I’m a food lover and I love dairy product, but I should prepare it my self naturally with no additives or chemicals, using it in salad or eating raw yogurt fills up a lot of “food space” in my days. About the nutritious values of the yogurt, 100Gr of it contains a lot of calcium, vitamins and 59 calories. As I mentioned before let’s make it natural no additives or something else added, with the help of our famous InstaPot, besides, the most delicious yogurt recipes is the one made at home.
In your instant pot, you will use the yogurt function which helped me save a lot of time, preserve milk nutrients, by maintaining the temperature consistent.
So, if you are a beginner in making yogurt, don’t worry this recipe will make it easy for you and you will enjoy making yogurt indoor every single day, just be sure to follow up each step carefully and you will find out how much it easy and entertaining.
- Jars (just large enough to fit in easily in the instant pot)
- Yogurt (which will act as the activator or sample in simpler words)
- 1/2 gallon Milk (organic would give you the best kind of yogurt)
you have the choice, you can use the whole inside of the instant pot, or you can use your own jars. But I recommend using jars because it’s very easy to manipulate and yogurt is made directly inside them, so you don’t have to transfer anything.
Now you will use the steaming function in the instant pot, put one glass of water inside the instant pot, put as much jars inside as you can fill up the instant pot, don’t forget to make sure that your jars are heat resistant. Of course now you have to close your instant pot by securing the lid, and press the “steam” button on the instant pot and set the timer for 1 minute. The milk with the jars all of these will be steamed inside the instant pot.
it’s a very important step, after the steaming session ends, you need to cool the jars and the milk inside them. You have to cool the jars ( with milk inside of course), for one hour to 150 degrees Fahrenheit. If you don’t have a thermometer you can know that the desired temperature is achieved by holding the jars ( after one hour) and you will feel that the jars becomes warm.

now you have to add one tablespoon of yogurt in every jar, mix everything well. Now get back your jars into your instant pot, and the added yogurt will do it’s work by activating its yogurt functions.
This process will take around 8 hours, hit the yogurt function on your instant pot, you have to know that the longer you keep your jars inside the instant pot, the thicker your yogurt will become, after that take the jars out and refrigerate.
So there you are, in 9 to 10 hours you have a natural yogurt home made no additives no chemicals inside it, all this with the help of your instant pot.
