Homemade Coconut Yogurt



For me, breakfast is usually the same as lunch or dinner. But I just discovered a new raw recipe for homemade coconut yogurt from Jenny, a woman who loves the bounty that Guam has to offer. Now I can have fruit parfaits, smoothies, etc. It's easy, delicious, raw, and so good for you!

Ingredients:

Probiotic powder (from probiotic capsule)
Manha (young coconut meat)
coconut water (buko juice)

1. Blend manha till smooth.  Add coconut water till desired consistency.
2. Add probiotic powder; for every four cups of blended manna it takes two probiotic capsules. Lightly blend.
3. Place in a glass container and incubate in room temperature for 5 hours. 

"And wallla, you get smooth tangy dairy less yogurt! I really like in my morning smoothies!"
-Jenny Chargualaf Coffman

Thanks Jenny, for this great recipe!

Isle of Berries Smoothie


Pick up an organic bag of frozen strawberries and blueberries at the Payless in Micronesia Mall or Simply Foods, buy bananas and papaya at a fruit stand or pick them straight from a tree, and substitute the coconut milk and water for fresh coconut flesh and water if you don't mind the extra effort. Delicious as is or put in the freezer for a short while for a fruit sorbet!

Clean Your House with Natural Products

I came across a fantastic article about using natural products to clean your house. I found some really good tips and time savers like reusing a foil ball to scrub your oven rack or oven with a bit of detergent. How can you go wrong?
