Alright, so you’ve mastered making yogurt in your Instant Pot, but now you’re hearing that you can make yogurt without boiling the milk first… Well, you’ve heard correctly! It makes life easier and it turns out just as good! 🙂

Step one, grab some Fairlife Milk at your local grocery store. Also grab a yogurt starter of your choice. Any brand works, (Fage, chobani, etc) Just make sure it has active live cultures in it.

IMG_5819

Pour the milk into the Instant Pot, add the starter and stir well. If you’re adding sugar or vanilla, you may do so now.

IMG_5818

Put the lid on. It doesn’t need to be sealed though since it doesn’t come to pressure during the Yogurt cycle.

Push the Yogurt button and make sure it says “Normal” NOT “Less” Use the “+” and “-“ button to adjust the time to say 8:00 for 8 hours.

When the 8 hours are up, put the yogurt in the fridge and let it cool at least 6 hours or overnight.

Anytime that I can get Hayden (my 7 year old) to eat red meat (beef, pork etc) is a win for me! Anytime I’ve made meatloaf before, he’s hated it and since he loves everything I make in the Instant Pot, I decided to give it a shot! Well, it was a HUGE success… the only problem?
