I like yoghurt. Flavoured. Plain. With currants. With honey. With nuts. But for some reason, I never eat much in any week. It was that last part that meant, when a friend got a yoghurt maker and began waxing lyrical about it, I was excited for her but with no plans to bandwagon hop.
Then… I saw one on special. Love a good special. And I’d just hit a saving goal. And the yoghurt mix that goes in the magic maker was half price… so, you know.
Today I made my first batch of yoghurt. Blueberry. Sooooo… very… creamy… Scrumptious! Now I just have to eat an entire kilo of it. They say it lasts for two weeks so that’s about small 5 commercial tubs in two weeks… we’ll see.
I do, of course, like the idea that I’m not going to have to recycle any plastic tubs when I’ve eaten it. In fact, I like that a lot.
I also liked how simple it was to make (essentially; add water and shake, then stand jar in insulated container full of hot water for 8 hrs).
And being live culture you can use part of the current batch to make the next one, which frees you from buying too many of the powder sachets! Awesome.
One of my colleagues has yoghurt every day… maybe I can trade half my batch with her?… mind you, given how much yoghurt she eats, I should probably just recommend the yoghurt maker!
