It's really nice, but I used half as much water as was recommended, and it still came out quite runny

Way too much water! It's not a smoothie bowl, it's just a smoothie. Will have the water quantity next time.

Good call with the coconut milk, this ones a traditional recipe, also turmeric helps with inflammation, this is great to take before bed when you feel bloated :)

This sounds good, I'm going to try it. So hard to find good GF recipes. I always make a Chia seed with strawberry and passionfruit yoghurt, it's amazing, try it here... https://theeighthours.wordpress.com/2015/03/14/strawberry-chia-seeded-yoghurt/

Very quick to make but would recommend that you use less water, or add the water as you go along until you get the desired consistency, as this made a huge quantity which was quite watery. Enjoyed the taste but would make it thicker next time.

A pleasant surprise! Couldn't get coconut milk yoghurt so used 300ml coconut water as part of the water inclusion. The overall taste was something like unsweetened cake batter thanks I guess to the cinnamon with just a slightly savoury hint from the turmeric.
