yoghurt commercial - take two

Inside the EasiYo maker is a plastic 1kg container with a screwtop lid.
This is what you mix the yoghurt base in.

The instructions tell you to half fill this container with cool drinking water, then pour in the yoghurt base. At this point you can add 2-4 tablespoons of sugar if you wish. I added sugar the first few times - 3 tablespoons - then gradually cut down. This last batch has only one tablespoon.


I use a whisk to mix in the powder, others screw on the lid and give it a good shake.
Top up the container with more water, screw on the lid and give it a final shake up.

Inside the EasiYo maker, pour boiling water to the top of the baffle, (funny name - baffle)

Sit the yoghurt container inside the maker, screw on that lid, then leave the whole thing to sit overnight, or all day if you make it in the morning.

And there you have it, your own homemade yoghurt.

And this post only took an hour and a bit to put up. I had to cancel a few photos that weren't loading....

  1. The important question is what does it taste like?

  4. EC; have you tried Greek style yoghurt from one of those specialty yoghurt bars? It's like that.

    sleepydwarf; yes, yummy. I mix in chopped fruit when I eat it. Strawberries, or bananas, raspberry puree.

    Jayne; much nicer than supermarket stuff, equal par with the specialty yoghurt bars.

    Life In A Pink Fibro; yes, give it a try. Mix in their favourite "add-ins".

  5. Oh, that sounds wonderful.

    Will have to look to see if it's available in the U.S...

  6. Somehow, I remember making yogurt once, years ago, but I think I just used some existing yogurt to get the new yogurt going.

  7. I had a website bookmarked on my old computer to get other (non-store) flavours. Let me look it up ....

    Here you are!

    A little cheaper and a LOT more flavours. I want a second jar so I can do greek/natural in one and then flavoured in another. Think I know what I am buying next pay :)

  8. Pearl; if they're not available, you may be able to buy one online. I'm sure you'd have them or something very similar in the USA.

    Snowbrush; I remember that too. I didn't eat yoghurt in those days, but I remember a friend's mother making it. She made her own cottage cheese too. My mum used to make Quark, it would hang in a little calico bag and drip at the end of the back porch. Horrible stuff. To me.

    permanently amamnda; thanks for that link. I'll check it out after I get home from work. I prefer to make plain yoghurt and then just add whatever I fancy to the serve I'm currently eating. Because it's plain, I can also add it to recipes, such as my banana cake, which uses plain yoghurt.
