Yogurt Cheese

Submitted by: MIKITTA

Introduction

Graham Kerr came up with this one years ago and I learned how to do it from watching his low fat/low cal cooking show. It is really great and you can mix it with preserves for a yummy spread.

Ingredients

    1 Cup Plain, Non Fat Yogurt

Directions

Place yogurt in a strainer big enough to hold all of it with no overflow. Place strainer over a bowl so there is at least 2 inches of clearance between the bottom of the strainer and the bottom of the bowl. Set it all in the refirgerator and allow the liquid in the yogurt to strain off, leaving a very thick consistency of yogurt cheese behind. This is suitable to use for spreading on toast and bagles, and to make home made white sauce for Alfredo.

Number of Servings: 8

  • Recently discovered this. AMAZIG... but I think your nutritionals are incorrect, as 1/4 cup of the final product is the same as about 3/4 cup original yogurt, therefore the calories should be the same as 3/4 cup yogurt would be shouldn't they... or do you lose that many cal. in the whey? - 9/12/12

  • This is just wonderful!!! I like mine mixed with apple butter. I also used it as my cheese in mac and cheese and it worked out well (had to add milk to keep it from being too dry) I suppose this would be good for a lasagna cheese substitute. Thank you enough for sharing this very simple recipe. - 11/4/08

  • Make this all the time! Use for bagels and in cooking in place of sour cream, or cream cheese.
    Different Yogurts make different quality of "cheese".
    Add fruit or add chives - wonderful ! - 9/17/07

  • I've drained a lot of yogurt for various dishes like tzatziki and frozen yogurt but never thought of draining it to eat. Brilliant! Thanks for the great idea! There are so many flavors that you could add to this, to go with any food or mood! - 9/11/07
