How to Make Easy, Homemade Yogurt
Looking to make delicious yogurt for a fraction of the cost? Here is how my husband makes homemade yogurt in five easy steps!
- 1/2 gallon of milk
- 1/4 cup of yogurt
That’s all of them. You will also need a thermometer, though once he did the recipe a few times, he learned to just eyeball the temperature and his yogurt has always come out perfect!

- Pour about a half gallon of milk in a pot.
- Heat the pot of milk on medium until it reaches just under 200 degrees. Remember to stir it occasionally so it does not stick to the bottom of the pot.
So easy, and so delicious!
The yogurt will taste like plain yogurt, but you can throw in whatever sweeteners you like. We have had great results with mixing in maple syrup, jam, fresh fruit, granola, and applesauce. Let us know what some of your favorite add-ins are!
