Homemade Yogurt


Natural yoghurt
1 tbsp
1 pint

Making yummy homemade yogurt is really quite easy! What you need to have is a little bit of yogurt to start with and off you. You can use skimmed milk or full fat. The more fat in the milk the more creamier your yogurt.

Boil the milk and let it cool down to luke warm. In a glass bowl put the tablespoon of yogurt and whisk slightly add the lukewarm milk and whisk either with a hand whisk or electric until the top foams. Place in a warm place perhaps an airing cupboard or even in the microwave once placed do not disturb otherwise it won't set. Leave either overnight or a good few hours and you will have yummy yogurt! If it doesn't set don't despair stick it in the microwave for about 30/40 seconds and leave another couple of hours.

Generally people make it last thing at night and leave overnight or if in the summer first thing in the morning before work so when they come back its ready!

If you wish you can add fruit or nuts to make a delicious dessert.
