I love Silk Yogurt. I eat the Strawberry or Raspberry flavor every day for lunch. Wegmans has it for $0.69 a cup, which is much more reasonable than Giant's $1.19 per cup. However, I buy Plain by the quart any time they have it in stock. I'll add Splenda, Maple Syrup, or other flavors (mint-lime, strawberry jam, vanilla, chocolate, blueberry, lemon, etc.)
This got me thinking that since it is much more economical to buy it by the quart, it is probably even more economical to make it myself.
I did some reseach online and found this Salton Yogurt Maker on Amazon.
It seems easy enough - you would add soymilk and some plain yogurt, warm in a pot, pour into the maker, turn it on, and 10 hours later you would have some home made soy yogurt.
Here are my concerns:
Will it be smooth and creamy like Silk? Will it be thick? Will it separate, especially if I bring it to lunch? Will it have the same nutritional value as store-bought Silk?
Has anyone had experience making their own soy yogurt?
I'm on the fence.
