Making yogurt from a small quantity of live culture yogurt can be gussied up using cinnamon by adding the spice to the milk prior to boiling it.
Is it possible to make chocolate flavoured yogurt using boiled commercially made chocolate milk instead of boiled milk?
There is no reason why you can't turn chocolate milk into yogurt. Now, much commercial chocolate milk has carrageenan added as a stabilizer. If you get issues with carrageenan separating out, you can also use Torani chocolate syrup (intended to flavor coffees) to add the flavor to normal milk.
Possible Duplicate: Is it possible to make Sour Cream at home? I make yogurt by adding a small amount of yogurt to milk, heating it slightly (barely in this weather!) and letting it sit several hours. It's, of course, a simple process--that's rather what yogurt is all about. I understand sour cream is made by the same essential process, but I don't know what changes I would need to make. Could I just add a little yogurt to some cream? Do I need to change the ratio of fresh to culture? Does the incubation time or temperature change at all?
Yogurt is produced by the fermentation of lactose in milk by the bacteria of yogurt-ferment. Without those bacteria it is not possible to make yogurt. But surprisingly, water buffalo milk and lemon juice mixture turns into yogurt without any third ingredient. You may first boil the milk to sterilize it; the result doesn't change. The milk must be water buffalo milk, cow milk or another animal's milk doesn't make yogurt this way. One of my relatives made yogurt this way, so this is not a myth (if you didn't hear this before). Unfortunately I couldn't find an English recipe to share with you
OK, I've been tasked with making a Paleo dessert, and I'd like to try to make a frozen dessert. Here are the ground rules for Paleo desserts: only fermented dairy (yogurt is fine, milk and cream are not), only honey and maybe palm sugar as sweeteners, eggs are fine, nuts are fine, raw coconut oil is fine. I'm thinking it might be possible to combine full-fat yogurt, strained perhaps, with egg yolks and honey, bring it up to 170 to make a custard, then chill, to get something that would freeze acceptably in a standard home ice cream machine. Any suggestions? Would this work? I'd think
I have a recipe for a normal Victoria sponge. I also have a huge box of Swiss hot chocolate powder. (The kind you sprinkle onto hot milk to make drinking chocolate.) Is drinking chocolate a good way to add chocolate flavour to a cake? Or is that likely to not work? How would I go about using it? Can I just add it, or do I need to adjust the other ingredients? How much should I use?
I like to make homemade yogurt and I am experimenting with timing to get my yogurt to be not so sour but still completely set. Yogurt is, by definition, quite acidic since that is what sets the protein in the first place. Commercial frozen yogurts seem to be much milder than I can achieve at home. I assume this is because they are using thickeners rather than 100% yogurt. Because they aren't as sour you can find frozen yogurts of almost any flavor. Since my yogurt is so sour I am more limited in what flavors work well with it. A sour chocolate frozen yogurt does not make my tongue happy. I
I made chocolate scones using this recipe, using the milk/cream but leaving out the eggs because I'm vegan. The scones didn't come out soft. What might be the reason? Is there any substitute for the eggs that can make the scones softer?
I've bought this yogurt maker (the only one I've been ever able to find in the country I'm living), and it only has a simple on/off button. Somewhere in the manual, it's written that "Good yogurt takes eight to 15 hours, depending on the type of milk used." Now I'm wondering how can I know when my yogurt will be ready. The manual says: Preparation of the yogurts ... [ yogurt making instructions ] ... When the yogurt maker cools off (eight to ten hours after having turned on), make sure that the yogurts have been set. If they haven't, the starter culture did not have

step to make Greek Yogurt is to heat up the milk to denature albumin protein. Apparently this results in the protein staying in the yogurt instead of the whey. So I thought if I didn’t heat the milk...Last week I successfully made my own greek yogurt! I was and am very excited that I finally got it to work. But now the problem is, the yogurt I am making is just not very smooth. Store bought greek yogurt (such as Dannon Oikos and Fage) is silky smooth, thick and creamy. This texture is one of the biggest reasons I enjoy it so much. My DIY greek yogurt has a rough consistency closer to ricotta
