Instant Pot No Boil Yogurt

52 Oz. Fairlife Ultra-filtered milk (whole or 2%)
2 T. Fage plain yogurt (regular or 2%)
1 can sweetened condensed milk (optional)
1 t. vanilla (optional)

1. Clean/sterilize Instant Pot.

2. Add milk and yogurt and whisk together.

3. Set Instant Pot to yogurt “normal” cycle. Set time for 8-9 hours. Flavor is stronger if you cook longer. I cook for 8 1/2 hours.

4. When cycle is done, remove and refrigerate in Instant Pot overnight. Stir well after it’s cooled.

If you use the first 2 ingredients you will have a yogurt similar to a plain greek yogurt. If you use all 4 ingredients you will have a sweet, vanilla yogurt.

Tastes great with fruit, lemon curd or honey.
