How to Make Instant Pot Yogurt
Add in your milk to your Instant Pot. Add your lid on and wait for your pressure cooker to beep and say yogurt on the front.
Turn the pot off, and allow it to cool once it reaches proper heat. Once cooled, stir in your starter, and then turn to normal for 8-10 hours.
Once done, remove the lid and strain through a cheesecloth. This will help to thicken your yogurt. Use an immersion blender if you want to make a creamy texture.
Refrigerate and serve up your yogurt.
How to Make Yogurt More Tangy
If you want your homemade yogurt to be tangier, let it sit longer. The longer your yogurt sits as it cooks the tangier the flavor will be. That is why you see an 8-10 hour window in the cooking.
What does the yogurt button do on the Instant Pot?
The yogurt button heats enough to help separate the protein out of the milk and allows you to create the perfect temperature to create homemade yogurt.
How long does Instant Pot yogurt last?
This instapot yogurt can last for around 2 weeks when stored properly. Just place your yogurt in containers or a large container and store in the fridge.
Then scoop up and serve as you would like.
Why didn't my Instant Pot yogurt thicken?
I have found using whole milk is important when it comes to making yogurt. Thinner milk will result in a less-creamy yogurt.
Now, if you want to make an Instant Pot almond milk yogurt, you will need to adjust the cooking method.
Can you leave yogurt in Instant Pot overnight?
You can let your Instant Pot sit overnight with the yogurt if you would like. You can wrap the Instant Pot with a towel around the Instant Pot to ensure it stays proper temperature.
Topping Ideas For Yogurt
- Fresh Fruit - strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, etc.
- Shredded coconut
- Caramel or chocolate
