Serves: 7 Oui Jars

Oui Yogurt is the “French Style” yogurt made by Yoplait – the yogurt is set directly in little glass pots creating a velvety creamy texture. I created a copycat of their Vanilla flavor last month (recipe here) – it was a huge hit, several people have requested the fruit bottom version. Hopefully you’ve been saving all your Qui jars, because you can reuse them to make yogurt in them.

I prepped the jars by peeling off the sticker labels then put some rubbing alcohol on a towel and rubbed off the rest of the sticker residue. I found the cutest silicone lids that fit the jars perfectly, they are called Blossom eCaps (Size Small), I bought them on Amazon (link here) and they come in different colors. You can also get plain plastic lids on the Oui website now (link here). If you try the recipe, be sure to post a picture on Facebook or comment here to let me know how it turned out.

Ingredients

  • 4½ Cups Whole Milk
  • 1 Jar of Strawberry Preserves, or fruit preserve of your choice
  • 2 Teaspoons Plain or Vanilla Oui Yogurt

Method

  • 1)

    Pour 4½ Cups Whole Milk into a saucepan, heat on low until it hits 190°F and hold it around that temperature for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the milk cool to 110°F. Use a kitchen thermometer to monitor the temperatures. You can place your pan into a cold water bath in the sink to help cool it faster. If a film forms on top of the milk, be sure to remove it or it will give your yogurt a stringy texture.

    *You can can skip this heating step if you’re using Ultra Pasteurized milk like Fairlife.

  • 2)

    Place 2 Teaspoons Oui Yogurt into a bowl and add 2 Tablespoons of the cooled milk – mix very well with a whisk, making sure there are no yogurt lumps – this ensures that you’ll end up with smooth yogurt. Pour the yogurt starter into the saucepan with the milk and stir well.  Avoid scraping the bottom of the pan, there’s usually milk solids stuck to the bottom that can give your yogurt a gritty texture.

  • 3)

    Place 1 rounded Tablespoon of Strawberry Preserves into 7 Oui jars, use a spoon to even out the preserves at the bottom of the jar. Ladle the mixture into your jars. Seal the jars with lids or cover each jar with homemade foil lids. Place 1 Cup of water into your Instant Pot and place the jars directly in the pot

  • 4)

    Press the Yogurt button and make sure it’s on the “Normal” setting, set the Instant Pot for 11 hours. After it’s done, give it a taste—if you prefer it more tart, you can incubate the yogurt for a few more hours.

    (This recipe can also be made in any Yogurt Maker)

  • 5)

    Refrigerate the jars for at least 6 hours before serving. Enjoy!
