Fermented Oat Yogurt
All you need is:
1 cup rolled oats (or alternatively use cashew nuts)
1 cup filtered water
1 capsule probiotic or 1 tsp probiotic powder or 1 tsp miso (unpasteurised)
2 tbsp maple syrup or coconut nectar (or sweetener of your choice)
1 tbsp vanilla extract (optional)
Here’s what you do:
Rinse the soaked cashew nuts or, if you are using oats just follow from step 2. *I personally prefer oats as it's much cheaper and much lower in fat. Cashews of course has it's own benefits, but for everyday use I would go for oats and leave cashews for treats only :).
Add all the ingredients to a high speed blender and blend to a smooth paste.
Transfer the mixture to a clean jar and cover it.
Place the jar in a dark cool place and let it ferment for 12-48h (taste after 12h to see if it needs more time fermenting, it really depends on room temperature, the warmer it is the faster the fermentation will be)
Stir the yogurt and put it in the fridge to thicken. It will last for up to 5 days.
After it's ready enjoy with various toppings. I chose: blueberries (my antioxidants), pumpkin seeds (good source of zinc), hemp seeds (my omega 3s) and quinoa (high in various minerals and vitamin B). It's totally up to you what you want to add to your yogurt, or if you like it plain or add it to the smoothie it's all fine. Because oat/cashew yogurt is full of good bacteria as a result of fermentation, which does amazing things for your health.
