When yogurt is placed in a coffee filter or cheesecloth-lined sieve (over a bowl) and allowed to drain for several hours, much of the extra moisture drains away, leaving a thicker consistency. The longer it is drained, the thicker it becomes, ultimately becoming the consistency of cream cheese.
With its good nutrition and low-fat content, drained yogurt is a great base for many flavored snacking dips to accompany both vegetables and fruits. Occasionally, the term “yogurt cheese” is used to designate drained yogurt.

Each serving provides: An excellent source of vitamins A and C, and a good source of calcium, potassium and fiber.
