How to make your own yoghurt...

Wednesday, June 2, 2010

Crockpot yoghurt

You will need:

71/2 cups milk (or just use 2litres if you can't be bothered measuring)
1/2 cup starter yoghurt (with live cultures)


Heat on low for 2 hours and 45 mins

Turn off crockpot without taking the lid off.

After 3 hours (to let the milk cool down to the right temperature), take out about 2 cups of the warm milk and put into a mixing bowl. You may need to get rid of the skin first!

Add 1/2 cup of starter yoghurt and mix the starter yoghurt and milk together with a whisk.

I used Cyclops Plain Organic originally, then every other time just put aside 1/2 cup of the yoghurt I made.

You can probably use any type of yoghurt you like, but just make sure it has live active cultures in it and is not vanilla flavoured.

Then put your mixed yoghurt back into the crockpot and mix well until it is totally combined with the rest of the milk.

Put lid back on and wrap in a thick bath towel. I put mine in the hot water cupboard, but it really doesn't matter too much.

Leave for 8-12hours.

Refrigerate for 3hours and then eat.

You can add so many different things to this recipe!

- Honey or sugar to sweeten -
- Passionfruit pulp -
- Fruit-dried or canned or fresh -
- vanilla essence (just remember to take out 1/2 cup first to start your next batch) -
