Soygurt

I'm thinking of getting a yogurt making machine to make my own soygurt. I'm tired of giving Nancy all my money...

Anyone have any tips? Any machines they like better than others??

  1. I think you can adapt this and use soy milk instead of cow's milk. The powdered milk is not necessary as I've made it without. The results (I tried it twice and used cow's milk both times) were more tart than storebought, and not as thick, so your mileage may vary. It's easy enough to do, that's for sure.

    I was told that you should only incubate it the length of time recommended, because it gets tarter the longer you leave it.
    If I was more dedicated to this, I probably could have honed it down to a really great yogurt...but...sigh...I'm so lazy.
    Let us know if you try it!

  2. Oops...forgot to say that I'm cheap as well, which is why I tried making it on my own rather than buy a machine. It's simple enough to do it though, that's for sure.
    That's all I got.
    Carry on.

  3. I love my soy yogurt maker, which is really just a plastic container that heats up. I purchased it at a garage sale last year for $1, and at the time I had a choice between one with a large space for a large jar, and one with several small containers. I am glad that I made the the large container choice, because it makes more, and there are less dishes to do afterwards. The homemade soy yogurt is so yummy, so much better than store-bought and it's very easy to make. Good luck on your soy yogurt maker search!

  4. If you decide to get a machine and make your own at home, let us know how you make out. I'm really curious. You could post pictures!

  5. I have a recipe for Soygurt in GOV. It's easy to make in your oven... but I bet a yogurt maker works better... hmmmmmmmmmm.

  7. Heya!

    I find using a 'fatty' soymilk works much better..more likely to get it somewhat solid.. Vitasoy seemed the best option when we experimented years ago.

    I've got this weird little yogurt maker here too..never used it.

    Watch out for the cultures tho, apparently a number of them have dairy in them to begin with.
