I'm currently obsessed with YoCream's tart frozen yogurt. Unfortunately, going out for froyo all the time is kind of breaking my budget. I can make a batch of yogurt that is probably 4 large servings for the cost of one serving of yogurt and toppings from YoCream (plus save a couple bucks in gas, it is not close to my house)!



Ingredients:

2 cups Greek yogurt
2 cups fat free plain yogurt
1 cup lemonade (optional)
2 T vodka (optional)
1/2 cup sugar or equivalent no cal sweetener

*You can use any combo of types of yogurt, regular/Greek and low fat/fat free/regular. The Greek yogurt was pretty high in fat so I am glad I combined it with the fat free. The original blog I found the idea on suggested using TJ's European style yogurt, which is supposed to give it that great super tangy flavor. I only use the lemonade to try to get it a little more tangy, if I used the European kind I may not need it.

Mix together all the ingredients in a container with a lid that can go into the freezer.



Chill in the freezer for approximately one hour. Don't skip this step, you will be sorry! I didn't do this the first time and it was a disaster.



Pour into your ice cream maker and follow its directions. With pre-chilling the mix, it only takes mine about 20 minutes to get to a nice soft serve consistency. In the last few minutes you can add flavorings, fruits, syrups, candy, cookies, or whatever your lil heart desires! For now I'm liking keeping mine plain and adding a squirt of caramel or strawberry sauce right before I eat it.



Eat as much as you can when it's thickened and the consistency you like, and freeze the rest in your freezer safe container. The vodka will help it to not freeze too solidly.

that looks sooo flippin good!  and the vodka? Oh yeah.

question?  no problems with curdling with the lemon juice and the yogurt?  I would imagine not since yogurt is a form of curdled milk but just wondered if it threw it over the edge or not?

annnnnd...do you need to use a combination of the higher fat greek yogurt with the low fat/no fat yogurt? Or would just using the greek yogurt work?

I've never made ice cream of frozen yogurt before and this is really inspiring me to go get me an ice cream maker. I loooove frozen yogurt.

I didn't have any problems with curdling, but I used lemonade, not just straight lemon juice, not sure if lemon juice would be a problem or not? BTW, Paul Newman's lemonade is my fave, so nice and tart, I highly recommend it!

The vodka is a bit of an experiment, I've seen it added to sorbet recipes to keep them from freezing too hard, I'll report back on my results compared to the last batch made without it.

I'm sure just the Greek yogurt on it's own would be lovely. I got kind of confused at the store about what kind I was supposed to buy, I really think any combo would work. In the future if I could find lowfat Greek yogurt I would probably try it with that, this stuff had 18 grams of fat per 1 cup. Along with the fat free stuff it still made much lower fat froyo in comparison to ice cream, but I am going to play with it a bit to see if a lower fat version is just as delicious.

I would suggest checking yard sales this time of year for an ice cream maker, someone just told me they scooped one up for $10!
