      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Weigh milk and milk powder into thermomix

    Cook 20 min/90deg/sp3

    Remove lid from jug and place jug into the fridge for approx 1 hour

    Place jug back on to thermomix and check that temp is 37 deg or less (no reading)

    Add yoghurt starter and set machine for 10 min/37deg and whiz up to speed 5 for 3 sec, then turn down to speed 1 for the remaining time.

    Place yoghurt mixture into a yoghurt maker container (Easiyo or Hansell's). Add sufficient hot water to the yoghurt maker to keep the mixture at around 35 degrees for the duration of incubation. Too hot and your culture will die, too cold and it won't set. This will vary depending on ambient temperature where you live.

    Incubate in yoghurt maker for 6-12 hours depending on desired flavour (the longer you incubate, the tangier your yoghurt will be)

    Remove 100-150g of your yoghurt into a small container and keep aside as a starter for your next batch.

    Refridgerate yoghurt and starter.

Accessories you need



For your first batch of yoghurt, you will need to purchase yoghurt from the supermarket to use as your starter. It needs to have live cultures in it. I recommend Jalna pot set yoghurt. For future batches, keep aside some of your yoghurt when it has finished incubating to use as a starter. You can freeze your starter if you won't be using it for more than a week or so. Just defrost before making your next batch. You never need buy yoghurt again!

  • Excellent yoghurt...

    Excellent yoghurt,
    This is the second thermie yoghurt recipe I have tried, the first was a failure so I was happy that this one turned out. I only sat my Easyyo in the water bath container for 6 hours! I had a sneak peek and a taste after that time and the yoghurt was nice and thick with a mild flavour. The only problem I had, was trying to get the water temperature down to 35 degrees before placing my Easiyo into it ... fabulous recipe thankyou I will be keeping this one for a regular go to 😊
