1 (32 oz.) container plain low-fat yogurt (Stonyfield Farm Organic Yogurt is best)
1-2 tbs. granulated sugar
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
dash of ground cloves
dash of ground nutmeg
Line a colander or a strainer with cheesecloth or a paper coffee filter. Place colander in bowl. Spoon the yogurt into the center of the colander. Let sit overnight (the longer, the firmer the cheese will be) in the refrigerator. In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt cheese, sugar, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Store the yogurt cheese in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Makes about 2 cups.
