How to Make Yogurt

Once the many benefits of yogurt hit the health scene, the market was bombarded with every imaginable variety. Unfortunately most come in plastic containers. Not to worry, you can make your own yogurt using glass containers which helps mother earth, saves money and helps keep you healthy.

1. Ingredients Needed for Yogurt

You will need at least a half cup of plain yogurt to serve as a starter. Once you make your own yogurt, you can use that to make future batches. You will also need a half gallon of milk and any variety works including soy, goat and cow’s milk. However, the thickness will depend on the fat content, so if you are looking for a thicker yogurt but use a low fat milk, you will simply add an envelope of unflavored gelatin or a half cup of  powdered milk to thicken your yogurt.
