Greek Yogurt in the Crock Pot!

My husband eats Greek Yogurt for breakfast every morning. So, imagine my excitement when I found this online tutorial for making your own yogurt in the crockpot! I decided to adapt the recipe to our tastes and make Honey Greek Yogurt.

Start out with 8 C (1/2 gallon) of homogenized or pasteurized milk. I used whole milk this time around, but next time I will use 2%.

 Dump the half gallon into the crock pot, and turn on LOW for 2.5 hours.

Turn off, and unplug the crock pot, and let it sit, cover on, for 3 hours.

I found it useful to write down the times so I didn’t forget.

After the 3 hours is up, scoop out 2 C of the milk and whisk in 1/2 C of storebought yogurt to the 2 C of reserved milk. Add the milk/yogurt mixture back to the crockpot. I used a 1/2 C of the last batch of yogurt I made.

Cover the entire crock pot with a bath towel and let sit for 8 hours or overnight.

Put a strainer over a bowl.

Cover the strainer with paper towels, cover with Saran wrap, and put in the fridge for a few hours. I did it overnight. Just because I didn’t want to stay up until 2am. But, this is so delicious, I would have.

I woke up this morning, and look, super thick Greek yogurt!

Scoop out 1/2 C of yogurt to use in your next batch.

Drizzle honey over your yogurt, and stir.

Drizzle with more honey, top with fresh fruit, and enjoy. I know you will!

  1. so excited to try this – we’ve recently discovered Greek yogurt and really enjoy it … but not the price!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I did this last night with some cheats – so I had my crock pot on high for 2.5 hours and the milk was only at like 150 (degrees) and I’ve read it needs to be at 190 or 200 – but you make no mention of checking temp (and we have the exact crock pot you show) – do you monitor temp at all?
