Tips For Making Yoghurt In The Thermomix

Use Full Cream Milk

This results in a thicker yoghurt than skim milk.

 

Milk Powder

Milk powder helps to thicken the yoghurt.

 

Use A High Quality Pot Set Yoghurt As The Starter

We recommend using a high quality pot set yoghurt (like Jalna) as it needs to have active cultures. Once you’ve made you first batch of yoghurt, you can reserve 100g to use as the starter for the next batch.

 

Varying The Amount Of Sugar

In this recipe we use 40g caster sugar. You can reduce this amount if you prefer a less sweet yoghurt. You can also increase it if you prefer a sweeter yoghurt. It might take a few batches to work out the amount of sugar you like.

 

Keep The Yoghurt Warm For 12 Hours

In order for your yoghurt to be thick and creamy, it needs to be kept warm for 12 hours. I recommend warming a ThermoServer  with boiling water, then pouring out the water and drying it thoroughly before pouring in the yoghurt. I like to then wrap my ThermoServer in a large blanket and place it into a warm room (I use the laundry). The longer the yoghurt is left out of the fridge, the more acidic it will taste. I find that 12 hours is perfect (if you live in a hot climate, 8-10 hours is probably sufficient).

 

Store In An Airtight Container In The Fridge

The yoghurt will continue to thicken up to 24 hours after it’s refrigerated.

 

Doubling The Recipe

This recipe can easily be doubled.

  1. Hello. I have a TM5. Is it possible to leave the yoghurt in the TM to keep warm on the lowest heat all night, instead of transferring it to the thermoserver?. Thanks Ali

      Hi Ali, you really need to store it in a ThermoServer or a food warmer and keep it warm for the entire duration (if it isn’t kept warm enough it wont thicken). xx

  2. Hi,
    Have you made coconut yoghurt and how would I go about making it?
    My husband and I have gone off milk because of sinus issues and buy coconut yoghurt which is not cheap.
    Cheers Jill

    Best thermomix yoghurt recipe!! And so tasty, easy, quick and cheap to make! Thanks for a great recipe.

    I had a neglected EasiYo yoghurt maker in my cupboard and put the finished yoghurt into the provided jar. It is great for insulation. No towel or cover needed.

        Hi Emma, I haven’t used an easiyo thermos so I’m not sure sorry. I’ve just been using my ThermoServer. Andyes I do put boiling water into it first to warm it up (although I live in Victoria so it can get pretty cold!).

    Hi Girls,
    Yesterday I made my first batch of vanilla yoghurt. It was simple and tastes better than any bought product that I have tasted. With 5 grandkids age under 7, I guess l’ll be making loads more. Very little added sugar which is a big plus. Thanks a lot.

  6. I’ve made this recipe a few times without issue. However this time, it’s all cracked on top, and when i scoop it, it’s full of liquid, and takes a bit sour. Not sure what went wrong.

  7. This is the best yoghurt! Thank you for the recipe. Just wondering – if you double the quantity, do you need to double the cooking time?

      Hi Elsie, you wont need to double the cooking time, I’d start by trying an extra 6 minutes, checking it and seeing if it needs a few more. xx

      Hi John, you probably wont need to completely double the cooking time, but it will definitely need a few more minutes! Try an extra 6 minutes or so and then see if it needs longer.

  8. This yoghurt is so good! I have no idea why I waited so long to start making my own (had thermi probably 6 years 🤦‍♀️). Once it’s done in thermi I’ve been putting it in the containers and in to my dehydrator on the yoghurt setting for about 7-8 hours. So thick and creamy yummmmmm

  9. Hi. Can you tell me why I get a yeasty sort of smell a few days after I make the yoghurt? I’ve tried putting yoghurt in different containers but it makes no difference. It still tastes fine but the odour is off putting.

  10. Made your Pot Set Yoghurt yesterday and it is amazing and so delicious and easy to make. I used Devondale long life milk and Jalna Greek pot set for my culture. Thanks so much for this recipe.

      Hmm good question! I haven’t added protein powder to this – but I’ll leave your comment here in case someone else has!

  12. I made mine Tuesday and unfortunately it’s really runny. Is there anything I can do now to thicken it up?

      Hi Rebekah, unfortunately there’s not really anything you can do now if it’s runny. Have a read through the tips in our post and see if there’s anything you could do differently to help it set better next time (I’d suggest that maybe the temperature could have been too cool for it set during the 12 hours).
