This delicious zesty lemon yogurt can be used as a standalone breakfast item, smoothie base, or parfait layer (everybody loves parfait!). It is a great vegan alternative to regular yogurt, and though it takes some time to make, the result is worth it.

Zesty Lemon Yogurt

Soak the cashews for 4 - 6 hours to deactivate enzyme inhibitors.


  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup water
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 4 large medjool dates, pitted and soaked
  • 1/2 tsp lemon extract
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp probiotics


  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture into a large glass jar, and make sure that it is only about halfway full (divide the mixture between 2 jars if necessary).
  3. Cover the jar with cheesecloth, and secure in place with an elastic band.
  4. Leave the jar at room temperature for 12 hours.
  5. Put a lid on the jar, and refrigerate it for 12 hours.
  6. The yogurt can now be enjoyed! It can be stored in an airtight jar in a refrigerator for up to 5 days.


If the dates are not very soft, soak them in 1/4 cup warm water for 10 minutes to soften them.
