Very Thick Homemade Greek Yogurt | | #yogurt #greekyogurt #homemadegreekyogurt #strainedyogurt

It’s very easy to make your greek yogurt at home. Using homemade yogurt is highly recommended.




  1. Put the strainer over the bowl.
  2. Pour the regular homemade yogurt in the bag made from cheesecloth. If you don’t have that kind of a bag, line the top of a bowl with a double layer of cheesecloth and fix it there with an elastic band and pour yogurt on it.
  3. Fold the excessive top of the bag and put something heavy on it. I put a small mortar made of brass, but a large stone works fine too. This helps the straining process better. If you don’t have the bag, just skip this part.
  4. Wait it this way in the refrigerator overnight. I let it sit there for 8 hours and it’s super thick and creamy, just like cream cheese. If you don’t want your Greek yogurt very thick, 3-4 hours will be fine too.
  5. Transfer the strained yogurt into an airtight container and keep in the refrigerator. Use it in whatever recipes you like.
