    Banana Cashew Yogurt Parfait - Comfy Belly

    Cashew banana yogurt using your favorite probiotic, from Gena Hamshaw.

    In search of a quick and easy dairy-free yogurt to boost your smoothies?  Don’t want any stuff besides yogurt in your yogurt?


    Gena Hamshaw has graciously agreed to share a recipe for dairy-free yogurt from her new book, Choosing Raw.

    If you’ve been avoiding yogurt because it’s either made from dairy, you’re avoiding additives in commercial dairy-free yogurt, or you’ve run out of homemade cultured yogurt, here’s “yogurt” that’s simple to make. All you need is your favorite probiotic powder or capsule and a food processor or high-speed blender.

    This is my favorite probiotic powder, but feel free to use any powder or empty a few probiotic capsules for this yogurt recipe.

    I know folks with sensitive digestive systems and active IBD may avoid raw food, however some raw foods, while not cooked, can be prepared to the point that they are easy to digest. Smoothies and this yogurt recipe are great examples of easy-to-digest raw food.

    As for the berries, you might want to avoid those if seeds are an issue. I just couldn’t resist since I’ve had an abundance of blackberries this season.

    I also added my latest favorite grain-free granola recipe. The pecans and pumpkin seeds give it a great crunch without being too hard on the teeth.

    To make the parfait, I suggest keeping the ingredients separate until you’re ready to combine them, especially if you like your granola crunchy. Or, at least combine the berries and yogurt in a container and add the granola when you’re ready to eat the parfait. Enjoy!

      I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for sharing all these amazing recipes so freely with others. I purchased your “Cooking for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet” book and nearly cried when I bit into my delicious grilled cheese sandwich made with the sandwich rounds. Bread was the missing link in my new diet and this helped immensely. And then tonight I discovered your website…it’s all fantastic. A big sincere thank you!!!

      How can they be adapted for a sugarless diet?

      Thanks, Judith.
