Easy Greek Yogurt

This is the easiest thing to make in just a few steps, one pan and one thermometer. Cost? About one dollar for two-three cups of Greek-style yogurt. If you purchased the same in the store, expect to pay over $3.00.

Here is what you need:
One quart of milk
2T of yogurt mixed with 2T of milk

Step One:
Bring the milk to a boil and remove it from the heat source to cool to 100 degree.

Step Two:
When the milk has achieved the right temperature, mix in the yogurt you have mixed with milk. Cover the pot with towels and let it sit in a cooler overnight or 12 hours.

Step Three:
Refrigerate and use in your favorite recipe.

Mine? Fresh berries and a teaspoon of honey.
I make a batch every week. 


  1. I post recipes on my food blog. Tonight, I thought my writer friends might enjoy a simple make-it-yourself recipe of a great product.

  2. I will have to try this. Have you ever used low fat milk?

  3. Here, greek yogurt is $1.20 each. I will have to give this a try. Thanks Rosaria.

  4. I'm a daily yogurt eater with fresh fruit in it so I'll try this. I'm also interested in the question about low fat milk which is what I have.

  5. Yes, I have tried making yogurt with low-fat milk. It still works, but it doesn't have the richness of a real Greek yogurt.

  6. Looks like I am going to benefit from another of you easy tricks in the kitchen...I recall pizza in a jar! I will try this. Thank U
