This is my MIL's recipe for making yogurt using NEWLIFE yogurt maker. Really simple recipe & steps to making very good & healthy probiotic snack. Many commercial yogurt use alot of preservative and artificial flavoring, so if you really need to buy from marts, please check out the ingredients and be aware of what you are getting in your yogurt.
The recipe uses:
a) the Jug & maker from the NEWLIFE set
b) organic soy bean powder
c) any sieve you have and water
d) ready made yogurt ~25ml OR yogourmet starter.
General steps outline:
a) 800ml water, add 12x spoonful soy bean powder, stir & sieve
b) add some water to starter, OR use last batch yogurt as starter (your existing probiotics army)
c) stir again, place into maker & turn on power for 10-12hours.
Illustrated steps below:
800ml water the jug, look at it's marker. Add 12 spoonful of organic soy bean powder.
Stir well until they mix together.
Sieve out any blobs to avoid yoghurt lumps. Transfer back to jug.
Add the starter & stir, if your last batch of yogurt is kept, they can be used as starter as well up to 10 times. Really save up the cost of starter with repeat use.
Put the cover of jug on.
Place into maker, & turn on. Takes about 10-12 hours to be ready although the recipe book says 8hours. Newlife yogurt maker, see link for more details
Done. Who says making yogurt is hard? Serve after refrigerate with some black sugar/molasses/soaked chia seed/with fruits/make yogurt shake. This is arguably the best-tasting and easiest home made yogurt , baby E loves it & keep asking for more.
At this point, you can store up ~25 to 50ml in small container of yogurt as starter for next time use.
That's it folks for this post.

Freshly-made yogurt is filled with countless numbers of beneficial bacteria that help digestion and kill harmful viruses
Store-bought yogurt is cold, heavy, difficult to digest and can cause the finer channels, or shrotas, of the physiology to become clogged. Also, once the yogurt has been refrigerated, the quantity of friendly bacteria decreases and thus the health producing benefits are less.
benefits from fresh yogurt include decreased bloating, as well as relief of both constipation and diarrhea and other stomach disorders.
