Sous Vide Yogurt

This recipe was inspired by my stay at Rock Cliff Mansion in Hannibal MO in September 2017.  Each morning we ate a delicious 3 course breakfast in the opulent dining room.  The 1st course was always a yogurt parfait served in a exquisite gold rimmed stemmed glass.  | www.lakesidetable.com

  • 8 cups whole milk
  • 8 tablespoons yogurt starter or plain greek yogurt with live yogurt cultures
  • 8 Earl Grey tea bags optional
  • Equipment
  • Sous Vide
  • 4 mason jars with lids


  1. Fill sous vide with water and set temperature to 180.
  2. Put 1 cup milk and a tea bag in each mason jar.  Screw the lids on tightly.  Make sure you leave room to stir in 1 tablespoon yogurt.
  3. Put the mason jars into the sous vide.  Once the temperature has reached 180, let them remain in the bath for 45 minutes.
  4. Lower the sous vide temperature to 110F.  Once the temperature has been reached, let the jars stay in the water for 15-30 minutes.*
  5. Take the jars out of the water, take out the tea bags and discard.  Stir in 1 tablespoon yogurt or yogurt starter in each jar.  Seal the lids back on the jars and put them back in the water bath.
  6. Increase the temperature to 115F and incubate yogurt for 12-24 hours.**
  7. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

Recipe Notes

*To cool the water faster, I pour out some of it and replace it with tap water.

**The longer the yogurt is incubated the thicker it will be.

Yogurt is fun to play around with all sorts of flavorings.  Try different teas, cinnamon, vanilla bean, or cardamon pods.  Or keep it plain and add honey, granola and berries when you sit down to enjoy it.
