Greek yogurt is one of the top “clean foods“ out there. Healthy eaters love greek yogurt as it is high in protein and low in calories. It’s also very creamy and tasty. Problem is, where I live we don’t have any. When I found out how easy it was to make I knew I needed to give it a try. Now you can too!
Here is how to make Greek Yogurt:
Step 1- Put a pasta strainer on top of a large bowl. On top of the strainer put a cloth to hold the yogurt. I use a clean baby spit up cloth. I know, sounds funny but it works! You can use some cheese cloth or any thin cloth.
Step 2- Pour all the yogurt into the strainer/cloth. Tie up the cloth so all the yogurt is in place and won’t spill out.
Step 3-Put the bowl into the fridge and let it sit for 10 hours.
After 10 hours the bowl will have liquid in it. This is the whey from the yogurt. (You can spill it out. Some people use it in smoothies etc, but I spill it out.) When you uncover the yogurt it will be thick and creamy.
Step 4- All you have to do now is put all the yogurt into a container.
I use 0% plain yogurt. I usually make this Saturday night and it is ready to eat on Sunday morning. Then I have a whole container for the week. It would probably be easier to buy one big container of plain yogurt and make it, but here I could only find individual plain yogurts so I use those.
What to do now with your greek yogurt? Well, you will have to wait for that recipe later this week!
