2 Minute Dairy Free Yogurt Recipe
2 minute dairy free yogurt recipe. Healthy cashew yogurt ready in just minutes! This creamy paleo yogurt is perfect served for breakfast with fruit. Made with just three ingredients- and one of them is water. 🙂
That moment when you NEED yogurt, but don’t want to drive to town and don’t want to wait forever for it to get all… you know, yogurt-y.
My thoughts exactly.
This creamy cashew yogurt is made with three ingredients you probably already have in your pantry- and one of them is water!!
…Does water even count as an ingredient?
Eh, who care!
I’m just here for all the yogurt. 🙂
Yes, I know this yogurt doesn’t have any actual probiotics.
So, it’s not technically legal-yogurt like you see in chilled aisle in the grocery stores.
But who cares about legal yogurt when you can have instant dairy-free yogurt!
It looks like yogurt, kinda taste like yogurt, and it’s creamy like yogurt, so I’m happy.
We are going all-out-fruity over here with some bananas to finish off this creamy breakfast dish.
You can pick any toppings your heart desires or go basic with some granola, which would be fabulous!
The great part about this recipe is: if you want to make this traditional yogurt, you can add probiotics and let it ferment and get all like, yogurt-y. 🙂
2 minute yogurt
I feel like I’m the fast food of health food bloggers.
I like food, but I don’t have the patience of a gourmet chef.
So with me, it’s always: how can I make this recipe easier, faster, and healthier- my thought process always.
I’ve tried making yogurt before and let’s be real- I kept checking in on it and checking in on it… and it just didn’t go over well.
So, in my attempt to come up with a more approachable take on homemade yogurt, I went with the make-it-in-a-blender-instantly-version.
Not made about it. AT ALL.
The texture of this homemade yogurt is spot on!
It’s so creamy, you’re gonna want to take a swim. 🙂
I suggest storing this recipe in the fridge for about 4-6 days.
What I love about this recipe:
- No fancy equipment needed!
- Zero waiting around
- No mess, no fuss.
- Creamy factor!!!
- Dairy free. 🙂
….Shall I go on?
P.S. these are the cute jars I love to store my yogurt in.
- 1 cup raw cashews raw
- 2 cups hot water
- 1 1/4 teaspoon gelatin
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract optional
- pinch of sea salt
|Prep Time||2 minutes|
- In a high powered blender combine all ingredients for 2 minutes on high until smooth.
- Pour into a glass jar and chill in fridge until reaches desired consistency and cools down then stir well until smooth and use.

This looks awesome! Is it 1-2 servings? Also how long does it sit in the fridge to reach consistency?
Hi Shelby, it makes 4 servings and chills in the fridge- depends on your fridge really.. mine took 1-2 hours.
Well done! I had to laugh at, “how can I make this recipe easier, faster, and healthier” because I’m always thinking the same. Except… you’re more productive! (and I’m thankful!)
Haha, thank Robin!
Hello! I love this recipe I’m definitely gonna try it!
Does it works with almonds instead of cashews?
Is it needed to soak the nuts before?
Can I replace the gelatin with mandioca flour?
Thank you so much and keep posting this goodies 💖
Hi Vera, I think it would be different with almonds than cashews- it wouldn’t be as creamy I think. And I’ve never heard of mandioca flour before…
Love getting your emails. Definitely making this over the weekend, as I ordered those cute little jars too. How long do you think this “fauxgurt” will keep in the refrigerator? A week? I’m sure it will be all gone by then anyway but just wondering…
Thanks Rhonda! I keep it in the fridge for 5-7 days. 🙂
I don’t tolerate cashews very well…could I use macadamias instead? Thanks so much.
Hi Ashley, that should work!
You are the absolute best food blogger ever !!😍😍 There’s nothing you can’t adapt to Paleo !! And your pictures are just… delicious… I’m sure I’ll one day bite my screen while craving… 😂😜 Please, never stop your amazing work !! ❤️❤️
Oh Thank you SO much Garazi! That means a lot. 🙂
Hi! I love it ❤️ Definitely I have to try this recipe, but can I use tapioca starch (we do not eat gelatin at home)?? Thank you so much!!!
Hi Fran, I don’t think that would work the same. I wouldn’t try it- it would be really goopy and gummy.
Do you think collagen powder would yield the same results as gelatin?
Hi Fete, I don’t think you would get the exact same results, but it is a good sub. 🙂
Can you use xantan gum to sub the gelatin? Or any other vegan substitute?
Hi Carolina, I think that might change the texture too much and be slimy…
Is it possible to substitute agar for gelatin?
Hi Claire, I have never cooked with agar before, so I’m not sure…?
Substitute the same amount of agar powder and you’re good to go.
Is there a reason you didn’t just break open a few probiotic capsules and add them? I’ve done that with coconut milk a few times, but maybe if you’re eating it right away you won’t get the tang from the probiotics?
Hi Tori, yes- I eat this right away, so I am not waiting for it to ferment… but you could totally try that for a traditional yogurt taste. 🙂
If you didn’t eat it right away and did add a probiotic capsule, how long would you wait for it to ferment?
Probably 24-48 hours.
Would unsalted Roasted Cashews work?
Hi Jess, yes- that should work!
