EasiYo Yogurt Maker Review Plus Giveaway





As a big family of yogurt lovers we were all really excited to get the chance to try and review the EasiYo yogurt maker. I had seen these about and always been really curious to how they were used and what the home made yummy yogurt would be like. 

EasyYo is all about having a nice easy way to be able to make your own delicious yogurt while at the same time knowing that its full of goodness with no artificial colours or flavours and no stabilisers. The yogurts are also gluten free. 
There are also 30 different flavours to try. Some flavours include strawberry, banana and forest fruits. We were sent blueberry and greek yogurt with honey to try.



As soon as I got the chance I got it out ready to give it a go. The first thing I loved about the EasyYo machine is that it really doesn't take up much room. I only have a small kitchen and so the fact it will easily go into one of my cupboards or sit nicely in a corner on the kitchen counter was a real plus for me. It also doesn't come with a million different pieces and simply has a tub which fits inside the maker for easy storage. The design is really nice and simplistic and so if you were to put it on display, It doesn't look terrible.




I decided to try and make the blueberry yogurt first. Reading the instructions it did seem very simple to do and in fact it really was. You can actually use the sentence as simple as 1, 2, 3 because it only has 3 simple main steps to preparing the yogurt.

1. You get your tub, half fill it with room temperature water, pour in your mixture from the pack and then give it a good shake. Then fill the water to the fill line and give it another good shake. Of corse making sure that the lid is on.

2. Theres a plastic insert in the maker, you make sure that is pushed down and then you add boiling water to the top of the plastic insert and then place in your tub. The boiling water should rise up the sides of part of your tub.

3. Place on the lid to the maker and then leave the tub in there for 8 to 12 hours (or overnight). Take it out after that time and refrigerate to set.






I was really happy at how easy it was to do and it didn't make any mess and also the maker didn't need any washing just drying out. This is a huge plus as I have had dessert makers in the past which are a nightmare to clean.
I also loved the fact that the time to be left in the tub could be overnight as it meant I could do it at some point in the evening and not have to worry about timings. Just get up and get it out.

After leaving it to refrigerate for most of the day, I was ready for us all to try some. We had finished our dinner and so it was time for dessert. Lily isn't a big dessert fan but one of the things she likes is yogurt. Knowing how good this yogurt was for her I was really happy to let her try some. Unfortunately Lily didn't seem to like this yogurt. The flavour of the blueberry was quite sour and I'm thinking it may have been this. Its a good job that there are more flavours and i'm definetly going to try her with more. But that said, me and my partner really enjoyed the yogurt. Yes it was a little sour/tart from the blueberries but I quite liked that and it also had a really creamy sweet taste at the same time. Delicious. The only thing I found with this first batch I made was it did have a few lumps and bits of graininess to it from the powder where it hadn't mixed. Im putting this down to maybe not shaking it enough and will shake more next time.

After we had all had a helping I put it back in the fridge. The yogurt can be kept in the fridge for 2 weeks which I think is brilliant. I don't think it would take me 2 weeks to eat the yogurt but its great to know that I don't have to eat it within 2 days like most shop bought yogurts. The amount of times I have thrown away yogurt because of not getting it all eaten in time is shocking. The tub holds kg of yogurt and I think that is a really decent amount.


The second flavour we tried was the honey and natural yogurt. I also tried this flavour with Lily and she wouldn't eat it. But will have to keep trying as maybe she was just having a fussy day. I did enjoy this flavour but preferred the blue berry one.




The EasiYo maker is £17.99 and the yogurt sachets are priced at £2 which I think is great when you know that your getting such good quality yogurt that lasts.

I did wonder to myself before using it if this is something I would end up using or if I would resort back to shop bought with picking it up of a shelf being a lot easier than home making it. But I think I definetly would prefer to use my maker over the shop bought and the main reason for this would be the naturalness and the long life it has. Im really looking forward to trying some new flavours.
