Crockpot Yogurt

  • 8 C  milk (I used fat free) (Pasteurized is ok but NOT ultra-pasteurized)
  • 1/2 C plain yogurt with live cultures
  • 1/2 C of powdered milk
  • vanilla
  • 4 T. honey

  1. Put 8 C milk in crockpot on low for 2.5 hours.  
  2. Unplug crockpot.  Let milk sit for 3 hours. 
  3. Scoop 2 cups of the warm milk into a small bowl and add: the live active-culture yogurt, powdered milk, vanilla and honey.  
  4. Wisk together and pour into crockpot.  Stir. 
  5. Put lid on crockpot and cover with a heavy bath towel to insulate. Let sit for 8 hours. 
  6. Save 1/2 C for the next batch.
  7. Blend in fruit to taste. 
This recipe is from here:

I added the powdered milk, vanilla and honey instead of the fruit called for at the suggestion of a commenter who said the fruit (and maybe the fat free milk) made it harder to solidify.  They suggested adding plain gelatin instead of the powdered milk, but I didn't have that on hand.  Save 1/2 cup to use in starting the next batch.

The consistency is great and I like the flavor.  Fruit can be added per serving.  I had it this morning over frozen berries.  My dh eats a lot of yogurt--so much that I can't keep enough in the house.  Hopefully this will help!

It's very good. Great to have on hand.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
