Love this recipe. I put a cup of the plain yoghurt aside each time for the next batch. I’ve found about 18hrs to set is the sweet spot if you want a really thick yoghurt. Adding the fruit definitely thinned it out a lot which I didn’t like so now I make fruit bottoms separately then add the finished yoghurt on top.

Does it have to be full cream milk ? Can it be skimmed or lactose free

Do you need the lip off for the start of the recipe? And does it work with standard full cream milk, please?

Fantastic recipe. So easy to do

I also added the powder from a probiotic capsule when I added the cultured yoghurt and milk powder

It took 7-8 hours to set

Great result
