Greek yogurt is regular yogurt with most of the whey removed. To remove the whey, the yogurt needs to be strained which is simple when using a Greek yogurt maker similar to this Euro Cuisine Greek Yogurt Maker. If you don’t have a Greek yogurt maker use the method below.

You will need a strainer, coffee filter, and a bowl. Make sure there is ample space from the bottom of the strainer and the bowl for the whey to accumulate.

Line the bottom of the strainer with the coffee filter then scoop the yogurt onto it.

Cover strainer with plastic food wrap and place in fridge for a minimum of 4 hours or for a super thick yogurt leave overnight.

  • Greek yogurt can be made from store purchased plant-based yogurt providing there are no thickening ingredients added. Starches and gums prevents proper straining.
  • Should you want to make a large volume of Greek yogurt use a clean cotton tea towel and a seive, then fold excess tea towel over the yogurt.
