How To Turn Yogurt Into Greek Yogurt

INGREDIENTS

64 ounces plain yogurt

3 paper towels

PREPARATION

1.Place a colander over a large bowl, then press 2 paper towels into the bottom.

2.Scoop out the yogurt into the paper towels, then press the last paper towel on top of the yogurt.

3.Sit for about 1 hour, letting the whey drip out. The longer you let it sit, the thicker the yogurt will be. Refrigerate the draining setup if longer than 1 hour to keep freshness.

4.Peel off the top paper towel, then lift the yogurt out of the colander and transfer into a large bowl.

5.Mix the yogurt until it reaches a smooth consistency, then save for later use!

And here's everything you can make with your Greek yogurt!
