Sunday Spotlight: My New Yogurt Maker

Sunday Spotlight is a feature of a product that we use in our home that I want to share with my readers.  These are my personal opinions.  The products featured will be those that I have purchased unless other wise mentioned.  This is not a company sponsored review unless expressly told.



I love making homemade yogurt!

I have found that the kids and I like homemade yogurt much better than yogurt that you can buy in the store.  I also found that it is more consistently cheaper than waiting on our favorite yogurt to go on sell or a coupon.

I found that my homemade yogurt costs around 2 cent a oz. 

I did a lot of research and found a great recipe that I shared last year.  Click here for the recipe.  This is how I have been making yogurt fro the last year.  It may seem long, and it is, but well worth it in the end!

I only thing that I really hated was that I had to make a gallon at at time.  Even though we would eat a lot of yogurt, sometimes I gallon would go bad before we could sometimes get it all eaten. 

So I was pleasantly surprised when Grandmoma gave me a yogurt maker for Christmas!

I have been making yogurt non-stop!

What I love about it is that I can make yogurt without having to get out my big pots and heat my milk.  I can put in all my ingredients and turn on the yogurt maker to do it's work!  I usually set the yogurt maker as I go to bed, and in the morning we have fresh yogurt!

I love my new yogurt maker!  It is a Euro Cuisine Automatic Yogurt Maker.  This model even allows for you to make flavored yogurt.  I haven't got that adventurous yet.  But I plan on doing this pretty soon!

This is a great way to make really good nutritious snack for you and your kids.  It's one that is easy to make too!  I have found my oldest going to the frig and getting a yogurt with cookies on the counter. 

If you eat yogurt or smoothies in your house, I highly recommend that you try making your own yogurt with this recipe or try a yogurt maker like the Euro Cuisine Automatic Yogurt Maker.  I will dare to say that you will hate to go back to buying yogurt!

  1. I had a yogurt maker back in the day and loved it and, then, for some reason stopped. Don't know why. Have no excuse. But, this one looks like a great improvement and could very well get me started, again. Thanks for the review and for sharing... Come visit when you can... Oh, by the way, I gave you an award!
