Homemade yogurt, made in the slow cooker.

Homemade yogurt


  • ½ gallon of whole organic milk or any milk that you prefer
  • ½ cup of plain yogurt of your choice
  • 2 tsp gelatin


  • Pour milk into crockpot.
  • Cover and heat on low for 2.5 hours. Do not let boil.
  • Then turn off crockpot, unplug, and with the lid on, let sit for 3 hours.
  • Next whisk in yogurt of your choice and gelatin.
  • Take out the insert and wrap with a bath towel.
  • Place in a cold oven (not turned on) and let sit for 8-12 hours.
  • Voila, the cultures have done their job and you have yogurt.
  • Pour finished product into desired container and store in refrigerator. I used glass mason jars.


If you want flavored yogurt or sweetened, mix in pureed fruit, stevia, honey, or maple syrup.
