Instant Pot Soy Yogurt

I’ve finally mastered the art of soy yogurt! I’ve got to say, my husband is pretty proud! (He doesn’t eat dairy) 🙂  Now that i’ve got it down,  i’m finally ready to share my recipe for how to make soy yogurt in the Instant Pot. It’s so simple!


Soy Yogurt in the Instant Pot Recipe-

1. Heat 1 gallon of Soymilk to 180 degrees F. (Press ‘Yogurt’ button on the Instant Pot twice)
2. Whisk constantly.
3. Remove inner pot and cool to 115 degrees F.
4. Add 1/2 cup soy yogurt (starter), Put lid on Instant Pot (without inner seal) and set valve to ‘venting’.
5. Place inner pot into Instant Pot machine and press ‘yogurt’
6. Set time for 12-14 hours.
7. Turn off Instant Pot and pour yogurt into containers.
8. Place yogurt you’d like to thicken into strainer for 24-48 hours. You can find the strainer I use HERE.
9. Remove from strainer and add sweetener / fruits.
10. Enjoy your delicious Soy Yogurt! 🙂

    Hi Brittany, I just made your yogurt recipe and am super excited to try it. I was wondering if you had a recipe for yogurt using coconut milk. If so, I would love to get it so I can make it for my family visiting at the end of the month.

    Kindest regards,
    Christine Nunn

    How much starter do you use for this recipe? Is it just regular store bought plain unsweetened yogurt?

      For 1 gallon of soy milk use 1/2 cup of soy yogurt as your starter. I’ve used vanilla flavored before but ideally you’d use plain. 🙂

    Hi B! I made your yogurt recipe (using whole milk). I am wondering why you strain it overnight to remove the whey? I understood whey is full of protein

    I successfully made soy yogurt thanks to this post and your youtube video. I’ve never made yogurt before. It smelled great just like yogurt when I opened the lid. I added maple syrup and raspberries to sweeten it. It tastes fine like yogurt but there is a sour aftertaste. Like something left out of the fridge too long. Is this normal for homemade yogurt or should I not eat it?

      I kind of had the same thing happen. I’m thinking I might have cooked mine to long. I did a quart and about 2 oz of starter yougurt plus to probiotic pills.

    Hello There! I made this recipe last night and it was delicious. However, when I took off the lid, mine had separated and I had to stir to reincorporate. Is this typical? I did not remove the inner seal because you didn’t in the video. Is that what caused it? Thanks so much. 🙂

    Yeah, apparently my instant pot just sat there and did absolutely nothing for twelve hours. I had trouble when I got to step five because when I pressed yogurt once it didn’t give me the option of setting the time so I pressed it twice instead. After that it seems like the heat didn’t even make it high enough to do more than keep it luke warm. What did I do wrong?

    I made this last night but when I tried to stain it in my yogurt strainer it just all went right through. Do you cool it before staining it by chance? I bought a different yogurt strainer than you used, but a yogurt strainer none the less.

    My instant pot doesn’t have a yogurt button, do you know how to make this in an instant pot without a yogurt button?
