Homemade Yogurt Parfait

Homemade Yogurt Parfait
Make yogurt in your Smart Hub and then layer it into a decadent parfait!
  1. Cow milk
  2. Starter culture (can be unflavored, store-bought yogurt)
  3. Granola
  4. Honey
  5. Fruit
  6. Herbs or spices if desired
For the yogurt
  1. Fill Smart Top with water and set Smart Hub to 185F
  2. Fill jar with milk, add jar to Smart Top
  3. Wait 35 minutes
  4. Remove jar of milk from Smart Top and adjust Smart Hub to 110F
  5. Wait until the milk in the jar it cools to ~115F and then add starter culture or yogurt. If you're using a packet of yogurt starter, follow the directions on the container. If using yogurt, use around 5% of total milk volume. Stir well to incorporate starter.
  6. If desired, add herbs or spices to the milk. Lavender and mint are two popular choices.
  7. Once the Smart Hub temperature has fallen to 110F, place the jar of milk and starter into the Smart Top
  8. Wait until the yogurt has fermented to the desired consistency and flavor, probably around 5 hours.
  9. Remove yogurt from the Smart Top.
  10. If a thicker consistency is desired, drain whey from the yogurt by placing it in a colander lined with cheesecloth. Fully draining the whey can take up to 4 hours, so do this step in the fridge so that fermentation does not continue.
For the parfait
  1. There is no real wrong way to make a parfait. My favorite starts with a layer of honey, followed by a layer of yogurt, followed by a layer of granola, followed by yogurt, followed by fruit, followed by yogurt, and then a little drizzle of honey on top.
