I made the orange yogurt for breakfast Saturday. I used a paper towel and a sifter to strain my yogurt, and it worked like a charm, even after only straining for 3 hours. I used Dannon plain lowfat yogurt, and it worked well. I used golden raisins and everything else called for in the recipe, and it turned out really well. I love how easy it was to make and that it can be made well in advance. I think the next time I try it I might try using maple syrup, pecans, figs, and cranberries/cranberry juice. I might also try using plain greek yogurt rather than plain lowfat regular yogurt. I usually eat greek yogurt every day and love its thick consistency, so I bet it would work well in this recipe.
This was very good and I'll definitely try it again. Here's my finished yogurt.
