Tips and advice for saving money on yogurt as posted by the ThriftyFun community.
Buy On Sale
We buy Yoplait when it goes on sale 3 for 99 cents at the local grocery store. My husband takes those to work with is lunch. For my 5 year old and I, we buy the bigger Yoplait containers on sale and put them in our own 4 oz Gladware containers. 4 ounces is less than the single servings, so it stretches it that way too and usually 4 ounces is plenty for us.
Make Your Own Yogurt
It's very easy to make your own yogurt. You can buy a yogurt maker from Amazon for maybe $10. Then all you need is a candy thermometer to measure the temperature of the milk.
This is how I make my own yogurt: I pour some milk on top of the left over organic yogurt whose bacteria were alive. I close the container with a lid, ensuring there's air circulation under the lid. I leave it on the kitchen counter at (warm) room temperature. You can always keep some of the culture in a closed container on the shelves of your fridge's door. I use a ceramic pot with a lid to make my yogurt, since for some obscure reason, I've found out that it yields the best tasting yogurt.
