Yoghurt

Yoghurt

Such a great invention! And even better is the one made at home. You are 100% sure of what is inside. The recipe that follows is Lactose and allergy free one; a very light and easy to digest version. I hope you will enjoy it!

  • 2 lt of lactose FREE milk
  • 3 tablespoon of Activia yogurt


Instructions

  • Bring the milk to boil. Then reduce the heat to the minimum. Allow it to boil again, and once more remove the foam from the top and discard it. Repeat this operation for 6-7 times. This way, we are eliminating milk allergy possibilities.
  • Let it cool down till it reaches approximately 40 degrees C. Add the 3 tablespoons of Activia yoghurt, and mix with the help of a fork or hand mixer.
  • Strain and pour into glasses or terracotta yogurt pots. Seal them and place them in a tray, covered with a towel. Cover the pots also with a towel, and place the tray in the oven which has been pre-heated at a temperature of 35 degrees C. Let it stay there for 12 hours. Keep in the fridge. Enjoy!

Hint

If you prepare your yoghurt in the morning, then you can have enough time to put them in the oven and then at night in the fridge. Accordingly, when you wake up the next morning, the yoghurt is ready for breakfast!

Note

You don't need to put them in the oven in the summer, because the weather is hot anyway. Just cover them with the towels and let them stand for 12 hours on a table in the kitchen
