How to Make Yogurt in Your Slow Cooker

In addition to homeschooling we also have a small farm (Triple - A - Farm). And on that farm we have some dairy goats...EEE II EEE II OO! haha So we get lots of fresh milk. After a while you start running out of room for said milk and get creative. Hence this recipe for Crockpot Yogurt!

  • 1/2 gallon of milk either cow or goat
  • 1 pkg of jello in favorite flavor (*see alternative below)
  • 1/2 c. Yogurt starter like Dannon plain yogurt or you can also purchase starters at Culturesforhealth.com ( we like the non-dairy because we have family with an allergy to cow milk.)


How To...

  • In blender, mix starter and milk. Pour into crockpot and turn to warm setting. If you don't have the warm setting just use low but watch closely to avoid scorching milk.
  • After milk is heated to around 110 degrees mix in jello WELL!
  • Turn off crockpot and wrap with heavy towel to keep warm or pour into containers and place in a cooler of very hot water. Let set for 6-8 hrs. Then you will have yogurt!
  • Please Note:  Homemade yogurt is not as thick as store bought yogurt.
