How To Make Instant Pot Almond Milk Yogurt
Make sure the Instant Pot is clean and sanitized before making yogurt. You could get mold if the device isn't properly cleaned.
To make homemade yogurt, start by filling your Instant Pot with milk and switching it to yogurt mode. Continue to press until it says "boil" and cook until it reaches 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Add the gelatin and flour after cooking is completed. Remove the inner pot from the Instant Pot while it's still hot. Allow the inside of the Instant Pot to cool down. Once it's cooled, skim the skin off the top of the milk.
In a small bowl, mix spoonfuls of pre-made yogurt until combined well, and then add it to the milk. Set the inner pot of the Instant Pot back in and turn on the yogurt function once again.
It takes anywhere from 12 to 16 hours to cook a batch of yogurt, depending on how thick you like it. After cooking, refrigerate until ready to consume.
Enjoy yogurt with some honey, fruit, granola, and other goodies when ready to eat.

Don’t Forget To Come Back And Let Me Know How Your Almond Milk Yogurt In The Instant Pot Turned Out!
Instant Pot Almond Milk Yogurt
- ½ gallon almond milk (homemade almond milk will come out thicker where store bought will come out thinner. All in the preference!)
- 3 tbsp plain almond yogurt with live active cultures
- 2 tbsp gelatin There are Vegan options, the easiest replacement is Agar Agar which is my preference.
- 4 tbsp arrowroot flour
- Clean and sterilize all of your equipment, especially the ring in your IP. You could risk getting mold if it is not completely sterilized.
- Add milk to your Instant Pot. Close the lid on your Instant Pot.
- Press Yogurt mode and continue to press until it displays "BOIL". This will take about 45 minutes. It should be at 180 degrees Fahrenheit. If it does not, press"Saute" on your Instant Pot while stirring until it reaches 180 degrees. Add in your gelatin and arrowroot. Mix well.
- Remove the inner pot once you have reached the degree and let it cool. You can speed up the cooling process by placing the pot in cold water, or ice water(I place it in the sink with cold water). Allow it to cool until 115 degrees.
- Skim the skin off your milk, and discard. In a small bowl, add a few spoonsful to your already made 3 tbsp yogurt. Mix well, then add to your inner pot. Mix well.
- Bring our inner pot back to the Instant Pot. Press "Yogurt" function, and up the time to 12 hours (when the Instant Pot has started yogurt function, it will not count down line pressure cooking. It will count up to 12 hours.). If you like your yogurt thicker, you can up the time to 16 hours.
- After the time has completed, transfer the inner pot to your refrigerator to cool for at least 6-8 hours.
- Top with honey, fruits, granola, and more! Enjoy!
