homemade labneh

A traditional delicacy.

Labneh is a creamy, concentrated yogurt cheese loved throughout the Middle East. It’s made by draining the water (whey) out of yogurt to form a dense, spreadable cream. Traditionally Labneh is made with sheep’s milk or goat’s milk but because of the availability of store-bought yogurt, cow’s milk is very often used now. We show you how to drip cow’s milk yogurt here or watch how on YouTube.

Making labneh from scratch means you end up with a gut loving probiotic delicacy. Thanks to the homemade goat milk yogurt base, the health benefits will surpass anything you can buy. The hardest part of making labneh cheese is waiting for it to drain. Everything else is simple. We promise the authentic rich and tangy flavour is definitely worth waiting for!

Labneh is an indispensable part of mezze platters. Traditionally it is adorned with extra virgin olive oil and seasoned with zaatar or mint and eaten with bread, but the uses for it don’t end there. You can dollop it onto salads or pizza in place of feta cheese or slather it onto sandwiches, and more!
