You can flavor your yogurt naturally by adding a about ⅓ cup of whipped coconut milk to ¾ cup to your home made yogurt, it is really good! You will need: A medium size pot A whisk a small bowl
Ingredients
  • 1 packet of freeze dried cultures
  • 1 quart (one liter) of organic, grass fed pasteurized or unpasteurized milk (preferred)
  • And of course a yogurt maker, or a one quart mason jar if you haven’t bought your yogurt maker yet.
Instructions
  1. Bring the milk to about 180 F (just below the boiling point). It is very important to heat the milk very gently, use the lowest heat setting on your stove. It will take about 40 minutes to reach 180 degrees.
  2. Cool the milk to room temperature, about 110 F
  3. Scoop about a cup of the milk and place in a bowl, add your starter packet, and mix thoroughly using your whisk.
  4. Add this mixture to the rest of the milk
  5. Transfer to your yogurt maker and incubate according to your yogurt maker and the instructions from the culture package that you bought (different types of yogurt have different incubating times), usually 8 hours.
  6. If you don’t have a yogurt maker, place the milk in a glass jar, cover and incubate for about 8 hours inside your oven with just the light on. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours before serving.
