You can aim for a thick and a creamy yoghurt without making use of a yoghurt maker indeed. You require simple ingredients to get started. This way, you would never require the need for a store-bought yoghurt again. Here are a few important considerations you look for to getting a perfect consistency on a home-made soy yoghurt.

Choosing the milk

You must use a perfect home-made soy milk to get the recipe started. You don’t have additives or preservatives that a store made milk would have. For vegan lovers, who go for store-made ones, you also discover a gummy consistency that is added to the same. As a shelf product would contain gums, preservatives, or additives to enhance the shelf life of the product. Therefore, when you want your plant-based yoghurt to be devoid of any kind of chemicals or preservatives, go in for a home-made plant milk. And, not a store bought one!

Look for the type of temperature you must set the milk in

For a perfect recipe of yoghurt, you must set the milk at the right temperature indeed. At the room temperature, the optimal standard is 42 degree Celsius or 102-degree Fahrenheit. You should necessarily keep the right temperature for the probiotic delicacy to set in. This is mainly because you don’t want the friendly bacteria to die. Make sure, you drip dry your hands clean before you dip your fingers to check if the yoghurt has set well or not.

Few indicators on starters

Say, if you have already made a plant-based yoghurt before, it is better you save 120 ml of yoghurt for the next batch. This way, you have the perfect starter to make further quantities of home-based yoghurt. Are you making a plant-based yoghurt for the very first time? Then, you can use vegan starters. Like, say, probiotic capsules. This would be live or cultured bacteria that allow the milk to set into curd or yoghurt. We are going to add flavors and sweeteners so that you have the perfect recipe for a plant-based yoghurt.
