Product Review (submitted on February 24, 2014):
I've tried four times now, with different milks. First two with rice milk were completely water consistency. Other than a yogurt maker, I tried all methods following directions to a tee. Treated it like a baby, monitoring, measuring temps, etc. It was recommended that I buy a pectin that cost $5...pricing me out of this yogurt mix. There maybe should be a warning that it will get much pricier if you have to add in other items like this. Tried with Westsoy soy milk when we could finally add soy to our elimination diet. No go. A little better, but not much more than glops in liquid. Finally, I tried coconut (homemade milk plus full-fat canned). Completely watery, stirring/shaking before refrigeration didn't help. I added starch, I added sweetener (tried honey & maple syrup). All I get is liquid for my smoothies. Still longing for yogurt. I cannot purchase again as it's too expensive for 'experimenting' and the outcomes I've received.

Response from CFH: We recommend using non-dairy milks with as few additives as possible. So far we have had the best results using homemade milks.
