If you’re new to EasiYo – our starter pack is the option for you. It includes a new and improved red yoghurt maker that features some great updated features, plus one each of the sachets in the above collection.
We chatted with Caroline from EasiYo to find out more about the redesign; plus we have some fantastic recipes, read on for more…

Our iconic yogurt maker redesigned for the future

Following extensive research, people confirmed what we already knew: that our current yogurt maker was in need of refreshment. We responded with some changes…

It now has an easy grip handle on the engineered lid to make it easier to twist and open, and the elegant jar means you can take it straight from fridge to table, plus the shape makes it easier to spoon the last of the yogurt out. We’ve added non-slip feet for added stability, and with its more compact size, it has a more stylish look and feel, making it a great addition to any kitchen! The new size and quality wool insulation keeps the yogurt warm and snug allowing the cultures to do their stuff, plus the smooth surfaces make for easy cleaning.

New features
EasiYo make enjoying real yogurt, really easy, with the best ingredients and no artificial colours or flavours and no stabilisers. With a fantastic homemade thickness, EasiYo yogurt is not only delicious but vegetarian and gluten free. Simply mix a yogurt sachet with water, insert into the maker filled with boiling water, and wake up to 1kg of the freshest, tastiest yogurt – made by you!

    I’m a recent convert to Easiyo. It’s so fresh and the flavours are just stunning. Very economical and so good for you. Easy to make. Looking forward to a new flavour in the TSV and a new maker too! Great.

    I have only recently started using Easiyo and had a couple of disasters, one didn’t set and the other was a bit gloopy not sure what went wrong. I’m with everyone else and would love to see a cook book as I’m not too imaginative in the kitchen.
