Yields1 Serving
Prep Time10 mins

Ingredients

 1 cup natural yoghurt (no added sugar)
 1 metal strainer
 1 glass or metal bowl
 1 small cotton or muslin cloth

Method

1

Place the cotton cloth inside the strainer as a liner. Sit over the bowl, making sure that the strainer is sitting high enough to allow the liquid to drain through.

2

Pour the yoghurt into the strainer. Allow to sit at room temperature for several hours or overnight. For extra liquid, carefully tie the towel to a wooden spoon or similar, and position above the strainer, making sure not to squeeze the towel in the process.

3

The result will be liquid whey in the bowl and a cream cheese or labna in the cloth.

Storage
4

Store the liquid whey in a glass jar in the fridge for up to a week, or freeze for several months. It can be used for fermenting vegetables and making beet kvass, or adding to soup just before serving for extra health benefits.

5

Store the cream cheese or labna in the fridge in a glass jar and eat within a week as a delicious healthy dip or spread. Add grated beetroot or herbs for variety.
