EasiYo Yogurt Maker

A while ago we were invited to the Good Housekeeping kitchen in Central London, which was being taken over by EasiYo, the home yogurt making company! Taste testing and learning how the yogurt is made was the order of the day, which appealed very much to me and the kids 🙂

I love yogurt and tend to buy quite a lot. I like the big tubs that I can chuck over granola and fruit but they do go off rather quickly, so I was very impressed to learn that the EasiYo yogurt that you make at home lasts more than two weeks!

At the event we were shown how easy it is to prepare the yogurt in the very simple EasiYo Yogurt Maker. The maker itself has been around for more than 23 years, but this is a new design, the first re-design in it’s history!

Tasting the yogurt came next! I know, it a tough job but someone’s got to do it!

There are so many flavours…. they have an extensive Everyday Range that includes all the favourits such as cherry,  strawberry and vanilla, to name a few, but also there are flavours like toffee or caramel – yummy! There is a Nutritious Range which includes all those extra cultures that aid digestion. Then they have the Gourmet range. This one mixes things up a bit and includes real fruit pieces too!

We were very kindly given our own EasiYo Yogurt Maker to try at home and the kids couldn’t wait to give it a go!

It couldn’t be simpler to us. Fill up the jar half way with room temperature water, add the yogurt powder then shake! Top up with more water, shake, then it’s ready to go into the Maker. Pour boiling water into the Maker so that it covers the top curves of the spacer, pop in the jar, put on the lid and leave on your kitchen side for 8-12 hours!

Et voila! All that’s needed is to give it a good stir and it’s ready to go!

The consistency is perfect and the flavour was absolutely delicious – it was from the Gourmet range, Greek Style Yogurt with Coconut bits! Divine!

And if you’re wondering what the point of making your own yogurt in this way is, instead of buying it…. well, unlike shop bought varieties, the EasiYo Yogurt is completely free from preservatives and contains billions, not just millions, of those precious LIVE cultures. It also lasts much longer and it’s certainly more fun to make it yourself! My children loved it!

The EasiYo Yogurt Maker can be bought at a number of outlets including Lakeland, where you can buy a starter kit including the maker and 2 sachets of yogurt powder for only £18.98.

  1. I received one of these for my birthday and love it. We eat lots of yogurt in our house so it has saved us some pennies and the kids enjoy helping to make yogurt too.

    This looks great. I want one now

  3. Sarah Archibald says:

    Oh it seems this has come a long way since its first launch years ago! We purchased one, i’m sure there were only a few flavours available at the time, and it was awful! I may reconsider now as I love the idea of making our own 🙂

  4. This looks good – keep meaning to get one of these!

  5. Cathy prescott says:

    This looks delicious as I love yogurt, may pop it on my Xmas list from the kids x

  6. I have just recently got one of these and haven’t used it yet so this is really helpful! I think it’s time to give it a try!!

  7. My mum has one of these and I love it, so much nicer than shop bought and my 3 year old loves shaking it to mix the powder with the water.

  8. This looks great I will have to give them a try.

  9. Krystina Bowman says:

    I’ve heard so much hype about these on Facebook & Twitter! I really want to give it a try, my daughter eats so much yogurt! xx

  10. I have this on my Christmas list this year, I spend a fortune on yoghurts and am really looking forward to having a go at making my own.

    i have tried something similar sometime ago and it was truly awful. I would certainly give this a try though as it has received very good reviews

Please leave a comment... I try to reply to each and every one :)
