  • Pour the almond milk into the Instant Pot. With the lid off, set the pot to the "yogurt, high temperature" setting. Whisking occasionally, let the milk come to 180°F (82°C).
  • The high yogurt setting should turn off when the milk reaches 180°F (82°C). Check the temp with a candy thermometer. If your Instant Pot runs a little cold, use the high sauté setting to finish getting the milk to 180°F (82°C). Whisk the milk constantly when using this setting so it doesn’t burn.
  • Remove the inner pot of the Instant Pot from the heat. Let the milk cool on the counter to 105-110°F (40.6-43.3°C), whisking occasionally.
  • After cooling, remove one cup of the almond milk and add in the yogurt, whisking until smooth. Then whisk this yogurt mixture back into the larger pot of milk. It is very important NOT to add the yogurt until the milk cools to 105°-110°F (40.6-43.3°C). Adding the yogurt too early will kill the live and active cultures, resulting in a failed batch.
  • Put the lid on the Instant Pot but leave the vent open. Incubate almond yogurt for 8.5 hours using the “low yogurt” setting of the Instant Pot. 
  • If your yogurt still looks like almond milk after the incubation period, you have a failed batch. I recommend throwing it out and starting again. One of the most common errors in yogurt making is not getting the temperatures right; that is why the candy thermometer is a must. Using yogurt that contains live, active cultures as a starter is also critical.
  • If the yogurt has thickened nicely after the incubation period, put it in glass canning jars. Let cool in the refrigerator for at least 6-8 hours before eating.


This is a level 1 recipe (may help support fat loss). Plain, unsweetened yogurt is protein-packed and an excellent choice for weight loss. This recipe makes four 1-cup servings. Cut your portion down to ½ cup if you want a snack that is under 100 calories.
Plain yogurt is one of the most versatile ingredients around, excellent in both sweet and savory recipes. Try it as a replacement for sour cream or mayo, or enjoy with some fruit and 1-2 tablespoons of nuts. Yum!
