Manouri is a semi-soft, fresh Greek whey cheese with Controlled Denomination of Origin (DOC). It is made exclusively in the protected areas of Central and Western Macedonia and in Thessalia that are recognized to produce the cheese.

The cheese is made by adding milk and/or cream to the whey of sheep's and goat's milk derived from hard cheese production. Manouri is a creamy and mild cheese with a texture reminding a light cheesecake. It is sometimes characterized of having a milky, slightly citrusy flavour. This cheese is also known as Manoypi and is used in pastries such as spanakopita or drizzled with honey. This creamy cheese with no casing is also served for breakfast as a low-fat alternative to Greek yogurt.
