Homemade Yogurt with EasiYo | AD

If you follow the blog then you know that we are always looking for ways to swap out everyday items and become more sustainable, One area that we have been struggling is with yogurts. As a family of 4 we go through a lot of yogurts a week which adds up to a lot of empty yogurt pots.

However, with two children that don’t eat cheese or drink milk, they are an important source of calcium for my tribe. So, when I was asked to take a closer look at EasiYo – a homemade yogurt maker – I was curious enough to do exactly that.

WHAT IS EASIYO?

Founded in New Zealand more than 25 years ago, EasiYo is allows you to mix yogurt in your own home. Our starter kit contained a pink yogurt maker, a kilogram yogurt jar and a full set of instructions as to how to make your own EasiYo yogurt.

Making your yogurt could not be easier.

First up you need to half fill the EasiYo yogurt jar with room temperature. Add the sachet and shake well. Top up to the fill line with more room temperature water and you are ready to go.

Next you need to full the yogurt maker with boiling water to just above the insert. Put your yogurt jar inside and then secure the lid. In 8-12 hours, you have a full kilo of yogurt ready to enjoy. The longer you leave it the thicker your yogurt will be. Once you have your desired thickness – leaving it no longer than 24 hours – pop in the fridge and enjoy at your leisure.

Once made, your yogurt will last up to 2 weeks. If you can go that long without eating it all!

THE YOGURT

Each sachet makes an entire kilogram of yogurt and is made up of a combination of milk powder and live active cultures.

I was sent the plain greek style natural yogurt and the peach flavour greek style yogurt, both were delicious, and the volume lasted me a full week. I was really impressed with the smooth texture of the yogurt. I left it in the maker for around 15 hours which made for a lovely thick yogurt.

In short, I like how simple this was to use and the fact that each batch makes a massive amount of yogurt. No plugs or batteries, just smooth delicious yogurt that provides the equivalent of 10 of our usual yogurts in one single sachet.
