      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 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, select MENU/AUTOMATIC RECIPES/YOGHURT.
    Skip through the recipe until it tells you to turn te dial, then turn the dial and wait 8 hours!

    NOTE: don't put milk powder or cream in
  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.

    This yoghurt wil not be as thick as the original double batch as it is only incubating for 8 hours then is disturbed when tipping from the TM bowl into a container for refridgeration.

    I have also successfully used Jalna and Tamar Valley kids Greek yoghurts for starters.

I usually start this at abnout 7:30pm which means I'm putting my yoghurt 'to bed' as I go to bed about 10pm! 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. Remeber the TM will be on for 8 hours!

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.

    Can this be done as a smaller quantity - say using 500 or 1000mL milk????
    Do all the other instructions stay the same?
