Easy Cold Start Instant Pot (IP) Yogurt

Updated: Sep 12, 2023

Prep Time: 5mins Cook Time: 6-9hrs Cook Setting: Yogurt Button on Instant Pot


1 half gallon whole fair life milk

*1 4oz greek yogurt cup of choice (my tried and true is a vanilla Oui cup of yogurt. Also, the Publix brand vanilla greek cup works great too)

16oz Nestle Natural Bliss Vanilla Creamer

1/2 8oz can sweet and condensed milk

(optional) 1 tsp ground cinnamon

*this will serve as the 'starter' for the yogurt*


In your IP cooking pot, with power off, combine all ingredients together while whisking. Seal the lid in the vented setting and press the "YOGURT" setting button. I prefer the flavor of the 9 hour cook time. It has a bit tangier of a flavor like Greek yogurt but is still sweet and smooth like the low fat yogurts you can get in the store.


-For fruit flavored yogurts, my family uses a spoonful or two of the Simply Natural pie fillings in the bottom of our yogurt bowls. I opt for this specific brand of pie filling because it is dye free and does not have high fructose corn syrup in it. You can also just top with fresh fruit and/or granola for a great flavor as well.

-I reuse the Oui cups since they are glass and have found some nifty lids off amazon that fit these perfectly. You can find these lids here :
