Greek Yogurt

March 23, 2011

Greek yogurt is getting more popular lately and retailers are charging a lot more for it. You’d be surprised how easy it is to make your own greek yogurt!

Greek yogurt is simply plain yogurt that is strained to remove some extra whey. You can very easily make it at home using your own homemade yogurt or a store-bought yogurt.

You need to set up a container for draining the whey, a really easy way is to set up a colander lined with cheese cloth over a pot or bowl.  If you have a fine mesh colander than you don’t have to line it.

Keep refrigerated. Allow to drain around 2 hours or more dethicker. If you strain overnight it gets to want is called yogurt cheese and is very thick.

      Thank you! I find inspirations from many magazines and books as well as other blogs. I usually tweak the recipes to be a bit healthier or just fit the ingredients I have on hand.
