Flavouring Home Made Yoghurt


I always have two yoghurts on the go in my fridge – Natural for myself & for coking & then Vanilla for the kids.  If you haven’t done so already, check out my Make Your Own Yoghurt post.


The most important thing to do first though, is always take 3 tablespoons of yoghurt for your next starter, before you add your flavouring.

Follow these directions to flavour your natural yoghurt.  I make Vanilla yoghurt for the kids, which they love on it’s own.  I’ll then often add to that fresh fruit, passionfruit or make my own berry coulis in my Thermomix (see below).

Vanilla Yoghurt:
Add to 1 quantity (1L) of Natural Yoghurt;
60g caster sugar
10g vanilla bean paste
10g vanilla extract
Stir ingredients well into yoghurt & refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving.


Berry Coulis
200g fresh or frozen raspberries or mixed berries
100g caster sugar
20g freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)

1) Place all ingredients into TM bowl, cook 6 minutes/90 degrees/speed 4.
2) If you prefer a smoother coulis, puree 10 seconds/speed 8 after cooking.

Serve coulis once cooled & store in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.

  1. Hi thanks for the tips here, a question please, I am getting a thermo this week and want to make my own yoghurt as we have a dairy farm and abundance of fresh milk. As the starter though in the cupboard I have forest fruits easiyo packet, can i make this as normal in easiyo and use 3 tbsn of this in my own yoghurt??? rather than going and buying some natural?

    • Hi Jacqui, I’m sure you can use the easiyo packet as a starter, however I’ve never used it, so not sure what the results are like. You should give it a try & let me know how you go. I doubt you’d be able to use the yoghurt made with easiyo sachet as the starter for the next batch though. Have fun with your new Thermo – you’ll love it!!
