Making yoghurt at home is easy, saves money and tastes great

Homemade yoghurt recipe


  • 750ml of raw milk – organic preferred, can be homogenised
  • 1+1/2 tbsp of natural yoghurt – organic, no additives like sugar, flavouring etc
  • 2 tbsp of milk powder – optional

How to make this delicious, healthy homemade yoghurt

  • Heat the milk until it just starts to froth or rise in the pot
  • Leave to cool for 20-25 minutes.
  • Skim the top
  • Add the yoghurt
  • Place in a sealed jar, wrap with a towel and sit on top of the hot water cylinder – or any other really warm place.
  • After about 6 hours – check thickness – leave longer for thicker consistency – the longer you leave the more tart it becomes.
  • Then – take off 1 1/2 tbsp for your next batch – use a jar, and place in the fridge.
If you like keep half for unflavoured yoghurt
  • To the other half add 2 tsp of vanilla extract, the best you can get
  • 1 tbsp of the best maple syrup or runny honey.
Put in the fridge.
Yummy by itself and even more delicious in smoothies.
