Instant Pot Yoghurt

Ever wondered what the yoghurt button on your multi/pressure cooker does? Now you know!
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 8 hrs
Refrigerating Time 1 hr
Total Time 9 hrs 10 mins


  • 1 Instant pot (or multi/pressure cooker)


  • 3 tbsp plain yoghurt
  • 600 mls warm water (36 degrees)
  • 1 ½ cups skim milk powder


  • Pour the warm water into the bowl of your magic pot.
  • Whisk in the skim milk powder.
    If your have a teflon bowl then use a silicon coated whisk, or whisk in a jug before adding it to the bowl. You don't want to scratch the teflon.
  • Lastly add the plain yoghurt and combine all the ingredients.
  • Place the lid on and place in the lock position.
  • Press the 'yoghurt' setting and walk away.
    I like to make my yoghurt overnight when I won't need the magic pot for other tasks.
  • Remove the bowl from the pot and cover with a dinner plate before placing in the fridge.
  • Once it is chilled give the yoghurt a stir until it is smooth and creamy.
  • Store in a glass jar in the fridge.
  • Please note this recipe is easily doubled for a much larger batch.
