Last year, I gave you my recipe for a homemade yogurt without yogurt maker. This year, I have perfected it by using my Thermomix and here is the adapted version. Of course, if you don’t have the machine, you can use last year recipe and still produce a lovely, creamy yogurt with just hob and oven. But the 2013 model is just a bit quicker!
- Fresh full fat milk 1L
- Live unsweetened yogurt 1 pot
- Powder semi skimmed milk 1 potful (use the empty pot!)
- Orange blossom water 2 Tbsp
Heat the milk for 20 min. at 80 degrees. Let it cool down to about 40 degrees (or touch warm if you have not got a jam thermometer).
Add the live yogurt, the powdered milk and the orange blossom. Mix 3 min at speed 3.
Re-heat at 37 degrees for 10 min. speed 2.
Transfer the mix into glass or ceramic jars and leave overnight in the oven heated at 40/45 degrees. You will need about 8 jars.
And that is it . You will have creamy, freshly churned yogurt ready for you in the morning! You can adjust the oven time depending on wether you like it more set or more liquid.
I take mine with a sprinkling of fruit and nuts and a dash of agave syrup. This yogurt will keep easily for a few days in the fridge.
