How to make homemade yogurt without yogurt maker

This is the magic formula, the incredible recipe for you to learn how to make homemade yogurt firm or liquid without yogurt maker.

I love dairy! Among them the yogurt, since it is super versatile and has excellent benefits for our body . If we consume it in ideal quantities and with the correct combinations, we will absorb calcium, reduce our cholesterol and even act as a generator to create tolerance to lactose.

This is why I think it is a good idea to learn to prepare Homemade yogurt , in addition to cooking at home should be part of our personal goal to lead a healthier life.

Before starting this recipe, I was a little doubtful, because there are so many ways of making homemade yogurt and of course, there are family recipes. And all, absolutely all (including that of my mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin) proclaim themselves "the best". This caused me great grace but at the same time it gave me a lot of confidence to know that I have so many options to prepare it.

Finally I decided to prepare a recipe that would allow me to make yogurt with a firm or liquid consistency (according to my whim), Make it quick, with less effort and ingredients and most importantly; without messing up my kitchen.

I noticed that they all used two ingredients: milk (powder or liquid) and commercial yogurt. But they had something slightly different in the way of heating it because they did it at room temperature, oven or fire. However, the objective is always the same; achieve the ideal temperature and consistency you want in your yogurt, as do the yogurt makers.

I used the following recipe and achieved a rich result, so I recommend them.
