BUT I found an awesome way to make Greek yogurt for way cheaper (like $2.50) and it is just as delicious! You just need to gather a few items...
- 32 oz. organic, plain, non-fat regular yogurt (usually about $2 - 3)
- Cheese cloth
- Rubber band
- Tall, narrow tupperware container (or the glass container of a blender works well too
Step 1: Take a portion of the cheese cloth (about 12 inches long) and secure it on the top of your tupperware container with the rubber band. Be sure you have a double layer of cheese cloth (like so)
Step 2: empty entire container of yogurt into the cheese cloth.
Step 3: place in the refrigerator overnight. The longer you let it sit, the thicker it will get!!
|Looks thicker! This was after about 18 hours|
|It shrank! All the liquid that came out!|
Getting rid of the excess liquid that is in the yogurt is what will make the super thick greek yogurt! And guess what, you only payed a fraction of what it actually costs!
But even though you started with 32 oz of yogurt, you will not be let with that much (obviously). After the whole process is over, you are left with about 19 oz of thick greek yogurt for flavoring and eating. And 19 oz of yogurt is a perfect amount for me, because I am able to use it all without having it go to waste because of spoilage...no fun.
