InstantPot Vegan Greek Yogurt

vegan greek yogurt
If you love thick, rich, creamy Greek yogurt but have yet to find a REALLY good dairy-free alternative, look no further. This method is the easiest (and most budget-friendly) way to enjoy vegan yogurt.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 hours
Total Time 15 hours 3 minutes
Course Breakfast
Cuisine alternative dairy
Servings 8 servings


  • 2 quarts soymilk plain unsweetened (see notes)
  • 2 packets non-dairy yogurt starter


  • Pour cartons of soymilk into InstantPot.
  • Whisk in yogurt starter.
  • Press YOGURT setting.
  • Use "+" button to set yogurt for 15 hours. Set sealing valve to “Release”.
  • When finished, gently pour yogurt into a cheesecloth-lined colander, placed on top of an 8-cup measuring cup.
  • Strain 1-2 hours or until 3-4 cups of whey have strained into the measuring cup.
  • Reserve whey for other uses (see notes).
  • Blend yogurt curds with an immersion blender until smooth. Recipe yields a scant quart of yogurt.


  • Only purchase soy milk made with 2 ingredients: soybeans & water. EdenSoy & WestSoy are two good brands. If you'd rather have yogurt made with a milk other than soy (i.e. coconut, etc.), simply blend in 1/8 tsp amounts of xanthan gum until the finished yogurt has reached desired consistency.
    • The liquid leftover from straining soy yogurt can be used to add probiotics to your smoothies in addition to butter and cheese-making. Try this easy Vegan Goat Cheese recipe with yours!
