Made my first batch of homemade yogurt using whole milk and half&half in equal parts (2 qts.) in the Yogourmet. Turned out beautifully. I'm trying to figure out how to get this stuff to be thick. It is thick right out of the container, but once I drop in some fruit, honey, vanilla powder, it turns to a liquid. My daughter won't eat it this way. She is looking for a spoon thick yogurt in a bowl, like the commercial stuff. Is there any way to get it thick?
Last night, I dripped alot of it. Poured out the whey this morning. Blended and again - liquid immediately once blended. I know if I used gelatin powder this will not be SCD approved, but we're not on SCD right now so does this matter?
Also, is there any way to get it sweet? Honey did not do the trick. Neither did vanilla, bananas, or strawberries. It's so tart, my Crohn's daughter won't touch it.
