EasiYo is so simple to make, just follow the three step process and you'll have fresh, delicious yogurt at home. It's that easy.
Half-fill your yogurt jar with room temperature, drinking water. Add the contents of a yogurt sachet, pop on the lid and give it a good shake. Fill the jar up with more water to about 5mm from the top... and shake again.
Push the plastic insert spacer down inside the Yogurt Maker as far as it can go. (Check the correct side is facing up). Pour boiling water into the Yogurt Maker to the top of the plastic insert spacer.
Put your jar into the Yogurt Maker so that it sits on top of the plastic insert. The boiling water will rise part-way up the sides of the jar. Put the Yogurt Maker lid on and leave it on your kitchen worktop for 8 to 12 hours (or overnight) to let the yogurt set... and the magic will happen!
In order to grow, lactic cultures require heat and a source of milk sugar (lactose) on which to feed. They also have an optimal heat at which to grow (between 40-50 degrees C).The unique EasiYo Yogurt Maker creates the controlled heat needed to activate all the LACTIC CULTURES present in the EasiYo Yogurt Mix Sachets. Our freeze dried cultures reactivate and divide in the perfect conditions in the EasiYo Yogurt Maker.
Yes. The entire EasiYo yogurt maker including lunch-takers and 1 litre jars are manufactured from US and UK FDA approved polypropylene grade. All parts are completely free from polycarbonate and BP.
Although the EasiYo Yogurt Maker has been made to withstand constant and tough handling, there may be some parts (such as the yogurt jar lid) that may get damaged, in which case you can contact EasiYo Head Office for a replacement.
If you have lost your EasiYo Yogurt Jar, or would like another one, you can buy them directly from our website here.
Clean with a damp cloth only. Do not immerse the Yogurt Maker in water.
Yes, our EasiYo Reusable Pouches are BPA Free.
They are also safe to use in the dishwasher and the freezer.
No, all our yogurts are made from dairy. We do not have any dairy free or plant based yogurt sachets currently in our range.
Unfortunately due to the barrier properties required to keep the milk powder and cultures at their best, our packaging cannot currently be recycled.
This is something really important to us, and we're working on identifying ways we can reduce our environmental impact.
We are really proud that our EasiYo Jars are reusable, and reduce the need for single use plastic pots.
All EasiYo yogurts contain Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus acidophilus. Some products also contain the Bifidobacteria strain. The combination gives EasiYo its wonderful taste and texture.
Here at EasiYo we do not recommend eating anything after the best before date.
EasiYo is a living thing and can change with changes in the tap water temperature for example. Sometimes the yogurt needs to stay in the Yogurt Maker a little longer in order to set. Up to 24 hours is fine.
It is both pasteurised and also homogenised.
Once your baby has started on solids, EasiYo yogurt should be okay for your baby, however we recommend you always check with a health professional.
Lactose intolerance is different to being allergic to milk (cow's) protein. If you are lactose intolerant and not dairy intolerant EasiYo Yogurt may be fine for you to consume. Yogurt contains lower levels of lactose than regular milk since some of the lactose in the milk is converted into lactic acid during the fermentation process. Therefore people with a mild lactose intolerance may be able to consume and tolerate our EasiYo Yogurt. However we suggest you talk to your medical professional about the best approach for you.
The contents of the yogurt sachets vary by flavour. Our Unsweetened Greek for example only contains high quality milk powder and freeze dried lactic cultures. Our flavoured range also contain sugar, natural colours and natural flavourings. EasiYo Yogurt does not contain stabilisers, artificial colouring or additives. You just add clean drinking water. Please see individual packs for full ingredient lists.
No, because it upsets the pH balance in the yogurt which can disrupt the culture activity. This defeats the purpose of making fresh yogurt. However you can add whatever you like to your made-up EasiYo Yogurt. For instance, it is a great accompaniment to cereal and fresh or stewed fruit.
We recommend you add natural sweeteners such as honey to your made-up yogurt when it is set to sweeten to your taste.
The fact that you make your yogurt fresh with EasiYo means you get the cultures from day one when they are freshest. Cultures have a limited lifetime so you will never get more cultures than when your Yogurt is freshly-made. A spoonful of EasiYo yogurt contains billions! It is the cultures which have made EasiYo Yogurt so thick and why we don't need to use stabilisers or thickeners in our yogurt.
The number of live cultures is at its highest on the day that you make your EasiYo Yogurt. One spoon of freshly-made EasiYo Yogurt contains over 1 billion live cultures. The tests on our yogurts indicate there are billions of live cultures still present in every spoonful even at the end of these two weeks.
The EasiYo Yogurt sachets contain all the ingredients you need to make fresh yogurt - just adding water. There is no need to use a bought yogurt as a starter.
Neither of these methods is recommended because of their unreliability. EasiYo simply makes it safer and easier, and it works every time!
Whey being 'expressed' from the yogurt is part of a natural process. Commercial chilled yogurts may contain thickeners and stabilisers to absorb the expressed whey, but as EasiYo Yogurt contains no such additives the whey is best mixed back into the yogurt as it is very nutritious. Alternatively, you can pour the whey off for a thicker yogurt.
The EasiYo system is designed to eliminate the hassles of incubating and stabilising milk. The EasiYo system is designed to make yogurt easy so that you make delicious yogurt every time. Of course, you can make yogurt any way you like to, but it may be more time-consuming and difficult.
Once you have left your yogurt to set for 8 hours it will appear gelled together, but may not have a firm set until you have chilled it in the fridge for a couple of hours.
You may notice some 'watery' liquid on top - this is whey, a part of milk. EasiYo do not use any stabilisers, so there is sometimes some separation of the whey from the rest of the milk.
You can stir this back into your yogurt, or tip it off for a thicker yogurt (try pouring it into a smoothie rather than tipping it down the sink).
If your yogurt is completely runny - like milk texture, it may be that the water temperature you used to mix with the sachet was too warm. The best temperature to use is 15-20°C.
Please also check the best before date on your Yogurt Sachet. If the product has passed it's best before date, the product may not set.

Due to the special formulation with higher protein, it takes a little longer for the cultures to work their magic!
We recommend 12-16 hours for your yogurt to set. Remember to chill it for a couple of hours before you eat it.

We also have a Coconut Flavoured Protein Yogurt. This one has coconut bits in it too. It doesn't have a lot of sugar added, so it still meets the 5☆ Health Star Rating, and is delicious on its own or added to smoothies.
