We may have a winner!

I may have a solution to this morning's cheese-less cheesecake question...

Labne. Not with garlic and oil and other savoury stuff added, OBVIOUSLY. I mean just the strained yoghurt, which has a lovely firm consistency. I reckon mixed with whipped coconut cream it would make a brilliant cheesecake filling. I could add mango, passionfruit, berries....or even make coconut milk caramel.

If I can make the time, I'll give it a go over the weekend.

Labne served with extra virgin olive oil - not exactly what I have in mind. Image source

Thanks to everyone who gave me suggestions. I have a few of those filed away for future experiments too. :)

Iiiinteresting. I have never heard of this stuff. It's a NEW THING, therefore I must try some immediately. ;)

Oh, it's fabulous. The consistency of cream cheese or thick ricotta, but with a lovely yoghurty tang. And super-easy to make too. Very low-tech, just requires a strainer, bowl and some kind of cloth and enough patience to leave it in the fridge overnight.

My cheesecake experiment is in the fridge now. :)
