Total Time 16 hours
Servings 8 servings


  • 1 pinch Date sugar or dehydrated shredded coconut or wheat germ (for garnish)
  • 1/2 cup Dehydrated fruits of choice
  • 1 tbsp Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Powdered milk
  • 4 cups Fat-free milk


  • Add powdered milk to liquid milk and blend within saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • After a boil is reached, let it cool to under 120 degrees F. (this step is very important).
  • In a separate small container: add some of the milk to one heaping tablespoon of yogurt, and stir.
  • Mix the small container back into the original large container.
  • Pour the milk/yogurt mixture into four small (approx. 1 cup) mason jars and screw on the lids.
  • Remove all racks from dehydrator except the bottom rack, and place the mason jars on the rack.
  • Set dehydrator to 115 degrees F. (Warm the dehydrator prior to using).
  • Dehydrate for approximately 6 hours, or until your product is a firm yogurt-like consistency.
  • Once the yogurt appears firm, refrigerate the jars overnight.
  • Gently fold in any dehydrated fruits you wish to add to your yogurt, and place back into the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
  • Garnish with date sugar (dehydrate fresh sliced dates for 15 hours, then grind to fine powder), dehydrated coconut, wheat germ, etc.
