RECIPE: Honey Yoghurt

Quite possibly the simplest of all the flavoured yoghurts you could make, but always a favourite, especially when dolloped onto homemade pancakes. Here's how:


  • 1 pint of milk (dairy or non-dairy)
  • 1 teaspoon of your most recent homemade natural yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon of your favourite runny honey 
  • Clean jam jars


  1. Heat your milk to 50 degrees on the hob
  2. Pour your milk into clean jars (reusing jam jars works best for this one)
  3. Add the teaspoon of natural yoghurt to the milk and gently stir it in
  4. Add the tablespoon of honey and gently stir it in
  5. A pint of milk will likely make a few jars, so repeat as necessary until the milk is used up
  6. Securely close the lids and transfer the jars to your YoghurtNest. Put the bonnet in place, pull the cord tight and wait 6 hours!

Optional extras: Add cocoa nibs or dried banana chips for a bit of extra texture. You can do this either before placing the jars into the YogurtNest, when checking the yoghurt after 6 hours or as a serving suggestion just before eating.
