I found the technique for making yogurt in the slow cooker from Crockpot 365 and tried it out last weekend it worked out pretty well. I'm not going to repost what Stephanie already wrote because that would be redundant, but here are some small variations that I made.
Variation #1: Greek Yogurt
I LOVE Greek yogurt so I thought I would make some at home. I followed Stephanie's Crockpot Yogurt Recipe and after the incubation period I poured my yogurt into a colander lined with cheese cloth.
Once you've gained maximum thickness (I'll post pics tomorrow) you can then do whatever you want with your yogurt. I pureed a pint of strawberries and a little honey with my immersion blender and then blended the yogurt and the fruit together. This is what it looked like 10 days later:
I doing this tomorrow but basically the plan is to take my plain Greek yogurt and whip it in my KitchenAid. I haven't actually tried this yet, so this is all theoritical right now. I'll let you know how things go over tomorrow (fail or succeed). My goal is something similar to Yoplait Whips yogurt. I'm also in the process of looking for a orange creme flavoring recipe. That's the flavor Dj really likes so I'm trying to make it (no success thus far but maybe soon).
Update 3/10/2010: To date I still haven't gotten the whipped yogurt to work out. I'm still working on it but hopefully I'll figure something out soon.
Until next time...........
