This sounds really good. I've never used or even seen a yogurt machine before, sounds like an interesting thing to own. I like soy yogurt, but that's all I can get around here that's vegan. No coconut yogurt for me...
How much are yogurt machines? If it works will you let us know? I'm allergic to soya milk/yogurt and would love to make rice/coconut yogurt for myself, as you can't buy them in the uK (or if you can, I've never seen it!).
I'd be more excited about getting an ice cream maker myself.
I looove soy ice cream, and really want to try making some cashew ice cream sometime (which I don't think you even need an ice cream maker for, actually). Mmm, need to remember to look for raw cashews next time I'm shopping.
A yogurt maker warms the liquid in order to allow the good bacteria to grow in it -- a frozen yogurt maker or ice cream maker obviously wouldn't work for that purpose. But, once you have the yogurt, you could certainly use it to make frozen goodies.
You don't need a yogurt maker to make yogurt - there are lots of methods for keeping the liquid warm: a cooler with a heating pad, a thermos, a warmed crockpot (turned off) wrapped in towels, in the oven with the light on, etc.
I haven't seen any that weren't, but it is possible. I'd check ingredients.
So Delicious is vegan-http://sodeliciousdairyfree.com/products/cultured-coconut-milk
Trader Joes did have a cultured coconut yogurt- but I'm not sure if they still do. I'm not a fan, but I always check to see if they got there soy yogurt back and I haven't noticed coconut yogurt lately.
