Summer is right around the corner which means you can once again start having your favorite super-food, yogurt! We already know homemade yogurt is the healthiest and most delicious when prepared in pure clay. Now that many are staying home and may have some extra time at hand, you could try it, if you haven’t already:
3 great reasons why yogurt is good for you
Yogurt is cooling, soothing, nutritious, and light – just the kind of food your taste-buds are longing in the summer. But that is not all, healthy homemade yogurt, made in a 100% non-toxic pure clay pot like Miriams Earthen cookware, has a lot more to offer:
Immune boosting probiotic
The probiotics in homemade yogurt boost your immune system and provide a substantial defense against viral infections and other disease-causing pathogens. These also improve your stamina and enhance overall body strength by supplying essential nutrients. But of course, the yogurt must be made at home using healthy pure clay pot because the store bought yogurt is heavily processed and lacks probiotics and nutrients.
Cooling to the body
Yogurt has a great cooling effect on the body which is exactly what your body needs to beat the heat. There are so many dishes with yogurt as their key ingredient, like yogurt and berries, cold lassi/yogurt shake, yogurt salad dressing, and so on. Because of the wide variety of ways you can enjoy this super-food, you never get bored of it!
Delicious, nutritious, and healthy superfood.
MEC yogurt tastes delicious – all thanks to the 100% non-toxic and semi-porous walls of pure clay pot which lets excess water evaporate and keeps yogurt healthy, thick and creamy. You do not need to add any artificial sugars or flavoring agents because MEC yogurt tastes amazing just the way it is! Of course, you can combine it with a variety of fruits and vegetables without compromising on its health value.
How to make it in MEC pots?
Like said before, store bought yogurt is a big no-no if you want to get all the health value and nutrition yogurt has to offer. All you need is an MEC pot and follow this simple 10-minutes hands-on process:
- Heat the milk to just before boiling point(till you see tiny bubbles cover the surface of milk). Turn stove off, open lid and let it cool down for 30 minutes or so, for half a gallon of milk. In 20-30 mins, put your cleaned pinky finger in the milk and if you can hold it there for 5 seconds, the milk is ready for the culture.
- Add yogurt culture and stir thoroughly (avoid powdered cultures, live cultures from the previous batch are best or you can use organic yogurt from the store).
- Set in the oven with the lid on, and oven light on.
Let it incubate for 6-8 hours and the yogurt is ready! The longer it stays in MEC pot, the thicker it becomes. There is no need to add any additive or artificial sweetener, so the yogurt remains 100% healthy and nutritious.
