I've been making my own yogurt for the last couple of months and decided it was time to share. This is such an easy thing to make and it's a lot cheaper than buying those tiny containers of yogurt at the grocery store. The nice part is that you know exactly what you're eating. It is plain yogurt so you still have to add whatever kind of flavor you want but that's the fun part.
1. Pour a 1 liter container of milk (whole, low fat or fat free) into a pot and bring it to a boil.
2. Allow it to cool until you can just touch it but not completely cool (about 125 degrees)
3. Pour into a container (with a tight fitting lid) and add 4 teaspoons of plain, live culture yogurt
4. Put lid on container and leave in a dark cabinet for 5-6 hours (longer if it's a cold day)
5. Refrigerate and enjoy
I enjoy a bowl with some fresh fruit, a drizzle of honey and some granola.
Oh, and a little tip - I have forgotten about the yogurt a couple times and left it out overnight. Now I set a reminder on my phone to ping me and remind me to take it out of the cabinet and stick in the fridge when it's done.
