Never buy yogurt again! That’s right, you heard me. This recipe is so easy and will save you so much money! We used to spend $10-15 a week on organic yogurt until I discovered I could do it myself at home for only $5!

Ingredients
  1. 8 cups Organic homo milk (amazing when you can get it close to it's expire date and it's 50% off!)
  2. 1/2 cup Organic plain yogurt with active/live bacteria
  3. Crockpot
  4. Thermometer
  5. A couple towels
  6. Mason jars with lids
Instructions
  1. First start by putting your 8 cups (1 gallon/2 litres) of Organic homo* milk into your Crockpot. Depending on your Crockpot you may have to fiddle with the timing a bit. You need to scald your milk, which means you want to get it up to 180°F. For mine, I had it on low for 2 hours and then high for 30minutes. Crockpots vary in temperatures so first try 2 hours on low. I always use a timer for these steps, if I didn't I would definitely forget about it!
  2. Once you bring the milk up to 180°F you then want to bring the milk down to 110°F. To do this,turn the Crockpot off, keep the lid on and let sit for 3 hours.
  3. Once the 3 hours is up, stir in the 1/2 cup of yogurt and put a few tea towels on top to replace the lid.
  4. Let stand 8-12 hours (or overnight).
  5. In the morning you will have yogurt! Remove the towels and give it a stir.
  6. At this point you have a couple options. It may be a bit thin, depending how thick you want it depends on the next step. If it turns out thin then you can strain it through a cheesecloth and end up with Greek style yogurt. If it is your desired consistency then pour into mason jars, screw the lids on and refrigerate for a few hours before eating.
  7. You will want to save 1/2 a cup of this yogurt to mix with milk for your next batch. It will last 7-10 days in the fridge.
Notes
  1. * I have also used 2% milk and it turned out just as thick.
  2. We usually sweeten our yogurt with maple syrup. So tasty! You can also use this yogurt to make Overnight Oats - one of my favourite breakfasts!
