Bananas about yoghurt

    4 hours 45 min

    To be totally honest, I didn't think this recipe was going to turn out :-) I have never added fruit to the ingredients before adding them to my yoghurt maker before. When I tasted it, it was really thick, creamy and delicious! Very healthy, and what kid doesn't love bananas! A great way to get more fruit into your kids!!

    1. Heat milk until just before boiling. Allow to cool until luke warm and remove skin.

    3. Strain through a coffee filter to remove the whey.
    4. Refrigerate overnight - this will allow the yoghurt to thicken further. Serve.

    This is my recipe, and I heat the milk in the microwave until it's just about to boil, then all all ingredients to the yogurt maker and stir thoroughly. I then set the yogurt maker for 4 hours. Once the 4 hours is up, I always end up with loads of whey, which, if left in the yogurt, will make the yogurt stringy if you just mix it all in. I always strain the yogurt through a coffee filter to remove the whey, then pour into a bowl, cover and refrigerate over night. I always end up with really thick, creamy yogurt that is delicious. You can leave the yogurt for longer than 4 hours - up to 12 hours (4 is the minimum though)but I have never noticed a difference in taste for leaving it longer. Therefore to save time (and electricity!) I generally only leave my yogurt maker on for 4 hours.  -  15 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a great recipe. I have made it mixing 2% milk with either skim or 1% and it comes out just as well. It is not a thick yogurt but very good nonetheless. (I don't straign the whey - more nutrients)  -  29 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I didn't like the flavor of this. The texture was fine, but I expected more banana flavor, but it tasted to me like plain yogurt with a too heavy taste of vanilla and not much banana. I think a tinge more sweetness would really help.  -  31 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
