Fresh Yogurt?? YES!!

This recipe is so easy, and so tangy! I love it. I mix in fresh berries to make a wonderful flavorful yogurt.

I’ve only used one packet so far, and my yogurt has been turning out great. On my first go, I ended up with cultured milk(which was AMAZING in smoothies) but every batch since the has done well.

Best yogurt ever

I live a distance from anywhere I can get organic yogurt do I purchased a yogurt maker. This culture makes the best yogurt with just the right tanginess and creamy thick consistency. I'm really enjoying this healthy treat.

Poor results from traditional yogurt starter

I left a message for someone from your company to contact me but no one ever did. I don't want to put a poor review out to the public but I did want to talk to someone from your company. I have been making yogurt for many years using a starter from Homesteaders. It always worked great. I tried your brand with both raw and then pasteurized milk and it always turns out very thin and doesn't really even taste like yogurt. The powder in both of the packets I have used was very dry and clumped together. I didn't know if this is the way it should look or not. I will be going back to my original yogurt starter but just upset I wasted the money on both the starter and the milk.

Delightfully tart and luxuriously smooth. Five stars well earned.
