I usually make my yogurt at home by using yogurt maker. I like it plain, my husband likes it sweet with honey, my kids like it with fruit. We all love yogurt.
Its pretty easy actually if you have a yogurt maker. You just heat the milk up to 180 degree then let it cool down to 110-115 degree before you put the starter. Pour in the small jars let it in the yogurt maker for 8 hours at least before it becomes yogurt.
So heating the milk over the stove top on a pot is an old way that I used to do. I now use the glass jar and heat it in the microwave which I don't have to worry about it going to boil over or scorch. I got this short cut from reading the review on Amazon.com anyhow I'll include the model that I use on my Amazon link Yogurt maker and Thermometer
The health benefits of yogurt for me is it helps me regulate. We also put some in our smoothies and sometimes in baking.
So let see how easy to make it at home and cleaning is also a breeze.
Big glass Jar ( that can hold enough milk)
Starter ( I use store bought yogurt maker)
These are my links for the products.
I like this model there is option for I want to make more yogurt I can just use bigger jar that have a bigger dome cover.
I use 36 oz milk + starter will add to milk after heating later.
( my yogurt maker makes 7-6 oz jars I also put the maker on the jar so it easy every time I make I don't have to measure just pour the milk to the mark)
Put the milk in the big jar and heat it and bring the temperature up to 180 degree by heating 2 minutes interval in the microwave until it reaches the desire temperature.
Once it heat up to 180. I take it to cool down in the cool water tub. Mine takes like 8 mins. If you want it faster you can put ice on your tub so it could take only 5 mins.
Let it cool down to 110 or 115 then put the starter mix well and this is the time if you want to sweeten up with honey then pour it into the small jars and let it do the magic in the yogurt maker for 8 hours.
Then enjoy fresh for cool them in the fridge enjoy it cool.
Again have you have a short cut on doing your favorite food? Leave me questions or comment below and if you like it please share. Thank you for stopping by.

Hi everyone welcome back.
I am still riding a bike two times a week. It becomes a tiny bitty easier but still some sluggish. It wasn't easy when I first started because it was totally new thing that I have to get used to the road and traffic flow not even counting all the pain going uphills.
I leanrt some traffic lights discreminate you ( "you" I meant bikes not cars). I was waiting on the turning lane which just kept me waiting and waiting and after two circles I knew that something was wrong, so I learnt to take the pedestrain route and use the crosswalk light in some intersection instead.
My body still somewhat looks the same but I have more energy than before. When I got home I would get more things done than I would have done.
At the end of the day you sleep well then you know you did something good.
However my new transportation arrangement did not stop us from having a second car. Yup you heard that right we got a NEW CAR !!
It is used but new to us , unfornuately it solved one problem but created another problem. This definately put us back to where we were before.
That is our life so far but it is not over yet. I won't give up. we will wait and see what is going to happen next.
How do you keep yourself going when you face obstacles?
