Taking a dietary supplement is one option for people who want to improve their digestive health. There are also various types of foods that naturally contain beneficial compounds to aid digestion. Most people believe that the yogurt found at their local grocery store is one such food. Unfortunately, most of the yogurt commonly found there contains little or no beneficial probiotics. They have been processed out. However, you can make your own yogurt at home by using a slow cooker or crockpot. Four to six servings of crockpot yogurt can be made by using a basic recipe.
One important thing about making a crockpot yogurt is having a starter available. You can use a cup of store bought organic yogurt. You will use the starter only for the first batch. Once the first batch is done, then you need to reserve just one half of a cup as a starter for the next batch of crockpot yogurt.
A few basic ingredients are needed to make a crockpot yogurt at home. All you need is any type of whole milk and sugar – which is optional. Vanilla extract is also used in the recipe. You can find the ingredients at the market where the yogurt for the starter was purchased.
If you do not have a slow cooker, then you can easily find one at any store that sells kitchen supplies or accessories. You can also look online. However, a friend or a family member might have a crockpot available to make crockpot yogurt. An old crockpot may also be found at a local garage sale.
The total time to make a crockpot yogurt at home is about 15 hours. This will depend on the heat of the crockpot and the consistency that is required. Another six to eight hours of cooling is necessary until your yogurt is ready to serve.
