Serves: 1 cup
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt (preferably Chobani)
  • 2 tablespoons grated unsweetened coconut (preferably fresh)
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • juice and zest from 1 Meyer lemon
  • juice and zest from 1 Clementine orange (optional)
  • cheesecloth (for straining)
  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Drape cheesecloth over a medium-sized bowl. Slowly pour in yogurt mixture and cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  3. In the morning, remove cheesecloth from bowl and twist to secure top so that cheesecloth forms a ball around the yogurt mixture. Squeeze the ball a few times to remove any excess liquid.
  4. Unfold cheesecloth and serve immediately.
