Homemade Yogurt

Homemade yogurt made with a2 Milk® is much easier than you might think!

Once you’re able to get through your first batch, simply use a bit of the leftovers to start your next which also makes the process a whole lot easier and inexpensive.

If you don’t eat yogurt enough to justify the investment, you can use a slow-cooker where you only have to preheat it beforehand and turn it off when you go to use it to make it work as an incubator.



  • 1/2 gallon of a2 Milk® Whole
  • Powdered yogurt culture (follow manufacturer’s instructions for quantities)


  • Slow-cooker or  yogurt maker
  • Mason jars (or small containers) that fit inside incubator
  • Large pot
  • Spatula
  • Thermometer
  • Ladle


Simply follow the step-by-step instructions below!


Step 1

Heat your whole milk over medium to low heat until it starts to boil, stirring occasionally to prevent skin and foam forming on top.

Step 2

Remove the pot from heat and allow the milk to cool until it reaches 100ºF.

Step 5

Set the temperature to 110°F and incubate for about 5 hours or overnight. The longer you keep it in, the thicker and more tart your yogurt ends up.
