I have been making my own homemade yogurt for a while but I have never seen a recipe as easy as this one! I was visiting some friends from Macedonia and one of them asked me to try this wonderful yogurt/kefir concoction that he has just made - Oh was it delicious! naturally sweet and smooth and slightly effervescent - yes effervescent.
The only thing is that it can only be made here in the summer (you can make it year round if you live in a place with 80F temperature).
This recipe takes less than a minute to prepare, then you need to wait overnight for the yogurt live cultures to multiply.
- 1 liter of milk (I used 1% Organic for a low fat version)
- 1 cup of Greek yogurt (or any plain unsweetened yogurt)
- 1/2 cup of plain unsweetened Kefir
Put all ingredients is a jar with a tight lid. Shake until well combine. Leave in a warm place (80F) for 12 to 24 hours (I left mine in the garage overnight). And you are done!
I told you it was easy! Enjoy!
Note: To accelerate it even farther you can warm the milk a little - do not let it build just warm - you should be able to put your finger in and not get burned.
