Okay, I'm so jealous you all are getting this to work. Mine never, ever turns out.

Great blog idea, though. I wish there were more entries.

i know, i stopped getting wic and ran out of inspiration. if you have some recipe ideas feel free to send them to me and i will post them.

and i can get the yogurt to work, but when i freeze it, it thaws totally gross looking, and i cant stomach using it. so i haven't repeated the recipe.

Default Re: make your own yogurt

well, i still had to use the thermometer, b/c the temps were way off just based on waiting times when my coconut milk one was done, but tasted great, but it was very runny. i still used it up, though.

i'm about to try the spunky coconut cashew milk recipe, and i'll "brew" it in the crockpot, but in a water bath with yogurt inside of a jar.

i'll let you know how it worked.

I make mine in the crockpot. I use Stonyfield Farms Organic WHOLE plain yogurt, with Homestead Creamery WHOLE milk (not creamline). If I use those two together, I get nice thick yogurt. I have tried using plain fat free yogurt or ultra pasteurized whole milk and it wont turn out. It will be only slightly thicker than milk.

I put half gallon of HC milk in crock pot on low for 2 1/2 hours, with lid on. After 2 1/2 hours, turn off and leave covered for 3 hours. After 3 hours, whisk in one cup of whole plain yogurt. Put lid on, cover with a thick towel and leave overnight at least 8 hours. I usually leave mine about 10 hours. I love it

SUCCESS!

i made raw cashew milk yogurt and it was great.

1. soak 1 cup cashews 12-24 hrs
2. blend on "soup" setting on blendtec with some salt and sweetener with max amount of water for the jar (we have the xl jar, so like, 42 oz of water)
3. pour into mason jars with heaping tsp of silk plain yogurt in each (you can sub whatever culture, i'm sure) dissolve 1 packet of gelatin in a tiny bit of hot water (scant 1/4 cup) and pour into jars, shake like a polaroid picture
4. set those into a crock pot full of warm water and set it on "warm"
5. fogedaboudit! for about 8-16 hrs
6. remove, shake again, refrigerate
7. it gets better and better each day it sits in the fridge
