So, here's the recipe:
Total work time for you: about 5-10 min! the crock does the rest!
The first time you will need to but 1 cup of plain yogurt (I used the greek plain), after that, you simply take out 1 cup from the batch you made and set aside for the next batch.
after you set aside the cup for the next batch, you can add different flavors. I mixed mine with some vanilla extract, and some with frozon blueberries thawed.
the cheapest organic yogurt is about $3/quart (on the cheap side)
I used 1/2 gallon (2 quarts) organic whole milk $3
basically cuts the yogurt budget in half if not more! and tastes so yummy!
