Thank you for this awesome idea, Elainia! I used a basket-style paper coffee filter and it works like a charm with my little strainer. For the best flavor and texture, I'll use either Brown Cow Cream Top Plain Yogurt or Stonyfield Plain Cream Top Yogurt. I let mine strain for about 3 hours in the fridge. I also drink the whey (the liquid left in the bottom of the bowl) mixed in a smoothie, juice or a little honey. It's super-high in protein and good probiotics.

I use this all the time to substitute in recipes calling for Greek yogurt. I always use plain nonfat yogurt. If you don't have cheese cloth or a coffee filter, you can also line the sieve with 2 paper towels. You can turn this into a nice fruit yogurt by replacing the liquid that drained off overnight with fruit nectar (just stir the nectar into the thickened yogurt and add some chopped fresh fruit.)

I would give this 10 stars if I could. DH LOVES Greek Yogurt and LOVED this. I even made it with fat free yogurt and it turned out great. Thanks for this healthy, easy and dee-lish money saver.

Fantastic and so easy. We are eating healthier and losing some weight this year so now we have a perfect alternative to sour cream! Thank you, Elainia!

Elainia, I have made this many times, and it always turns out beautifully. The consistency works well for sweet or savory dishes. Thank you for sharing.
