Instant Pot Duo Crisp Yogurt Recipe

  • Prep time: 5 minutes
  • Cook time: 9 hours
  • Serves: 16


  • 1 Gallon Ultra-Pasteurized Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Plain Yogurt with active cultures
  • 14 oz Can of Sweetened Condensed Milk (optional)


  • 1)

    Pour all the ingredients in to the Instant Pot, stir very well with a whisk to ensure that the mixture is completely smooth. (Under mixing the starter or sweetened condensed milk can cause grainy / stringy texture). Seal the Instant Pot using the Pressure Cooker lid.

    *You can also make yogurt directly in jars. Fill the jars with the mixture & seal with lids. Pour 1 Cup of water into the pot and stack the jars inside the pot (you don’t need the trivet)

  • 2)

    Press Sous Vide to select the Sous Vide Smart Program. Use the + / − Time buttons to adjust the temperature to 113°F. Use the + / − Time buttons to adjust the cook time to 9 Hours and Press Start. Refrigerate for at least 4 Hours before serving.

  • 3)

    If you want to make Greek Yogurt, pour the yogurt into the gallon yogurt strainer (purchase here). Let it strain in the refrigerator for 10 hours or overnight. Enjoy!

    Do you have a way to do this with the Instant Pot / Air Fryer Duo crisp? It doesn’t have a Yogurt button.

    I have never seen a yogurt recipe that doesn’t start with boiling the milk. Why don’t you heat it up first? I really want to try this but am nervous about ruining all that milk. I’m hoping to make this in a few hours if you see this.

      Hi Kiara, this recipe uses Ultra-Pasturized Milk which has already been heated to 280°F – that’s why you don’t have to heat it up first. Standard Pasteurized Milk is only heated to 161°F which isn’t hot enough for yogurt making, that’s why you have to heat pasteurized milk.

        Hi! Is the consistency of the instant pot yoghurt the same as the store shop one? Just made half galon and it’s just hot milk. I don’t know what I did wrong (I halved the recipe)

          Hello, yes it’s supposed be like store bought yogurt. Did you use Ultra-Pasteurized Milk? The milk also should not feel hot, if it does then it’s not on the correct setting, it should be just slightly warm otherwise it kills the yogurt culture.

    Hello we live in Canada and I have tried to look for Ultra-Pasturized Milk. I was wondering if this brand will work to make the yogurt. Its Natrel Organic Fine-Filtered 3.8% Milk. It does say pasteurized at the side of the carton.

      Hello, I’ve heard of many people using Natrel for cold start yogurt, I think it will work fine.

      Hi Elizabeth, I live in Canada too and I was wondering the same thing. I couldn’t find ultra-pasteurized milk either. How did your yogurt turn out with the Natrel?

        Natrel is ultra-pasteurized
