i recently got addicted to plain yogurt. after finding out about whole milk yogurt i just cant get enough. in hopes to save money i started culturing my own.
this is my second go at homemade yogurt so keep that in mind. my first batch was less creamy and more sour. thinking it has something to do with the mountain high yogurt strain i used. this time around i used organic valley grass milk everything (half and half, whole milk, yogurt). after mixing 2 cups half and half with 4 cups whole milk i seperated 2 cups into a small raw batch (heated only to 120) and the remaining 4 cups into a bigger pasteurized batch (heated to 180) both in 2 different crock pots.
the end result of both are ultra creamy i am in love! the raw batch has a fuller milk flavor and the pasteurized batch has more of a yogurt flavor but with that same creamy texture/flavor.
my first attempt at homemade yogurt was big batch pasteurized organic valley milk and mountain high organic yogurt. it didn't turn out as cre... keep reading on reddit ➡
I dumpster dive all my yogurt; typically long expired by the time I get around to eating it. Tastes fine, etc. but was curious if the little microbes die or multiply. Thanks in advance!
I have to quickly scroll past it every time.
I've recently started getting into yogurt-making, and I'm finding that the result is great in every way except for the texture. It's very lumpy and curdy, and while I don't mind, my wife can't stand it (loves that in her cottage cheese though, go figure).
Here's my current recipe. What step am I missing to get it coming out nice and smooth?
Hi all! I'm looking for ways to flavor yogurt. This is the recipe I've been using :http://foodisafourletterword.com/recipe/oui-vanilla-french-style-yogurt-copycat-recipe/
I've made vanilla, coconut, lemon, and the house favorite, almond just using flavor extracts from the baking aisle. I'm curious if anyone has skipped the sugar and used flavoring syrups or any other suggestions. Thanks for any help!
After hearing to 185•F and then dropping it to 110•F, I forgot to add the yogurt. Essentially just milk was sitting out at about 70•F for 5 hours.
I added the yogurt now, but even if it turns out as yogurt is it safe to eat?
This frightening truth in Sam Harris’ book “The end of Faith” could not be more true. It’s extremely frightening now easily people can be manipulated to believe the fairy tales within the Bible and religion as a whole. The evangelical Christian is quite possibly the most ignorant of facts and the most accepting of hateful prejudice from the book. They believe that their god will grant them passage into heaven if they abstain from any sin yet people of any other religion are destined for an eternity of fire and brimstone. I find it comical when Christians are asked about the validity of Hinduism. They view the aspect of reincarnation as absurd yet completely without evidence accept going to heaven once they die. They think Zeus and Apollo are absurd yet believe unquestionably in Yahweh despite his Old Testament brutality. The modern day religious person is a hybrid of reason and ridiculousness. The modern day fundamentalist is a weapon against reason.
As I was at the grocery store, putting the food I just bought away in my car, I got hit up by a Choosing Beggar.
He was a guy in his early 20s and he ran up to me as his friend waited on the sidewalk. Said “I haven’t eaten in 36 hours, could I have $.20 for chips.”
I hear him but I say “what?” because I wasn’t expecting it. Says this time “I haven’t eaten and was wondering if I could have like $.50 for chips.”
As he’s saying it the second time, I’m thinking about what I can give him from my fresh load of groceries that’s better than a dinky bag of chips. I tell him I have bananas and yogurt and try to hand them to him. He takes the banana and says no to the yogurt.
I say “why not yogurt?” He tells me “well because yogurt is disgusting. I’d never eat it.”
As I reply “well, if I hadn’t eaten in 36 hours, I’d make an exception” he kinda mumbles and walks away eating the banana. He goes back and talks to his friend as they walk away. Pretty sure he was complaining about the ba... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi everyone! Nick here from Vape Dojo / Charlie Noble.
The Discontinued series was kind of... discontinued. Though not by design! So we broke out the old yogurt recipes from the vault and published them today on the Charlie Noble blog.
For those that don't know, or don't remember since it's been a while, a few years ago we had to make some tough decisions and discontinue flavors. Many of these were beloved so we said 'Hey! why not release the recipes'.
If you're interested in DIY, looking for a good read, or you just really miss Fruit On The Bottom, Chocolate Mousse and Smoked Yogurt, click here to check out the recipe as well as some insights into the construction of this flavor!
Leave us a comment letting us know if you tried it, which one you'd like us to do next or anything you'd like.

Edit: or gelato
Edit 2: or sorbet/sherbet?
Other info: I’m not much of a snacker as I’m following the 23:1 intermittent fasting schedule 5 days a week. Anyway I can incorporate this free yogurt into meals rather than just eating it as it is? I hate to not take advantage of free food!
Edit: Wow!!!! You guys really came through. Thanks for all the suggestions!!!!
If you eat (or would like to eat) yogurt on a regular basis, you should consider making it for yourself. Now I'm generally pretty lazy and don't like big cooking projects, but this is extremely simple.
If you make it yourself, the cost of a gallon of yogurt can be the cost of a gallon of milk. In my case I added some cream to make it thicker, so it costs a little more than regular milk, but MUCH less than the equivalent amount of yogurt. You can also thicken it with powdered milk. If you prep it before bed, it amounts to doing a very small amount of prep, going to sleep, and waking up to a huge batch of yogurt.
My son has recently been eating store-bought yogurt (with some fruit and granola) every morning, so this is going to be a nice savings from our grocery bill, especially since yogurt has gotten really pricey imo. I've also started eating the same thing, for a healthy and easy lunch every day.
Lastly -- it tastes really good. I used about 4 parts whole milk to 1 part he... keep reading on reddit ➡
Truly fucked up. Also those skittles are nasty af.
Been making nice creamy Greek yogurt using Instant Pot. Usual use Kirkland Greek as starter. Tried Sigi Skyr this time. More tangy, less creamy, less thick. Interesting try. Anyone use Sigi as starter?
I told my daughter she could pick her yogurt while we were at the store. She chose the box with a unicorn on it. Now, I know this kid, she doesn't like certain flavors and this box had the flavors she did't like, I know, because I was stuck eating her yogurt cups last time she got the same type.
ME- "It's Banana Strawberry and Raspberry, are you okay with those flavors, you didn't like them before, remember?"
4 Yr Old- "No, it's unicorn flavored."
It wasn't worth a battle, and if she hated them I would just have unicorn yogurts for the next week at lunch so we took it home and she wanted one right away so I cut the top of the squeeze packet and handed it to her.
She ate the whole thing and says "Unicorns are delicious."
Packaging makes a big difference in flavor.
As hilarious and bizarre as this *fun fact* about myself is, it has bothered me for YEARS, that I can't find any actual physical proof of doing this, and my mom certainly didn't keep any paperwork from it. From what I remember, I grew up in the greater Boston area and these taste-testings took place in the Brighton area. I would be in a room with I believe 2-3 other children and we would try a yogurt and rank it on a piece of paper indicating how much we liked the flavor. I believe the yogurt brand was dannon, and we weren't allowed to eat anything other than saltines or drink water during or time there in order to give us a cleansed palette. This would've taken place in the early 2000s, and I believe I was paid each time to do it.
Does anyone have a similar experience? Have you ever taste tested for anything as a child? Would love to know anymore info, and if they still conduct these tests
EDIT: Thank you everyone for commenting! I was told it was a group called Focus in Bosto... keep reading on reddit ➡
not that I need a half gallon of sour cream, just outta curiosity could you boil the milk then let it cool and add sour cream as starter instead of yogurt as starter and put it on the yogurt function for 8 hours?
Lately I've been on a mission to shape up, and so I'm trying to figure out healthy foods for variety, and good snacks. I've been avoiding yogurts with high sugar content, and are higher in protein, and eating a lot of nuts. I feel like common practice is to go for almonds over cashews or peanuts, but in my situation the latter is more readily available. Are there any traps I should avoid, like staying away from salted nuts, etc?
I recently learned that there are lids specifically made for the Oui yogurt jars! oui lids
Aldi now has these protein greek yogurts that are flavored with NO added sugar!! They are 2 points on purple plan, 100 calories and 13g of protein. So excited about this, I hate plain greek yogurt with fruit 😂
For whoever needs it, if your yogurt comes out runny like mine does, you can try this instead of ordering a $30 strainer.
I realize you can just use a bowl and a nut milk bag/cheesecloth, but I was turned off by the idea of leaving yogurt in the fridge without a lid, as I was bound to forget about it in there. I also hates how much cheesecloth I was using.
Anyway: 2 quart containers from the dollar tree (holes punched in the bottom of one), a bunch of rubber bands to make a tight seal, and a 2-pack of nut milk bags off of Amazon for a total of about $9.
Any tips of uses for the liquid removed? I've heard it's good for plants.
