I am very excited to Use My Crock Pot in a new way.
My Daughter prepared this recipe yesterday, then called Me at 6:30 a.m. to Brag.

Directions

  1. Pour the milk into the crock pot and turn it on low. Let sit 2.5 hours.
  2. Unplug crock pot, leave lid on. Let sit for 3 hours.
  3. Ladle out a bit of the milk and stir it in with the yogurt starter. This yogurt MUST have live cultures. I used nonfat, plain Greek yogurt.
  4. Mix in pudding mix.
  5. Return the mixture to the crock pot and the rest of the milk; stir. Put lid back on and cover with a heavy bath towel or blanket (pot still unplugged). This is its insulator. Leave it like this at least 8 hours.
  6. The longer it sits, the tart-er it gets. I like mine nice and tart.
  7. It will be thin. If you want it thicker, place coffee filters in a colander and drain off whey. You can save the whey for cooking, as it is very healthy!
  8. You can use 2 tbs fat free dry milk or 1 packet plain gelatin in place of pudding mix. I just happened to have pudding mix on hand.
  9. Mix some jam, fresh fruit, etc. into it when you serve. If you don't use vanilla pudding mix, it could also be a great base for dips or sauces.
