      Hi Jamie! We haven’t used the non-capsule kind before but would say that using the amount in one serving is probably a good place to start. Since one capsule is one serving, we’d guess that whatever amount the company puts on the package of the loose powdered versions as one serving would have similar effects on the coconut milk! Will you let us know how much you end up using and how it turns out?

    This sounds like an interesting trail mix recipe. I often make trail mix, not just for hiking but to have a good available snack any time between meals. Though I always make traditional trail mixes with a variety of nuts, dried fruits and chocolate I do like popcorn and the spicy trail mix sounds like it would a great additional recipe to try.
    It is nice to have a couple versions of trail mix handy in your cupboard or desk so that you know you have a quick healthy snack whenever you need one so I will add this version to the cupboard.

    Ahhh, the kitchen, best place to hang out anyway so may as well teach the kids how to cook. It is an ideal place to talk and teach kids about colors, numbers, measuring, cooking and healthy eating. It will certainly come in handy as the kids grow up and become more independent and start cooking for themselves.

    It warms my heart to hear someone say, yes, take your kids to the grocery store with you. Some articles on streamlining shopping say go alone. It’s quicker and easier. Maybe so, but what a wonderful opportunity we are missing when we don’t include our children in making the list and shopping for the items. Kids learn how to shop and how to select healthy, good tasting foods. It pulls them into the process of putting good food on the table right from the first step. Great interview!

    This was a great interview. I love taking my kids to the store because they love helping to pick what we eat. Of course, there is a lot of saying no…but input is always helpful. I started having my kids make their own lunches for school this year so they can be in charge of what they eat (within reason of course.) I also agree with just keep trying, even if they don’t like something. My oldest daughter has really started to embrace spicy food and that opens up whole new avenues of cooking!

      Hi! Sometimes it doesn’t thicken up until you put it in the fridge and some batches just don’t thicken. The type of probiotic can make a difference, as can the temperature/time of year. We’ve had the best results with VSL #3 probiotic and when we make batches from a previous batch (i.e. instead of using a new probiotic capsule we stir 1/4 cup of a previous batch of yogurt into the new jar of coconut milk) we get the thickest yogurt. We’d recommend trying to put it in the fridge and seeing if it thickens a bit and how the flavor is. If the flavor is good, you might try using 1/4 cup of that yogurt to make your next batch. If the flavor is off, you might try a different probiotic. Keep us posted…and good luck!

      It has a really smooth coffee taste with a hint of caramel. The tall usually comes with 3 pumps of syrup so you can adjust to your taste preferences too. We usually go with 2 pumps instead of the 3! Can’t wait to hear what you think!

      You can substitute this yogurt in ounce for ounce for dairy yogurt in most recipes. It’s great as a substitute for creamy dressings like Ranch, etc. When using it in sauces, it does thin out a bit once it’s heated, but definitely adds creaminess and body to sauces. We’d love to hear what sauces/dressing recipes you try it in! We also love using it in baking in place of dairy yogurt. We’ve tried it in scone recipes and it’s GREAT!

    I’m trying to gauge the true nutritional content of the egg bites, specifically carbs. However, to do this you need to know not only the grams of carbs in the egg bites, but the serving size they measured, so you can translate those numbers into a percentage. (Is it 5% carb? 20%? 50%?) However, the serving size given is obviously wrong. First, they give it in fluid ounces, which is weird in itself. But worse, they say the serving is 130 fluid ounces. Um, that’s about 4 quarts! No, I’m sorry, those little egg bites were not 4 quarts! 😀 How can we find out the true serving size to compare to the nutritional contents? Maybe you good folks could find out for us?

    By the way, I just happened to stumble into a Starbucks on Jan. 10, the day of the debut. I had the Bacon and Gruyere egg bites. They were delicious!

        Well, I just googled for it again and they appear to have discovered and corrected the error. I found a nutrition panel this time that says 130 grams (not fluid ounces). That makes much more sense! (And that means the 9g of carbs represents about 7%. More than I’d like in my low carb diet, but perhaps okay for an occasional treat.)

      Hi! Yum — the culinary coconut milk should be able to be used as-is as long as it’s not coconut cream. We’d try it as-is first and see how the yogurt turns out (it will probably be nice and thick and delicious). If the yogurt is thicker than you’d like it to be, you can stir in a little water or coconut water after it’s already cultured. Will you let us know how it turns out?

    What would you consider room temperature to be for the yogurt to sit in? Mine is still watery after two 24 hour periods. Also, it has a grainy taste. Help!

      Hello! Let’s start trouble shooting! Honestly, we have some batches that just don’t turn out as great as others — that happens with fermentation. But, it sounds like yours might benefit from heading into the fridge (which should thicken it up). Was the flavor good? If the flavor is nice and sour like yogurt, try sticking it in the fridge and seeing if it thickens. We’ve found that graininess is usually a variable of the coconut milk. Our estimate of room temp is anywhere from 70-85 degrees, depending on season. The other variable is the probiotic. We’ve definitely found that the VSL #3 probiotic makes a thicker yogurt but we’re often surprised at how much it can thicken up in the fridge, too. Hope this helps. Will you keep us posted?

    I have gotten to the stage of having my yogurt in the fridge for about 24 hours now and it’s still runny. Is there anything I can do to salvage this or, do I just start over with a new can of coconut milk and probiotics?

      Hi! A runny texture doesn’t necessarily mean the batch didn’t work — it could just be that because it’s summer it stayed a little runnier. If the flavor is good, then you can use it like a European style yogurt/kefir. If the flavor is off, then something must have thrown the bacterial balance off (it happens!). We had a batch recently that turned out a little runnier than usual but still had good flavor! Keep us posted?

    I’ve never had coconut yogurt before and I can’t buy it where I live. So I’m not sure if it’s off or not. It tastes something like sour cream. It doesn’t taste like rancid milk smells. So hopefully that’s a good sign lol. I’m going to try again and what my luck brings:). Thank you for responding!!

      If it tastes like sour cream that sounds right! It should be a sour yet smooth flavor. Definitely don’t want it to taste like rancid milk smells so that’s a good sign that it doesn’t! 😉 Keep us posted on batch #2!!

      Hi! You can definitely use this plan but you’d want to double the amount of food in each snack or increase the portion of protein at lunch and dinner by 50%. We don’t have another cookbook other than Healthy, Happy Pregnancy Cookbook (though those recipes are great for everyone!). We’d recommend eatingwell.com and cookinglight.com as great places to start and Ellie Krieger has a few really great cookbooks, too.

    All four of the recipes using plain yogurt look very good, especially the cinnamon roasted banana. I use plain yogurt on baked sweet potatoes in lieu of butter or sour cream.

      The roasted banana is one of our favorites because it changes the flavor of the banana to a more caramel-like flavor! We love your idea to use plain yogurt on baked sweet potatoes — that sounds delicious!

    I went to starbucks yesterday and saw these egg bites. I asked if they had bread in them at all because I’m allergic to gluten. The lady insisted that they did because they “looked like it.” To my response “not really but is there a way to check?” While they unhappily looked in their binder I googled it and found your site faster than they could find the info which they couldn’t so thank you for letting me know! It’s sad when the employees don’t even know what’s in their own food lol.

      We’re glad our post helped to clarify the ingredients and we totally agree with you — it would be great if employees got some training about ingredients, since so many customers have these same questions regarding what’s in each dish they offer and it would be a shame to dissuade someone from ordering something they could eat or tell them something was safe for them if it really contained an allergen! Did you end up getting the egg bites??

      Awesome! We are so happy you like this recipe…it’s a staple in our fridges, too! We actually just made a double batch and it turned out great. Used a larger jar and two cans of milk and 3 probiotic capsules. You could probably do it with one capsule, too, it would just take a bit longer to culture. We tasted it every 6 hours after the first day and stuck it in the fridge when the flavor was sour enough. Ours took about 2 days total, but it will definitely vary depending on temperature and probiotic. Let us know how it goes!
