Oat milk yogurt was new to me until I came across it on Shin's Vegan Lovin' blog.
The only non-dairy yogurt I've had until now was soy yogurt. When I saw the recipe for oat milk yogurt on Shin's blog, I was intrigued and I had to try it. I usually make oat milk at home so I only had to add some lemon juice to it and leave it to rest for a day.
I am happy with the result, although it isn't as thick as yogurt. I think I need to use a thicker milk. I have another batch that I am leaving out for a few more days; I'll see how it turns out.
The taste is definitely very close to yogurt and I really like it.
Yesterday, I got a request from Boyfriendlovlie for a white cake with raisins. Now, who can refuse such a request?! So, I decided to use the yogurt in this cake since it was a bit too thin to eat as yogurt.
The cake turned out great! This yogurt definitely works well in cakes.
