Dairy-Free Yogurt Cheese
Prep time
Total time
Please note that the Prep time doesn't include refrigeration. This recipe is super-fast to make, but does require you to plan a day ahead.
Serves: 2 servings
  1. Place a fine mesh sieve on a bowl to catch any liquid. Line the sieve with three square layers of cheesecloth.
  2. Scrape the yogurt into the center of the cheesecloth. Bring the corners of the cheesecloth together and gently twist to enclose the yogurt into a round.
  3. Refrigerate for 24 hours.
  4. Once ready, the cheesecloth should peel away to reveal a soft but spreadable wheel of dairy-free yogurt cheese. It will be similar to a whipped cream cheese in consistency.
  5. If desired, transfer the yogurt cheese to a bowl and stir in the sweetener and salt until smooth.
  6. The leftover liquid can be used like a dairy-free "whey" in smoothies. It tastes good!
  7. Store any leftover dairy-free yogurt cheese in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Yogurt Note: I usually don't specify one brand as your only option, but this recipe requires a dairy-free yogurt without gums. See my Essential Notes & Tips in the post above.
