This versatile creamy topping blends the nutritional virtues of yogurt with the luxury of a little whipped cream.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.


  • 1 cup (8 ounces) low-fat or nonfat vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar (optional)


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.

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