Lactose intolerant? Crave a good yoghurt without getting bloated, or just want a break from dairy?
Well look no further because we have developed an easy method of how to make soy yoghurt.
You will need the following equipment
- A yoghurt maker, or a jar large enough to hold one litre of soy milk.
- A stainless steel pot, or glass jug if planning to heat the milk in a microwave.
- Dairy thermometer.
- Mini measuring spoons
- Small Whisk
- An esky to put the jar in, or a blanket and a warm spot if you do not have a yoghurt maker.
To make your soy yoghurt you will need;
- 1 Litre of “Soy” milk
- 1 Tablespoon of Sugar
(acts as food for the culture)
- 1 dose of Non-Dairy Yoghurt Starter Culture, approx 1/64th teaspoon (a heaped drop)
(Up to 100 doses per sachet of culture).
Directions for making Soy Yoghurt
- Pour your soy milk into a 2 litre saucepan and clip on your thermometer.
- Add your starter culture to the soy milk and mix well to ensure the culture is evenly distributed.
- Mix the sugar into soy milk and warm to 40°C.
- Pour your milk into the yoghurt maker, or the jar you have selected.
- Maintain the milk mixture between 37° and 43° C for 8-12 hours, or even longer.
- Refrigerate your yoghurt for a couple of hours then serve whichever way you fancy!
