This is a copycat recipe for the popular probiotic drink Yakult. It’s a delicious yogurt drink that has a refreshing citrus flavor and contains the exclusive strain Lactobacillus casei Shirota which is beneficial for your digestive system (learn more about the company here). Make your own for a few dollars using the Instant Pot with a Yogurt button (keeps it at a steady temp of ≈ 110°F) – I did the math and it comes out to be about $4.50 for 37 80ml servings. If you’re familiar with yogurt making, then you know that you need a starter culture to make more yogurt, that’s why Yakult is an ingredient in the recipe, it’s the only way to get their exclusive culture strain Lactobacillus casei Shirota. Yakult uses their own proprietary flavoring of citrus and vanillin to get that unique taste, I’ve replaced it with orange juice, lemon juice and vanilla extract to get the flavor pretty similar to the original.
