Easy Overnight Homemade Greek Yogurt

Greek Yogurt is all the craze right now. It’s less calories, more protein, and thicker. It’s easy to sub into recipes to make them have less fat and sugar. And best of all, you can make it at home with my cheap and easy solution.

All You Need 

  • 1 Container Regular Yogurt (I use soy since I’m lactose intolerant)
  • 1 Big Pot
  • 1 Strainer (that fits inside)
  • 1 Coffee Filter
  • Plastic Wrap

What To Do 

1. Place strainer inside pot. Place coffee filter flat on the bottom and push down.

2. Plop all the yogurt in.

3. Cover with plastic wrap.

4. Refrigerate over night. That’s it!

When you come back in the morning, use a big spoon to scoop the yogurt back into it’s original container. You’ll see you’ve got about half the amount that is 3x thicker! The water underneath the strainer is called the whey. It’s very nutritious so use it wisely. I like to use it make my morning oatmeal or smoothie. Since I use vanilla yogurt it’s sweet and has a vanilla taste. Enjoy!
