Homemade "Greek" Yogurt

catzen | Aug 22, 2008 06:58 AM

I love Greek yogurt and fruit for breakfast, but got tired of paying for high priced smooth, creamy Fage. So not I make my own.

I take a quart of fat free plain yogurt and drain it in a cheesecloth lined strainer. Put the strainer over a bowl and put in the refrigerator overnight.

In the morning, it is ready to use. I like combining it with a sweetener and fresh grated ginger before putting in to fruit. Sometimes I use a flavored stevia extract, english toffee is my current favorite, and drizzle a little over the yogurt and fruit.
