    Tanya Schaad's Note:

    Adapted from a suggestion in Dean Ornish's book "Eat More, Weigh Less". This is a nice nonfat substitute for cream cheese and doesn't have any of the chemicals and additives that nonfat cream cheeses usually contain. Be sure not to use yogurt that contains gelatin for this recipe. You could also add things like sundried tomatoes and grated carrots for more of a veggie spread, or chives in place of green onions.

      This turned out pretty good! I used chives instead of green onion because I'm the only one that likes onions. I will make this again. Thanks!!

      this was very good and worth the wait! Although next time I will add a little zing to it maybe some cayenne or more of the dry mustard. It was a bit bland, but we did enjoy it. I served it on bagels with thinly sliced lox, cut each bagel half into six pices, a nice little bite for appetizers. Thanks for sharing, I will certainly make it again over the holidays, kinda nice to be able to say I made the cheese myself!!
