Why This Recipe Works

This yummy and delicious vanilla-flavored almond milk yogurt comes out very smooth and creamier in texture just in only 16 minutes! And the ingredients it contains are very simple and budget-friendly.

This recipe requires very basic steps to follow and turns out everyone's favorite. I prefer it over regular yogurt because of the benefits that come with fermented food, particularly its low-fat level and high in nutrients.

It goes perfectly well in your breakfast, shakes, and smoothies! For some ideas check out these BlendJet Recipes.

Recipe Ingredients

This recipe asks for 2 ingredients only easily available at any store or online. They are :

Almond Milk - I have used the store-bought almond milk containing a good amount of thickeners and gums so that your yogurt gets the desired thickness. I didn't go for cashew milk because it gets too heavy for breakfast or anything. However, you can read my cashew chicken recipe if you like cashew. You can use homemade almond milk.

Almond Yogurt - Use any store-bought plain almond yogurt recipe. You can also use flavored yogurt like the one vanilla almond yogurt to give your recipe a warm and wanting vanilla taste!

How to Make

Here is a step-by-step guide to this recipe for your ease.

Gather all the necessary ingredients first.

Take an Instant Pot and pour 1 and ½ cups of almond milk into it.

Cover the lid and select the 'yogurt' function. Adjust it to boil mode. Set the timer for 8 minutes.

After 8 minutes of boiling, give it a natural steam vent.

Then add 3 tablespoons of almond yogurt to it.

Lock the lid and select the 'yogurt' function again. Set the time for 8 minutes.

Once done, wait for a natural pressure release.

Once the pressure release ends, open the lid.

The smooth and creamy almond milk yogurt is ready. Refrigerate it until it gets chilled then serve it with some sprinkled chopped almonds and enjoy!

How to Serve

Almond Milk Yogurt can simply be served with some chopped roasted or boiled peanuts or granola in breakfast for a healthier combo. Or you can have some french toast with some maple syrup and almond milk yogurt drizzled over it!

It also gives a super creamier and good thick texture to your smoothies or shakes when whipped into them!

My family loves having it as it is with some maple syrup because why not? A spoon full of almond yogurt makes you love it even more!


I don't like Vanilla much. Can I make it in a different flavor?

Yes, why not! Even it is so popular for its variety of flavors. You can make it in berry flavor by adding some tablespoons of mixed berries, in chocolate by adding in some cocoa powder,  cocoa powder substitutes, or a few teaspoons of Nutella. You can make a different chocolate mousse too.

For How Long Can I Store It?

It can easily be refrigerated in an airtight container for 4-5 days. For longer shelf life, you can freeze it heavy-duty freezer bag or in an airtight container for 1-2 months or beyond. Keeping it at room temperature for more than 2 hours will make it sour and rot.

Can I make a classic yogurt?

Sure! Check out this Instant Pot Yogurt recipe for full instructions and a video guide.

How to double the recipe?

Use 3 cups of milk and 6 tablespoon of yogurt.

Cooking time stays the same (yogurt function for 8 minutes and natural release and then another 8 minutes and natural release).

  • The first time you make it, the yogurt may result in being less dense. Keep ½ cup of your preparation aside and use it in your next batch of yogurt. That way, the second batch would be denser.
  • If you want to use it in any curry or something then avoid using vanilla almond yogurt. Switch to plain almond yogurt.

    When making regular yogurt, milk must be cooled so as not to kill live cultures. Does this almond yogurt recipe contain any yogurt cultures?

  2. Corrie, what temperature does the milk need to be before adding the yogurt starter. I’m wondering if I add it to soon the hot milk will destroy the culture. Also, can you let me know approximately how long should I wait for a natural release? Or how should I know when the natural release has occurred? It’s been going about 4 hours now

  3. My pot didn't pressure lock on the first 8 minute cycle even when it was on boil. That being said I didn't really have a natural release period. Did I do something wrong? How long should I have waited for it to cool down between the yogurt cycles?

    1. When using the Instant Pot on the yogurt mode the Instant Pot doesn’t pressure lock. You don’t even need the rubber seal in your lid and if you have a glass lid that fits your Instant Pot you can even use that.
