Basic Strained Yogurt
|Plain non fat yogurt||1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)|
|English muffins/Bread slices||4 , toasted|
|Marmalade/Fruit spread||8 Teaspoon|
Put the yogurt in the strainer over a bowl, or you can use a coffee filter, muslin or a paper towel and place in a small sieve over a bowl.
Cover and let it drain in the refrigerator, for 5 hours or overnight.
The liquid whey drains into the bowl, leaving you with a thick creamy yogurt cheese.
To Serve: Spread 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of the strained yogurt on each toasted muffin half and spread with 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of the marmalade.
