Homemade Cream Cheese Recipe! Pineapple Cream Cheese Dip!

So now that you’ve strained the whey out of your yogurt, mix in some salt and herbs or fruit and honey and you’ve got a super easy homemade cream cheese substitute that tastes great and happens to be the byproduct of something you were already making.  Go you!  You can experiment with any variety of seasoning or fresh herbs from the garden.

My family has a weird affinity for pineapple cream cheese dip, so I made a version of that with my strained yogurt.

You’ll Need:

  • 16 ounces of yogurt with the whey strained out.
  • 3 tablespoons of mayonaise
  • 8 ounce can of crushed pineapple (drained-ish)
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of sugar

Do this:

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, stir to blend, cover and chill over night.

You can dip all sorts of things in this.  My father prefers to spread it on wheat thins (which I’m allergic to).  I dip potato chips in it.  Lots of people think it’s gross…until they try it and realize that it’s AWESOME.

Does your family have any food that outsiders think is weird but that you love?
