You can clearly purchase single cups of yogurt at the grocery store but let me tell you, nothing quite compares to homemade yogurt. While yogurt does require several hours to create, the Instant Pot does it effortlessly and most of that time is spent hands off.
There are two different methods, the cold start method, and the boil method. It’s important to note that this recipe uses the boil method. Prepare a large batch of yogurt and then transfer to small jars so that you’ll have a healthy and delicious on-the-go breakfast!
