How to Make Homemade Yogurt
Homemade yogurts are delicious and creamy and are much healthier than the store-bought ones. 5-Minute Crafts will show you how easy it is to make your own if you follow the right steps.
What you will need:
- 1.5 liters of full-fat milk
- Small pot
- 1 tbsp of store-bought yogurt
Note: To make your first homemade yogurt from scratch you will need a store-bought yogurt, but after that you can always save a batch of the previous homemade yogurt to make a new one.
Pour 1.5 liters of full-fat milk inside your pot and let it boil.
Make sure to stir the milk from time to time so it doesn’t stick to the bottom.
When the milk reaches its boiling point, turn off the stove and let the milk cool until it reaches a temperature between 108-112ºF.
Note: If you don’t have a thermometer, you can check the temperature with your finger — it’s at the right temperature when your finger just starts to tolerate the heat.
Transfer the milk to a container. You can use any kind of container.
Now, put a tablespoon of store bought yogurt in a bowl and mix it with around 4 tablespoons of the milk that’s inside the container.
Once it’s well mixed, pour the mixture inside the container and mix it as well.
Close the lid and cover the container properly with towels. It should be kept warm at around 95-105ºF. Leave the yogurt like this, unopened for around 8 to 10 hours.
After waiting the suggested amount of time, the yogurt is ready and you can now eat it and store it in the fridge.
