I LOVE yogurt, but want to cut it out of my diet (I am lactose intolerant), is there a way to make soy yogurt?<br><br><br><br>

probably <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:"><br><br>
but you can buy soy yoghurt in a lot of places. The brand available here (UK) is Alpro. Not sure where you live but it's most likely available. Try health food shops if a supermarket doesn't have it.<br><br><br><br>
edit: I checked your location. Perhaps you should try asking in your state's thread to see what kinds you might find near you?

Thanks, but I really want to make it myself. It would have less preservatives and such and more healthy. If I can't make soy, I will just keep making regular.

okay. I was confused because you didn't mention in your first post that you were making the dairy yoghurt you were currently eating. I thought you only wanted to make soy yoghurt because you didn't know you could buy it (in my lazy world that's the only reason someone would want to make something! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">!) obviously I underestimated you!<br><br>
I would try searching the forums if you haven't already. I have a feeling that this has been discussed before.<br><br><a href="http://www.vegsoc.org.au/forum_messages.asp?Thread_ID=4430&Topic_ID=1" target="_blank">here's a thread on another site about this</a>

You can make it the same way with soy milk (if you buy unsweetened soy milk then you will need to add a TB or 2 of sugar or maple syrup so the cultures have something to feed off) For your first batch use dairy yogurt as your starter then keep warm as you always do. When that batch is made, then save back 1/4 cup to be your next starter. I found that soy yogurt was runnier than my homemade dairy yogurt so you may need to drain it in a tea towel off the tap if you like it thicker.

When I used to make yogart from milk, I would buy packaged yogart culture from the health food store. I would think you could just add that to soy milk.
