Strep free / Dairy Free Yogurt

Postby dabaxter » Tue May 24, 2011 3:06 pm

Take almonds or coconut flakes and make milk. I prefer almond milk. Heat the milk to above 180 deg F. Allow to cool to 110 def F. Add approx. 1/3 tsp of Nature's Way Primadophilus Reuteri Powder( ... /4676?at=0) per quart. We usually take out a half cup, mix in the starter/probiotic, shake well and then mix that slurry back into the rest of the milk. Add approx 1 tsp of honey(or more) per quart. Incubate at 100-110 deg F for about 12 hours. Add flavoring. We like vanilla beans or peanut butter. Either strain or add 1 pouch of plain gelatin per quart. We usually add the gelatin if making "yogurt". We usually just strain if making "yogurt" cheese. Cheese takes a couple of days in the refrigerator. Chill in refrigerator for 5 hours or more for "yogurt".
This would be SCD / GAPS legal, with the exception of the FOS and potato starch in the probiotic. I assumed this would all be used up during incubation and decided to use it anyway.

We've used a yogurt maker in the past with lousy results. What I finally did was take a crock pot on low and a lamp dimmer to make a water bath of about 100-110 deg F. This works very well and allows us to make a gallon at a time with 4 mason jars.

Super! Thanks so much, dabaxter! I'm going to give it a go on the weekend and test out the temp on the dehydrator.
