Homemade Yogurt

Each week, I've been tackling multiple pins from my growing Pinterest boards- some are ok, some need "tweaking" and some are fabulous, like this homemade yogurt.

I looked at multiple methods and recipes and settled on this crockpot version
instructions  were easy to follow and spot on:)

I started at 4pm (start time is important!) with a 1/2 gallon of organic whole milk...

...poured the milk into my crockpot, set to low for 2 1/2 hours and then unplugged and allowed to rest for an additional 3 hours...

...then took a cup of milk from the crockpot, added 1 cup of plain, whole milk yogurt, gently combined and returned the mixture to the crockpot...

...then covered the crockpot with 2 large towels and left in the garage overnight (8-12 hrs) to incubate.

At approx 9:30 the next morning I unwrapped my homemade yogurt...

...and opted to strain the yogurt through cheesecloth to achieve a thicker consistency...

 ...and then poured yogurt into a small tub & added a mango puree 
(used frozen mango & a swirl of maple syrup)... achieve a DIY YoBaby meal:)

Rosebud could tell this wasn't as sweet as the YoBaby so I've been tweaking- 
she liked my homemade version even better with some mashed banana added to the mix:)

The finished yogurt will keep for 7-10 days & don't forget to keep 1 cup as a starter for your next batch!
