Hi everyone, I'm a huge yogurt lover, but have not been able to find a store bought brand or recipe I'm happy with. Anyone have any good recommendations, or better yet a recipe for homemade?

    Hi ErannahBanana,
    My partner uses this recipe

    4 cups Milk Alternative (soy and almond work best)
    2 heaping tablespoons of tapioca starch
    2 non-dairy probiotic capsules
    1 tablespoon Organic Coconut Sugar (optional)

    I incubate in a soft cooler bag so when I began heating the milk I put the towels in the cooler with the heating pad on the bottom and turn it on high. Make sure you close the bag. Pour the milk, sugar and the starch into the pot. I found it better to put the milk and sugar in then have someone else pour the starch in while I stir. You will need to stir frequently to prevent the starch from settling into a lump on the bottom. Sometimes, if I'm making a batch just for smoothies I will omit the starch. Heat the milk to 180 degrees in a pot. Remove the pot from the heat. Let it sit with the cover on. Don't stir! When the temp is 110 then pour in the contents of your non-dairy probiotic capsules and stir. But don't stir much, just enough to distribute.

    Place your pot, with the lid on, inside the heated cooler bag. If you lay your towels so that one is on the bottom and sides of the pot and one sits on top of the pot when you close the lid you will have a good incubator. Turn the power down to medium and let it sit for 12-18 hours. The longer it sits the pungier it will smell.

    Once it's finished then place it in the refrigerator for 2 hours before consuming. Ta-dah!
