Homemade yoghurt

Posted on December 24th, 2015


Yoghurt, ah my dear yoghurt. I really do love yoghurt. Over the past year and a half yoghurt has become a staple part of my diet and will almost always appear at my breakfast table. Since my family uses so much yoghurt I thought I’d try my hand at making some of my own.

My mom had recently bought a wonderbag; a non-electric, portable slow-cooker which keeps food warm for up to 8 hours without the use of any electricity. It’s actually quite an amazing invention and is doing wonders in helping reduce our carbon footprint. Anyway, it came with a recipe book and one of the recipes was yoghurt. I gave it a go and the first batch was amazing! It was delicious and I just couldn’t believe I’d made it myself. The next time I tried to make it it didn’t work out so well. I am currently on the scout for a new and improved recipe but I thought I’d share this attempt with you and plus, the pictures looked great! IMG_7630

Heat 4 cups of milk  in a pot on the stove for about 10 minutes. Stir in 4 tablespoons of yoghurt from the previous batch. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for about 5 minutes. Cover and place in the wonderbag. Allow to culture for 10-12 hours. Place in the fridge to thicken.

This yummy yoghurt is best topped with fresh strawberries, honey and some homemade muesli.
