Easy Homemade Yogurt

Yesterday, I made my yogurt the lazy way.
I knew my kitchen would be fairly warm for a big portion of the day so I simply took my old, clean, applesauce jar and scooped in my remnant yogurt; about 1/2 cup, and some powdered milk-hmm- didn't measure but probably about 1/3 cup--and filled my jar the rest of the way up with milk. I started it early morning, left it on the stove, and by bedtime--YOGURT!
We used it today for blueberry-mango smoothies!

Thanks for sharing! This is a recipe everyone needs now that a decent yogurt is over $0.60 a serving!! With 2 boys and a husband who loves it and would eat it all day if I'd let them, that's just too much. I'm going to try this out.

Hi again Donna,
I have 2 questions for you - do you think this method is possible to do with soy milk (liquid)instead?

Also, I'd love to know how you keep your pics so small when you click on them. Could you stop and let me know if you can? Thank you.

To answer your question about pictures; I resize them before I post them. I use a program on my PC called Micorsoft Picture It. There's a tab in there that says 'format' and you can adjust the size. I don't always do that , usually just if I blurred the pic a bit. (The bigger the pic the more blurred it can get, the smaller the pic- the more focused it looks.)

The yogurt: it will work with soy but the consistency will be different. You may want to use milk powder, it will help thicken.

BTW, I use 1% milk. The higher the fat, the thicker the yogurt often times. But I have good results with the 1% by adding the fat-free powdered milk.

Hope that helps!:-)I would love to see your results!!!
