  1. Line a large sieve with cheesecloth or coffee filters and set it over a bowl; spoon in yogurt. Place in the refrigerator to drain for about 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine blueberries, grated lime zest, lime juice and sugar in a medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat until the berries are just beginning to break down and release their juices, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate.
  3. Just before serving, add the drained yogurt to the cooled berries and stir to combine. Garnish with strips of lime zest.
  • Reduced-fat yogurts usually have more calcium than milk because milk solids are added as a thickener.
