Making Yogurt Video Class

how to make yogurt video

Making yogurt is easier than you think!

But, if you are like me, it is easier to do something after you see someone else do it! I can read a recipe and do it, but if I can watch someone, it gives me more confidence that I am doing it correctly. Making yogurt is no different – I had a friend who showed me how to make yogurt the first time! Hopefully, this video tutorial will help give you the confidence to try new things!

Making yogurt is economical and best of all, if you have raw milk available, you can even make yogurt with it!

Because yogurt is such a popular food and is full of probiotics, it is a wonderful addition to any diet. Populating your gut with “good” bacterial is one of the easiest things to do to ensure good health. And, because yogurt is so full of probiotics, it is easily digetible. In fact, many people who are unable to tolerate milk can eat yogurt!

Making yogurt is shown step by step in the following video. When making yogurt, I use a recipe  in which the milk is heated to 180F. In making raw milk yogurt, follow the steps below but only heat the milk to 100F and then add your yogurt starter. I have found the raw milk yogurt to be a bit runny but it works great in smoothies!


Making Homemade Yogurt


1 gallon whole, preferably raw
1/2 c cultured plain yogurt starter – purchased starter (from my affiliate -where to buy starter) or store bought yogurt with active cultures


1. Heat milk over medium heat to 180F. Allow milk to cool to 115F – 120F. I place the pot of milk into a sink of cold water to speed the cooling process.

2. Once the milk has cooled, add starter and stir well.

3. Pour into  jars.

4. Place them in an insulated cooler and leave overnight or wrap the jars in a bath towel and place in a warm, out of the way place for 6 – 12 hours.

5. Unwrap the jars and refrigerate. The yogurt will separate if not chilled before using.

**** Save 1/2 c. to start your next batch.


Warning: Your yogurt consumption will probably increase now that you know how easy and economical it is to make!
