Drained yogurt can be used as a substitute for cream cheese. Add a little sugar, vanilla and orange or lemon zest to the drained yogurt to garnish desserts such as cakes, pies and fruit salads. Labneh is a salty drained yogurt garnish that accompanies almost every Lebanese meal. It is traditionally served in a mezze plate, drizzled with olive oil and accompanied by Arabic bread and olives. A real treat!
