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!



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.



it's delicious and it works with some adjustments. Make sure you STRAIN the yogurt ( place a mesh strainer on top of a bowl, put some nylon or cheese cloth on it, pour the yogurt on top of the cloth, fold the ends to cover and refrigerate for no less than 6 hours or overnight).... i used fage yogurt and even though it says strained-yogurt i still went ahead and strained it again. i don't have an ice cream machine yet, so i used the freezing directions from the recipe "peach frozen yogurt" from Stephanie Norr
