Natasha (founder of Natren probiotics) recently shared this video with me, and I had to pass it on to all of you! It’s a video “how-to” in which Natasha shows the process of making homemade yogurt using the Natren probiotic yogurt starter – start to finish! She also shares some delicious, simple, and healthy yogurt recipes.
If you’re more of a visual person, this is a FABULOUS resource to have, from someone who used to supply numerous royal families with their yogurt!:
Note: If you don’t have an oven that can run at 110F, another method I’ve used it to transfer the yogurt to a glass dish or quart jar with the lid on. Then wrap the dish/jar in a tea towel and place it in your oven with the just the oven light on. Place it near the light if you can. This will give a good set to your yogurt by the time you wake up the next morning. Then put it straight into the fridge.
Did I mention that this starter makes a simply beautiful-tasting yogurt? And this potent probiotic strain is a great way to get food-based probiotics. I have lots of posts on my blog for how to culture yogurt using various methods, and then afterwards how to make cheese, mayo, sauces/dips and my own raw nutrient shake from that yogurt.
We carry Natren’s probiotic yogurt starter in the shoppe, and you can find it here if you’re interested in giving this homemade yogurt a try. It’s an easy and delicious way to add probiotics to your diet!
