I've really been on a yogurt kick this month. First, I posted how to make homemade yogurt in a crockpot, then about my frugal yogurt starter. Now, I've discovered a lazy way to make Greek-style yogurt.
Let me start by saying that I've known an easy way to make homemade Greek yogurt for awhile. But, it does involve dirtying a few dishes and a cheesecloth. I'm getting lazy now that I'm pregnant with my 3rd, and even that seems like too much work.
Last week I scooped my yogurt out of the container all on one side, leaving a mountain and a valley. When I came back the next day to get more yogurt, presto! The valley was full of whey, leaving Greek-style yogurt behind. All I had to do was pour off the whey. (If you're worried about all your yogurt falling out into the sink, you could also draw off the liquid with a turkey baster.)
It's not quite as thick and creamy as real Greek yogurt, but for zero work and time commitment, it's pretty good!
