Eating yogurt helps to ensure that good bacteria (in the yogurt) is keeping your gut flora in balance so that you can avoid conditions like a yeast infection, a weak immune system, and even some allergies. Making yogurt is easy and economical. Using quality milk will also ensure that the yogurt you make is more nutritious. You’ll need a thermometer, milk, yogurt, a pot, and an insulating container (which can simply be a foam box with a lid).
- Warm milk on low heat to 180 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Let the milk cool to 115 degrees Fahrenheit and stir in a tablespoon of plain yogurt for every liter of milk.
- Place overnight in a covered insulator, or just until it is set.
- Refrigerate in the morning. And enjoy when chilled.
Optional toppings: Honey, cut fruit, dried fruit, etc.
