Basic Greek Yogurt Cheese

basic greek yogurt cheese

The coffee filter is set over this coffee mug because I broke the carafe.

a pint of greek yogurt

Spoon the yogurt into a coffee filter, cover with plastic wrap if desired, and put it in the refrigerator to drain overnight. In the morning, it should be about the consistency of cream cheese. It will keep in an airtight container, refrigerated, for a week. Maybe longer, I always eat it up in a week.

You can spread this like cream cheese on a bagel, or on a slice of whole wheat bread. It's also good with a little jam spooned on top, or instead of hummus with smushed avocado, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Or with an underlayer of peanut butter or other nut butter...
