    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    From a grocery store flier for National Dairy Month. Cook time is the refrigeration time. When I made mine, I made the mistake of using a blended yogurt and very little separated out. It still tasted good, but next time I'll make sure I pick a brand that separates better.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Set a strainer lined with cheese-cloth or a coffee filter over a large bowl. Place the yogurt in the strainer, cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate 6-24 hours. Yogurt will thicken and liquid will drain into the bowl, leaving about 1 cup of yogurt cheese in strainer. Discard liquid.
    2. 2
      Whisk yogurt cheese, sugar, lemon zest and juice together in a small bowl. Let stand 10-15 minutes or until sugar dissolves.
    3. 3
      Divide fruit among 4 dessert bowls or plates. Top each with 1/4 cup of yogurt cheese. Garnish with lemon zest or sliced almonds if desired.

      This is wonderful on fruits. Have made similar in the past but this is a little different. Because of different taste buds we prefer to cut back on the sugar. Makes a loverly dessert for family or friends and one that you can be proud to serve.
