Serves: 16


  • 2 cups plain yogurt (made without gelatin)
  • 3 Tbsp. raisins
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1⁄2 tsp. ground cinnamon


  • Line a strainer with a coffee filter, using it as a sieve. (If you don't have a paper coffee filter, you can line a colander with paper towels). Spoon yogurt into coffee filter. Place strainer over a bowl so yogurt can drain. Make sure there is at least an inch between the bottom of the strainer and the bottom of the bowl.
  • Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 24 hours. Discard liquid. Carefully remove homemade yogurt cheese from paper. Please note that the longer the yogurt drains, the thicker it becomes.
  • Combine yogurt cheese, raisins, honey, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Chill mixture thoroughly before serving.
