NOTES : You can substitute 4 cups skim milk and 1/3 cup powdered milk for the whole milk in this recipe.


The cultures can be from a batch of plain homemade yogurt you have made or from store purchased yogurt with live cultures. OR you can use 5 grams of dried yogurt culture (starter) which you can purchase either online or at natural foods grocery stores.


Pre-cook fresh fruits, because if you add fresh fruit to the milk it may cause it to curdle
