Homemade Greek Yoghurt Recipe

Homemade Greek Yoghurt Recipe

Make easy creamy thick yoghurt. This Greek-style yoghurt need only two simple ingredients to make: store-bought fresh yoghurt and whole pasteurized milk. Serve with your muesli and fresh berries for a healthy breakfast bowl! 

Greek yoghurt is simply plain yoghurt strained to remove whey for a creamier and thicker result. It’s also a healthier option, with twice the amount of protein as plain yoghurt. A yoghurt maker does it with a press of a button.

Ingredients 

  • 150ml fresh yoghurt
  • 1.45L milk

Instructions

  1. Combine yoghurt and milk to the large (1.8L) container. If using the small (1.6L) container, add up to 1.35L of milk. Stir well. 
  2. Place container inside the unit and secure white lid and transparent cover on top. 
  3. Plug the yoghurt maker in, select program C1 then press the power button. Leave the yoghurt to set. Note: Machine will run for 10 hours before automatically shutting off.
  4. Chill finished yoghurt in the fridge for 3 hours.
  5. After 3 hours, pour yoghurt through the strainer. Put back in the fridge to chill for 6 hours.
  6. Serve with muesli and fresh berries for a healthy breakfast bowl. 
  7. Transfer yoghurt in a glass jar and store remaining in the fridge. Homemade Greek yoghurt will last up to 10 days. 

Notes

  • To thicken yoghurt, mix 2 tablespoons of milk powder with every 1 litre of milk used.
  • For extra flavour, add sugar, honey, jam, and fruit to your yoghurt mix.
  • If using soy milk, use a yoghurt starter which also contains soy cultures. 
  • For a thicker yoghurt with less whey, ensure to match the fat content of milk with fat content of yoghurt starter.
  • When using your own yoghurt as a starter, the usual 10-hour maturing process may take slightly longer. Also, the more times your own yoghurt is repeated as a starter, the thinner your yoghurt will become.
