1 x 750ml full fat Lewis Road Creamery Organic milk
3 tablespoons natural unsweetened yoghurt

Suggested Variables

Vanilla + Cinnamon: 1 tsp vanilla essence, 1 tsp cinnamon, 2 teaspoons manuka honey
Passionfruit: just add passionfruit pulp – yum
Feijoa: add chopped feijoa just before serving


Heat the milk in a pot and gently bring to the boil before turning off the heat.  Take the milk off the heat and leave to cool until it reaches 45-50 degrees.  I used a kitchen thermometer for this but if you don’t own one, it’s around 10-12 minutes.

Whisk in the yoghurt until combined with the milk.

Pour the yoghurt into a thermos or plastic container.  I put mine back into the Lewis Road milk bottle! Wrap up in hand towels and place in the hotwater cupboard for 8 hours, or overnight.

You’ll then have your organic yoghurt!  Mine came out lovely and smooth, but if yours is a little grainy pour into a bowl and whisk until smooth.

You can easily make your own flavours and I’ve tried the following:
