I have been making my own yogurt for years (love my yogurt maker) - found this on the web last week and figured - hey if I can make my own greek yogurt cheaper than I can purchase at the store - I'll give it a try. YUMI
Make your own Greek yogurt: Line a sieve with a coffee filter and set it over a bowl. Place 4 cups plain whole-milk yogurt in the filter and refrigerate for 12 hours (you'll get about 2 cups thick yogurt). Divide among bowls; top with honey, dried fruit or as I do - I always have a bag of frozen fruit - sometimes I take about 1/2 cup out and put into my plain yogurt.
