Thereof, can you defrost yogurt in the microwave?
When microwaving frozen yogurt, defrost it for around 20 seconds at a time. Cold sour milk has an inactive active culture below 37°C or 98°F, but it reactivates when the texture is restored to its original state. Furthermore, it may be kept frozen for about three months and defrosted as needed.
