My Journey to Homemade Yogurt



Years ago, while in pharmacy school, I learned a simple homemade yogurt recipe from the book French Women Don’t Get Fat by Mireille Guiliano.



In this book, Mireille talks about how yogurt is the French staple food. In addition to weight loss, yogurt brings many other health benefits. You can read more about her recipe and how the French incorporates yogurt into everyday life here.

Over the years, I forgot the homemade yogurt recipe. When I moved to Mexico, I discovered plain yogurt was expensive. Instead of paying for the same American brand at a higher price, I thought of the simple yogurt recipe.


One afternoon, I brought two liters of lactose-free 2% milk and a plain yogurt cup as a starter. My first batch came out beautifully.


It was creamy and light, with a hint of sweetness. No more added sugar, chemicals, or the tangy note from most commercial brands.


Now, I add my homemade yogurt to smoothies, dipping sauces, and even baked goods. It works!


There’s something magical about seeing milk turn into delicious yogurt. So satisfying.


Whenever I open the refrigerator, I check how many commercially manufactured food items I have, and consider how to make them better at home. 


Yes, handcrafting is empowering and addictive.


The benefits of homemade yogurt are right at your fingertips, waiting for you to embark on this delightful journey.


Join the growing community of food enthusiasts who are passionate about their health, nutrition, and the environment. It’s time to experience the incredible benefits of homemade yogurt and forge an intimate bond with the food you eat.


Start today and savor the transformative power of homemade goodness!
