Double Batch of Yoghurt


Print:
4

Ingredients

2 litre(s)

Double Batch of Yoghurt

  • 2000 grams full cream milk
  • 100-150 grams caster sugar OR honey
  • 150 grams Yoghurt - I prefer 5am Organic

Recipe's preparation

  1. Weigh in milk and sugar into TM bowl - It will come up to the max fill line.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Place yoghurt into TM Bowl, warm for 10 minutes/37 degrees/Speed 2.5.
  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.

Tip

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.

    I have tried a few different yoghurt recipes since first getting my Thermomix but I never liked the texture or taste of any of them. This one is the BEST!! So easy to follow and everything about this yoghurt is perfect!!

  • I am SO impressed with this recipe! I went through...

    Submitted by digibron on 23. March 2017 - 18:47.

    I am SO impressed with this recipe! I went through a tmx yoghurt making phase about 2 years ago and tried lots of different recipes, variations, research and tweaks on the quest for the perfect recipe. In the end I cobbled together a formula that worked pretty well, but it used UHT milk and powder and eventually I stopped making it. This recipe was recently recommended on a facebook group I'm in and I'll admit I was skeptical about the lack of powder, but I tried it last night and it was a BIG success!

    I have a TM31 with a 2.2L thermoserver and they were both pretty full, but it was doable. I used 100g sugar which is lovely but I might reduce it next time. I used Farmers Union full fat Greek yoghurt for my starter and 2L of organic milk I scored on sale. Love that it's such a large quantity - I think that's half the reason I stopped making it last time, I was just spending too much time on it, but this will last longer.

    One extra thing I did from my previous yoghurt making days was to preheat the thermoserver with boiling water during the 12min part with a gel heatpack in the water. Once the 12 mins is up I drain the water, fill the thermoserver with the milk mixture and pop the heatpack on top of the thermoserver lid before wrapping it in a towel to keep it warm overnight. In the morning I put it straight into the fridge (still in the thermoserver) without peeking. That evening I decant it into other containers. (I've found this means less risk of the yoghurt turning runny.)

    One question: in the ingredients & tips it says you can use honey instead of sugar, but then it says to stir the honey in after. Could you also use honey during the cooking process?

    Thanks for the great recipe!

    When you add fruit do you find it losses it's thickness. Also when adding fruit do you just chop by hand or blend in the thermo? thanks.

    Hi there, absolutely not! You may need to check your scales? The TM5 is 2.2L capacity at maximum but your photo shows you've gone way above maximum. It's only 2L that you add in. The only other thing I can think of is that you put your scales on, then took your kid off, which would have made your scales sit at about -275g.

    Hi, great recipe thanks. Unfortunately after 12hrs my yoghurt hasn't set. Is this because it was not warm enough perhaps? Is there anything I can use it for now? Freeze and use as milk sub in baking maybe?

  • I've made this recipe at

    Submitted by Twice as Nice on 16. August 2015 - 11:01.

    I've made this recipe at least a dozen times now without a single fail. It is thick and creamy every time. I don't include any sugar. In my opinion though this recipe overfills the TM31 bowl. The first few times I made it a small amount of milk leaked from the bowl and the machine would make a strange squeaking sound. When opening the lid of the bowl after the last step the mixture would always be above the maximum line because it had frothed up and thickened a bit with the yogurt added. I now make this recipe with 1600g of milk instead and when I open it on the final step the mixture is exactly on the maximum/2L line.

    Submitted by Chenoa on 27. June 2015 - 23:04.

    Thanks Clara! Great feedback. Just remember with this yoghurt you don't need milk powder! It's a beautifully thick and creamy one. Milk powder has all sorts of icky things in it, hence why I created this recipe. I didn't want to use one of the ones floating around that added milk powder. It's all in the heating of the milk beforehand tmrc_emoticons.) enjoy!

    This was really great. I onlyy did half the amount so i could store the yoghurt in my easiyo container to save fridge space! I used 70 grams of sugar and also added in some milk powder (half cup) to help with the setting and thickness. I put it in the thermoserve, wrapped in a blanket at around 8pm, then put in the fridge this morning at 7am. Left it to chill during the day and it was lovely.

    Submitted by Chenoa on 10. March 2015 - 23:28.

    If you use lactose free milk you will need the sugar. The yoghurt making process needs sugar, so with lactose free you have no sugar. Try just 80g next time and it will make a huge difference

    Submitted by Jazwa on 10. March 2015 - 12:33.

    I get amazing results with this recipe when I start with a fresh batch of culture (small tub of jalna Greek) but I've had mixed results as I continue to remake the yoghurt from my own.  It may be because sometimes I get impatient and open the thermoserver to check on it before the time is up, which probably affects the temperature! I'm such a nosy cook...

    I like to to use yoghurt as an alternative to sour cream in a variety of recipes, mostly guacamole, so I don't use any sugar at all, and the last batch worked really well.

    to be honest I'm not sure about coconut sugar! Yes, you definitely could use raw sugar, just mill before the first step. I've been making it with 100-120g of sugar which is pretty good with 2L milk. However a friend made it yesterday with 50g of sugar and it worked perfect tmrc_emoticons.)
