How do I use EasiYo to make yoghurt?
It is really easy to use the EasYo yoghurt maker to make yoghurt. The instructions come in the box but this is a quick rundown.
Half fill the container with room temperature water and pour in the yoghurt sachet.
Put the lid on the jar and give it a good shake. Add more water into the jar leaving a 5mm gap at the top.
Take the lid off the yoghurt maker. Inside is a red spacer. Add boiling water into the yoghurt maker until it covers the top of the spacer.
Put your jar of yoghurt mix into the yoghurt maker and put on the lid.
Leave for eight to twelve hours until set. You will then have a container of delicious yoghurt. Put it in the fridge until you are ready to eat it.
Ensure the water is at room temperature before adding the yoghurt mix. It should be between 15C and 25C. This ensures the yoghurt will set.
Make sure that the yoghurt sachet you are using is not out of date.
How long does it take to make yoghurt?
Getting the yoghurt mix into the yoghurt container is a very quick process. which takes less than ten minutes. You will need to let it sit for eight to twelve hours before it is ready. Why not make it at night and have yoghurt ready for breakfast?
Reducing plastic waste
If you are looking to reduce your plastic waste then the EasiYo yoghurt maker is a great solution. The reusable jar allows you to make 1kg of yoghurt at one time, saving 8 x 125g single-use plastic pots making their way into fridges and then into the rubbish bin. It is a great way to reduce your plastic waste.
Where can I buy EasiYo?
You can get the EasiYo yoghurt maker and sachets of yoghurt on the EasiYo website. They are also available at Lakeland and the yoghurt sachets from The Range. A starter kit with two sachets costs from £16.99.
What we thought
We found the EasiYo yoghurt maker really easy to use and the yoghurt was thick, creamy and delicious. I love the idea that I can have a few sachets of yoghurt mix in the cupboard and make them up for the next day. It is a great way to reduce plastic waste and also helps cut out unnecessary trips to the shops.
The yoghurt maker is a nice size to store away in a cupboard when it is not in use and the 1kg jar fits nicely in the fridge. I have some smaller pots which I decanted the yoghurt into. That way I have six equal portions for the family to share. If I didn’t do this the yoghurt would disappear very quickly as its so nice.
