One family member, my son's mil, Anita, is always so supportive of our blog. She is so talented and always has ideas and inspiration for our blog! This past Christmas, she sent me a yogurt strainer. She showed me her results of making yogurt in her Instant Pot and where she found the recipe. I got so excited thinking about all of the things that I can use this strainer for and for all of the things that I can do with the yogurt. Unfortunately, I discovered that my Instant Pot Lux does not have the yogurt setting. But, I knew that before there were Instant Pots, people still made yogurt. So, my search began for a way that I could make yogurt without an Instant Pot. I found many ways! I used a combination of those ideas and experimented on my own, as is my way.
Guess what! My very first experiment was a great success and it was so easy that I can't believe that I haven't been making my own yogurt all along!
I made a video of myself making my very first batch of homemade yogurt! Watch it, and then I will list some highlights to help you make your own yogurt without an Instant Pot as well!
Whelp, now you know how I look in the morning.
Here are a few highlights to remember:
In a few days, I'll share the recipe for my lemon blackberry cheesecake that I made with this homemade yogurt! There will be a few other things to come as well!
Here is a shoutout to Anita for getting me excited about making yogurt! It is such a satisfying feeling to make something that is successful, delicious, versatile and money saving! Let me know if you give it a try.
