Making Homemade Yogurt is as Easi(Yo) as 1 - 2 - 3

Our family loves yogurt.  We've been having this healthy treat for years now.  And although not a lot of people appreciate it's slightly tart taste, it's something we've come to love and savor, mostly enjoyed as a great after dinner dessert.

So when I found out I won an EasiYo real yogurt maker (plus a real yogurt base and culture mix of my choosing) from and Cambert Philippines (the brand's exclusive distributor in the Philippines), I was more than ecstatic!

EasiYo yogurt maker and base mix

The people behind EasiYo believe that the fresher the yogurt, the better it is since, in order to enjoy it's full benefits, the cultures in this delicate treat should still be live when eaten.  But since these cultures only last for a few days, the best way to ensure that you get the healthiest, and tastiest, serving is to imbibe it immediately after it sets.

And with the EasiYo system (using their yogurt maker and real yogurt base and culture mix), preparing the freshest yogurt ever at home is as simple as 1 - 2 -3. 

1. Fill half of the yogurt jar with cool drinking water (I find that room temperature water works best).  Drop one packet of EasiYo's real yogurt base and culture mix (available at major supermarkets for Php260 a packet -- standard flavors only).

Add the mix...

Close the lid and shake contents till thoroughly mixed (you can also opt to add 2 to 4 tablespoons of sugar for a sweeter blend).  Top up jar with more water shake again .

2. Insert and push the red baffle down inside the yogurt maker.  Pour boiling water up to the top of the red baffle only.

3. Place yogurt jar inside the maker.  Close the white lid and set aside for a minimum of 10-12 hours or leave overnight (the latter works best) until set.

Almost done

Remove the yogurt jar and place it inside refrigerator to cool.  (Please visit the EasiYo website for more detailed instructions.)

EasiYo yogurt is best served chilled, with fruits.  In our case, we love sliced fresh bananas with our treat.

Fresh is truly the best.  J


The EasiYo yogurt maker and base and culture packets are available in major grocery stores nationwide (Philippines).


  1. Uy this is good ha. Is it easily available? I'm a yogurt person kasi. But sometimes, I hesitate stocking up because it might get spoiled if I don't consume it right away.

    At least this one, you can actually store.

    1. It's usually available at SM and Robinsons grocery stores. The big branches a. =)

  2. I've made a promise to myself to eat healthier, so this is definitely right up my alley. Is it dairy, though? I'm trying to steer clear of dairy products, and am looking for alternatives.

    1. It's dairy po. It's also a milk by-product din po kasi. =)

  4. I've seen this at the dollar store yata before but I didn't know it's available already in our market! Which means: yay!

    Does the yogurt taste good tho? :D

  7. Hi Tin. Thanks for taking time to visit my blog although it has been quite some time since I last updated it.

    My son loves yogurt but we haven't tried making our own. This looks interesting and worth a try.

  8. Congratulations Ate Jane for winning this.

    Ah...yogurt. Mt Beloved Wife doesn't like the taste of yogurt so I think that we will not be buying this.

  9. Thank you very much for always visiting my blog. Sobrang tagal ko nang hindi nakabisita sa iyong blog.

    1. Sus! It's ok. Ako nga din, am not able to blog hop like before. =(

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
