Yummy & Easy Yogurt Recipe

DH got me a yogurt maker for my birthday. Before that I would just use my stock pot and rice packs to keep the yogurt at the right incubating temp, but I must say, it is super easy to put it in the maker and be done with it! The first steps are still the same so I can’t say it saves a ton of time. The great things about the yogurt maker is that I can make them in single serving jars (that have an expiration on top) and I can mix everything in from the beginning so I don’t have to do it when I am serving the yogurt.

I have a super healthy (and yummy) recipe that I have perfected for DS. This is also pretty thrifty when you are comparing it to store bought yogurt.

As most of you know, I do not feed meat to DS (and we do not eat much of it ourselves) so the nutritional content of his foods are very important to me. Whenever I come up with a new recipe I also figure the nutritional content.

RECIPE

42 oz whole milk ($0.98)
1 Tbs Blackstrap Molasses ($0.20)
1 Cup Berries- (I use a marionberry, blueberry, and raspberry mix ($0.31)
1/4 Cup Dry Milk ($0.28)
2 Tbsp Flax Meal ($0.07)
2 Tbsp Raw Wheat Germ ($0.06)
1 Package Yogurt Starter ($0.50)

1) Add everything except for the yogurt starter into a pan and scald it (until there are bubbles where the milk meets the pan) stirring constantly

2) Wait for it to cool to 90-110 degrees F and then add the yogurt starter

3) Add it to the yogurt jars (or jar if you are using the stock pot method of incubating)

4) Incubate for 4-12 hours. It should be firm. To incubate using a stock pot put the jar in the center and wrap it in heated rice packs, cover and let sit

5) Refrigerate at least one hour before eating

NUTRITIONAL CONTENT

This makes (7) 6 oz servings, the nutritional content is per serving and the vitamin % is for an adult:

Calories = 150
Fat Calories = 59

Protein = 8 grams

Vitamin A = 5%
Vitamin C = 6%
Calcium = 22%
Vitamin D = 20%
Iron = 3%
Magnesium = 1%
Phosphorus = 2%
Riboflavin = 3%

This costs $0.34 per serving.
