Coffee Yoghurt WIN!

WOOHOO!  A successful batch of coffee yoghurt!  I'm still going to fiddle with this a little, but I'll give you the base recipe now :).  At around 130cals for a 200g tub (pictured), it's an awesome little treat.  It's got quite a strong "tang" to it - if you prefer sweet yoghurt, you may like to add some more sugar, but don't forget to add the calories.

I make mine using the EasiYo yoghurt maker.

1.5 cups of skim milk powder
2tblsp starter culture (any live yoghurt - I used Jalna Low Fat Creamy Vanilla)
200ml brewed espresso
800ml water
20g light sweetened condensed milk
3tblsp caster sugar

Combine the 200ml of espresso, 300ml of water, milk powder, condensed milk, starter culture and sugar.  Mix or shake until well combined.

Top up with remaining 500ml of milk (total mixture volume should now be around 1 litre).  Insert into hot water bath in EasiYo as normal and let rest for at least 12 hours.  If you like a really creamy yoghurt, around 18 hours is best.  Refrigerate for 4-6 hours before serving.
