bag or cheese cloth.
In the meantime put the salsa on, move in the rhythm and have a great time ;-)
Pour the liquid in a jar and cover with a breathable cloth.
Let it sit for 8 to 12 hours in the warmest place in your kitchen.

Eat this delicious yoghurt with blue berries, figs, soaked goji berries, strawberries or any other fruit that is in season.
By the way, did you know, that you can eat the tops of strawberries? They are rich in chlorophyll and great to add for color.
This yoghurt makes a great breakfast, snack or light lunch.

It is healthy and contains the friendly bacteria so necessary for good intestinal health.

In this video Rhio shows you exactly how to make a raw food yoghurt.
