Why Is Greek Yogurt So Thick?

Last night it was rainy, and a bit chilly.  Fall is definitely here.  And by gosh I think it’s stew time.  I could not for anything think of what to make for dinner last night.  I was so happy to end up leafing through recipes and remembering about my awesome curried lentil stew.  Sorry I don’t have a recipe for it, I kind of wing it every time.  It’s just lentils, potato, carrot, onion, celery, garlic, and yellow curry powder.

This morning for breakfast I’m having cinnamon toast crunch.  Okay not that sugary cereal that I used to have when I was a kid.  I’m having toast with cinnamon sprinkled on and a blend of vanilla probiotic yogurt and plain greek yogurt.

Yesterday Brad posed a question to me that I did not have an answer to.  He is just starting to enter the world of greek yogurt.  He’s always liked yogurt and cereal for breakfast but sometimes it doesn’t fill him up.  I make my own cereal blend that includes toasted quinoa for extra filling but now I’m getting him into greek yogurt too.  Yesterday he asked “why is greek yogurt to thick?”

I couldn’t answer it.  He then said “it’s so thick you could build a wall with it.”  I guess it’s filling him up.

So help me …

    The process of making Greek yogurt involves excessive straining of yogurt to remove alot of the liquid, resulting in a thicker texture. :)
