After the milk has sat for 3 hours scoop out 2 cups of the warm milk into a bowl. Add 1/2 cup of dannon plain yogurt -this is your yogurt feeder. The next time you make it you will have your own feeder.(with live active cultures)
Add one box of jello (some don't use any flavoring or some use flavored pudding for creamer yogurt-depends on your taste)
whisk and whisk and whisk
Add yogurt, jello and milk mixture back into the crock pot and cover with a towel and blanket.
Wait 8 to 9 hours before peaking!
Dip out 1/2 cup and save for your next yogurt feeder so you don't have to keep purchasing Dannon plain yogurt with live active cultures.
Add strawberries and bananas or fruit puree of your choice. My kids don't like any lumps in their yogurt so we pureed our fruit all the way up until it was smooth. We added a little sugar because my kids are used to Trix yogurt! Some people add honey to sweeten!
This will last 7-10 days in the fridge. Your feeder will last the same.
This recipe made 24 1/2 cups! I actually did a little math this is approx. 09 cents per container. I paid 52 cents per container of Trix yogurt last week with a coupon!
