Flavoring Your Yogurt
You can add many different flavors to liven up your yogurt. Flavoring can either happen before making the yogurt, or afterwards, depending on the flavorings you want to use.
FLAVORING AFTER MAKING YOGURT
Follow the general instructions for making yogurt, and then add fresh fruit, syrups, jams, preservatives and other flavorings to taste.
FLAVORING BEFORE MAKING YOGURT
To infuse your yogurt with delightful flavors, try adding the following ingredients into your activated milk before putting in Yolife.
Fruit Syrups - Thoroughly mix 4-5 tablespoons of concentrated fruit syrup with one quart of activated milk.
Coffee - Thoroughly mix 100g of sugar and 3-4 tablespoons of granulated coffee with 1 quart of activated milk
Fruit Jams or Jellies - Melt 4-5 tablespoons of fruit jam or jelly in a saucepan over low heat. Slowly add ½ quart of milk that has not yet been activated and let the mixture cool. After mixture has cooled, add ½ quart of activated milk.
Preserved Canned Fruit - Cut 3-4 pineapple slices or 8-12 peach halves (or other canned fruit according to their dimensions) into small pieces. Mix with 4-5 tablespoons of the canned fruit’s juice. Slowly add 1 quart of activated milk and mix thoroughly.
Fresh Fruit - Cut fresh fruit into small pieces and mix with 1/3 cup of water and 100g of sugar. Stirring occasionally, heat the mixture over low heat for 10-15 minutes. Let the mixture cool to room temperature. Mix thoroughly with 1 quart of activated milk.
**IMPORTANT: All fresh fruit MUST be cooked according to the above directions before using with Yolife in order to remove any outside bacteria. If you prefer uncooked, fresh fruit, you can add it to your yogurt AFTER it has been made.**
