How to Make Homemade Yogurt – No Machine Required

Yogurt is a delicious and nutritious food that is enjoyed all over the world. While many people buy yogurt at the grocery store, making your own yogurt at home is a simple and cost-effective way to enjoy this tasty treat. In this article, we will discuss how to make homemade yogurt without a machine.


  • 4 cups of whole milk
  • ¼ cup of plain yogurt with live and active cultures


  1. Heat the milk: In a large saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat until it reaches a temperature of 180°F. Stir the milk occasionally to prevent scorching.
  2. Cool the milk: Once the milk reaches 180°F, remove the saucepan from heat and let it cool until it reaches a temperature of 110°F.
  3. Add the yogurt: In a separate bowl, mix the ¼ cup of plain yogurt with a small amount of the warm milk to thin it out. Then, add the thinned yogurt to the saucepan of warm milk and stir gently until the yogurt is fully incorporated.
  4. Incubate the yogurt: Pour the mixture into a large jar or container with a lid. Place the container in a warm location, such as an oven with the light on, or a warm spot on your countertop. Let the yogurt incubate for 6 to 12 hours, or until it reaches your desired thickness.
  5. Chill the yogurt: Once the yogurt has incubated, place it in the refrigerator to chill. This will stop the fermentation process and help the yogurt to thicken further.
  6. Enjoy! Your homemade yogurt is now ready to eat. You can add fruit, honey, granola, or any other toppings you like to customize the flavor.

Making homemade yogurt is a simple process that requires just a few basic ingredients and no special equipment. By making your own yogurt at home, you can save money, control the ingredients, and enjoy the fresh and delicious taste of homemade yogurt anytime. Give it a try and see how easy and rewarding it can be!
