Creamy Vanilla Ice Cream with Yogurt

I was playing around with a simple recipe from Ben and Jerry's, and my wife was appaled at the amount of heavy cream required (2:1, cream:milk). The result was a very fatty ice cream that was delicious but made us have tummie aches due to eating too much. So I started fiddling with the proportions, and added some yogurt to add some creamyness. The result was a tangy vanilla that probably wouldn't remind you of yogurt at first taste--the yogurt seems to just bring out the other flavors well.

    This turned out great. I was really quick and easy to mix together. It isn't as creamy as full fat ice cream, but the flavor was great and I really liked the tang from the yogurt, I may even add more next time. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    Very good considering the reduced amount of fat. Not as creamy and melts quicker than other recipes containing more heavy cream, but the trade-off is a healthier blend.

    Soooo creamy and delicious! Thank you for posting this. I am truly trying to cut out some of the fat but can't give up the goodies! I used skim milk because that's all I had and it is still wonderful.
