5 Benefits of Making Your Own Yogurt

Posted by The CheeseMaker on 31st Jul 2018

Yogurt is a healthy snack, and when you make your own yogurt, you can increase its nutritional value even more. Here are 5 benefits of making your own yogurt:

More Variety

Tired of the same yogurt flavors in the grocery store? If you are craving new flavors with natural ingredients, homemade yogurt is the perfect solution. You can experiment with different tastes and textures and choose ingredients that suit your dietary needs. If you are feeling adventurous, you can branch out and try making kefir yogurt, too. Everything is up to you.

Healthier Yogurt

Yogurt benefits decrease when sugar and other additives are mixed in. Homemade yogurt gives you the freedom to use quality ingredients like real fruit and honey to increase nutrients, eliminate fillers and sugar and get the most out of your snack.

Several Uses

A big batch of homemade yogurt is great to have on hand. Yogurt can be used in several dishes and is a great alternative to less nutritious ingredients. Surprisingly, it is also an excellent addition to your skincare routine. Yogurt face masks exfoliate, cleanse and renew your skin, and applying yogurt to a sunburn provides a cooling sensation.

Easy and Inexpensive To Prepare

Making your own yogurt is easy and inexpensive. All you need to do is mix milk and a starter culture together, then let it sit in a room temperature location overnight. You will get more for your money by making your yogurt at home.

Give Back

Homemade yogurt is good for your community and the earth. You can show support for local farmers by buying your grass-fed and raw milk from them, and you will help the earth because you will not be disposing of countless plastic yogurt cups and packaging. It is a winning situation for everyone.
