Yogurt Cheese

While technically not a cheese, yogurt cheese is similar to cream cheese, and it’s easy to make. This can be made with homemade or store-bought yogurt. The tangy flavor is tasty when mixed into desserts.

Yields about 1 cup, depending on type of yogurt used.


  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Set a clean coffee filter inside a mesh strainer. Pour the yogurt into the coffee filter and stir in salt, if using. Place strainer atop a bowl to catch liquid, and move to a refrigerator for overnight, or until whey stops draining. Enjoy it fresh, or use it in recipes as you would cream cheese.

Now you have three easy cheeses under your belt! Of course, you could eat them just as they are, but why not go a step further and incorporate them into some specialty dishes? Use your fresh cheeses in a few of my favorite recipes.
