From the moment I got my Instant Pot, I’ve been a fan. So when I learned to to yogurt, it made me love it even more. Being able to make high quality greek yogurt for 1/10th of the price of store bought is amazing. You must try it!! Rapsberry is my favorite!

Instant Pot Greek Yogurt


  • 1/2 gallon of milk
  • 2-4 tablespoons of high quality cows milk plain greek yogurt, room temp


  • Instant Pot
  • Thermometer
  • Flour sack towel
  • Colander
  • Bowl
  • Glass Jars with lids

Optional add ins

  • Honey
  • Jelly/Jam
  • Fresh Fruit


  1. Sterilize your instant pot. Add 1-2 cups of water to your Instant Pot. Turn the steam release handle to sealed, hit the steam button and set the time for 1 minute. Your Instant Pot will take a few minutes to come to pressure and then will steam the water for one minute.
  2. Dry out instant pot well and add your milk. Seal lid
  3. Click the yogurt button several times or until the display reads “boil”. Alternately, click the yogurt button and then hit “adjust” until the display reads “boil”
  4. It will take 30-45 minutes for the milk to boil. When it’s done, your display will read “yogt”.
  5. Remove lid and inner pot from instant pot and set on a trivet. Monitor the temperature of the milk until it hits 110-115 (this could take 1-2 hours).
  6. Once to temp, whisk in your room temp yogurt starter.
  7. Replace lid and push the “yogurt” button (or yogurt,than adjust) to set the pot to LESS and 08:00 hours. More time adds more good bacteria and decreases the lactose content, so you can turn back on your instant pot for 24 hours total if you desire.
  8. After 8 hours, the pot will read “yogt” and you are ready to check your consistency and flavor. 
  9. The yogurt is ready to eat now, but we are making greek yogurt, so put a colander inside of a bowl and cover with flour sack towel. 
  10. Pour the yogurt into towel and fold towel over the top. Allow the to drain in the refrigerator for 3-6 hours or until it’s reached optimum consistency.
  11. Place jam, honey, or fresh fruit in the bottom of 8oz clean jars. Scoop yogurt onto the top. Seal and refrigerate.
