    Default Substitution for whey?

    I have a recipe for a probiotic lemonade but it calls for whey from whole milk yogurt. A google search turned up no reasonable substitutions. any suggestions to make a probiotic lemonade that's vegan?

    Just make it without the whey, it's not like probiotics do anything.

    You could make it from Probiotic soya yoghurt, there are instructions here for dairy yoghurt which would probably work for soya yoghurt as well

    Probiotics just lie around the house not doing anything.

    I assume nearly any fermented product with live culture can be considered pro-biotic.
    Whey is milk-sugar rich and wee beasties love it: sub with some other dab of sweetener.

    Pre-biotic means food for wee beasties already nesting in the gut: they must be gourmets because they love onion and artichoke! Okay, they go for a variety of inulin rich foods.

    Does the recipe specify culturing time and temp? I reckon slightly fizzy means done: don't want the beasties choking on their own excrement now do we?

    Let us know how the brew does

    Probiotiocs is the general public marketing version of stool transplant: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fecal_bacteriotherapy

    Instead of putting another persons poop up your bum they refined it, grown it in a lab, and then make you eat it. Yum

    Stool transplants is actually a promising science, eating what the marketing department came up with not so much.

    For probiotics I use Co-Yo, which is a 100% vegan coconut milk yoghurt (although I don't know exactly how one would extract it for use in the lemonade)...

    I'm not sure if they sell in the USA, but I found this if it's any good? http://www.sodeliciousdairyfree.com/...d-coconut-milk
