Homemade Yogurt

Has anyone made homemade yogurt? My kids love yogurt and I like giving it to them except it gets expensive. Joel has yogurt every day because we have not yet been able to get him to drink milk (its coming!).
Here's a recipe for yogurt in the crockpot that looks super easy. I think I'll get some plain yogurt and try it the crockpot way first. All you really need is 1/2 a cup of yogurt and milk, plus some sweeteners or thickeners if you choose to add those.


  1. My sister and friend Jannyne made it. I know it took them a few tries to get it right......I think the recipe they had included powdered milk and yougurt as a starter?
    We can go through a whole tub if our family has it for breakfast, so it can be expensive! Let me know if it works

  2. Yeah, I've read there is a learning curve. This recipe uses yogurt as starter and unflavored gelatin or dry milk for thickener.


Please leave a note! I love to hear from my readers.
