A simple, foolproof, delicious recipe. I often make it by substituting a tablespoonful of instant coffee for the vanilla. Minimum sweetener. You can use vanilla yogurt for a starter as well as plain. I find about 6 hours is long enough for "incubation."

Great yogurt recipe! I use 2 Tbsp. white sugar and 2 Tbsp. brown sugar and the sweetness is perfect. I also use pure vanilla extract I got at Costco - nothing fancy but taste great. I incubate it for 12 hours and the tartness is just right. Thanks for this recipe!

I used the 1T of vanilla and skipped the sugar/sweetener. I really liked the result. The yogurt definitely had a vanilla flavor and fragrance but wasn't overly sweet. I used the thermos method as in Homemade Yogurt to cook the yogurt. I agree 12 hours is a good cooking time resulting in a creamy not-quite-firm "pudding" texture. Delicious, princess buttercup.

Can you safely omit the dry milk?

Perfect every time! I use 4tbs. of cane sugar. I tried less but wasn't quite sweet enough for my little ones. I also use pure vanilla extract. I think this recipe tastes just like Stoney***** Vanilla yogurt!

This is my new "go to" yogurt recipe. Turns out perfect everytime!!

The only substitution I make is agave for sugar. I also use Mexican clear vanilla since I have some from a recent trip. When it's gone I'll have to use regular vanilla.

Love this recipe! Perfect consistency, perfect sweetness. I use whole milk, and my little kids eat it up like it's ice cream! Thanks for sharing!!!

This is a wonderful vanilla yogurt that 3 of my kids really like. For my 2 youngest I add a little milk to the finished yogurt and then place it in sippy cups. They love this yogurt drink and I love how good it is for them. I have made it about 4 times in the past 2 months and I will continue to make it in the future.
