Can I Make Soy Yogurt At Home? Good Questions

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: Is there a way to make soy yogurt at home? I don’t eat dairy and I love soy yogurt. But it’s fairly pricey in my area of the country, and I want to cut my food budget.

Has anyone successfully made it themselves?

Editor: Squirrely, it seems that yes, you can make soy yogurt at home, but some people say that you do need to either buy a commercial yogurt starter, or use a bit of regular dairy yogurt. Using storebought soy yogurt as a starter sometimes doesn’t work. The most complete and helpful instructions we found on all this we found here:
