Instant Pot Almond Milk Yogurt

Making Yogurt with almond milk is possible and it’s an amazing way to replace the dairy product. Since Plant-base yogurt can be quite expensive at the grocery store, I searched for a cheaper alternative, and here it is :]

Here you can make your own yogurt ,  using this easy and quick recipe.  To be honest it’s much better than the one you can purchase!

This pressure cooker almond milk yogurt recipe is great for lactose intolerance kids.

It can be added to any granola for a great and healthy breakfast, but usually I just eat it natural while waiting my Instant Pot Scrambled Eggs to be ready.

  1. Does this turn out thick? I saw there were 50 comments and ONLY 3 stars for the recipe so I’m wondering what others thought. I’m making this tonight. And just dont want a flop. Lol

      1. So, if you have made this yogurt previously, I assume you use some of the prior yogurt for the “prepared yogurt” ingredient. However, if this is your first batch, what do you use for the “prepared yogurt”? Can you use a bit of store bought yogurt?
        Have you tested this recipe with multiple brands and types of almond milk? I usually purchase Almond Dream Unsweetened Almond Milk.

          1. Hi Jacqui, I know this is a late comment, but Kite Hill plain almond milk yogurt has no sweeteners.

  2. Bummer, I followed the directions and my ‘yogurt’ turned out as sour milk (not thick at all) Maybe this just doesn’t work with almond milk…?

    1. If your instant pot doesn’t have a yogurt button, you can still prepare yogurt in it. Just use the manufacturer’s instructions for yogurt making.

  3. What is the consistency like? I plan to use sweetened vanilla flavored almond milk. Will this work? My daughter is used to yoplait flavored regular yogurt so I am looking for a similar consistency.

  4. After 8 hours in the instant pot it is just straight liquid. Is that what it’s supposed to be for the first time making it. I used silk almond vanilla unsweetened and kite hill yogurt as the starter and it’s only liquid hasn’t been in refrigerator yet.

    1. Mine was the same way. I was so disappointed. I noticed though that my temp wasn’t as high as it was supposed to be. I’m trying it again. This time after the first hour (boil) if it’s not 180 I’ll use the sauté feature to raise it to 180. I’m also going to use a thickening agent. I hope I have better luck this time. I’ll let you know.

    2. Hi Naomi,

      The first time it’s always like this, but keep 1/2 cup of your preparation to use for next preparation and it will get creamier

  5. first time i made with almond milk came out exactly like it started pure liquid. I make whole milk yogurt every week and comes out great . Maybe cant use almond milk ??? does the almond milk need to be sweetened , unsweetened ?? flavored ? so many different one to choose from I used the 30 calorie unsweetened didnt work 🙁

  6. I have tried this twice and both times it comes out liquid just like it went in?? When I use regular milk my yogurt comes out fine.

  7. Thanks for the recipe. Is longer better? For example, I saw a canned coconut milk recipe that said 8 hrs minimum, but best is 24-36 hrs. Also, can flavors be added to this recipe?

  8. I’ve been using my Instant Pot to make yogurt for a couple of years. I tried soy, almond, coconut & even MADE almond milk, &none of them worked…..until I found Westsoy organic unsweetened soy milk in an aseptic carton (shelf stable). Works every time. My pot has a yogurt button & I set it for 10 hrs. 4 TBSP of any existing yogurt works as starter, even store bought.
