How to Make Greek-Style Yogurt
Thick, creamy, and decadent Greek-style yogurt is easy to make at home for a fraction of the cost of commercial varieties. Beyond the superior consistency, Greek-style yogurt contains more protein per ounce (due to the removal of a large portion of the whey) and can be used in place of sour cream in most recipes.
Instructions for Homemade Greek-Style Yogurt
Step 1: Make Yogurt
Although Greek yogurt is traditionally made with a thermophilic yogurt culture such as our Greek Yogurt Starter, Greek-style yogurt can actually be made with virtually any variety of yogurt. Follow the instructions for the yogurt culture you are working with. Once the yogurt is fully set and chilled for at least 6 hours to halt the fermentation process, proceed to step 2.
Step 2: Strain the Yogurt
What makes Greek-style yogurt unique is the thick and creamy texture that is achieved through straining off a significant portion of the whey.
