I eat plain yogurt every day. I buy it by the quart sized container. I use three heaping tablespoons for my dry cereal instead of milk in the morning. Until last week, every morning, the whey would collect in the depression I made when scooping out my morning yogurt. Whey is thin and watery and not very appetizing. Then last week I tried a new system. After scooping out my three tablespoons of yogurt, I take the spoon and push down the rest of the yogurt in the container to make the surface smooth like when I first open a fresh container. This seems to keep the whey from separating. Now each morning the yogurt is consistent all the way through the entire container. Not a biggie, but it was something that was troubling me and I found a solution.
