Homemade Yogurt

Making your own yogurt is so easy and all you need is a litre of whole milk (I like organic), and a couple tablespoons of yogurt. The end result is a beautiful creamy yogurt that tastes delicious plain, or can be jazzed up with some fruit and toppings!

  • 1 litre whole milk
  • 3 tbsp yogurt culture


  1. Pour 1 litre of milk into a pot over medium heat on the stove.
  2. Continuously stir the milk while it slowly heats, until the milk is simmering with a frothy top, but not boiling (approx. 180 degrees).
  3. Remove the pot from heat, and let sit until the milk cools to a warm room temperature (approx. 115 degrees).
  4. Pour half the milk into a glass container with the lid. Stir 3 tbsp. yogurt into the milk and combine well.
  5. Add the remaining milk and stir well. Close the jar with the lid and fully wrap it in towels to keep the mixture warm. (I like to use a thin tea towel, and a warmer hand towel for wrapping).
  6. Place the wrapped jar in a warm spot on your counter (I like to place it under a light) and let set for 8-12 hours.
  7. Remove the towels and refrigerate until you are ready to consume. The yogurt will last up to three weeks in the fridge.
