Introduction: Fruity Icey Probiotic Yogurt

About: A Software Engineer. I love learning new things. Hooked up with Instructables. It is the biggest find I ever made. :D Cooking and Crochet are my passion. I love to learn different techniques and cuisines.

Yogurt with probiotics! You can make it at home or dorm with just 3 ingredients. It is a simple and healthy technique to prepare yogurt. Get some of those good bacteria into your gut! Called probiotics, they help regulate digestion and champion the overall health of your digestive tract.

Probiotic capsule is used as a dietary supplement. Probiotic in supplements are generally pretty safe.

This is a simple fruit flavored probiotic yogurt. I will be showing how you can prepare probiotic yogurt right in your dorm.

Note: Probiotic yogurt is any yogurt that contains live, active bacterial cultures. Most natural or regular yogurt is probiotic. A normal serving of yogurt contains billions of bacteria, which many people believe to be beneficial to the body. In 2001, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations defined "probiotics" as "live microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host."

Probiotics may also be used to:

  • Help with other causes of diarrhea.
  • Help prevent infections in the digestive tract.
  • Help control immune response (inflammation), as in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

As with any dietary supplement, be aware that probiotic supplements are regulated as foods, not drugs. Tell your doctor about everything you are taking, including the specific bacteria in your probiotic supplement.

Step 1: Ingredients

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Setting time: 5-6 hours

Probiotic Capsule - 1

Milk - 1/2 liter

Papaya - ripe

Step 2: Papaya

Cut the papaya into small cubes. The more ripe they are, the more sweeter.

Step 3: Probiotic

Open up a capsule and drop the powder into the milk. Mix it well.

Use Probiotic capsule only if you are not an allergic person.

Step 4: Add

Add in the papaya cubes. You can use any fruit here. Apples, pear anything that comes into your mind. Mix it well.

Step 5: Mold.

Place it in a tray or a mold into which you would like to shape it. Leave it un-stirred for 5-6 hours or overnight. If you want it real solid place it in the refrigerator after once its set. May be the last 15 minutes before taking it out. Else you can definitely set the yogurt at room temperature. You will get a softer yogurt.

Step 6: Demold

I placed it in the fridge for the last 15 minutes to get it solid.

Enjoy your fruity icey treat. Have a simple 3 ingredient yogurt delight.!
