With an inexpensive yoghurt maker bought online, making your own yoghurt couldn’t be easier. Take my advice and get one. You won’t be disappointed – I’m hooked! Here I’ve used buffalo milk, which is beautifully rich and makes a nice thick yoghurt, but you can use any milk for this lovely, simple dessert.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

For the yoghurt

Quantity Ingredient
1 litre buffalo milk
2 chamomile tea bags
50g natural yoghurt
1 tablespoon clear honey

For the strawberry compôte

Quantity Ingredient
40g caster sugar
40ml water
1 chamomile tea bag
200g strawberries, quartered

Method

  1. Bring the milk to the boil in a medium saucepan, then add the chamomile tea bags and swirl around. Leave to infuse for about 30 minutes, or until the temperature of the milk drops just below 50°C.
  2. Remove the tea bags, squeezing well to give as much flavour to the milk as possible. Whisk in the natural yoghurt, then transfer to a yoghurt maker. Following the manufacturer’s instructions, turn the machine on and leave for 6–8 hours.
  3. When the yoghurt has formed, remove from the machine, tip into a sieve set over a bowl and chill in the fridge for 1 hour to firm up, or overnight if you want a texture like thick Greek yoghurt.
  4. Discard the liquid in the bowl, then place the yoghurt from the sieve in a food processor or blender. Add the honey and blitz until smooth. Spoon into serving glasses, then cover and chill until needed.
  5. While the yoghurt chills, make the strawberry compôte. Combine the sugar, water and chamomile tea bag in a small saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from the heat, add the strawberries and leave to infuse for 30 minutes.
  6. Spoon the strawberry compôte over the top of the yoghurt to serve.
