Homemade natural yogurt

    6 hours 15 min

    Natural yogurt, without added sugar or preservatives, is quite easy to make at home! After you get the hang of it, you can use a few tablespoons from one batch to start another.

    Ingredients
    Makes: 1 litre of yoghurt

    • 150g of natural yogurt with active cultures
    • 1L of full fat milk (see note)

    Method
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Extra time:6hr resting  ›  Ready in:6hr15min 

    1. Bring the yogurt to room temperature - this will prevent it cooling down the milk too quickly.
    2. Heat the milk to a temperature of 40 to 45 C.
    3. Add natural yogurt ; stir and until thoroughly mixed.
    4. Pour the mixture into a thermos flask, yogurt maker or a large bowl, covered with a tea towel to keep it warm; set it in a warm place for at least 6 to 8 hours.
    5. After 6 to 8 hours, you can split the yogurt up into smaller portion-sized containers; store in the fridge.

    Note:

    Do not use UHT milk. Fresh pasteurised milk is fine.

    Tip:

    If the yogurt is not thick enough, it might mean that the milk was too hot when mixed with yogurt or the temperature was too low during the resting time (6-8 hrs). It could also be due to the yogurt starter - try using a different brand that has more live cultures.
