I love making my own yogurt. It is much healthier and cheaper. My favorite recipe costs $0.34 a serving (lots of super healthy additives for my son), but you can make “plain” yogurt for $0.14 a serving.
There are some great yogurt makers on sale right now!
Salton YM9 1-Quart Yogurt Maker is on sale for only $16.20! (free shipping with a $25 purchase or if you do a trial of Amazon Prime). It is rated 4.5 out of 5 stars. It makes 1 quart of yogurt.
Waring Pro YM350 Professional Yogurt Maker is on sale for $49.95 with free shipping (half off). It is also rated 4.5 out of 5 stars and makes (6) 8 ounce jars of yogurt or you can replace one or two of the 8 ounce jars with 16 ounce jars.
Miracle Milk Carton Yogurt Maker – (ME72) is on sale for $29.99 with free shipping and it is pretty neat. You make the yogurt using a one quart milk carton – so all you have to do is put the carton straight into the yogurt maker! It got 3.5 stars out of 5.
Making yogurt can be done without a yogurt maker. I used to make mine with my stockpot. Although, it is so much easier with my maker – I haven’t had a single ruined batch (I had 2 when I was doing it with the stockpot). For me, this is one of those things that is worth the “start up” cost – and it saves a lot of money (and is better for your health) in the long run 🙂
