Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese
Vote for this contest contender!
I recently learned how to make cream cheese from Greek yogurt and just Greek yogurt! I just can't get enough. It's not only incredibly creamy, it's packed full of protein and is a much healthier option than traditional cream cheeses out there. Adding a pinch of salt in the beginning of this method is optional, but definitely not necessary. Enjoy!
- Greek yogurt
- cheesecloth or coffee filter
- Place the cheesecloth or coffee filter on the strainer, then spoon in the yogurt.
- If you're using a sturdy cheesecloth, squeeze out as much liquid as you can. If you're using a coffee filter, press down on the yogurt with the back of a spoon. Cover and place in refrigerator for at least 10 hours. You can place something heavy over it to help assist the drainage if you're in a hurry!
- Remove from fridge and enjoy your cream cheese. I love to use this in my recipes that call for cream cheese.
