Homemade Yoghurt

I love to make yoghurt at home. Here is a simple recipe you can try too. Do let me know how you get on in the comments, below.


1 litre whole milk

2 tbs of ‘live culture’ yoghurt


Heat the milk in a pan and bring to a boil. 

Transfer the milk in to a thermos or steel pot; you can also use a natural clay terracotta pot if you have one. I use this as it keeps the mixture warm to turn into yoghurt. 

Leave to cool until it is hand hot (approx. 46C)

Add the 2 tbs of yoghurt and mix well. Cover the pot and leave in a warm place for approx. 8-10 hours.

You could leave it to rest inside the oven on a very low heat. I just keep it overnight inside my microwave (turned off).
