   yogurt. Blender. Mock sour cream IV: put plain low-fat
   yogurt in a paper coffee filter cone and allow it to

   combine 1 cup sour half & half and 1 cup plain low-fat
   yogurt.  Blend. Cream cheese base I: combine 1
   softened 3 oz. pkg. cream cheese with 1 cup part-skim
   ricotta cheese. Blender. Cream cheese base II: combine

   these products may be as fattening and
   cholesterol-dangerous as the real thing. Source: Magic
