Homemade Yogurt CheeseYogurt cheese is easy to make at home from plain or flavored yogurt and comes out like a spreadable cream cheese or thick firm cottage cheese.
For plain yogurt cheese, line a strainer with a double thickness of cheesecloth or a single coffee filter, and place it over a container to catch the liquid. Spoon in the yogurt , cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate it at least overnight. The moisture will drain out and firm up the yogurt. The longer you let it drain, the firmer it becomes. Use within one week. The drained whey may be used as part of the liquid in baked goods.
Adding sugar to plain yogurt makes it more spreadable and works well in dessert dishes. A plain yogurt cheese is said to produce a superior frozen yogurt.
