About this recipe: If you want a creamy summertime treat without all of the fat and calories, frozen yoghurt it what you are looking for! This is a creamy and delicious frozen yoghurt recipe with a subtle hint of vanilla.
I used Greek light natural yoghurt, added a mashed banana and some mashed defrosted strawberries and the juice! Would probably omit some of the sugar next time as the fruit makes it sweeter. Great recipe though, thanks! - 13 Mar 2016
I have the benefit of living currently in Greece where "fresh greek yogurt" is available in endless varieties: full fat, 2%, non-fat, skinless, with skin, flavored or not ... you name it! Please do not strain your yogurt; you lose all the prebiotic cultures that are soo good for your health! To overcome the "rock-solid" effect the day after you freeze your desert try either of the two: 1. disolve 1 tsp unflavored gelatin in 1 tbsp water and 1 tbsp lemon juice, and stir in before you freeze, or 2. (provided you don't serve it to kids) stir in your mix a good shot of vodka or favorite "sweet liquor" like peach schnapps, kalhua (coffee) or baileys. The alcohol keeps it from freezing to a rock. Great - simple recipe! Will keep churning! - 22 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is very similar to David Lebovitz's recipe from the cookbook Perfect Scoop. Except that he calls for 1 tsp. vanilla. I made this recently and could not stop eating it! It is SO good! If you like true frozen yogurt. It does get very hard in the freezer after awhile which doesn't bother me but just let it sit out for a little to soften up if you prefer it that way. You can also add pureed fruit to the mixture before freezing to make flavored yogurt. I plan to try using low-fat yogurt next time. ***UPDATE: made this with 2% yogurt and half sugar half sun crystals (Stevia and cane sugar) and was disappointed. It froze really quickly in my ice cream maker then got rock hard in the freezer. Won't be making the lighter version again anytime soon. - 08 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
