Use this delicious cheese as a spread, or filling, or serve it simply, as is, for dessert.

Yogurt Cheese
Recipe type: Cheese
Serves: 1 Cup
  • 2 Cups low fat plain yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • grated zest of 1/2 orange
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons honey
  1. Spoon the yogurt into a coffee cone fitted with a paper filter. Place the cone over a bowl and let drain at room temperature for at least 8 hours or overnight. Discard the whey or use it for another purpose. The longer the yogurt drains, the thicker the cheese will be.
  2. Transfer to a bowl or other container and stir in the orange juice, zest, and honey. Cover tightly and chill well before using.
This recipe yields 1 cup.
