Yoghurt is one of the most popular milk products. There are a lot of types of this diet delicacy. Low-fat yoghurt, no-fat-yoghurt, Greek yogurt and so one. Today we`ll share with you the recipe for homemade yogurt, you may include into your healthy diet.

For cooking homemade yoghurt, you should choose quality ingredients. The main one is definitely milk. Ideally, you will get unpasteurised milk straight from a farm. Alternatively, pasteurised milk is good as well. For boiling the milk, use a pan with a thick bottom. And here is the small secret for the vegans. If you avoid including dairy products into your diet, replace classical milk with the soy, almond or any other type of the vegetable milk. milk. - very good recipes with milk. learn more...

  1. To begin with, heat raw milk. This will make the snack healthier and thicker.
  2. While the milk is still warm, add the good bacteria to a small amount of milk. Leave the rest of the milk to cool down and then pour the small amount of milk with the good bacteria into the main bowl.
  3. Stir the liquid carefully. When you’re satisfied with the result, pour the tender yoghurt into jars or bottles. Leave it for 6-9 hours in a warm place. Keep in mind, that the longer you wait, the thicker your snack will be.

Now put the bottles into the fridge and wait for several hours. Your delicious creamy snack is ready! It may be stored in the fridge for 7-8 days.

If you prefer sweet yoghurt, you can use this recipe as the yoghurt base that you will enhance by adding in it your favourite fruits, berries, nuts and so on. Let’s take a look at the most popular variants.

  • Fruit yoghurt. If you want to cook homemade yoghurt with fruits, be very careful when choosing the fruit to add. Avoid using citrus and kiwi. As for the rest of the fruits, they should be added when the yoghurt is still warm.
  • Sweet vanilla dessert. If you want to cook classic sweet yoghurt, mix sugar with a small amount of water beforehand. Such a sweet syrup won’t change the structure of the dessert. As for the vanilla flavour, I recommend using fresh vanilla pod instead of vanilla sugar or essence. Cut it carefully and dip into the pan with the boiling milk. Dispose of the vanilla pod upon using it.
  • Fat creamy yoghurt. If you want to increase a level of fat in yoghurt and make it creamier, add cream into the pan with the boiling milk. In this case your meal will be rather thick.

In summary, homemade yoghurt is both healthy and tasty. You can use this basic recipe for cooking both sweet breakfasts and snacks and mixing sauces, or salad dressings. All you need is to mix a neutral yoghurt with chopped herbs, spices or even garlic. Use our simple recipe and make all your dishes better and tastier.

Bon Appetite!
