Vegan Yogurt Starter
- Product Review (submitted on June 9, 2014):
- I've made vegan yogurt with this starter several times now, using Westsoy Organic Unsweetened soy milk for its protein content. (Haven't tried other plant milks yet.) Contrary to the enclosed directions, I've found it is NOT necessary to add any kind of thickening agent. The yogurt firms up nicely on its own--a bit delicate, almost custardy, but that's fine with me. Tastes great. Also, it's not necessary to bring the milk to a boil and then cool it, as some videos I've seen have suggested. All you need to do is heat the milk up in the microwave just until it's pleasantly warm, add the starter, mix well, pour into short glasses, cover with a towel, put in a warm place for 8 hours, and voilà! Yogurt!
