I’m excited to share this simple and delicious, protein and probiotic-rich soy yogurt recipe made in my Euro Cuisine yogurt maker (pictured below). I have actually found it quite easy to switch to non-dairy with substitutes like these. I’ve seen several other types of yogurt makers since using mine. Some only use one container like this one from Cuisinart which is also very handy.
At about 100 calories in one cup of Westsoy soy milk, this could become your go-to for breakfast, dessert, or as a base for your favorite creamy dressing.
This recipe is so simple, useful and dynamic, it will re-frame the way you think about meal prepping.
Now, on to making this delightfully decadent dairy-free recipe. Homemade soy yogurt can end up being too thin so using cornstarch to make the yogurt thicker works well. Start with about 3 tablespoons and see if it’s to your liking.
You’ll need to use a yogurt starter. I’ve used the Yogurmet brand that I purchased from the store, but you can also find several starters at Amazon. Once you heat up the soy milk, you’ll then add the starter, a little date, or maple syrup if you’re using unsweetened soy milk and pour it into your container(s). It’s as easy as that!
Now you’re ready to enjoy your homemade soy yogurt. Think about it in your oatmeal sprinkled with berries and a few nuts, in your smoothies or salad dressings or to top this homemade granola recipe.

If you think that yogurt making is out because you don’t have a yogurt maker, guess what, you can still make yogurt! Here are 10 ways to culture yogurt without a yogurt maker.
Here’s a delicious and beautiful yogurt and granola parfait that’s fun for guests or a simple breakfast. Fresh vanilla bean, a sprinkling of cinnamon and cacao nibs will take this recipe over the top and make a rich and decadent nutrient-rich dessert.
With this basic soy yogurt recipe you just might end up making it every week and keep it as a staple. Enjoy!

Homemade Soy Yogurt
- 3 Tbl cornstarch
- 1 32 oz box unsweetened soy milk not chilled
- 1-2 Tbl maple syrup
- 1 package yogurt Starter
- Add 2 cups of soy milk to a saucepan and start heating over medium-low heat. Be careful while heating because it can boil up over the edge of the pan if you're not watching or heat it too quickly.
- Pour 1/2 cup of cold soy milk into a measuring cup and whisk in 3 Tbl. cornstarch.
- Once the milk in the saucepan starts to steam, whisk in the cornstarch mixture. Continue to heat to 148 degrees and whisk until it starts to thicken slightly.
