My latest obsession is Instant Pot oconut milk yogurt. My next two posts will utilize coconut yogurt in both a savory & sweet applications, so it only made sense to give coconut milk yogurt it’s own post :)
Homemade coconut milk yogurt is completely different than any other yogurt I’ve ever tasted. I use to occasionally splurge on commercially made coconut milk yogurt, but most brands have some not-so-great additives, and I didn’t really love the flavor or texture. My homemade version has just enough tang without being exceptionally sour & a slight coconut-y essence without being super sweet coconut. The yogurt separates very easily, making it is very easy just scoop off the thickened top portion, almost like sour cream. Or for more of a yogurt “sauce” consistency, vigorously shaking the jar works well.
I did not realize how much I was missing cultured dairy products, like sour cream, creme fraiche, and yogurt, until I began making this completely AIP coconut milk yogurt. I can see a whole world of applications, from sweet uses, to savory uses, to dressings & sauces and so much more! The possibilities are endless.

Note on FODMAPs: FODMAPs are confusing things... Certain resources will say that one item is “ok” and other resources will list that item as “avoid.” I am choosing to get my information about FODMAPs from Monash University & their app. Monash is continually updating their information & they are great about listing what quantity of food (both by volume & by weight) keeps it within the low FODMAP guidelines. As always, though, you know your body best. Just because one list says a food is fine, doesn’t always mean your body will be fine with it. Or on the flip side, just because one list says a food is on the avoid list, doesn’t mean your body is automatically going to be bothered by it. Do what makes your body & mind feel the best.
Two-Ingredient Instant Pot Coconut Milk Yogurt (AIP, Paleo, Low FODMAP)
2 caps Xymogen Probiomax DF Probiotic (or other comparable multi-strain probiotic; this one has 100 billion CFUs)
1 33.8 fl oz carton AROY-D Coconut Cream
- Empty one probiotic cap into each jar. Divide the AROY-D Coconut Cream evenly between the two quart-sized mason jars Cap the jar with a sterile lids & shake well to combine. Remove the lids.
- Place both jars, without their lids, into the stainless steel insert of an Instant Pot 7-in-1 Pressure Cooker. Seal the top. Set the vent to “sealing”
- Press the “yogurt” button & set the time to 12 hours.
- After 12 hours, remove the jars from the Instant Pot Refrigerate, uncovered for at least 12 additional hours before consuming. Top with a lids & continue storing in the refrigerator.
- The yogurt may separate unto more solid yogurt at the top & what looks like water at the bottom. I mix the two together, producing a more liquid-y yogurt. If you prefer, just take the top layer for a thicker product.
- I have not tried this yogurt with any other brand of probiotics, but I believe other mulit strain protiotics should work.
- I do not recommend using a soil-based probiotic like Prescript-Assist for this application.
- I have not tried any other brand of coconut cream other than AROY-D Coconut Cream nor have I substituted coconut milk instead of cream.
