Goat's Milk Yogurt

So my friend over at Life on the Funny Farm gave me a gallon zip lock bag full of fresh goat's milk this week.

Since I have been making yogurt why not make goat's milk yogurt right?

So same low tech apparatus, heating pad, cake plate dome, and pie plate.

I bought my yogurt start at Central Market in San Antonio and I threw the little tub away before I could get a picture but it was just plain goat's milk yogurt.

This time I will be saving 1/4 of this batch to use for future batches.

I added a cup of fresh blueberries and a good tablespoon of honey and a splash of vanilla.

I had it for supper last night and breakfast this morning it is so smooth and creamy and not goaty at all.


1 Quart Milk (any kind)
1/4 cup plain yogurt


If you don't have a yogurt maker like me use a heating pad or a crock pot.  You want the milk and yogurt to be mixed well and then it needs to stay around 110 degrees for 24 hours.  My heating pad has an auto off so it only stays on for three hours and so every time I think about it I turn it back on.  If you have something that would stay at that constant 110 then it shouldn't take 24 hours.

  1. So glad it turned out well! You're inspiring me to get out my yogurt maker and try again. I used it a couple of times when I first got it and wasn't too happy with the results. Feels like 110 in my kitchen right now anyway!
