This is one I've used from someone on EB. My boys hated it sick.gif , but everyone else that had used it on the thread said it was great. blush.gif

Yoghurt recipe using an Easiyo

1 and 1/3 cups of pwd milk
1/3  cup  of sugar
2 tbs of an Easiyo sachet (seal it and keep using  it till you finish  the sachet)
A dash of vanilla extract or  essence

leave for at least 12  hours and voila ...perfect  creamy ultra cheap yoghurt!!

Hope you don't mind me adding to your post but can anyone help with with why my yoghurt comes out running? I even did one from a sachet last night and still come out really running after 12 hours and yes I triple checked I wasn't using a drinking yoghurt one laughing2.gif

Ok I bought the Banana Flavour this week made it up as I do all the other flavours and it has come out  a really thick stretchy consistancy. The only difference I can think of was that it was a hot day and I left it out on the bench and it got all the afternoon sun.

My woolies has a crap range IGA is better. All woolies had was greek, nautural, low fat, s/berry and vanilla, i got the s/berry. They are also more $$ at woolies.

I only use a sachet of mix about once every 2 months.  The rest of the time I use this recipe:

1 1/3 cups powdered milk ( more for thicker, less for thinner)
1 Tb of previous batch
and make up the jar with water.

This makes plain natural yoghurt.  Works great , unless you use non-fat milk powder (which doesn't set for some reason)  All the other flavourings are optional, so fiddle with sugar, etc to taste.  ( I don't add any until after  the yoghurt is in the serving bowl!)

ohboy - is it still runny after it has been set in the fridge?  I find the sachets are sometimes a bit runny when you take them out of the thermos, but get better once set in the fridge, but you need to set it without disturbing it - I don't know why but that's what I used to find.  I use the milk powder method now.  You can buy EasiYo brand fruit sachets that you add to plain yoghurt to flavour them.  I've got them at both KMart and Coles.  Maybe your kids would like it better witht eh fruit flavour in it (It's a bit like a strong jam ix)

I have seen the ads for them on tv.

The batch i made last night the kids said it tasted better today but it still "got the back of the throat" (it did taste a bit tart) i told them it will probably taste better with their museli, if not ill whack a tad of jam in it roll2.gif

How long does a batch keep for before it has to be thrown?

Manda mix a bit of honey through it when you serve it, that should sweeten it up for them.

The greek sachets are awesome.  I put a bit of sugar in mine while I'm mixing the water in, but I make it nowhere near as sweet as the commercial stuff.

And a batch will last for 2 weeks.

Haven't done this for a while but used to make it with uht milk (have to use uht, not regular milk because it is heat treated i.e. no bacteria).  Half fill container with (room temp) uht milk, place in about 4 very heaped dessert spoons of powdered milk and a couple of dessert spoons of store bought yoghurt, fill to the top with the rest of the uht milk then place in easiyo container as per the instructions.  Last time I made this I sweetened it afterwards with a simple jam that I made by gently heating some cherries and sugar together for about 10 mins, then cooled and stirred into the yoghurt.  Yummo.

If you have an esky type thing and a jar and a thermometer, this is how you make yoghurt.

Heat a litre of normal full cream milk to 85 - 90 degrees. Let it cool to around 45 degrees. Add a tablespoon of cultured yoghurt  - we use bornhoffen(no more) to it and stir. Chuck it in the jar and put it in the esky thing for 6hrs. Then put in fridge. Then its whne its cooled you have lovely wonderful pure yoghurt. Add honey or whatever you want to flavor if you want.

I keep 1 TBSP from the old yogurt and add it to 1 1/2 cups of powdered milk then mix with water before putting it in the esiyo thing. Comes out perfectly everytime. I add fruit or plavours for the kids later, cause i like it natural for my smoothies. Every 10 times I use a fresh esiyo packet for new cultures. Much cheaper than a new packet everytime.

Sam- LOL thats what i did (re honey) but dylan prefers Jam hehe, i also sprinkled a few crushed nuts over it too.

Thanks for letting me know how long it keeps original.gif No fear of it lasting that long here we are already more than halfway thru it!

I was just looking on the Easiyo site and they have some recipes using the yogurt if anyone is interested.

ETA- Click on cookbook under the full product range

biggrin.gif I am new to this site, previously just been looking and learining, I have found this site the best for suggestions and recipes for making yoghurt with the easyio maker so thought would ask mine here if thats all right.

I have followed the recipe from EB with powdered milk and its working great, still perfecting the thickness of the end product, but would like to know if anyone uses Skim powdered milk and if so how much, I tried one batch with 1 1/2 cups instead of the 1 1/3 cups normal powdered milk but it didn't set at all, any suggestions would be appreciated.

thanks  original.gif
