    I used frozen mango chunks from the store. One thing I would like to say is make sure you use good flavorful fruit. This is a great low fat snack or desert. I gave it to my daughter when she was ill and would not eat anything else, and she gobbled it down. I had to use my stick blender, which made a bit extra work, and I had to add some O.J. to get everthing going but it worked great!!

    I used a fruit mixture I got from M@M's. I chopped them up while they were still frozen, I did find I had to add quite a bit more yogurt, more than half a tub of the large container.I used fat free French Vanilla. It turned out very good and I enjoyed the completley fat free desert.I used Splenda instead of sugar. I never seem to have fresh lemons so I used the bottled stuff.

    This was so easy and so good. During a heat wave I was craving frozen fruit. I wanted something more fancy then Philly water ice, but nothing heavy like ice cream. This was the perfect compromise. Totally hit the spot on a muggy summer day.

    I tasted the sorbet before placing it in the freezer (just couldn't resist) and it was delicious!!! I cannot wait to have a serving once the 30 mins are up. Because I used two 10 oz Cascadian Farms - Harvest Berries Blend bags (4 cups), I increased the amount of lowfat vanilla yogurt to 3/4 cup. The sugar and lemon, I left as is. Thank you loads for such an easy, healthy and delicious recipe.

    Fast and quick treat! I used frozen blackberry, raspberry, blueberry. I love the additon of the lemon juice. The 1/3 of a cup of sugar was just right amount of sweetness for us. Thanks for sharing this recipe and one I will be making again.

    I never even thought to make frozen yogurt this way. It was super easy and pretty quick. I replaced the sugar with splenda and it came out fine. I also agree, I would double the amount of yogurt if you like it creamier. Thanks for posting Bergy!

On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
