Vanilla Cream

This versatile creamy topping blends the nutritional virtues and creamy texture of drained nonfat yogurt with the luxury of a little whipped cream. Use it in place of full-fat whipped cream or dessert topping. If you like, you can make variations by using different flavors of yogurt or even whisking in a bit of cocoa powder.

Serves 16

Prep Time 15 min

Total Time 75 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup low-fat or nonfat vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons confectioners’ sugar, (optional)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Line a sieve or colander with cheesecloth and set over a bowl, leaving at least 1/2-inch clearance from the bottom. (Alternatively, use a coffee filter lined with filter paper.) Spoon in yogurt, cover and let drain in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Discard whey.

Step 2

Whip cream in a small bowl until soft peaks form. Add sugar, if using, and continue whipping until firm peaks form. Fold in the drained yogurt.
