Instant Pot Yogurt with Fruit – 3 Points

First order of business: This recipe assumes your Instant Pot does not have an automatic Yogurt Setting. Mine does not, so I had to bumble through and figure out how to make it without. If yours does have that setting, you should follow the manufacturers directions.

Now, yogurt making in an Instant Pot is kinda a lengthy process, as it takes roughly 9 hours to cook the yogurt. But, it is DELICIOUS so it will be well worth it. You just need to make it at a time when you won't be needing your IP for other things. I make mine over night!

Instant Pot Yogurt With Fruit

This homemade yogurt is so delicious and handy to make in your Instant Pot! It does take some time, but it is well worth it!

It makes roughly 24 1/2 Cup Servings – 3 Points Each
Keep in mind nut toppings, granola, etc. will add points so remember to count them

Yields: 24 1/2 Cup Servings, roughly

  • This recipe assumes you have an Instant Pot with no Yogurt Setting as mine does not have one. If yours does, you can simply follow manufacturers directions.
  • 1 Gallon Milk - I use 2% milk.
  • ½ C Plain Yogurt - any brand you like
  • 2 Tbsp. Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 2 C. Fruit (bananas, blueberries, raspberries, peaches, strawberries)

Heat the milk (uncovered) in Instant Pot on WARM setting for 40 Minutes

Whisk the milk and change setting to saute. Stir often, and use thermometer to check until milk reaches 185 degrees F

Unplug the pressure cooker, remove the lid and use oven mitts to remove inner pot and set it on the counter or stove.

Cool the milk to 115* degrees F. It takes about an hour.

Once cooled, return inner pot back inside the base and plug in.

Using a non-wire whisk, mix in 1/2 cup yogurt and 2 tablespoons vanilla bean paste.

Cover the Instant Pot, close the pressure vent and wrap the IP with a towel so it is fully covered. Let sit for 8 hours.

Now scoop yogurt into individual glass jars or bowls and refrigerate until chilled

To serve, add your favorite fruit topping (on top or bottom - or both), sliced or slivered almonds, diced hard boiled egg, granola, syrup, honey etc.!!

  1. Just a note. My son has Type One Diabetes. In order to keep carbs down we add pureed fruit (1/4 to 1/3 cup) but not any additional sugar. It works great this way too.

  2. I’ve never hear of an instapot! The yogurt looks great and I’m sure it tastes even better. :) Thanks for sharing at Your Inspired Design!

  3. We LOVE making our own yogurt it is a winner in our house, we use raw milk for ours. I don’t strain it either mainly because I’ve always been afraid of how big of a mess it would make lol. Sharing with my viewers!! Thanks for linking up with Inspire Me Monday. Have a blessed weekend!!

  4. I’ve never ever thought of making my own yogurt and thought the process would take far too long. This is an awesome recipe! Thanks for linking up with Delicious Dishes Recipe Party!

  5. One, I’ve never heard of one of these before and two, I’ve never thought to make my own yogurt! How stinking smart and delicious! Thanks for linking up with Delicious Dishes Recipe Party!

  6. You need to use a fine metal sieve and a couple layers of cheese cloths when straining. I always strain to get a thicker, greek type yogurt. All that should come off when straining is a yellowish liquid (whey). There are many uses for this as well!

  7. Do any other pressure cookers have the yogurt button? Function? Like the IP.
    I would like to know if any other brands can do the yogurt incubating and boiling

    1. Several of the electric pressure cookers have the yogurt button. Before purchasing mine this month (Jan 2019), I researched 4 – the Mealthy Multi pot, Instant Pot Duo Plus, Potastic, and Yedi electric pressure cookers. All four of these have the yogurt button. Actually there was very little difference between these 4 cookers. The primary difference was price and the number of accessories provided with the initial purchase.

  8. I am super excited about trying this recipe! One question though: About how long do you strain the yogurt for?
