Lemon Frozen Yogurt

READY IN: 10hrs 30mins
Top Review by mianbao

This became a cooling and refreshing treat for the hottest day of summer so far. I did use whole milk plain yogurt rather than low-fat vanilla, but followed the recipe in other respects. I froze the mixture in my ice cream machine, and enjoyed it with my husband. I used the 1/2 teaspoon vanilla called for, but may skip it next time, if I use plain yogurt again. I'm thinking of trying other flavors, such as lime and cranberry. Thank you very much for this recipe.

  1. Place yogurt in a fine strainer over a bowl and allow to drain in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  2. Discard the liquid that drains off.
  3. Place the remaining ingredients in a bowl and whisk together until sugar dissolves.
  4. Add the drained yogurt and whisk in well.
  5. Use an ice-cream machine (if you have one); otherwise, place the mixture in a shallow metal tray and freeze for 2 hours or until the mixture is frozen around the edges.
  6. Transfer the mixture to a larger bowl and beat until smooth.
  7. Repeat this step three times.
  8. For the final freezing, place in an airtight container, cover the surface with a piece of waxed paper and a lid, and freeze for 4 hours.
