- 6 tablespoons honey
MethodPrep:15min ›Cook:8hr ›Extra time:3hr chilling › Ready in:11hr15min
- Switch on your yoghurt maker and allow it to heat up while you prepare the milk. Choose a place that you can leave the yoghurt maker undisturbed for at least 8 hours and away from any vibrations or movements.
- In a saucepan, bring the milk to the boil and then immediately remove from the heat. Place a cooking thermometer into the milk and wait until the milk has cooled to 50 C or just below. At this point, stir in the unflavoured natural live yoghurt and the dried milk. Give a gentle stir. Transfer to the yoghurt maker and leave covered and completely undisturbed for 8 hours.
- After 8 hours incubating, place the yoghurt in the fridge for 3 hours. Remove the yoghurt from the fridge, stir in the honey and serve.
Yoghurt making tips
However tempting, resist the urge to remove the lid and check the yoghurt, this will have a potentially negative effect on the end result. We set the yoghurt on to incubate last thing at night.
By adding the dried milk, this makes the yoghurt creamier.
Do not add anything to the yoghurt before or during incubating such as sugar and fruit, this should all be done afterwards.Yoghurt should last about 4 days in a sealed container in the fridge.

Yogurt and Honey Bread Recipe | Bread Baking
A longtime cook and baker, Donna Currie has written equipment reviews and bread recipes for Serious Eats. She's also the author of the cookbook Make Ahead Bread.
I use yogurt in bread quite often but usually it's a small addition. This time, the liquid in the recipe is entirely yogurt. To counteract its tartness, I added a generous amount of honey. The resulting bread has a dark brown crust, a soft, moist interior and a small crumb. There's still a hint of tartness, followed by a mild sweetness.
It's not a super-sweet bread, so you could use it for just about anything. I like it toasted, but toasted or not, it makes a killer peanut butter sandwich.
You can use any commercial Greek-style plain yogurt or even the non-Greek-style. You could also strain out some of the whey with a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth.
Homemade yogurt is cheap and easy to make, healthy and absolutely delectable! Once you start making your own, you may never buy it in the store again. Remember, when you try out this recipe, use organic milk to increase the nutritional content even more!
A new meta-analysis that examined 170 published studies found that organic milk had several nutritional advantages over conventional milk. The study, led by Organic Center Advisory Board member Carlo Leifert of Newcastle University, found that organic milk had 56% higher healthy omega-3 fatty acid levels than conventional milk. In addition, this study found that organic dairy provides several other health benefits such as higher levels of heart-healthy conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), iron, vitamin E, and carotenoids, all of which are associated with health benefits. The study authors concluded that organic bovine milk has a more desirable fatty acid composition than conventional milk.
- ½ gallon organic milk
- 4 tablespoons organic plain yogurt
- Toppings such as honey, fresh berries, granola or nuts
Put milk into a large heavy saucepan and stir constantly over medium/low heat until it just begins to simmer. Be sure to keep a close eye on the milk—it can boil over very quickly! Remove the milk from the heat and insert a candy thermometer into it. Let the milk sit until it cools down to 115°F. In a separate bowl, gently mix 1 cup of the warm milk with 4 tablespoons of plain yogurt. Add the milk-yogurt mixture back into the milk, stirring gently. Cover the saucepan and place it in a warm location where it will not be disturbed or jostled—an oven with a pilot light, or one with the light on are a good option. Alternatively, a counter or cabinet will do if it’s a hot summer day. Let the milk rest for a minimum of 5 hours (and up to 10). Spoon yogurt into containers and keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Serve your yogurt chilled and topped with anything. When you make your next batch, you can use 4 tablespoons from this batch as your starter.
* For extra thick and creamy yogurt, pour your yogurt into a very fine cheese cloth and allow the excess water to slowly drain out.
Creamy Frozen Yogurt Base
If you are a toppings fan, I kept the base of this recipe simple…lucky you. It’s a creamy, perfectly sweet, vanilla frozen yogurt that allows you to be as creative as you want with it!
Mix in different fruits or add-ins for a new base flavor or go wild with toppings of your choice. I’m already daydreaming about a mint chocolate chip version or a peanut butter banana. YUM.
All you need are three healthy ingredients for your frozen yogurt: Yogurt (I prefer full fat greek), vanilla extract + Honey!
I’m so excited for this partnership! I get to share delicious recipes like this tutorial on how to make Frozen Yogurt (make it- for real!) but also will be educating around ways we can support our bodies and support the health of the planet.
It’s gonna be an exciting year and I cannot wait to share more!
Preparing the Yogurt Mixture
Stir the powdered milk and the liquid milk together in the saucepan. (Powdered milk makes the homemade yogurt thicker.)
Heat the mixture in the saucepan on medium, inserting the candy thermometer. Stir constantly to prevent sticking. Keep checking the temperature of the mixture until it reaches 185 to 195 degrees Fahrenheit. Do not let the temperature go higher than this (or it will boil).
Remove the saucepan and let the liquid cool to about 110 degrees. You can put the saucepan in the refrigerator to speed up the cooling, but if you do, be careful not to let the temperature drop any lower than 100 degrees, or you will have to start over.
When the mixture is lukewarm, stir in either 1/2 cup of plain, unflavored yogurt or one packet of a yogurt starter culture.
Pour the cultured mixture into the container of the Salton Yogurt Maker, and put the container into the base unit. Close the lid. Make sure the base unit is plugged in. (When it is plugged, the signal light will come on.)
Allow the mixture to culture for at least four hours, but no longer than 10. The yogurt will become more tart the longer it is left in the unit.
Remove the yogurt container and either cover it and place it in the refrigerator, or pour the yogurt into another container with a lid. Store in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving.
Homemade yogurt will last for up to one week stored in the refrigerator. Imagine all the add-ins you can use to make your homemade yogurt breakfast or snack delicious: any kind of fruit any kind of cereal flax seeds, wheat germ sweeteners such as honey, maple syrup, agave nectar, molasses, etc. You can find wonderful savory uses for yogurt in many types of cuisines---Greek (tzatziki), Middle Eastern (labni, Turkish chicken kebabs) and East Indian (chaas, Tandoori chicken, yogurt rice), for example. Yogurt is practically interchangeable with sour cream and is excellent in baked goods, such as corn bread. Consider using your homemade yogurt to make yogurt cheese. What about other types of milk, such as goat's milk (for a rich, caramel flavor) or soy milk (for vegan cuisine)? Frozen yogurt, anyone?
Honey Vanilla Frozen Yogurt Recipe
- 4 cups plain, unsweetened yogurt
- 1/2 cup raw honey (like this)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- Use a stand blender or an immersion blender to combine all three ingredients until the honey is thoroughly mixed in.
- Taste the frozen yogurt mixture, and adjust the sweetness, if needed.
- Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker, and freeze according to manufacturer’s recommendations. (It usually takes 25-30 minutes to complete a batch)
Homemade Yogurt with a Yogurt Maker
1 tablespoon of plain yogurt as a starter or 1 tablespoon of a commercial starter culture available at natural food stores
1 quart of regular or 2% milk
Yogurt maker with cooking thermometer. I use the Donvier brand with eight jars.
Yield: 8 Servings (4 ounces each)
Warm up milk on medium-low until bubbles appear around the edge and steam rises from the surface. Remove saucepan from heat and place thermometer stirrer. When temperature hits 110-115º F, add starter to one of the jars. Add some of the heated milk and stir until well blended. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan a little at a time, stirring well. Pour into 8 jars, cover securely with lids and place jars into the yogurt maker. Put into &ldquomachine&rdquo (really a temperature-controlled warmer) and follow cooking instructions. It will take 6-10 hours (easy to do overnight), depending on tartnness and firmness desired. When done, chill jars in refrigerator for a couple of hours before eating. You can keep yogurt for up to 2 weeks in the fridge.
You will need an ice cream maker.

INGREDIENTS I USED: I don’t have access to organic Greek yogurt, so I used full-fat plain organic yogurt instead. I love Traderspoint Creamery European-style plain whole yogurt – it’s organic + 100% grass-fed. I used a light colored local raw honey. I have used this and this honey brand before. For raw + organic dairy resources near you, see my About page – scroll down to the bottom of that page.
I love how Ariana shares her adventures + inspires us to try new flavors and cook from scratch. And Here We Are At The Table would make a wonderful cookbook to add to your home collection + it would make a lovely hostess gift for a foodie or anyone who loves to travel.
