Homemade yogurt that is incredibly easy to make. No need to boil the milk beforehand. No special equipment needed! It is the way I have been making yogurt for years.

  • 2 cups whole dried milk
  • 1 cup yogurt with live and active cultures
  • 5 cups warm water (see Note 1)
  1. In a plastic bowl, mix milk and a quarter cup of warm water to be smooth. Add yogurt and whisk together until smooth. Add the rest of the water and mix well. 

  2. Cover the bowl, place in a warm place and wrap with a blanket. Let it stay in a warm place for about 8 hours until the yogurt sets. Avoid opening the bowl to check during these 8 hours. After that, your yogurt should be thick and ready to eat. 
  3. Refrigerate and serve as needed. I love sweetening it with honey and vanilla extract then serving with fruits and granola for breakfast. So good!
Recipe Notes

1. Your water should be 115 degrees Fahrenheit if you choose to use a thermometer. However, I never use a thermometer for the water. I just dip a finger in it and ensure that it is just slightly warm to the touch.

2. For lighter drinkable yogurt, use 2 cups more water in this recipe.
