Yogurt Cheese


What is Yogurt cheese ?


Yogurt cheese is a soft cheese made from draining the whey from yogurt. You will not find this cheese in the grocery stores but, it can be easily made at home.

Believed to have originated in Lebanon, yogurt cheese has a very smooth consistency much like cream cheese, but with the distinctive tangy taste of yogurt. It can be made from flavored yogurt, as well as plain.

Besides being delicious, yogurt cheese is high in calcium and great for those who are lactose intolerant, as the yogurt-making process converts the lactose in the milk into lactic acid.

Yogurt cheese is extremely versatile and can be used to add a nice zip of flavor to virtually any recipe in which cream cheese is used.

Once you make it, you probably would not have any problems coming up with your own original serving ideas that suit your tastes.

More suggestion:

  • Traditional – Serve covered in olive oil with crushed mint and black olives. Eat on toasted pita.
