My kids adore taking fresh fruit, a little sweetener, and some Greek yogurt and whirring it all together with my immersion blender
to make a custom smoothie. However, all that Greek yogurt, while healthy, was driving up my food bill!
Enter Pinterest and the recipe I found to make what I call Dead Easy Greek Yogurt. Honestly, after all the recipes that I have looked at for homemade yogurt, I was a little bit shocked to see how simple this one is.
Put 1 gallon milk (any kind, but preferably not super-pasteurized) in a large crock pot. Add 2-3 cups of dry powdered milk and stir to combine. Put lid on and heat milk to 180 degrees Farenheit. Turn off heat and let cool to about 110-115 degrees.
Ladle some of the warm milk into a container and add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt. Stir until smooth. Add to crockpot with other milk and stir gently and thoroughly.
Put in containers and place in your oven…with only the light on and leave it for 8-12 hours to incubate.
When you remove it, place it in the refrigerator and enjoy as soon as it is thoroughly chilled.
Have you ever made homemade yogurt?
