Homemade Soy Yogurt

Homemade Soya Yoghurt

Soya Yoghurt

OK. This may seem like a challenge but it’s SOOO gratifying once you have made and tasted it!!! I can’t really eat dairy products and this is a great substitute!

You will need a food thermometre and PH test strip (or if you have one, an electric PH tester which are great for home made canned foods)


4 cups soy milk (organic is best)
2 to 3 tablespoons organic or commercial yoghurt (Dannon Plain Yogurt, etc)
5 tablespoons cane sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla flavor or other flavor as desired
Optional: Fruit preserves


1. Heat the soy milk to 90°C
2. Add sugar to the heated soymilk base and keep the temperature at 90°C, heating only long enough to dissolve the sugar. Add flavor.
3. Cool the milk to 122oF (50°C). Add the organic/commercial yogurt, gently mix the contents thoroughly and avoid the formation of foam. Pour the milk into cups and then seal with a cap.
4. Immediately place the cups into an incubator, or an oven at 41°C for approximately 5 hr. After 4-1/2 hr of incubation, closely monitor the pH of the yogurt. When the pH reaches 4.3 or desired sourness, transfer the yogurt to a refrigerator at 36°F (2oC).
5. After 12 hr refrigeration, the yogurt can be served.

Option: To make yogurt with fruit on bottom, place 2 to 3 teaspoons fruit preserve into the bottom of each of the yogurt cups. Gently fill the mixture from step 3 into yogurt cups to near the top and then seal with a cap.

You can also do this with honey (spoon 2/3 tablespoons into the bottom of each cup).

Soy yogurt can be made by a yogurt maker following the instruction.

  1. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was
    super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but
    I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for novice blog writers? I’d certainly
    appreciate it.

      Hi there and thank you for your post! Shame I didn’t get the first one. It’s great to hear that you like my blog, it’s such an investment time and creativity wise that I am so happy when I get lovely comments like yours.
      Points for novice bloggers… I would say use a calendar and plan at least a month ahead so you know when you are going to blog and more or less what you want to blog about. Then, you need to choose your frequency and stick to that, remember quantity isn’t necessarily quality! Also, I think that having a super nice blog platoform that enables you to post large beautiful pictures is important. I mean, your writing is crucial but illustrating your blog with your own photos is the way to make yourself individual!
      I hope this is of help to you and look forward to your next comment.
      Kisses, Fiona xoxoxoxo
