Making Soy Yogurt is so much easier than it sounds. Here are the ingredients and tools you need to whip up your own yogurt!
1/2 cup Soy Yogurt with live Cultures
4 cups plain OR vanilla soy milk- warmed
A very clean Whisk- being clean is important when dealing with cultures!
Jar or Container with a lid
It’s really important to make sure your base yogurt has cultures because what you are going to do is let those cultures multiply and form a larger batch of yogurt. Once you have made your own homemade yogurt, you can keep making more with that last 1/2 cup.
Step One: Set Oven to 100 Degrees while getting out your ingredients
Step 2: If base yogurt is runny, drain out the excess liquid by using a Cheese Cloth
Step 3: If your soy milk is cold, pop it in the microwave to warm it just enough, you don’t want it too hot! I warmed my 4 cups of soymilk in the microwave for about 2 minutes.
Step 4: Whisk together the warm soy milk and base yogurt until the yogurt has incorporated itself into the milk. This shouldn’t take more than a minute of whisking. I would recommend washing your whisk in warm water and soap before hand just to get rid of bacteria.
Step 5: Place a lid on your container (or jar) and place it in your preheated oven. This is where it gets really simple, all you have to do is walk away now! Let the yogurt sit in the oven for at least 8 hours. Don’t turn off the oven, you want to keep it at 100 degrees for the whole night. I usually put it in over night so when I wake up in the morning, I can transfer it.
Final Step: Transfer Yogurt into an old container!
This yogurt is a little runny so if you prefer to eat thick yogurt, all you have to do is add some agar agar while whisking in step 4. I hope this post made sense, if you have any questions on how I made mine please comment!
