It’s called Greek Yogurt, but all my homemade yogurt is thick because I add powdered milk to the milk to increase the concentration.
You can also take regular yogurt and strain the excess water out of it to make it thicker. Go all the way and it becomes yogurt cheese.

And we also leave it out longer for thicker yogurt as well.

when i get ready to start my ‘yogurt project’, i’m gonna use whole milk and nido powdered milk.
from all of the research i’ve read so far, using both liquid and powdered milk has rendered better results in the yogurts being more creamy and thicker.
will using a small container commercial greek yogurt (with active cultures), help ‘boost’ the yogurt?
i’ve read a lot of material about making yogurt, i haven’t seen anything about that…

That’s how we make ours that’s listed in the site, live culture un flavored yogurt.

The higher the fat content in the milk, the thicker the yogurt. So if you want a really thick yogurt, use half whole milk & half heavy cream. You can also add 1 tsp of plain gelatin per quart of milk (while the milk is heating on the stove).
