What a nice summer dessert! Used this recipe as kind of a guideline, and it turned out very well. For the yogurt, I used a 7oz container Greek yogurt and 1 1/2 cups lowfat regular yogurt. Substituted a sweet white wine for the vodka, added 3/4 tsp vanilla extract, and reduced the sugar by about 2 Tbsp. I found that the small amount froze very quickly in my ice cream maker (only 20 minutes) and became very firm after being in the freezer for a couple hours. I would suggest removing the frozen yogurt from the freezer at least 10 minutes before serving. Can't wait to make this again.
This is good frozen yogurt!!! It is almost like sorbet because of the amount of fruit vs dairy. I used kirsch and I threw in a few raspberries that I had extra along with the strawberries. Thanks for the recipe!!
This is GREAT. I did modify the recipe a bit, but same basic ingredients...I used vanilla flavored vodka, 1 tablespoon. I also used 1/4 cup of Splenda and 1 tsp of Stevia herb to sweeten, in place of the sugar. AND I used 2 1/2 cups of fat-free greek yogurt to make it a bit thicker. This made my ice cream maker overflow just a tiny bit, but no biggie. Yum, thanks for posting!
