Meet ‘Anything But Greek’ Labneh 

Strained yogurtGreek yogurtyogurt cheese, or Labneh (Arabicلبنة‎ labnah), is yogurt which has been strained to remove its whey, resulting in a relatively thick consistency (between that of conventional yogurt and cheese), while preserving yogurt’s distinctive, sour taste. Like many types of yogurt, strained yogurt is often made from milk that has been enriched by boiling off some of its water content, and/or by adding extra butterfat and powdered milk

This type of yogurt is sometimes marketed in North America as “Greek yogurt”, which is often misunderstood, as the term “Greek yogurt” is practically unknown in Greece and is instead a marketing term introduced in 1980s by Turkish Kurd businessman Hamdi Ulukaya. – via Wikipedia
