EasiYo is so simple to make, just follow the three step process and you'll have fresh, delicious yogurt at home. It's that easy.
Half-fill your yogurt jar with room temperature, drinking water. Add the contents of a yogurt sachet, pop on the lid and give it a good shake. Fill the jar up with more water to about 5mm from the top... and shake again.
Push the plastic insert spacer down inside the Yogurt Maker as far as it can go. (Check the correct side is facing up). Pour boiling water into the Yogurt Maker to the top of the plastic insert spacer.
Put your jar into the Yogurt Maker so that it sits on top of the plastic insert. The boiling water will rise part-way up the sides of the jar. Put the Yogurt Maker lid on and leave it on your kitchen worktop for 8 to 12 hours (or overnight) to let the yogurt set... and the magic will happen!
No, all our yogurts are made from dairy. We do not have any dairy free or plant based yogurt sachets currently in our range.
Unfortunately due to the barrier properties required to keep the milk powder and cultures at their best, our packaging cannot currently be recycled.
This is something really important to us, and we're working on identifying ways we can reduce our environmental impact.
We are really proud that our EasiYo Jars are reusable, and reduce the need for single use plastic pots.
Here at EasiYo we do not recommend eating anything after the best before date.
EasiYo is a living thing and can change with changes in the tap water temperature for example. Sometimes the yogurt needs to stay in the Yogurt Maker a little longer in order to set. Up to 24 hours is fine.
It is both pasteurised and also homogenised.
Halal certified shows that the raw materials that make up EasiYo product and the product themselves are prepared in an acceptable way to conform to Muslim custom. EasiYo has been audited and registered as Halal by the Islamic Process Food Management Division.
Once your baby has started on solids, EasiYo yogurt should be okay for your baby, however we recommend you always check with a health professional.
Lactose intolerance is different to being allergic to milk (cow's) protein. If you are lactose intolerant and not dairy intolerant EasiYo Yogurt may be fine for you to consume. Yogurt contains lower levels of lactose than regular milk since some of the lactose in the milk is converted into lactic acid during the fermentation process. Therefore people with a mild lactose intolerance may be able to consume and tolerate our EasiYo Yogurt. However we suggest you talk to your medical professional about the best approach for you.
The contents of the yogurt sachets vary by flavour. Our Unsweetened Greek Style for example only contains high quality milk powder and freeze dried lactic cultures. Our flavoured range also contain sugar, natural colours and natural flavourings. EasiYo Yogurt does not contain stabilisers, artificial colouring or additives. You just add clean drinking water. Please see individual packs for full ingredient lists.
You should not add flavours or sweeteners into the yogurt mix before it has fermented, as this can disrupt the pH balance and the culture activity.
However, you can add toppings or fruit once you have made your yogurt and you are ready to consume it.
We recommend you add natural sweeteners such as honey to your made-up yogurt when it is set to sweeten to your taste.
The fact that you make your yogurt fresh with EasiYo means you get the cultures from day one when they are freshest. Cultures have a limited lifetime so you will never get more cultures than when your Yogurt is freshly-made. Each serve of EasiYo yogurt contains billions! It is the cultures which have made EasiYo Yogurt so thick and why we don't need to use stabilisers or thickeners in our yogurt.
The cultures are freeze dried which means all the moisture is extracted and the cultures can 'hibernate' without losing much of their viability until they are 'reactivated' during the fermentation process inside the EasiYo Yogurt Maker.
Our packaging plays a really important role in keeping the ingredients in just the right conditions, ready for you to use. Find out more about this here
In order to grow, lactic cultures require heat and a source of milk sugar (lactose) on which to feed. They also have an optimal heat at which to grow. The unique EasiYo Yogurt Maker creates the controlled heat needed to activate all the lactic cultures present in the EasiYo Yogurt Mix Sachets. Our freeze dried cultures reactivate and divide in the perfect conditions in the EasiYo Yogurt Maker.

The EasiYo Yogurt sachets contain all the ingredients you need to make fresh yogurt - just adding water. There is no need to use a bought yogurt as a starter.
No this will be too cold. The ideal temperature to mix with your sachet of EasiYo Yogurt mix is 15-20°C.
The EasiYo system is designed to eliminate the hassles of incubating and stabilising milk. The yogurt sachets contain milk powder, so all you need to add is water.
Because EasiYo yogurt is a 'live' product and contains no thickening agents there can be a variation in normal setting times depending on how quickly the temperature changes inside the Yogurt Maker. This depends on the temperature of the water you mix your EasiYo Yogurt (15-20°C is ideal) and the outside temperature surrounding the actual Yogurt Maker. It is fine to leave for up to 24 hours.
Whey being 'expressed' from the yogurt is part of a natural process. Commercial chilled yogurts may contain thickeners and stabilisers to absorb the expressed whey, but as EasiYo Yogurt contains no such additives the whey is best mixed back into the yogurt as it is very nutritious. Alternatively, you can pour the whey off for a thicker yogurt.
Our yogurt sachets are designed specifically to work in the EasiYo Yogurt Maker, and we don't recommend using alternatives.
We cannot guarantee the quality of your final product if you have not used the EasiYo Yogurt Maker and followed the instructions on the sachet.
Once you have left your yogurt to set for 8 hours it will appear gelled together, but may not have a firm set until you have chilled it in the fridge for a couple of hours.
You may notice some 'watery' liquid on top - this is whey, a part of milk. EasiYo do not use any stabilisers, so there is sometimes some separation of the whey from the rest of the milk.
You can stir this back into your yogurt, or tip it off for a thicker yogurt (try pouring it into a smoothie rather than tipping it down the sink).
If your yogurt is completely runny - like milk texture, it may be that the water temperature you used to mix with the sachet was too warm. The best temperature to use is 15-20°C.
Please also check the best before date on your Yogurt Sachet. If the product has passed it's best before date, the product may not set.
