We make our own homemade yogurt with organic milk. All you need is whole or 2% milk, powdered milk, and a small amount of yogurt with cultures to use as a starter (I wouldn't recommend using 1% or fat-free milk). I make a batch of whole milk yogurt for my daughter and a batch of skim milk yogurt for myself weekly. We have a yogurt (incubator) that turns milk into yogurt in less than 6 hours that was purchased online for approximately $20. There are many websites on the internet that give instructions how to "incubate" homemade yogurt in an oven or even a picnic cooler. For my daughter, I add a spoonful of all-fruit spread or pureed fresh fruit and a teaspoon of honey to sweeten (honey is not safe for children under the age of 1). You can even pour sweetened yogurt containing fruit into popsicle molds for nutritious, summer treats!

That's great, and even though milk prices are high, I bet it saves a ton of money! My friend gave us a culture to make our own kefir at home, it's been so easy and lots of fun!
