Creamy Vanilla Yoghurt - TM6 using Fermentation Mode



1 litre(s)

Creamy Vanilla Yoghurt

  • 1 litres Long Life Milk (Full Cream)
  • 150 grams Milk powder (full cream)
  • 100 grams cream
  • 50 grams white sugar
  • 15 grams Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 160-200 grams Starter Yoghurt

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Pour milk into Thermomix bowl and heat to 45•C (approx 5-8mins) on speed 3.

    2. Once it reaches 45•C add the milk powder, cream, sugar and vanilla bean paste.

    3. Cook for 3 minutes at 45•C on speed 3 to bring it back up to temperature and dissolve the milk powder.

    4. Add the starter yoghurt and cook again for 3 minutes at 45•C on speed 3.

    5. Place the white thermoserver (or any sealable container that will fit in the Varoma with the lid on) into the Varoma dish and pour the yoghurt mixture in. Rinse out the Thermomix bowl.

    6. Pour 1 litre of water into the Thermomix bowl and squeeze in the juice of half a lemon to reduce corrosion risk.

    7. Place the Varoma into position ensuring your yoghurt container has the lid on and then place the Varoma lid on top.

    8. Set the TM6 onto fermentation mode for minimum of 8 hours at 45•C (I leave mine anywhere between 8-12 hours overnight) and switch it on.

If making a double batch then double all the ingredients except the starter yoghurt where the quantity can stay the same.

I use Farmers Union Greek Yoghurt as my starter yoghurt as I like how it comes in a 4 pack so I'm not wasting a bigger container when only using 160-200g.

I'm not always perfectly precise with my measurements (as you may have noticed if you've watched my Facebook videos making yoghurt and many other gluten free goodies lol) so don't stress if things are slightly out, I haven't had a failure yet and have full confidence in you!

You can use fresh milk if you prefer, both work but long life milk works out cheap and easy.

I often end up leaving mine to ferment for longer and I've never been worried about this but if you are concerned make sure you start it late so the finishing time coincides with you waking up. I've left mine for many more hours and have never had spoiled yoghurt.

I have tried the yoghurts that have the fruit compote/coulis fermented in with the yoghurt but hubby felt that it tasted a bit weird this way (although looks incredible, see my photos for proof!) so I have since always made the compote separately and everyone adds their own when serving.

I've read that yoghurt can last several weeks in the fridge but we don't tend to like it after around 7-10 days and if there is any left after this time I usually make it into icy poles, frozen yoghurt bites, frozen yoghurt bark or anything else!! The kids are in heaven and I know they are way healthier than store bought (and always gluten free!)
