Can Your Cuisinart Pressure Cooker Make Yogurt

The Cuisinart Pressure Cooker makes it easy to make yogurt at home. Yogurt made in your Pressure Cooker will be thicker than store-bought versions because you can use whole milk or even cream! And, you won’t find any additives or preservatives in your homemade yogurt!

Yes, you can make yogurt in a Cuisinart pressure cooker. Yogurt is a combination of milk and culture. When you cook yogurt at high temperature, the milk proteins coagulate and trap the active cultures.

A pressure cooker is a perfect tool for preparing homemade yogurt. It safely brings milk to a boil without scalding and does not require you to monitor it while it’s heated. It provides constant pressure, ensuring that milk has been incubated for a long enough period of time. You can make a high-quality yogurt in your pressure cooker every time.

The result is similar to that made by a yogurt maker – with the convenience of a pressure cooker – with no special yogurt-making equipment

Once you know how (and we will show you below how easy it is to do) making yogurt in your Cuisinart pressure cooker is not only easy but fun as well…


How To Make Yogurt In Your Pressure Cooker

Let’s face it, yogurt is expensive. Combine the cost with the fact that we can make far less expensive versions in pressure cookers and then add in all the healthy benefits of homemade yogurt and you’ll see why this pressure cooker yogurt project is one we should all take on.

It feels like a big project…and it is…but I’m happy to report that it is also very easy and my Cuisinart seemed to do most of the work! Once you see how easy it is and how much cheaper homemade yogurt can be, you will never buy store-bought yogurt again.

Pressure cooker yogurt is so easy to make at home. All you have to do is heat up milk, drop in a thermos of live-culture yogurt starter, seal the heat, and let time do its job. You can cool it quickly by taking it out of the pot right away or letting it sit on the counter with the lid cracked open for several hours.

Here is a video showing how easy it is to make yogurt in a pressure cooker. They are not using Cuisinart but the same principles apply…


What Kind Of Milk To Use For Cuisinart Pressure Cooker Yogurt

You can use any milk in your Cuisinart because you are not using a pressure cooker with a yogurt button. The reason people are concerned with certain types of milk is the bacteria factor. But because with the Cuisinart you have no choice but to boil the milk bacteria is not a concern. So use any milk you like.

When making yogurt in a pressure cooker, you can use any type of milk you want. I would recommend using whole milk because the thicker the yogurt is the better it tends to be.

There are actually very few differences in milk. The fat content will play a role in the thickness of your yogurt, and sweetness will add to it as well, but either way, your yogurt will be just fine and creamy and tangy and scrumptious and filling and….oh, just trust me. Use any kind of milk you like.

Experimenting with different kinds of milk is very easy! -Soy milk is similar in consistency to milk, make sure it smells fresh. -If using non-dairy milk (almond, soy, etc.), you will need the yogurt starter culture (either powdered or liquid).

Whole milk will give you the most creamy consistency, but low-fat milk is healthier. The higher the fat content, the better your yogurt will taste!


In summary, when you think about it, yogurt is a pretty cool food. You can make it from scratch using just a few simple ingredients, and you can eat it for breakfast, snack time, or dessert! But have you ever tried making yogurt in a pressure cooker?

It’s easier than you might imagine. In just a few minutes, your cooker will be bubbling away, making fresh warm yogurt that tastes just like the kind from the store!

Pressure Cooker Yogurt is a great way to have fresh yogurt for breakfast every day. It is very thick and creamy with a flavor that tastes great. It makes an excellent replacement to creme fraiche and a good partner to fruit and granola, muesli, or maple syrup.

Add thick and creamy plain yogurt to your next batch of recipes for a unique twist. From sweet to savory, the versatility allows you to add value and flavor to any meal. For a healthier alternative you can substitute regular milk for low-fat or non-fat milk.

Yogurt made in a Cuisinart pressure cooker is thick, creamy, and full of rich vanilla flavor. You’ve probably seen cookbook images of yogurt coming out smoothly like gelatin; making yogurt in the pressure cooker is much the same.
