Raw cheesemaking with coconut milk is becoming very popular with health-conscious people who want to enjoy great tasting food without all the harmful chemicals. In fact, health experts advise people who wish to eat raw or semi-raw foods to take a step further and add at least some raw milk in their diet. Some recipes call for soy milk, but you will find many others that call for cow’s or goat’s milk, coconut milk, rice milk or evaporated coconut oil.

Many people wonder what the benefits of raw cheese making are. Of course it is great for the health of the cheesemaker, but there are other benefits of raw cheesemaking, too. When you prepare your own cheeses, it allows you the freedom to make them however you want. Raw cheesemakers can choose to make soft cheeses like brie or even hard cheeses like parmesan, which have a firmer texture. You can also use herbs and spices to make great tasting sauces for your cheese and it can be used as a marinade, instead of additional salt.

Another way to enjoy the health benefits of raw cheese is to make yogurt. Just add one cup of raw milk and four tablespoons of nonfat yogurt to a pot or pan full of water. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring often, until the milk has curdled. Remove from heat and let cool.

The versatility of this cheese product goes further than sandwiches and breads. You can also use it in any number of recipes that call for a cheese sauce. For example, you can make creamy tomato soup with a cream cheese base by using Romano or sharp cheddar. You can add it to vegetable dishes or use it as a vinaigrette for grilled meat. You can make a pesto sauce for chicken or fish. It can even be sprinkled over baked potatoes for a delicious and nutritious baked potato topping.

Another great way to enjoy the nutritional benefits of raw cheeses is to make yogurt raw. The best thing about making it in this manner is that you don’t have to wait for the curds to be at room temperature. You can put the yogurt into a strainer and that is all. You can then let the curds go on the counter to cool before using it in a recipe. This is an easy way to enjoy creamy yogurts while still learning how to make them at home.
