MANILA, Philippines - What if I tell you that there is now a very easy way to have yourself some homemade yogurt that will stay great-tasting and nutritious for up to two weeks in your fridge? Yes, yes, yo — EasiYo makes this possible! It is an absolutely easy system that allows you to deliciously make fresh batches of yogurt, one liter at a time.

Launched in New Zealand back in 1992, EasiYo is now being enjoyed by families in more than 20 countries around the world. More importantly, EasiYo products adhere to the strict standards of New Zealand’s Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. EasiYo also assures everyone that its products are all melamine-free. That only means EasiYo products are not just healthy, they’re also very safe.

Now to get started, just grab an EasiYo starter pack which has everything you need to make your first batch of yogurt: one yogurt maker, one yogurt jar, one sachet of natural yogurt powder, one sachet of fruit topping and yes, even a yogurt cookbook! To make yogurt, just half fill the yogurt jar with cold water, then empty one yogurt sachet into it and mix. Continue to fill the jar up with more cold water and seal tight before shaking to make sure all of the yogurt powder is dissolved. Then, put the jar inside the yogurt maker, pushing the red baffle inside as far down as possible. Afterwards, fill the yogurt maker with boiling water just up to the top of the red baffle and seal it tight. Now, leave it for just 10-12 hours or until set, then pull out the yogurt jar. Chill the jar in your fridge and enjoy! If you’d like a milder yogurt though, you can already pull out the jar as soon as the yogurt sets, which is about six hours.

EasiYo yogurt comes in different flavors: natural, strawberry, vanilla, banana, lemon, Greek, Greek & honey, strawberries & cream, blueberries & cream as well as mango. Enjoy them it on its own or top it with sliced fruits, syrup, or cereal.

What’s more, the EasiYo plain natural yogurt can be used as a healthier alternative to mayonnaise and cream in your favorite dishes.

Everyone knows that yogurt is very good for you because probiotics help strengthen your immune system. However, recent findings suggest that yogurt may be more beneficial to our health than we originally thought. A number of studies have shown a positive link between daily consumption of yogurt and a lowered risk of breast cancer, bladder cancer, colorectal cancer, vaginal infections, high blood pressure, and osteoporosis.

The simple truth is this: yogurt is one of the best super foods that you and your kids can enjoy together. And the best part with EasiYo is your yogurt is always fresh!

EasiYo yogurt maker and yogurt sachets are available at the following outlets: SM Hypermarket, Rustan’s Supermarket, S&R (including Cebu outlet), Landmark Supermarket, Shopwise, Robinsons Supermarkets (selected branches), South Supermarket, Unimart, Cash & Carry, and Makati Supermarket Alabang.
