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.
