Line a strainer with three layers of 100 percent cotton cheesecloth or a paper coffee filter. Suspend strainer over bowl. Spoon in 1-1/2 cups plain low-fat yogurt. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 24 hours. Discard liquid. Refrigerate yogurt, covered, up to 1 week. Makes about 3/4 cup.
