Goat milk yogurt with orange blossom – not just for kids!

Recently, I have been switching to goat milk for my family yogurt making and here it is, a very easy treat!

Ingredients list:

  • Fresh full fat goat milk 1L
  • Live unsweetened yogurt 1 pot
  • Powder semi skimmed milk 1 potful (use the empty pot above!)
  • Orange blossom water 2 Tbsp

Use the milk at room temperature. If it is fresh and pasteurised, there is no need to heat it.

Add the live yogurt, the powdered milk and the orange blossom water. Mix it all in, avoiding all lumps, and pour in one large pot or individual terracotta or glass jars.

Leave overnight into a warm oven on lowest setting (usually 40 degrees) or use a steamer with a yogurt setting and leave for 8 hours. I use the Magimix steamer and leave it overnight to wake up to deliciously creamy  set yogurt.

You can add berries, jam or honey to this but I just prefer it straight with nothing added, just the freshness of the milk and the orange blossom water.

Obviously, you can do the same recipe still with organic whole cows milk.

Nutrition notes: Goat milk is generally better digested than cows milk and is part of a traditional Mediterranean diet in the shape of both cheese and yogurt. Try and choose organic milk for it contains less antibiotics and hormones than non-organic ones.
