- 2000 grams full cream milk
- 100-150 grams caster sugar OR honey
- 150 grams Yoghurt - I prefer 5am Organic
- Weigh in milk and sugar into TM bowl - It will come up to the max fill line.
- Cook for 30 minutes/90 degrees/Speed 2.5. Place TM bowl in fridge until milk mixture is almost cool. NOTE: Transferring milk mixture to a plastic bowl will speed this process up. Usually 1-1.5 hours.
- When milk mixture is almost cool, place back into TM bowl. The 37 degree light should be OUT. If not, allow to cool for longer. If you don't allow it to cool below 37 degrees you will kill the live culture (yoghurt) when adding it and your yoghurt won't work.
- Place yoghurt into TM Bowl, warm for 10 minutes/37 degrees/Speed 2.5.
For the best results, use unhomogenised milk that is a good quality - look out for these when they're reduced too!
To get super thick yoghurt you need to cool the milk quickly - the quicker it cools, the thicker it will be. a bowl half filled with ice then another bowl on top of that with the hot milk mix is grwat, then into the fridge.
Place milk mixture into Thermoserver immediately, with the Thermoserver base on, then wrap in a large towel**.
For best results, leave 10-12 hours in a warm place.
**I put my Thermoserver on top of my wifi modem for the night in Winter and cooler nights as it is slightly warm to the touch. DVD players/Set top boxes/Stereos/Austar boxes may also be a warm spot! In Summer I just leave on the kitchen bench with a towel draped over it.
I have also successfully used Jalna and Tamar Valley kids Greek yoghurts for starters.
I usually start this at abnout 5:30pm which means I'm putting my yoghurt 'to bed' as I go to bed! Then it's ready in the morning. OR start in the morning, it's finished by the time you get home and can cool in the fridge overnight for eating the next day.
The new 2.6L Thermoservers are perfect for this double batch but it can be carefully made in the 2.2L!
DON'T FORGET to keep 150g of the yoghurt for your next batch!
Parenting tip - your kids may be used to a LOT more sugar in their yoghurt. You may find you need to put up to 250g in to start with, then gradually wean them off a little bit each time you make a batch!
Update: I have begun making this with 80-100g honey and it's divine!
I add fruit or honey after the yoghurt has set.
