Dripped Yogurt "Cream Cheese" (SCD)

Yogurt that has been dripped for 24 hours will have the consistency of cream cheese and is great for dips. Dripping removes the liquid, called whey. Dripped yogurt is a cinch to make. If using homemade yogurt has been prepared in an SCD legal manner, it will contain almost no lactose.
You will need a colander or strainer to hold the amount of yogurt you want to drip:

Then you want to have a bowl that will hold the colander and have plenty of room for the whey to drip into. You will be amazed at how much whey will drip out.

Drape two pieces of cheese cloth, each long enough to hang over one inch on either side. Lay the pieces in a cross:

Then add the yogurt and place in the fridge for 24 hours to drip:

Then scrape the "cheese" into a bowl and it should keep in the fridge for up to two weeks. Two quarts of yogurt will make about two and a half cups yogurt cheese.
