Daily Health Tips: Recipe For And Storage Of Yoghurt

Q: Good evening ma’am. Thanks for your lecture on how to make yoghurt. Please after making the yoghurt, how long will it stay in the fridge or freezer before it goes sour or should it be stored the way you taught on how to store milk or should it be consumed immediately after preparation? Thanks

A: I’ve received a lot of questions about the recipe for yoghurt and its usefulness ever since the 3rd season of our show aired and I had shown one other recipe for yoghurt.

I’ll share with you my personal easy-peasy recipe for yoghurt. This recipe uses powdered milk.

Mix one part of milk to four parts of warm water (you could use a measuring cup and this means one measuring cup of milk will be mixed with four measuring cups of warm water; if you use a bowl, then one bowl of milk to four bowls of milk etc.). Add a quarter measure (cup, bowl or whatever is your measure) of already made yoghurt that has probiotics in it to the mixture. This could be store bought yoghurt or some that you have stored from the last batch of yoghurt you made. Stir the mixture and cover in an airtight container for about 4 to 8 hours. I usually leave mine overnight. Give a final mix and there you’ve got it, your own delicious home-made yoghurt.
Note that I didn’t add sugar. I usually don’t. If you must, add a little. Otherwise, cutting up some apples into it and/or adding some nice crunchy nuts makes this taste even more delicious. Remember that you can also blend this up with some fruits and make a delicious smoothie 😀 I feel hungry already ;D

Now, how to store…just like for milk: Do not store on the fridge door. Store at the back of the fridge where it is coldest. Be sure to finish it up within three days and do not store close to strong smelling foods as they very readily take on those smells…imagine drinking onion-flavoured yoghurt 😀 Disgusting. Can you store in the freezer? Well, yes. But freezing gives yoghurt a different texture when it thaws. You may not like it. If you don’t mind though, then hey, freeze away 🙂

Have a great night y’all 😀
