I’ve been an avid yogurt maker for 20+ years. Most people don’t realize it’s one of the easiest things you can make at home. With homemade yogurt, you can control all the ingredients and incubation time. A 4oz serving of 24-Hour Yogurt contains up to 350 billion CFU’s (colony forming units) of good bacteria – the typical probiotic pills usually have around 50 billion CFU’s per serving. Not only does this 24-Hour Yogurt aid in your gut health – it’s delicious! I use sweetened condensed milk in my recipe, it’s helps balance out the tartness and thickens the yogurt, the texture is very creamy.

Use Ultra-Pasteurized milk so you don’t have to fuss with boiling the milk ahead of time, I always use whole milk because it produces thicker yogurt, but you can use lower fat milk if you prefer. I also incubate the yogurt in single serving glass jars – it’s convenient and the texture also stays thicker and creamier.

24-Hour Probiotic Yogurt Recipe

  • Prep time: 5 minutes
  • Cook time: 24 hours
  • Serves: 16 - 4oz Cups



  • ½ Gallon Ultra-Pasteurized Whole Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Plain Yogurt with Live Active Cultures
  • 14 oz Can of Sweetened Condensed Milk


  • 1)

    In a large bowl, add 2 Tablespoons of Plain Yogurt then pour in about 1/4 of the milk, whisk extremely well. Then add the can of Sweetened Condensed Milk and the rest of the ½ Gallon of Milk and whisk well.

    *Optional: Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve to ensure an ultra smooth texture

  • 2)

    Fill the glass jars with the mixture, seal the yogurt jar lids. Add 1 Cup of Water to the Instant Pot, stack the jars directly in the pot (you don’t need a trivet). Seal the Instant Pot lid and choose the Yogurt setting on Normal/Medium and choose 24 Hours. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving. Enjoy!

    * You can also pour the mixture directly into the Instant Pot, just don’t add any water if you want to incubate the yogurt directly in the pot.

    * For 8-6oz Jars or 12-4oz Jars: Use 5½ Cups Milk, 1½ Tablespoon of Plain Yogurt and ¾ Cup Sweetened Condensed Milk
