This has ice cream (frozen yogurt really) has a nice refreshing tang, I think it would be really great with a berry sauce. It also has a little of that dryness on the tongue that froyo can have which I'm not really fond of. I started with vanilla Greek yogurt so cut out almost all the sugar and increased the amount of lemon juice. After reading the other comments, I scooped it into my freezer container with little scoops in hope that it will make it easier to remove, they are definitely rock hard, but I've had this happen with other ice creams so not too concerned. Thanks for sharing your recipe Nan! Made for ZWT9 Greece by another one of The Appliance Killers
