I make yoghurt cheese and I think it will be free if you use fat free yoghurt.
place a colandar over a large bowl and line with strerilised muslin. pour in 1 tub of fat free plain yoghurt. You can leave to drip as it is or tie up the corners and hang over a bowl, let it drip through for several hours or overnight until the thickness you want, I used to suspend mine from the fridge shelf with a wooden spoon. you now have something that looks like soft cheese, flavour it as you wish , if you use garlic granules and herbs de provence it can taste like Bousin,

Hi Eileen, I've made this several times myself, except I also sir in 1/4 tsp of salt to draw the liquid - it's yummy

Aha - can this take place of the quark I can't find? Syn free? x

Well, if you add herbs & stuff, it tastes and has the texture of Boursin
Not sure it would cook well, and act like quark, I'm pretty sure that it would probably split

I love Boursin! So, I would drain the 0% Greek yoghurt I have overnight, then in the morning add stuff? How about minced garlic and dried chives? Or would the herbs have to be fresh? x

When I've done mine, I puréed the garlic, very finely chopped some onion, and fried in frylight, just to take the edge off of the rawness of it, added herbs (I did use fresh), mixed it all together, then let it drain overnight in the fridge - it was scrumptious

I used to do this loads but used total 0% yoghurt. It never affect my weight loss.
