Super easy to make and very economical. You can make homemade yoghurt using a yoghurt starter (available in any health food store for more money than you can possibly believe) or by using plain yoghurt. (See recipe notes)

Recipe Ingredients for Homemade fat-free yoghurt

8 cups skim milk
2 tablespoons plain yoghurt

Recipe Directions for Homemade fat-free yoghurt

  1. Heat skim milk in a pot until almost at boiling point.

  2. Let cool until it's the temperature you would serve to an infant. (Test it on the inside of your wrist. If it feels hot, let it cool more; if it feels cool, heat it more; if you feel nothing, it's perfect.)

  3. Remove a cup of the cooled milk and stir in the plain yoghurt.

  4. Add milk mixture to main pot and gently stir.

  5. Pour into warmed covered bowl (I use a crock pot). Wrap with a dishtowel and let sit in a draft-free place 10 hours.

  6. Do NOT disturb it.

  7. Refrigerate and eat as usual. Add fruit or syrup if you desire.

  8. NOTES:

  9. If you use plain yoghurt, read the ingredients. There should only be milk and bacteria. Anything else and your yoghurt will fail. (Definitely NO pectin.) Presonally, I prefer Astro brand because it's cheap. Buy one of those little containers of yoghurt and freeze the remaining yoghurt in an ice cube tray, then thaw two cubes whenever you need fresh starter.

  10. You can use your own yoghurt as a starter for a really long time, but at some point it's nice introduce some new bacteria. (Every month or so is perfect.)

  11. Making yoghurt is NOT a precise science, like cake-making. Basically, you're getting bacteria to grow in a warm place, which is what bacteria wants to do anyway, so as long as you make the milk nice and cozy, then provide a nice warm place for it to breed, you'll end up with yoghurt.

  12. Some people suggest adding some skim milk powder to the warm milk, but I have no idea why you'd do this.
