  • 2-1/2 cups milk whole milk or skim milk
  • 1 tbsp non-instant powdered milk optional
  • 1 tsp natural yogurt as starter


  • Put the milk into a thick-bottomed pan.
  • Whisk in the powdered milk if desired; it gives a better texture and thicker yogurt.
  • Heat the milk to 180° or to just below boiling point.
  • Cool the milk to 110° by placing the pan in a sink of cold water.
  • Rinse out the thermos with hot water. Pour most of the milk into the thermos.
  • Blend 1 teaspoon of natural yogurt with the remaining milk and add it to the thermos.
  • Twist the stopper on firmly and shake to mix well.
  • Leave for 4 - 6 hours or until firm.
  • Remove the stopper and put the thermos in the refrigerator to cool and set the yogurt.
  • You can use 1 teaspoon of this yogurt to "start" the next batch, but you will need a starter of fresh "live" yogurt every 7 - 10 batches.
