Step 1: Buy Some Plain Yogurt (whole Is Best)

Buy a 32 or 64 ounce container of whole milk yogurt (no gelatin or funny stuff)...open container.

Step 2: Dig a Hole Along One Side of the Container

Dig a hole down into the yogurt..(use the removed yogurt in cereal or smoothie)...and return container to refrigerator. As the Whey collects in the hole (pour off into cooking, cereal or smoothies), the remaining solids become the version of yogurt known as Greek yogurt (higher protein in the "drained yogurt...that's how Greek yogurt is made).

Step 3: Viola - GREEK Yogurt for the Price of Regular Yogurt

Pay for Regular yogurt...Get the more expense Greek Yogurt variety...in the same container. Painless, easy, delish! No clean-up, no additional containers.

Use your Greek yogurt as you normally would....but get another container going...as it will go FAST!
