Homemade Yogurt in the Instant Pot (Cold Start Method)

4.9 from 10 reviews

Creamy, rich and tangy yogurt is so easy to make in the Instant Pot and is very cost effective too. Using the cold start method is the easiest and fastest way to make yogurt. 

Ingredients

Scale

1 gallon ultra filtered whole milk
4 Tablespoons yogurt with live cultures (I use Chobani Whole Milk Greek Yogurt, or 1 jar Oui vanilla yogurt)

1 can sweetened condensed milk, optional

Instructions

  1. Pour the milk into the Instant Pot, add the yogurt and sweetened condensed milk, if using. Whisk to combine.
  2. Turn on Yogurt function, adjust set the time for a minimum of 6 hours, up to 12 hours. (I like doing this overnight.)
  3. When the yogurt is done, cool and store in airtight containers in the refrigerator for 7-10 days. There is no need to strain this type of yogurt.
