Making Greek-style Yogurt, Step 1
5. You can strain your own Greek-style yogurt.
Draining off some of the whey yields the thick yogurt that has made Greek-style hot. Even the nonfat variety has a rich, satisfying texture. Greek yogurt is expensive, though, because it requires more milk. You can produce it for about $1.50 per cup yourself. Start with a plain, natural yogurt, nonfat or low-fat.
Step 1: Spoon plain nonfat or low-fat yogurt into a fine-mesh steel strainer lined with a paper tower or coffee filter.
