Making yogurt in an Instant Pot is a quick and easy way to enjoy this delicious snack. Follow these simple steps to get started:
Add one cup of milk to the Instant Pot insert. Add one tablespoon of live culture yogurt or one packet of store-bought yogurt starter. Close the lid and set the valve to sealing.

To do so, place the yogurt in an airtight container and freeze. When you’re ready to eat it, thaw it in the fridge overnight.
