Over the weekend, I put on my big girl panties.

Sometimes a girl just needs to open the dresser drawer, pull out a pair of unmentionables, put one foot in, then the other, and pull ’em up.

I have been contemplating the idea of making yogurt at home. But then I start thinking about the process: milk, saucepans, using a giant thermometer to accurately gauge the temperature, and waiting. Oh, the waiting (have I mentioned that I have the attention span of a three year-old?). After about 5 minutes, my brain hurts and I decide to make nachos instead.

But it wasn’t until I received this beautiful, stunning book, 75 Probiotic Drinks, written by Julia Mueller, author of The Roasted Root, did I finally say, “Ohhhhhh, I can do that.” For those of you who haven’t met Julia, click over to The Roasted Root right NOW! Julia has gorgeous photos and drool-worthy recipes. Plus, she’s a gem!


So, when she asked me to make a recipe out of her new cookbook and review it, I was like, “Heck yes!” This book is full of how-to make probiotic drinks – kombuchi, kefir, ginger beer, etc. But you could imagine my surprise when she shows you how to make your own yogurt, I flipped out. The best part, she makes the whole yogurt making process easy peasy.

If this #yogurtmakingblackthumb girl can do it, so can you! All you do is (almost) boil the milk, let it chillax, remove some of the skin off the top, pour it into a jar, and wait! I decided to make the Mojito version and let me tell you, it feels like a summer oasis in my house right now!
