The yoghurt maker is such a simple design and so easy to use. All you do is mix the packet with some water and stand in hot water essentially. It’s the canister that does all the hard work. I’ve been making it at night so that in the morning I have a fresh tub of yoghurt. And once it’s made, it stays in the same tub so you don’t have to worry about transferring it for storage; it just goes straight in the fridge. And while I’m on storage, the canister is only about the height of a loaf of bread, so it’s no trouble to find a spot for it when it’s not being used, and the storage tub is safe for the dishwasher.
There are a number of different flavours but I think my favourite is the strawberry. And each flavour packet is between $3-5 which makes 1kg of yoghurt, so it’s much cheaper than the tubs you buy in the supermarkets.
What I like about this is that, once my daughter gets a little older, I can teach her about how it’s made (might have to research that one myself) and the difference between fresh food and processed. There’s also loads of recipes on their website for drinks, deserts and meals that I plan on trying. The Lemon Yoghurt Sherbet sounds delicious!
The only problem is that the yoghurt takes so good, we’ll probably end up eating more yoghurt than ever!
