READY IN: 4hrs
Recipe by Mirj2338

Very simple, and a healty, low-fat alternative to cream cheese (but not as thick).

I have a similar recipe (#34119) where I use drained yogurt as a fruit dip, adding cinnamon and maple syrup. I tried your recipe today using 1/4 cup plain yogurt, and draining for 2 hours. A pinch of cinnamon and 2 drops of vanilla extract after draining made for a simply gorgeous dip for apples. Yum!!!
