MAKE YOUR OWN YOGURT WITH EASIYO

Hiya,

Sorry I'm a little late with this week's post, I've had some technical issues with my laptop so I can't get any pictures off my DSLR. Luckily I has these pictures saved on my computer already but I should be posting all my new photos by next week #bloggerprobs lol. One of the things I've missed since moving back to Nigeria is fresh yogurt. A few months ago I looked into the yogurt making process but was completely put off by the complexity. Then one day while I was shopping on the Holland and Barrett website I saw a link to some Easiyo yogurt bases, did some research and I'm happy to report its now one of my favourite kitchen appliances.

Easiyo is an Australian product that lets you make your own fresh yogurt at home. Its so easy, cheap and perfect for us in Nigeria that don't have constant electricity because you can make as little or as much as you want and not have to worry about it spoiling. I cannot stress how EASY this is! It's only 3 steps and you literally just need to add water. I got my Easiyo yogurt maker from Amazon here for £11.99 and I got the sachets from Holland and Barrett here for £3.15 each. (The Easiyo yogurt base is on offer now, 2 pcks for £4.72 so I'll be stocking up). Holland and Barrett don't deliver to Nigeria but never fear Amazon sells the yogurt bases too:)

Inside your Easiyo Yogurt Maker
Fill your Easiyo jar halfway with cool drinking water, pour in the contents of your Easiyo sachet. Cover the jar with the lid and shake well. Then fill up with more water to the 5mm line

Fill the Easiyo flask with boiling water, pop the jar in and cover with the lid for 8-12 hours
8-12 hours later, fresh creamy yogurt

I am in LOVE with Easiyo! There are no artificial ingredients and they have soooo many different flavours to try you can't get bored. (FYI each sachet makes 1kg of yogurt which is about 4-5 servings). The low fat Greek yogurt is really sour but its fine with a little honey, the coconut bits flavour is delicious and I still haven't tried the Sweet Greek one yet. I've also been playing around with different toppings but my favourite so far is  granola and  dark chocolate chunks (pictured) - its so so good! I'm also excited to see how freezing it would turn out too. FYI each sachet makes 1kg of yogurt which is about 4-5 servings. I like having yogurt as a snack, or with granola its a good breakfast and I put some in my green smoothies too. You can also use yogurt as a substitute for mayonnaise and hundreds of other low fat recipes.

For more information you can check out the official Easiyo website Let me know if you try this and what your favourite yogurt toppings are.

    I really can't thank you enough. I feel like each time I'm fretting about how to substitue one food in Nigeria, a few hours/days later, I stumble upon a Nigerian blogger who's found a solution. Yesterday I discovered where to get almond milk in V.I through a blogger because I wasn't sure how much almonds cost to do it myself. The other day it was where to find stevia (but no solution yet so i'm probably going to have to manage my sugar intake), and now its yogurt!

    Curious though, do you order from Amazon UK to Lagos? How much extra do you pay and how long does it take?

    Thanks for your posts o, I for one really appreciate them.

  2. Easiyo is a fav at home for us, we tend to stock up on the bases when ever any of us travel to the UK. I am sorry a lot of yogurts made in Nigeria are way too sweet so Easiyo is a life saver.
