  • 1 large tub plain nonfat yogurt


  1. Put the yogurt in a plastic strainer, and set the strainer in a larger bowl. Liquid will start to drip out of the yogurt and in to the bowl. (Metal strainers will work, but they tend to rust, so I don’t recommend them.)

  2. Let sit in the refrigerator 8 hours or overnight.

  3. Over time, liquid drips into the bowl. Remove the Greek yogurt from the strainer, and discard the liquid.
