Here's What Happened When We Tried EasiYo’s Fresh Homemade Yogurt For The First Time

They use milk from Irish cows — so you know it's gonna be unbelievably creamy.

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.

I had heard a little bit about EasiYo's amazing yogurt-maker — which has been getting a lot of buzz for its genius simplicity, so I thought I'd finally bite the bullet and give it a go.

I truly had no idea that making my own Greek Style yogurt could be so easy.

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 stuck me was the volume of yogurt I'd got from just one sachet.

I was desperate to see how I could use all of my freshly made yogurt 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.

In total, I made five meals with my Greek Style yogurt — all using recipes from EasiYo's website. I made some crispy chicken burgers, which featured a satisfyingly crunchy coleslaw made with the yogurt, heavenly mushroom fettuccine, unbelievably creamy banana smoothies, a super simple pizza base — and even pancakes.

The verdict? I don't think I'll be making a recipe that doesn't include Greek Style Yogurt for a while.

Beyond the simple recipes that I went for, 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 courgette bread, which I'm 100% making next...

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. 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.
