View Full Version : Raw alternative to yoghurt
05-12-2009, 03:30 AM
I have had a flareup of my colitis/crohns the last couple of days and are really feeling like eating soy yoghurt. It use to be soooo good for my poor colon when it hurts. Is there a raw alternative to it ?
Please no nuts or seeds as I think that eating to much of them the last 4 days have set of the flareup (nutchees and tahini).
I have heard of fermentet coconutwater but im not to crazy about coconut. And other idears ? any would be greatly apricatet :D
Been eating bananas all morning as my stomac has been hurting really badly :(

You could try oat yogurt
1 cup flaked or coarsely ground(in vitamix)
1 cup water or rejuvalec
1/2 tsp unpasteurized miso(if not using rejuvalec)
Blend oats, slowly pouring water and miso in
You can also add some previously made to help with fermentation
Let sit in a warm place, and cover but don't seal
Let ferment 6-10 hours or until desired sourness, then refrigerate.
This came from a book I have called "Healing with Whole Foods"
We have tried this out and we didn't like the yogurt but I then dehydrated it and my husband loves it. He makes nut butter and honey sandwiches out of it.
There is also another recipe for Yogurt Dressing that might be better. Here it is
1 cup oat yogurt(above)
1 beet diced
1 clove of garlic(optional)
Juice of 1 lemon
Miso or soy sauce to taste(I guess you could sub with Nama Shoyu)
Combine all and blend until creamy. I haven't tried this but I am planning on it this week. I hope you start to feeling better!

I soak or sprout buckwheat and then blend it with fruit. It gets a yoghurty texture, but still has the floury buckwheatyness. I like that, but i find that it's very individual.
Blending frozen berries with banana for something smooth and fruity?
But if yoghurt used to do the trick, why not try some sauerkraut or kim chee for lactic acid?

ok - here's the deal:
soak cashew for several hours - rinse, put in blender. Blend up smooth with just enough water to process, probably a little less than the cashews - so kind of sorta like 1 cup cashews - 3/4 cup water.
Open 2 pro-biotic capsule per cup of cashews, put the cashew creme and the powder from the capsule in glass or sm glass bowl. Cover with kitchen towel and put on top of the fridge. Check every 12 hours till done to taste test - tastes like plain yogurt/sour cream. Then refrigerate.
Add whatever you want to it!
