Have any of you tried yogurt cheese? It it super simple to make and is an awesome substitute for cream cheese or sour cream in dips, recipes, etc..... Plus it has a TON less fat! Yogurt has 3.4 grams of fat per 8 oz, sour cream has 47 grams fat per 8 oz and cream cheese has 64 grams of fat per 8 oz! So you can have a LOT more creamy goodness with yogurt cheese! I have not tried this with the greek yogurts, so I don't know how it would work with those. It also does not work well with the Yoplait Thick and Creamy yogurt because those have gelatin added to make them so thick. To make yogurt cheese you line a wire colander, sieve or strainer with a good paper towel or coffee filter. Put the strainer in a bowl and pour in a container or two of yogurt. Cover the strainer with plastic wrap and set it in the fridge overnight. In the morning take it out and put the contents of the strainer into a container. You can discard the liquid in the bowl. At this point you are done. You can add herbs, spices, powdered ranch dressing mix, almost anything to the yogurt cheese. it will make a great dip or spread. For most things, esp savory dips, use plain lowfat yogurt. You can use fruit or vanilla yogurt if you want a sweet dip or base. I have used vanilla yogurt cheese to make fruit pizza and it is wonderful. Just make a big sugar cookie and cool it. Spread the vanilla yogurt cheese on it and then arrange sliced fruit on top of it. You can add cinnamon to the cheese if you want. If you want to use less sugar, make the plain yogurt cheese and sweeten it with honey and add cinnamon for a great fruit dip. Have you ever had the fruit dip made with cream cheese and marshmallow fluff? You soften the cream cheese and fold in the fluff, then serve it with fruit. It was a big deal in teh bank I used to work at. I made it with vanilla yogurt cheese once and WOW! It was really amazing and much healthier than using cream cheese. I thought a healthy recipe might be nice after that brown sugar glazed bacon recipe!! What can you think of using this yogurt cheese for?
