How to Make a Sweet Yogurt Cheese

Saturday, December 13th, 2008

A Sweet Yogurt Cheese is delightfully delicious served over the top of fresh fruit, pies, or a warm fruit crisp instead of calorie-ladened whipped cream. This easy to make recipe yields about 1 cup of Yogurt Cheese.

–2 c 1% plain yogurt (recipe to make your own homemade yogurt, other cheeses, etc in the betweenclosefriends.com blog)

–icing sugar to taste

–pinch of cinnamon, if desired (Using ¼-½ tsp of cinnamon in place of the icing sugar will supply the required sweetness when this Sweet Yogurt Cheese is served over warm apple desserts, and save even more calories!)

  1. Add the homemade or store-bought yogurt to a cheesecloth-lined sieve supported over a glass bowl. Place the bowl, sieve and yogurt strainer or sieve over a bowl and place in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. In the morning, discard the whey to the bowl. The thickened yogurt (yogurt cheese) will be reduced in volume by half. Place the thickened yogurt cheese in a bowl. Add icing sugar to taste and a pinch of cinnamon if desired.
  3. Serve with warm fruit crisp.
