Store bought yoghurt may be convenient as it’s easy to get, but it can’t compare with homemade one in its taste and creaminess. Not only do you save the money when you make it at home, more of that - it is seriously good! Although it may sound ambitious, making your own yoghurt is really easy. You will need very little special equipment. If you have a yoghurt maker - just use it, otherwise you can use a covered container, conventional oven, microwave, heating pad... Any of this you already have at home. Just get some fresh organic milk, yoghurt starter and a jar, and - voila! You have your own yoghurt!

Are you on the Instant Pot bandwagon yet? 🙂 If you are, have you tried making yogurt in your Instant Pot?
If you haven’t, you should! Instant Pot Yogurt is great.
I’ve made homemade yogurt several different ways over the last few years, and homemade Instant Pot yogurt is hands-down my favorite method.

The motivation for making your own yoghurt is the same for trying to make other basics from scratch: the ability to control the additives (e.g. how much sugar you want to add) and great cost benefits. (more...)
Homemade yogurt is much less sour than store-bought, and while it’s hard for me to eat store-bought without some sort of sweetener, I can eat this plain.
Second, homemade yogurt is much more cost-effective than the stuff you buy in the store. Greek yogurt isn’t cheap, and it’s been nice to save a few dollars each week on our grocery bill. Plus, I feel good knowing I’m saving on the packaging waste that comes with buying yogurt at the store. I try my best to recycle those yogurt containers, but it’s best not to use them in the first place. (more...)

Store-bought soy yogurts – even most marked “plain” – are all so sweet. I can’t handle it. And I like sweet food! But when you’re cooking with yogurt, maybe you’re trying to make something savory or maybe you just want to mix in some strawberry jam without turning your breakfast bowl from a little too sweet to tooth-meltingly sugary. When you make your own, it’s unsweetened, so you have a lot more control over the sweetness when you’re cooking with it. (more...)
