Yogurt – a basic ingredient at a lower cost

If you come and see me you will probably hear me talking about yogurt.

Unsweetened, low-fat yogurt can be a useful basic ingredient, but many people want it at a lower cost. Here is my top tip.

Yogurt using yogurt mixes

You will find yogurt mixes on the supermarket shelves. Usually one sachet makes 1 kg of yogurt. If you are using yogurt as an ingredient or snack you could get through several sachets each week. I have found you can make very good yogurt this way

  • 30g (2 TBSP) yogurt mix
  • 140g (1 1/4 C) skimmed milk powder

Make up as per instructions on the yogurt mix. Seal the remaining yogurt mix for use over 2-3 weeks.

You may find the yogurt weeps a bit more than usual, just stir in the moisture before you use it.

Can you make plant-based yogurt a similar way?

Watch out for a future post on this, I have just ordered some ingredients 🙂

  1. I cant get the hang of making dairy free yogurt. I have been using coconut milk or cream. Is there a secret to it do you know?
