Homemade Yogurt with Andrew James Yogurt Maker

Earlier this month, I was on a hunt for an ice cream maker. It was only then I realised there are such thing call yogurt maker (I am not referring to EasiYo Easy Yogurt Maker. I don't like the idea of relying on their sachet of yogurt mix).

To be honest, I don't think there is a need to be fussy about yogurt maker. All we are looking for is an incubator for the yogurt to culture. Back in Kuala Lumpur, my mummy just leaves the mixture of milk and yogurt in a mug to culture on its own overnight before chilling them in refrigerator. 

The reason why I picked Andrew James is because I gets to do 2 litre of yogurt at once. Also, I like the idea of bottling them in 12 different bottles. That way the yogurt will stay fresh until the moment we consume them.

I make my first batch of yogurt almost right away despite only having about 1 litre of milk left in refrigerator.

Here is how my version of homemade yogurt:

2 litre milk
150g plain yogurt (I used the whole bottle from earlier batch)
  1. Heat up the milk. Don't forget to stir them once in awhile (this is to avoid skinning)
  2. Let the milk cool down to lukewarm temperature
  3. Whisk the yogurt into the milk
  4. Pour the mixture into 12 cup
  5. Place the cups into the yogurt maker. Set 8 hours and click start button
  6. Next day: place the yogurt into the refrigerator

End result:

Yogurt with homemade strawberry compote

Yogurt with chia seeds and honey

Yogurt with honey and crushed Crabtree spiced ginger biscuits
