DIY Yoghurt

25 votes

If you have leftover yoghurt, why not try making your own. This makes 1 litre of yoghurt.

Don’t lose track while you’re cooking, click on an ingredient or step to tick it off so you know where you are up to.


  • 900ml of full fat milk
  • ¼ cup plain yogurt, just make sure the label says “live” or “active” cultures




  1. Place milk in a medium pot and heat to around 85°C (use a thermometer or for around 10 mins)
  2. Remove pot from heat and allow to cool to around 40°C
  3. Add yoghurt to a 1 litre jar, put in half a cup of the warmed milk and shake/stir gently to combine
  4. Add the rest of the warm milk and shake gently
  5. Wrap in a tea towel and keep in a warm spot for around 12 hours (overnight is perfect). This could be your hot water cupboard, a sunny window sill,or a chilly bin or a yoghurt maker if you have one
