Yogurt Mixture

  • Clean your Instant Pot Stainless Inner Pot THOROUGHLY!

  • Place a clear lid on your Instant Pot that covers the inner liner completely.
  • Allow it to Incubate for 8 hours. DO NOT MIX during this time.
  • Once the time has passed and YoGRT is showing on the display. Move the mixture to the refrigerator for an additional 4 - 6 hours to completely cool.


  • You can store it for 7 - 10 days in one container or in separate individual portioned containers. I use 8 oz Glad containers and it yields 12.
