Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

Hidy Ho Everyone,

I’m officially back from my trip, however I am writing this in advance since I get in so late on Sunday.  I have been dabbling in making frozen yogurt.  I bought my machine about a month ago and I love and hate it!!  I figured I would share my experience with you to see what you think and if you have ever used an ice cream maker.

When I first make the ice cream it is so creamy smooth that I could eat a whole carton.  But then it happens! I put it in a freezer safe container and butta bing butt a doo, it turns out rock hard!  I leave it on my counter for an hour or longer to soften up, but it’s still pretty hard.  The first night I made ice cream, I let it sit on my counter for 4 hours, it finally soften up and I ate most of it!  I couldn’t help it, it was good!!

I can’t give credit to anyone in particular for this recipe, since I seen it on all sorts of sites and blogs.  I made vanilla frozen yogurt.  It was pretty simple.  I used Chobani plain yogurt, 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.  It was very, very good!  After this ice cream, I also did the same thing, but added peanut butter and another time I added cherries.  I love it!! I just hate the frozen part of it.  I want to learn more about make ice cream making because I would love to make all sorts of flavors!

Have you ever made frozen yogurt?  How was your take on it?  I love it because of the taste of course, but the nutritional stats are wonderful, way better than store-bought.  Who can beat 108 calories for a half a cup and 9 grams of protein and no fat?  Now I know regular ice cream contains egg yolks, heavy cream and lots of sugar, but I can’t do that!  Ice cream is one of those treats that I want more of, so the healthier it is, the better off I am.
