Prep Time5 minutes
Cook Time15 hours
Course: Breakfast


  • Instant Pot can also use a slow cooker or yogurt maker


  • 4 cups plant milk of choice must be single ingredient, no gums or additives
  • 4 capsules vegan probiotic 25 billion CFU


  • Add milk of choice into instant pot. Add vegan probiotic capsules, emptying the contents into the pot and give a gentle stir to combine.
  • Hit the yogurt setting for 13-15 hours (adjust based on your preferred tangy-ness).
  • If desired, adjust taste and sweetness with liquid sweetener of choice, then transfer the mixture to an airtight, sterile container and store in the fridge.


Secrets to Success

  • I think soy milk makes the best vegan yogurt, but you can use plant-based alternatives like cashew milk, coconut milk, oat milk, almond milk, and more. Just make sure you use the unsweetened flavor and choose a non-dairy milk brand that doesn’t contain any additives or gums. 
  • The probiotics in yogurt promote good gut bacteria and add a tangy flavor to the yogurt. This is essential to the homemade yogurt-making process, so don’t skip! 

Serving Tips

Serve your vegan yogurt in a bowl with any of your favorite toppings, add it to smoothies or recipes that call for yogurt, or turn it into dessert. Here are some toppings, different flavors, and recipes I love! 
  • Granola
  • Fresh Berries: Blueberry, Strawberry, Raspberry, or Blackberry
  • Chia Jam
  • Banana Jam 
  • Fresh Fruit: Mango, Pineapple, Coconut, Peach, and more. 
  • Vanilla Bean
  • Nuts: Cashews, Almonds, and more. 

Storage Tips

Store the plain yogurt in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Store toppings separately and add when serving.
