- 2 cups of coconut milk (preservative free)

- Mix the coconut milk with the culture in a glass container.
- Mesophilic cultures (milk kefir or buttermilk) will ferment at room temperature. When using a mesophilic culture leave it out on the counter for 24 hours.

- There isn’t a specific culture that eats coconut milk, so you can use any yogurt or dairy culture that you want. However, the culture won’t be happy in coconut milk, so you will need to use fresh culture for each batch of coconut milk.
- Milk kefir makes a nice thick coconut milk. Just be sure to refresh the kefir grains in milk after every batch of cultured coconut milk. Kefir is great because it can be made at room temperature, however, it’s not OK for people looking to avoid dairy contamination.
- Vegan yogurt is a great way to avoid dairy contamination. Just make sure to use a healthy and active culture.
