Recipe's preparation

    Vanilla Yogurt
  1. Put milk, sugar and vanilla of choice in TM bowl (if using bean, scrape seeds into milk).  heat for 12 mins, 80 degrees, Speed 2.

    Whisk for 10 secs, speed 4 until a light foam appears on the surface to avoid skin forming whilst cooling, remove lid and leave to cool (this process will take approx 1 1/2 hrs, so set a timer)

    Test temperature by placing bowl in TM and turning on...if 37 degree light is on it is probably too hot. wait for light to go out or test like baby milk on your wrist before proceeding.

    Add natural yogurt starter, mix gently speed 4, 4 secs.  Heat the yogurt base for 10 mins, 37 degrees, speed 2.

    Meanwhile boil kettle and place oven on a low heat approx 50 - 70 degrees to warm up (on warm summer nights you can just leave out). Fill Thermo server with boiling water to scold out, then discard the water and place lid on to retain heat until ready to use.

    After 10 mins cooking has completed, pour warm yogurt mixture into the pre warmed Thermoserver or flask equivalent.  Wrap server in Thermo mat and teatowel to preserve heat during incubation and place in oven or warm place for 6 - 8 hrs or overnight.

    After time has elapsed and yogurt thickened, strain through muslin until between 200-400mls of whey has been strained off to get a creamier thicker consistency.

    Chill and serve.

    This a regular at my house. Simple to make and lots less sugar than store bought. I use raw sugar so on the first step I cook for 12 min 80 degrees speed 4 otherwise the sugar seems to burn on the bottom of the jug. Thanks

    I love this recipe. I am going to be putting it in reusable pouches for the kids, so wouldn't mind if it was a little more runny. Do I use less of the starter if I want it a little less firm?

    Hi yes you can half the recipe easily no problem... when you half a recipe you can reduce times by 20% as a general rule.  Good luck... remember its a living culture so may not always thicken as you want without the milk powder (which I do not use) but a think yogurt is great in smoothies!

As there is only one little boy eating yogurt in our house I was wondering if this receipe can be made with 1/2 amount of ingredients? If so, do I cook it for the same amount of time?

  • Really great recipe thanks.

    Submitted by LoriO6 on 18. August 2014 - 13:06.

    Really great recipe thanks.  My kids werent fans of the EDC recipe so we tried this and it was a real success.  I reccommend chilling the yogurt in the fridge for a few hours before putting through muslin/nutmilk bag.  I have made the recipe a few times, usually start at lunch and put finished yogurt in the fridge overnight before straining out the whey.  This last time I started at night and left yogurt overnight in oven, then strained straight away the next morning but the whey was full of creaminess instead of being that translucent yellow colour.  I think chilling would have helped it thicken that bit more, and made it easier to separate the true whey.  But, great recipe overall.

    Currently making this now. The cooking time seems considerably less than all other yoghurt recipes and a lower cooking temp than edc. Wondering why this is? 

     

    Really hoping it turns out creamy and thick. Will update after, thanks.

    Submitted by KirstyE on 11. June 2014 - 23:48.

    Hi, I have never made it with longlife milk so not sure but Yogurt can be subject to fail as its a living thing....this time of year is harder as you have to work at the ambient climate to keep it at that 'warm' temp to reproduce the bacteria in the yogurt.  Use the yogurt drink which did not work in smoothies etc and keep trying.

    Its worth the effort once you get the hang of it, you can add the milk powder as per EDc for a more 'sure thing' set but I prefer not to.  Good luck next time....I have heard of people using wheat pack and allsorts of options to keep it warm !!!!

    Hi Mixing it up....Thats basically what I do in the main...2ltrs, No Sugar or Vanilla and keep it plain so I can top or flavour separatelly!!!

    The vanilla was for my go getters talk and in response to those wanting a stepping stone between Thermo yogurt and commercial.

    So pleased so many are finding success at Yogurt as once you have 'cracked it' theres no going back and save me heaps tmrc_emoticons.)

    Great recipe!  I made a slight variation by adding 50g of full cream milk power.  This is something I noticed amongst other recipies so thought I'd give it a try based on this recipe.  It was a great success.  The yogurt was very thick and creamy and I didn't need to strain it.  In fact it has continued to thicken over the two days since I made it.  I don't think it's going to last too much longer though cause my Boys can't stop eating it ... they said that it is so much better then the bought stuff.  Absolutely fantastic ... I highly recommend this recipe.  Thank you  tmrc_emoticons.)
