How To Make Your Own Yogurt At Home

Every kid loves yogurt. They can’t get enough of it. It’s yummy and a great source of protein, calcium and vitamins.

If you have trouble digesting dairy products, yogurt is easier on the stomach as it contains the ‘good for you’ kind of bacteria.

A daily serving helps keep colds at bay and two servings significantly reduce your chances of getting high blood pressure.

And because I left the best for last, yogurt causes your body to produce amino acids which burn fat so you need to include it in your diet! So without further ado, let’s whip up your own personal batch! Yaaaay!!!

You will need:

  • 1 liter of milk
  • 3 table spoons of sugar
  • 50 ml of plain yogurt
  • 1 heaped table spoon of milk powder
  • Flavor, nuts, fruit


Let’s make yogurt!

In a pan, boil the milk and simmer for 3 minutes. Leave the milk to cool to luke-warm temperature. Keep stirring occasionally to make sure that no cream forms on top of the milk. We want the cream in the milk.
When the milk is luke-warm, add the sugar, milk powder and plain yogurt and whisk thoroughly. The yogurt will act as your culture.

Tip: Don’t whisk too long such that the milk gets cold.

Sieve the milk and pour into a thermos. Close the thermos and leave to stand for 10 hours.

After leaving to stand for 10-12 hours, add the flavor of your choice, fruit, essence or cookies.
You now have lovely yogo ready to indulge in. Enjoy as a desert, for breakfast or as a random treat 🙂
