Amazing and Easy Instant Pot Yogurt Recipe

Prep Time 7 hours 27 minutes
Cook Time 7 hours 27 minutes


  • Glass jars that fit in Instant Pot
  • Milk
  • Yogurt with live cultures


  1. Fill clean jars with milk leaving about 1 inch of space at the top. Place trivet in Instant Pot and add 1 cup water to the bottom. Place jars of milk on the trivet.
  2. Place and lock the Instant Pot lid. Use steam function setting time for 1 minute. Allow natural pressure release and then remove the lid.
  3. Allow milk to cool to between 115 and 95 degrees. I find removing them from pot allows them to cool faster. If any “skin” forms on top if the milk remove it now.
  4. Add 1 Teaspoon of live culture yogurt per every cup of milk. Mix gently until fully dissolved and then place jars back in the pot on the trivet.
  5. Place and lock the lid and set Instant Pot to the yogurt setting. The 8 hour setting works well for small batches the 10 hour one for larger batches.
  6. Once finished the Instant Pot will readout will show “YOGT”. Cover and place in refrigerator.
