How-to: DIY Easy homemade Natural Yogurt

  • Author: Alpha Foodie


How to make your own DIY easy homemade natural yogurt, with just 2 ingredients and 15 minutes hands-on prep time! 



  • 2 litres full fat milk (I used raw)
  • 1/2 cup natural yogurt (from your favourite unflavoured yogurt)
  • thermometer


  1. Heat the milk until it’s about 80-85º C (if you don’t have a thermometer, switch off the heat right before the milk starts boiling)

  2. Set aside to cool of down to about 40-45º C (if you don’t have a thermometer, you can dip your pinkie in the milk and try to keep it there for 7 seconds before it starts to hurt)
  3. Add the 1/2 cup yogurt and stir with a wooden spoon.
  4. Transfer to a clean glass container.

    Note: it’s best to sterilise the jar with boiling water.
  5. Cover, wrap in a blanket or towel and keep in a warm place 6-12 hours. For example, you can keep it in the oven (as long as it’s switched off).
  6. Keep in a glass container in the fridge. Consume within a week.
