How to Make Yogurt in a Crock Pot

Making your own yogurt in a crock pot is a simple and easy way to make your own yogurt at home. Here are the steps to do it:


  • 2 Quarts of Milk
  • 1/2 Cup of Dry Milk Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla
  • 1/4 Cup of Yogurt Starter


  1. Pour 2 quarts of milk, 1/2 cup of dry milk powder, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla into the crock pot.
  2. Turn your crock pot onto the “low” setting, cover, and let cook for 2-3 hours.
  3. Turn off the crock pot after 2-3 hours.
  4. Let the milk cool down for 3-4 hours, until it reaches 105-115 degrees F (41-46 degrees C).
  5. Stir in 1/4 cup of prepared yogurt starter.
  6. Cover your crock pot and wrap it with a towel. This will help to keep the heat in the crock pot and help to keep the yogurt warm.
  7. Place the crock pot in the oven (with the oven off) overnight for approximately 8-10 hours.
  8. Take the crock pot out of the oven and let it cool down for about an hour.
  9. Stir the yogurt and place it in individual containers.
  10. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours before serving.

And there you have it! Homemade yogurt made with a crock pot. Enjoy!
