That is not cream cheese!!! Cream cheese requires whole milk, heavy cream, buttermilk culture (not buttermilk!), calcium chloride, rennet (for cheese making), and cheese salt. The ingredients must be heated to a certain temperature to produce curds, which then need to be drained.

What you made is drained yogurt, also known as Greek yogurt. If you drain it further, you end up with Labneh which is a much thicker yogurt that has the texture of a very soft cream cheese. It is NOT real cream cheese!
