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 🙂
