I Made Dinner With EasiYo's Homemade Yogurt Every Night This Week — Here's How It Went

Spoiler alert — there wasn't a lick of leftover food OR yogurt.

As someone who's always on the lookout for new ways to make meals at home more fun and delicious, I've been intrigued by the DIY-yogurt phenomenon for quite some time.

Then, I heard about EasiYo's amazing yogurt-maker, which has been getting a lot of buzz for its genius simplicity.

I had no idea making your own Greek Style yogurt could be so simple!

I was beyond happy (and relieved) to find there were only three steps to the process. It really was as simple as it looked. The first step was to mix a sachet of yogurt powder with room-temperature drinking water (15-20°C) in the EasiYo jar — by giving it a good shake.

Then I had to add boiling water to the yogurt-maker and place the jar inside. After that, it was just a case of leaving it to do its thing and set for 8-12 hours, before placing it in the fridge to chill.

And...ta-da! There you have it: Thick and creamy Greek Style yogurt. As if by magic.

What also struck me was the volume of yogurt I'd got from just one sachet.

I was desperate to make several dinners involving my home-made yogurt (mostly so I could revel in the deliciousness of what I'd made). And after browsing the EasiYo recipes, one thing became clear: Yogurt is ridiculously versatile. You can use it in so many meals — both sweet and savoury.

1. On Monday, it was all about crispy chicken burgers — with a tasty and incredibly easy coleslaw to go with.

2. This creamy mushroom fettuccini — with the most delicious cheesy sauce — was a Tuesday night triumph.

3. This easy banana smoothie worked great for a quick and nutritious dessert on Wednesday.

4. No store-bought pizza bases for me — this home-made version made Thursday's mid-week dinner too easy.

5. Vanilla pancakes — with honey and berries — took our Friday ~brinner~ supper to the next level.

Beyond these simple recipes, you can use yogurt in so many salads and dips, cookies and tarts, and various types of home-made bread like focaccia, garlic and herb knots, or this zucchini bread, which I'm 100% making next...

Who doesn't love a bit more freedom in the kitchen!? Which reminds me...did I mention the yogurt-maker requires no electronic parts or power, so you can keep it anywhere on your bench-top and move it around freely? Another bonus!

Give it a try for yourself (don't waste time, like I did). If you like things kept super simple and easy, head over to EasiYo and learn more about making delicious, fresh yogurt at home — it's definitely got the feel-good factor.
