EasiYo Follow Up

Easiyo Yogurt Maker with Red Lid Jar
                                                                



I have been using my EasiYo Yogurt maker for close to a week now. I have been experimenting with how long to leave it to "brew" for lack of a better term. I realized that buying the their yogurt blends in the sachet it could get a little expensive when you eat yogurt like I do. So I have been researching out how to do my yogurt without the sachets.

I found a recipe that will help the supplies of sachets that I do have last longer. Instead of using the whole thing just use 2 Tablespoons of the mix and 1 1/3 cup of dry milk and mix per instructions. I kind of like this blend a little better. It seems to firm faster and a little bit more solid than the sachet mixes. I am still looking for a good recipe for a yogurt starter to use so I don't have to use the sachets. I have come across a couple articles that say you can just use a couple tablespoons of store bought yogurt as your starter. I am looking for a little bit more information on this right now.

Overall...... I love making my own yogurt. I love the EasiYo too. It is really easy to use and yogurt making fun!

Just found your blog while searching for Easiyo on the internet. We use ours everyday (sometimes twice a day). You can just scoop about a tablespoon of the yogurt from your previous batch and put it in your next batch. We use powder milk so we just put a cup of powder milk in with 500ml of water shake it up then open the jug again and put a spoon or two of yogurt in and fill it the rest of the way with water. Then just do as normal in the thermos. Good luck and enjoy!

the best yogurt culture I have found is at dairyconnection.com. It is freeze-dried, stored in the refrigerator, and you only need 1/8 teaspoon to culture up to 4 gallons of milk. We use 2% milk mostly, but it also works well with non-fat. The yogurt is thick and smooth with a tangy taste. We are using the same jar of culture we purchased 8 months ago, and I eat one-two containers of yogurt every day. Definitely economical, easy, and tasty!
