Homemade Cream Cheese

Prep Notes

It doesn't get easier than this. Drip some yogurt. One ingredient recipe. Two different end products. 


From 1 yogurt you will get about 1/2 the weight cheese and half the weight whey.


  • plain yogurt with live bacteria (see my homemade yogurt recipe for maximal potency)
  • strainer
  • cheese cloth


  1. Line your strainer with cheese cloth, set over a cup.
  2. Plop the yogurt in the lined strainer, let it drip overnight or possibly as little as an hour (more time = more thickness).
  3. Serve for weekend breakfast (or whenever).

*Optionally add salt, herbs, or dried fruit, mix with honey, jam...


Keep the leftover liquid -" whey" - to use in fermenting vegetables, fish, in baking, or make chia gel with it.
