How to Make Acidophilus Yogurt
Lactobacillus acidophilus, or acidophilus, is a naturally occurring "good" bacterium that helps sustain strong intestines and also supports good digestion. Acidophilus microorganisms are found within the human body but are also found in yogurt, sauerkraut, miso and tempeh. In order to encourage and maintain a healthy digestive tract, a diet rich in these live active cultures is essential. Acidophilus yogurt recipes are easy to make, can be made in a variety of flavors, and provide an excellent source of acidophilus.
Combine 4 cups (950ml) of milk and 3/4 cups (120g) of powdered milk (if not using whole milk) in the saucepan.Set the burner to medium heat and place the saucepan on the burner.
Whisk the mixture constantly to keep it from sticking to the pan.Gradually heat the milk to 180 to 190 degrees Fahrenheit (82 to 87 degrees Celsius). Determine the temperature by inserting the instant read thermometer in the milk periodically. When the milk has reached the desired temperature, remove the saucepan from the stove and allow the milk to cool down to 115 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit (46 to 48 degrees Celsius). Once the milk cools, continue to the next step.
Spoon 2 tbs.(48g) of the plain yogurt into a small bowl and add 2 tbs. (30ml) of the heated milk. Whisk together until the mixture is smooth.
Add the mixture to the remainder of warm milk and stir constantly for approximately 2 minutes.
Pour the contents of the saucepan into a storage container and cover.
Place the container in the cooler and cover (or wrap the container in the kitchen towels).Let sit for 4 to 6 hours until the yogurt sets.
Refrigerate the yogurt.The yogurt will be ready for consumption when it has completely chilled.
- Homemade acidophilus yogurt will maintain its freshness for up to 10 days. Leftover homemade yogurt can also be used to start another batch of fresh yogurt.
- Look for the National Yogurt Association's (NYA) special Live & Active Cultures seal on the yogurt container to verify that it contains active cultures.
- Any variety of milk can be used to make acidophilus yogurt, but fat content will increase with a higher fat content milk.
- Powdered milk is only required if whole milk is not used.
- Stir in fruits and flavorings after yogurt has set but before placing in the refrigerator.
- If flavored yogurt is desired, consider adding fresh fruit, sugar, jam, jelly, maple syrup, or other flavors as desired.
- Airtight glass canning jars work best for storage, but plastic storage containers with secure lids are acceptable.
- Watch the milk closely when it is on the stove top. Milk can boil over and burn quickly.
