Easiyo Yoghurt Base Maker $5.32 on Woolworths Online.
It's normally $15 in my local Woolies and $16.13 on Woolies Online.
All yoghurt sachets are on sale at the moment.
Just curious: those $2.99 (on special) sachets, are they for just 1 portion?
In that case it would be a very expensive way of making yoghurt. I might get the maker anyway and just use it for my usual yoghurt…
You don't have to use the whole packet each time.
You can use even less, I make mine with normal milk that I heat treat and then add about 1/4 tsp of easiyo and a couple of tablespoons or powdered milk to make it a little creamier. This works well for me and I think my sachet will last for about a year making double batches of yoghurt every week.
I use 20g of yogurt mix and 120g of Coles milk powder to make my batch. Leave it to set an hour or two longer than usual and it has the same taste and consistency as using the whole bag. Produces yogurt at a little over $1 per kilo. I usually make plain yogurt or add some green tea powder for something different.
That sounds spot on. 130g of home brand skim milk powder has the same protein and sugar content as one sachet (low fat greek yoghurt). All you need in addition is some cultures.
A sachet makes about 1 litre of yogurt…
A sachet makes exactly 1 litre. ;-) (Unless you don't add water to make 1 litre.)
To save even more money, just mix 5 tbsp yoghurt + 1 litre uht milk + 1/2 cup milk powder in the yoghurt maker.
Or you can buy the sachets and just use a few tbsp of the powder instead of the yoghurt in the recipe above.
You must use uht or boiled milk, otherwise the yoghurt won't set
is its the same price in store?
delivery ($11) is killing it for me
I can't see it in the catalogue, so not sure. But you can always order click & collect which should be free.
i havent checked if its the same price instore but u can always setup a new account to get free delivery (i think its something like first 3 orders have free delivery) or like team teri said select click & collect from your closest store
It's the SAME price instore. Picked up the 2nd last one last night for $5.32. Winning!
If you buy a few other things - FREE Delivery at Woolworths Online all Weekend ($30 min Spend

Pricing error? Sold out? No longer on their website.
For me that link still works. I also got one in-store for the above price.
as above I make my yogurt with 120g of milk powder.(not skim as it wont set). If you like it thicker use more - thinner less. i just use a tablespoon of "old" yogurt as a starter.. add sugar to taste… sometimes use banana or strawberry quick in the mix.
Can always add toppings like caramel on a plain yogurt.. Oh and lemon pancake syrup is very nice too.
Be careful with what you mix in as it wont set. make additives later if in doubt.
Oh special hint coffee works well and gives a nice cappuccino type flavour. I disolve mine first before adding.. dont add boiling hot coffee to mix or you could kill cultures… let it cool.
Bonus hint.. make a plain batch with no sugar - bag 1-2 tablespoons of finished product into freezer bags (use corner.. tie up and store in freezer.. you will always have some starter on hand.
Dont buy the satchets as you are paying a premium for what is essentially milk powder with sugar flavours and culture.
The majority of powder yoghurt is made on skim milk powder. We've also made it from a couple of spoons of plain yoghurt and skim powder. So that's not the reason it's not working for you.
Thanks OP. I still have a couple of Esiyo sachets sitting in my cupboard from some past Ozbargain freebie. Now I have the yoghurt maker!
Spoke too soon. Despite ordering online on 23/4 I have just received an 'out of stock' email notification. Pissed off, just rang and cancelled entire order.
I do use the sachets as recommended (too lazy to be mixing with powdered milk etc etc etc) but I always buy either Easiyo or Hansell's sachets only when on special…yummy flavours and much cheaper than buying the tubs of yoghurt still…call me a spendthrift if you care! haha :)
so a yoghurt maker at this price is AWESOME!
are they easy to make? like whats the process?
Yes, very easy. Just mix the powder with water in the provided container. Then put the container in the thermos type thing and fill it with boiling water. Then let it sit for half to one day.
Don't like correcting people, but if they did it that way they could end up scalded.
Half-fill the inner clear yoghurt container with water. Not hot or cold. Tap temp is fine if you like using your kidneys to filter industrial waste for corrupt governments and manufacturers (flouride).
Empty powder in as well.
The instructions say to fill with water in one go, but it makes a mess that way, so I half-fill with water, pour powder in, stir with a spoon, then top the water up to the line at the top.
Screw lid on and shake for 10-20 seconds.
Fill white/silver thermos thingy to the top of the red ring/stand with hot water. I always then shake it a bit to get any trapped air out.
THEN put the cannister with the yoghurt mix inside, and screw the thermos thingy lid on.
Remove 8-10 hours later.
Note: We've found strawberry needs less time. In fact, sometimes if we leave it for the full time, it's already off! It only happens with strawberry!?
The instructions actually say fill half with water, add sachet then add more water. Not fill the whole thing with water in one go.
Also available instore tonight (Wednesday) at my local Woolworth's, eastern suburbs of Melbourne - but only one left now.
Can't click & collect from Newmarket (Flemington)?
Are only some stores eligible for this?
Mirrabooka (Perth) had none late yesterday arvo.
Checked stirling central this morning they now have 1.
Thanks, been wanting to purchase one of these for awhile now.
how does the taste compare to normal yoghurt?
Depends on the flavour, but it IS normal yoghurt. If you mean does it have all the fruit bits added like store-purchased yoghurt has (that make store-purchased yoghurt not normal yoghurt)… ;-p … then no, most flavours don't have those bits.
Most yogurt sold in stores is so sweet it can only be classified as a dessert, rather than something healthy to eat. When sachet yogurt is compared to natural yogurts that don't have gelatine, thickeners, and mountains of sugar it compares very favourably. For me there is no quality loss when making the product from powder than fresh milk.
As with natural yogurts you'll have to give the mix a good stir after it's made but after that it's silky smooth.
Does the maker come with a yoghurt sachet in the box?
No, just yoghurt maker comes in the box, buy sachets as separate purchase.
Yeah, just came back from WW - no yoghurt packet.
Took hunting in 3 Woolworths to finally track one down. Seems a lot of the stores just stock the powder and not the maker.
Sold out (from online store with order for Kensington, VIC address).
After not being able to click-and-collect, I ordered for a delivery.
Placed a $30 groceries order (to get delivery) for 1 Easiyo. Decided I wanted another couple (for friends) and placed a second $30 order. Found the delivered groceries today with receipts which state that the Easiyo was sold out. So I essentially ordered $45 of groceries, delivered, which I didn't particularly want. Annoyed.
As expected, out of stock notification on tonight's delivery for this arrives. At least I thought to include a note in the order that I don't want the sachets if they can't supply the maker.
surprise surprise no yog maker :( Of course will not refund yog sachets. Now for the fight to get that refunded too!
Most WW I've seen have only have one or two of the makers in stock. So people will have to try different stores to find one. I saw two in a WW two days ago. But we already own two, but I was considering it because it was so cheap - just to get a spare clear cannister. Then I realised it didn't have the powder. In that case it's cheaper to get a used one from an Op Shop for $2-$4. Hey, a dollar is a dollar! ;-p…
They didn't have any stock at my local Woolies, just the sachets.
I ordered 2 from goldenglow.com.au for $10 each, which still isn't too bad of a price - good Mother's Day idea. Shipping is $4.95, unless you order over $30 in which case sign up for newsletter for free shipping coupon. The Easiyo sachets are still cheaper at Woolies.
This site does seem to stock most if not the whole range of sachets. I feel like placing a mass order.
Thanks. I ended up doing this. No yoghurt makers or sachets to be found in my area, the cbd or online.
If it helps anyone, my local store (Newington NSW) re-stocked the maker and had four left last night. I'd tried on Thursday night and there were none, so maybe check your stores again to see if they've re-stocked too?
Just checked at my local- $20.32
I don't like the silver colour the current ones are. Just go into an op shop everytime you past. You'll find one eventually for $2-$4. Just make sure all the bits are there.
You don't need instructions. They're on the mix packets.
