coconut milk yogurt lactose intolerance recipe Weight loss weight Watchers

I finally got my coconut milk “yogurt” to solidify

I have been attempting to make coconut milk yogurt, but it split into layers and was liquid. I tried different brands of coconut milk and nothing was working. So, I altered the recipe by doubling the gelatin and adding chia seeds. It is a bit of a combo of yogurt and chia pudding. I find it a little bland and am trying to figure out what I can add. Let me know if you have any ideas.

If anyone wants my recipe

3 cans light coconut milk shaken
2 Tb gelatin
I Tb sugar
Probiotics (you can use a store bought yogurt to start. I used 2 lactobacillus sp. Probiotic tablets for this batch . I will use this yogurt for starting the next)
1tsp inulin
8 Tb chia seeds

Mix gelatin with some of the coconut milk and set aside for 3 minutes
Pour the rest of the coconut milk in a pot. Heat over medium heat. Add gelatin mixture and sugar. Whisk while heating. Do not boil. (I am sorry, I don’t know the temperature)
Reserve ¼ c and pour the rest into yogurt maker containers. I use 8 6oz containers
Let cool to about 105 F or less.
Add probiotics and inulin to reserved fluid and mix well
Stir one spoonful of probiotic mixture into each container.
Heat in yogurt maker at 105F for 24 hrs
When done remove from maker. Add 1 Tb chia seeds to each container
Refrigerate until firm.

If it is still liquid add another Tb chia seeds to each and chill.

Weight watchers discourages saturated fats, but I find fat filling. I may change my mind, but for now I am eating many of the same foods, but smaller portions. I was at a conference today and used all my daily points by noon, but I can have eggs and veggies for dinner which is not many points.
