Quick and easy: creamy homemade Labneh from scratch

In this video, Suzy Karadsheh of the ‘Mediterranean Dish’ YouTube channel, demonstrates how easy it is to make silky and delicious ‘Labneh’, a dip popular all over the Middle East.

Tangy, thick and creamy, labneh is basically yogurt ‘cheese’. Just like Greek yogurt, it is made by straining yogurt until it loses most of its liquid. An easy way of distinguishing the two is as follows: if you think of Greek yogurt as strained yogurt, labneh is extra-strained  yogurt.

And did we mention it’s delicious? Perfect for the steadily-rising temperatures as a side dish to any meal.
