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
  • Towels
  • Bowl
  • Spoon
  • 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.

Step 1

Pour 1.5 liters of full-fat milk inside your pot and let it boil.

Step 2

Make sure to stir the milk from time to time so it doesn’t stick to the bottom.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

Transfer the milk to a container. You can use any kind of container.

Step 5

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.

Step 6

Once it’s well mixed, pour the mixture inside the container and mix it as well.

Step 7

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.

Step 8

After waiting the suggested amount of time, the yogurt is ready and you can now eat it and store it in the fridge.
