Learn How to Make Homemade Yogurt
Hi Sweet Friends,
When there are so many choices of yogurt at the grocery store, many of which are reasonably priced, why would you ever want to make homemade yogurt?
The fresher the better
Well, it is still more thrifty than anything you can buy from the store—but more importantly—fresh homemade yogurt will be teaming with many more probiotics than those sitting on the shelves at the grocery store! And my recipe couldn’t be easier. All you need is a bowl. No machine required!
Use whole milk for the creamiest yogurt
You can make homemade yogurt as rich and creamy as you like, especially if you use whole milk. And you can also control the level of tartness that you like. Less tart—culture it for a shorter time. More tart—culture it for a longer time. It’s all quite easy. And the nice thing about homemade yogurt is that it’s very forgiving. So don’t worry. It’s hard to mess up. You can do this! 🙂
In my YouTube video above, I walk you step-by-step through the process of how to make homemade yogurt. So give it a try today. You can do this!
