Luscious Nut Yogurt


1 1/3 cup whole RAW blanched skinned almonds or RAW blanched hazelnuts (filberts) or RAW macadamias (you can also use pre made nut flour if you want to skip the step of blanching and skinning the nuts. I found it almost impossible to skin hazelnuts)

2 tbsp wild honey (will be absorbed when dehydrating)


1 pkg of yogurt starter -yogurmet

  1. Put nuts (or flour) into blender
  2. Add enough cold water to get a total of 4 cups.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of honey
  4. Blend until mixture reaches 100 on a yogurt thermometer, let cool to just below 100
  5. Add yogurt starter to 1/4 cup of the nut milk
  6. Stir well with whisk; add the rest of the milk
  7. Stir well and place container in dehydrator on yogurt setting (115) for 12 to 15 hours
  8. Stir and store in fridge for up to 1 week (This lasts me and me fella about a week)

This nut yoghurt is a great alternative for goat or cow's yogurt, and it is so delicious as a topping for fruit or pie in place of ice cream or whipping cream, yippee!!! Enjoy!

New products

When things get quiet I have learned to listen carefully. In the past silence has scared me, especially when it comes to business.

This year I was able to recognize that the quiet times offer huge opportunities for growth, if you can ignore the fear monster.

The result for us this year was a whole new line of products.

I am so grateful that I was able to let myself float through the fear that often accompanies business in quiet times. 2010 is going to be prosperous.

What I have learned from the last year is that tough times are actually an amazing catalyst for creativity and really shows you your own strength of character.

It was a good lesson, I am strong...
