Thanks for that JSpeed; I hadn't seen that one.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

I made this for breakfast today... it was good. I used coconut nectar instead of honey and dreid, unsweetened cranberries instead of raisins.

Haha, I wasn't even thinking. I had yogurt making on my mind and was thinking about from scratch - this is just way to easy emoticon . I've got milk coming from the farm on Monday and am going to give yogurt making in the crockpot a try.

All Greek-style yogurt is, is yogurt that has had the whey drained out of it. Most of the yucky yogurts in the grocery store have had stuff added to them to keep the whey from "leaking" out. stuff like gelatin and/or other thickeners like xanthan gum. Real yogurt, thickened by the action of live bacteria added to milk, will separate as soon as you spoon into it and even sometimes will even have a bit of watery looking whey on the top when you open it. This is actually a good sign that the yogurt hasn't been abused by marketers desire to make more money...that's another story.

Here's what you do:
Put natural yogurt (no additives) in a fine screen mesh and let it drip as long as you like to get the thickness of what we call "Greek yogurt". Actually it's just yogurt cheese.

I like to line my strainer with a piece of muslin and let it drip all night. I put it in the fridge to do this. In the morning I have a nice lump of thick yogurt cheese that I scrape away from the cloth into a glass storage container.

The whey can be used in making anything that calls for liquid from soups to pancakes. It works like buttermilk in baking and adds flavor to savory things. Or, you can pour it over your pet's food. Chickens absolutely LOVE whey and it is very, very nutritious. I like to just drink it--it's sour, a little like lemon. You could mix it with another fruit juice and your kids would probably like it and you would be giving them a healthy thing.

ps: yogurt cheese, depending on how firm you make it, can be used just like cream cheese. It has a lighter texture but it is yummy.

I think this recipe intends that regular yogurt be used so your idea of not soaking the chia seeds is good if you are using a Greek-style yogurt. I like both the Greek-style and regular style depending on what I'm using them for. I make my own Greek-style so then I don't have to give up the nutritious whey; I can use it in something else.

Thanks for sharing Aniduckthistle. I found a couple of other interesting looking recipes on this site. I made the carrot cake breakfast and really liked it with this caveat - putting the chia in makes the yogurt really thick (and I was already using greek yogurt). I think it'd be better if the topping was a little "runny" so I'll probably add the chia to the carrot mixture or leave it out.

Wow! That looks really good. I am also happy to say that I seem to be able to stomach yogurt again. Not the high protein Greek stuff, but just regular yogurt. *whew! If I had to throw away all dairy I think I would go nuts! lol
Thanks for that ANI! Maybe I will have that for breakfast.
