Crockpot yogurt

I love yogurt. It's one of my favorite breakfast foods. I have been making my own for a little whole now and I have tried several different recipes to make it in the crockpot.  I have had some serious fails and some just ok. This recipe is a combination of recipes that has worked perfectly for me.

1/2 gallon 1% milk
1/2 cup plain yogurt with live cultures
1/2 cup powdered milk

1 Turn crockpot on low and pour  in 1/2 gallon of milk. Cook 2 1/2

2 after the 2 1/2 hours have passed turn the crockpot off and do not lift the lid for 3 hours.

3 after 3 hours have passed take two cups of the warm milk and transfer it into a large bowl. Add the yogurt and milk powder.  Make sure to mix it well. Pour the mixture back into the crockpot and stir.

4. Place the lid back on the crockpot and cover the entire thing with a heavy towel. Let it sit for 8 hours.

5.  After 8 hours have passed place the yogurt in an storage container and refrigerate.

This yogurt is a little bit thinner then most. It is so simple to make you just have to plan to be around the house to get it started.

We love to add a bit of vanilla extract,  fresh fruit, make smoothies, and eat it with cereal. Since it makes a good amount of yogurt we get creative to make sure it doesn't go to waist!

Do you cook with yogurt? What do you use it for?
