What is Vietnamese Yogurt? Yogurt has been made for thousands of years, but Vietnamese people only started making yogurt a little over a century ago when it was introduced to them by the French during their occupation. There wasn’t fresh milk readily available in Vietnam so they used sweetened condensed milk, the yogurt would turn out sweet, tart and creamy. So the two things that make Vietnamese yogurt distinct is the use of sweetened condensed milk and incubating in single serving jars which protects the thick creamy texture. This yogurt recipe is made using a fool proof no-boil method with Ultra Pasteurized, you can make 3 flavors in one batch – Original, Pandan and Ube!

You can usually find Pandan (order here) and Ube (order here) flavoring at any Vietnamese market. I also added McCormick Coconut Extract to the ube yogurt because those two flavors go hand in hand.

Ingredients

Method

  • 1)

    In a large bowl, add ⅓ Cup Plain Yogurt and ¼ Cup Ultra-Pasteurized Milk and stir with a whisk very well until it’s smooth.  Add 14 oz can of Sweetened Condensed Milk and another ¼ Cup Ultra-Pasteurized Milk and stir with a whisk until it’s well combined and extremely smooth.  Add the rest of the 6 Cups of Ultra-Pasteurized Milk, stir until it’s smooth and homogenous. I mix it this way to ensure the yogurt turns out smooth, if the yogurt and sweetened condensed milk are not mixed in well you will have grainy yogurt. 

  • 2)

    Measure out 2⅔ Cups of the mixture, add ¼ Teaspoon Pandan Flavoring and stir well – pour into yogurt jars.  Measure out 2⅔ Cups of the mixture, add ¼ Teaspoon Ube Flavoring,  ¼  Teaspoon Coconut Extract and stir well – pour into yogurt jars.  Pour the plain mixture into yogurt jars – put lids on all the yogurt jars.  Add 1 Cup of Water to the Instant Pot and stack the jars into the pot (you don’t need a trivet).  

  • 3)

    Choose the Yogurt button, set for:

    9 Hours for sweet
    13 Hours for tart
    18 Hours for more tart

    When it’s done, refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.  Enjoy!
