Health Tips 4 - Make your own yogurt

Dear all,

I am finally back online. No time for craft work yet.. so, I thought I would share a simple recipe I use to make my own yogurt.  In case you would like to read about the benefits of yogurt, here is a link that gives a good overview:

The recipe I use to make yogurt:
1) Blend the following together:
1 cup of milk powder
2 cups of hot water
2 cups of room temperature drinking water (in Malaysia, it is about 27 °C now at 10:12pm)

2) Once you have the warm milk ready, add 2 big table spoon of natural yogurt (starter) you buy from Supermarket (don't buy the flavoured one).   I like to use Marigold brand but other brands should do too.  The milk shouldn't be too hot till it kills the living cultures in the starter.  I found that 2 cups of hot water plus 2 cups of room temperature drinking water mixed together worked well.

3) I use a container which could go into my slow cooker (without turning on the electricity).  This is so that the milk remained warm for a longer time.   If you don't have a slow cooker, any other method is fine.  For example, leave it in the kitchen cupboard or wrap it with a towel or use a container which doesn't lose heat easily etc..

4) The yogurt is ready after a few hours (say 8, I never really measure how long it takes.  Usually I make it at night and I have my yogurt the next morning).  Keep in fridge once you think it is thick enough..  :)

If you haven't tried it...  you should..  :)

Warmest regards,

Hi Mila...

Happy Holiday to you..

Yeah... have been away for quite awhile..
Good to hear from you again.

I am doing well. Thank you. I take time off every now and then to rejuvenate.. :)

Yes, yogurt is good for breakfast.. Yogurt itself may not be so tasty.. but if it is blended fruits (such as mango, berries, etc) or add in cut fruits, it is really tasty..


Warmest regards,
