This recipe is super easy to make and requires just two simple ingredients. All you need is 2 quarts of whole milk, and two tablespoons of whole-milk Greek yogurt. It may seem counterintuitive to put yogurt in a recipe to make yogurt, but trust us, it’s totally worth it. That’s because this Instant Pot yogurt will taste completely different from anything you have ever eaten before.
The best thing about this Instant Pot recipe is that you need just five minutes to prep it. Of course, you then need 12 hours and 40 minutes to cook it – but you can just leave it overnight! Simply pour the milk into your Instant Pot and choose the “Yogurt” setting. Press this button until you see “boil” on the screen, and let it do its thing for 35 minutes. By this time, your milk should reach 180°. Once this is the case, remove the inner pot and place it in an ice bath to cool to around 110 – 115°. Then, stir a cup of milk into the Greek yogurt, and place the whole mixture back into the Instant Pot. Press the “Normal” setting button, and let the yogurt whisk and whir away for around 8 to 12 hours. Once this cycle has finished, transfer the yogurt into the containers of your choice and chill for about four hours in the refrigerator, or until it has set completely.
