Homemade Yogurt Recipe

A couple weeks ago Susan asked how to make yogurt in a crockpot. Now Desi wants to share her fantastic recipe with all of you!...

Hi Susan,

Here is the recipe I use:


7 cups water
2-1/2 cups non-instant powdered milk
1/2 cup plain yogurt (with live cultures) or amount specified on an envelope of Lactobacillus acidophilus

In a large saucepan, combine water and milk powder. Stir until powder is dissolved. Heat to 180-200 degrees F. (This makes the yogurt texture better). Cool milk to 105-110 degrees. Remove milk film from top of milk. Combine about 1/3 cup of cooled milk and 1/2 cup yogurt. Stir well. Pour yogurt into cooled milk. Stir well. Incubate.

I use straight powdered milk so I can rotate my food storage. I haven't tried soy milk, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. As long as it has sugar (carbohydrates) to ferment, it should feed the yeast. I'd try a minimized batch and see if it sets up to your liking. That way, you won't waste a lot of milk if it doesn't work.

You're going to LOVE the thermos method!! Just make sure it still holds warmth. Pour in some water (heated to 110-degrees). Cover and let it set for a few hours. Check it to see if it still is warm. That should give you an idea if it will be able to incubate the yogurt.
