I am cooking up my 3rd batch of home made yogurt. This is becoming a weekly thing, as I eat it all up within one week. My first batch was about the consistency of Yoplait. Not bad, but I knew I could do better.
In the 2nd batch I added 1 cup of powdered milk and used whole milk rather than 1%. I let it warm for about 20 minutes longer and let it set overnight. The consistency is better, but not what I want yet.
Today I am trying it once again, but have let the milk (2%) warm for about 4 hours and then let it cool for an equal amount of time. I am now allowing it to culture in a warm spot overnight. I will then strain out the whey and 'voilla' Greek yogurt! I hope.
I have been enjoying 2 servings of yogurt daily flavored with Splenda and vanilla. I have added whatever fruit I have on hand. This week that is fresh blueberries. Last week it was canned peaches. I have several recipes for different flavors, but I'm waiting to try them as they sound more like desserts than a protein serving. I will update you when I do try them, so look forward to hearing about Chocolate pudding yogurt, Pumpkin Pie yogurt, etc. Should be interesting.
So I hope you are being inspired to make some yogurt. It's easy enough and lots of fun.
