Unbelievably Realistic Oat Vegan Yogurt
One of the first things we would like to teach people on our free events is how to veganize their essentials. We believe that the key to helping someone successfully transition to veganism is NOT forcing them to never crave the food they grew up with, but on the contrary – get used to the idea that vegan yogurt might not taste the same as what their tastebuds are used to, BUT there still is a healthy, delicious alternative that is kinder to your body, the animals, and the earth.
If you are just transitioning, or trying to help family members switch to a plant-based lifestyle, remember that compassion, understanding and tolerance is the most successful path to take! No one makes a change forcefully, but rather from an inner place of enthusiasm. Delicious vegan food can definitely help create this type of enthusiasm! Like this amazingly creamy oat vegan yogurt.

Unlike the common belief that homemade vegan yogurt is hard to put together, it is in fact remarkably uncomplicated, once you break the mind barrier that is stopping you from giving it a try. Plus, you have control over ingredients, flavors, thickness and ‘tartness’, and you can absolutely go wild on those, depending on what you feel like having right now.
What you need for this vegan yogurt is just
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 3 glasses fresh water (in the original recipe, it is 4 glasses, but since we are aiming for a creamier outcome, I use just 3)
- 1 tablespoon lemon (optional)
- 2-3 tablespoons store-bought soy milk or non-dairy starter
