We (the boys and hub) eat ALOT of yogurt. Years ago, my 1st husband and I had a Persian Restaurant. Our cooks made yogurt daily. But, for the past 15 years or so, we just buy the stuff in the store. And frankly, most of it is not that healthy..

So, I made some last night! OMG! It was sooooooo good! I only had one bite (with a blueberry) to make sure it was not messed up and came out right. YUM!!!!.

I just thought I would share as it is SUPER easy to make, much cheaper than store bought and YOU control what sweetners (if any) you put in..

I made:.

32 oz 1% organic milk.

1/2 cup organic yougurt with live cultures.

Bring milk to boil, let cool to about 100deg then add 1/2 plain yogurt. Stir well. Cover and let sit in warm place for 10 hours. Then pour into jars and place in fridge for 4 hours. Then it's done! You then add your flavorings, i.e. honey, stevia, splenda, fruit, extracts, etc..

For Greek Style, you "strain it". You can google for exact instructions with a cheese cloth..

I added stevia, blueberries and a smidge of vanilla. NOTE: This is for transition and maintenance. Not for the 5/1.

PS Stevia is a very sweet NATURAL herb. I LOVE IT! Costco has 300 packets for like $9. Its much better than artificial sweeteners, aka Splenda, Equal, IMHO!.

Thanks Sandy! A couple of my friends call me "News you can use girl"! LOL! Have you tried CO yet???? I AM SOOOOOO LOVING THAT!!! I think Laura LBJ is doing it too!.

Comment #2

Oh you're all set for week 3 now! This sounds great. I'll have to see where I can get culture around here. I'd rather have organics than the commercial stuff. Thanks for posting this!.

Comment #3

Thanks for the recipe Adelle. Sounds great..

Just a thought here (I'm always the wet blanket you know ), but perhaps recipes that are not suitable for 5&1 should be posted over on the t&m forum rather than here or the recipe board where people on 5&1 come to get recipes that are suitable for the weight loss program. No need to torture these poor people that have not gotten to transition yet..

Again, welcom to transition!.

Yes, your right and I did put the "preface" in my post. But, for those of us with kids, it's rather moot. I have to "touch" the stuff daily! LOL!.

Comment #5

MT, for your "first batch" you just put in 1/2 cup of store bought yogurt with live cultures to make your first batch. THen remember to save 1/2 cup for your next batch..

Just buy organic milk and a small plain organic yogurt and there you go! Super easy and delicious!.

Comment #6

They don't offer organic yogurts here. Not yet anyway. I'll have see if they have any on offer in the surrounding area. Sounds like it's worth the travel..

Comment #7

MT, you can use Organic Milk and regular yogurt for your first batch. It would be 98% or so Organic Yogurt. Your second batch would be basically 100%, KWIM?.

Comment #8

MT, you can also get organic powdered yogurt starter at health food stores and I bet amazon would have it. I just use plain organic like Adele does. It all works. Love having the control over ingredients..

Comment #9

Yep, you can do that as well, but when I last checked, SPENDY!!!!.

Comment #10

Yes, it stays live. Once it's cultured you then put it in the fridge for 4 hours minimum. I know you like Greek Style Lynne. All Greek style is, as you know, is strained in a coffee filter..

Give it a whirl girls!.

Comment #11

Sadly nothing like that in the boonies where I live..

Comment #12

I used to make homemade yogurt as well but would add some half and half to the batch and it was the creamiest goodness... ever. Granted the calories were probably off the charts LOL! I only made vanilla flavored yogurt sweetened with stevia..

Comment #13

I love trying new stuff. I am going to do this this week. Thanks Adele. And I do love love love greek style.........I strain some each night. Yummo.
