video: How to make Coconut Milk Yogurt with Thermomix

Thermomix coconut milk yogurt Since this blog began in 2009 I’ve enjoyed introducing readers to Thermomix reviews, news, blogs, and videos that are worthy of our attention. (Not everything is worth the time it takes to read or watch. The purpose of some Thermo-related articles appears to be simply to manipulate internet traffic, while others don’t do justice to my favourite kitchen machine.) But this is a good week because it sees the launch of a new video channel from Australia that shows merit and the promise of more good things to come.

The new ThermoHOW video channel features “Jill” teaching us make things easily using our fave kitchen machine. In these early days there a few recipes on the shiny new ThermoHOW blog but Jill assures she is busy preparing more to appear soon in video format. Jill’s first video is about how to make a thick and creamy Thermomix Coconut Milk Yoghurt (or “yogurt” for those in North America). Coconut milk yogurt is also known as “COYO”.

    What would be the Canadian equivalent of an Easiyo? I have to admit I have never heard of such a thing.

    Hi ElsieD — one of the more popular ones in Canada is Yogurmet which you can find in most health food stores and also here. If you ask at your local health food store, I’m sure they will have something similar to offer. The Easiyo appears to be non-electrical, and you can replicate that by incubating your yogurt in other ways, such as keeping it warm in the oven with the light bulb on, or wrapping it in a thick towel etc. Hope this helps!

    The Easiyo is basically a plastic wide-mouth thermos (and is non-electrical). It is the boiling water (& having the lid on) that keeps your culture warm. I happen to have a couple of glass 1L jars that fit in my Easiyo & I use those in preference to the plastic container that comes with the Easiyo. (I bought an Easiyo over other wide mouthed thermoses because it was significantly cheaper than anything else available at the time).

    What a fabulous idea! I love coconut milk and buy it all the time. This would be a much cheaper alternative!

    Hi! You are using your cup upside down in this video. You should only use it in that position with the butterfly. It can be dangerous if you are using heat.

    Loved the recipe and will give it a go soon.

    Hi Cat: You have a keen eye! I too had spotted Jill using the cap in the upside down position but decided not to mention it and see if anyone else noticed. This is a very common and understandable mistake, as it feels somewhat counter-intuitive to put the cap on with the rim facing upward. People who don’t read the instruction manual or who miss out on having a full demon will assume the cap goes on as Jill is doing it. The proper way to put the cap on the lid is so that it looks like a cup, or “U” shape when in place.

    Where can I buy a bimby? And how much are they can I get a bargain in the sales ?

    Hi Gillian: I think you are in the USA and I’m sorry to say the Bimby/Thermomix is not sold there at this time. But if you want to stay informed on its availability, use this page. Cheers, H.

    I’m planning to get my thermomix in the next few weeks and plan to make the coconut yogurt asap, as mentioned before it will be so much cheaper!
