This is a step-by-step tutorial on how to strain yogurt in order to turn it into Greek yogurt. You'll love this easy video on How to Make Greek Yogurt!
Now don't be scared, we're not talking from scratch here. This is just a little tutorial on how to turn regular ole yogurt into thick, creamy Greek yogurt. It's absurdly easy and will save you at least a couple bucks each week at the grocery store - depending on how much yogurt you eat. I use this technique all the time and save the leftover enzyme and probiotic-packed whey for my smoothies and marinades.
Not only is Greek yogurt more expensive than regular, I often have trouble finding the plain, full fat variety at my grocery story (I'm lookin' at you Brigantine Acme!). While I don't mind the low fat stuff for breakfast, I prefer using the real deal for savory applications like tzatziki sauce. It just tastes better!
But I especially love eating a bowl Greek yogurt for breakfast with some fruit and a little sprinkle of granola on top. Whip up a batch of my Chai Spiced Granola and you'll be all set!
This technique will work for any kind of yogurt, whether it's homemade, full-fat, non-fat, or flavored. That being said, I have no idea how it would work with the non-dairy varieties. If you've tried it, leave me a comment to let me know!Print
