what this one does with his homemade Greek yogurt

By following these directions* (ma’habocath uses one of those little $1 tubs of plain & fat-free for the starter yogurt, it’s the perfect size for with a $2 gallon of skim milk!) this one has a gallon of homemade Greek yogurt which lasts him about a week eating 2-6 bowls of the following daily:

2017-03-05 14.24.13Each bowl is 3/4 cup homemade Greek yogurt, with an eyedropper of flavored liquid stevia (sometimes powder stevia and raw cacao), 1 tbsp chia, 2 tsp (2/3 tbsp) peanut butter, and 1/2 cup quick oatmeal.

  1. Each bowl starts with 3/4 cup Greek yogurt.
  2.  Add one eyedropper of flavored liquid stevia, different one each time. Sometimes I add powdered stevia and raw cacao, or cinnamon stevia and cinnamon powder.
  3. Add 1 tbsp chia and 2 tsp (2/3 tbsp) peanut butter, mix.
  4. Microwave for 2 minutes so it becomes about as liquid as milk and to give the chia a chance to do its absorbing thing.
  5. Add 1/2 cup quick oats, mix, wait a minute or two.
  6. Eat.

* In short:

  1. pre-heat crock pot on low, leave starter-yogurt on counter to warm up for step 6
  2. pour milk in saucepan/pot, high temp for ~10 min until 185 or just getting frothy/bubbly
  3. while waiting for milk to get hot, fill kitchen sink about half-way with cold water
  4. put saucepan/pot of milk in water, just deep enough so the water doesn’t get in
  5. wait ~10 min, stirring occasionally, until it’s about 110F
  6. measure yogurt starter into a bowl and pour about a cup of the warm milk over it and stir together, about 2 tbsp per 4 cups milk (so ~1/2 cup for a gallon of milk)
  7. pour milk and yogurt from bowl into the crockpot and stir it all together
  8. put lid and towel over crock pot, turn it off and unplug it, let sit about 8 hours
  9. put in fridge, wait to cool (without stirring/jostling/etc)
  10. eat

ma'habocath knows some, tells much. ma'habocath knows few things others do. This one is a live-alone, full-time burger-flipper with an odd mind and too much to say. ma'hab always tries the best ma'hab can to keep up: • Chores • Bodybuilding and other health-nuttery • Japanese language studies • Culinary experimentation (see “other health-nuttery”) • Exploration of newfound spiritual territory • Exploration of my Self • Figuring out how to socialize well enough, mostly face-to-face • Backlogs: books, heavy metal, anime • Blogging, chatting, texting, and talking to whomever will listen about all of the above
