La Fermière’s Vanilla Yogurt is my favorite yogurt, the texture is super creamy and smooth. La Fermière is a family owned company that started in the South of France, they’ve started to expand to the U.S., but it’s still not widely available,  I get mine from Central Market in Austin, Tx – but no worries if can’t get a hold of a jar, I’ve made a copycat recipe of their amazing yogurt.

French-style potted yogurt is individually cultured in clay or glass pots to preserve the thick, creamy texture. La Fermière has cream in their yogurt, that’s what makes their yogurt so unique from other companies.

It’s very delicious plain, but you can top with your favorite berries, fruit curd or granola.  If you’re a fan of La Fermière Yogurt that come in the adorable clay pots, you will love this easy copycat recipe!

I used the new Instant Pot Pro to make this batch of  yogurt.  You can use any Instant Pot model that has a Yogurt Button.Instant Pot ProInstant Pot French-Style Yogurt Recipe (Copycat of La Fermière Yogurt)
