Bananas About Homemade Yogurt!

Rated as 4.4 out of 5 Stars

"To be totally honest, I didn't think this recipe was going to turn out. I had never added fruit to the ingredients before adding them to my yogurt maker. When I tasted the yogurt, it was really thick, creamy and delicious! And what kid doesn't love bananas? This is a great way to get more fruit into your kid!!"

  1. Pour the milk into a pan, and heat over medium heat until small bubbles form around the edge of the pan and milk is just below the boiling point. Do not let the milk boil. Remove from heat and cool. Skim off any skin that forms on the milk.
  2. Pour the cooled milk into a yogurt maker, and stir in the yogurt, vanilla, and bananas. Cook according to manufacturer's directions, or at least 4 hours . If desired, strain yogurt through a fine sieve or coffee filter to remove the whey, and return to the yogurt maker. Refrigerate the yogurt overnight or another 8 hours to thicken further.


  • Editor's Note
  • If you don't have an electric yogurt maker to make yogurt at home, follow this alternate method. Simply pour the milk and yogurt mixture into a sealable 1 glass or metal quart container. Cover, and set in a warm place for 12 to 15 hours. Use a gas oven (turned off), or even a heating pad to maintain a constant temperature. When the yogurt has set, refrigerate and chill thoroughly before serving.

This is my recipe, and I heat the milk in the microwave until it's just about to boil, then all all ingredients to the yogurt maker and stir thoroughly. I then set the yogurt maker for 4 hours. ...

This is a great recipe. I have made it mixing 2% milk with either skim or 1% and it comes out just as well. It is not a thick yogurt but very good nonetheless. (I don't straign the whey - mor...

I didn't like the flavor of this. The texture was fine, but I expected more banana flavor, but it tasted to me like plain yogurt with a too heavy taste of vanilla and not much banana. I think a ...

Love this! Soo GOOD!

I didn't use a yogurt maker, so mine took almost 48 hours to achieve the thick texture I wanted, like Greek yogurt. I didn't add the vanilla or banana until the yogurt had completely drained, I...
