Homemade Frozen Yogurt

frozen yogurt, originally uploaded by mysterybridgers.

A frozen yogurt place opened up in the city (I think it may be the only one) and we happened to go by the place when it had its grand opening. We tried their frozen yogurt, which was pretty good, but we thought that we could probably do better at home.

We had a 2 day heat wave here in the city and it seemed like a good time to try and make some frozen yogurt to get rid of the hot weather grumpiness. This frozen yogurt is so easy and if you have an ice cream maker, you can make it in about 20 minutes.

Frozen Yogurt:

2lbs Pavels non-fat yogurt (we just used it as is, but the final product would probably be creamier if you strained the yogurt to get some of the water out)
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla

These ingredients were mixed together and placed in the frozen bottom of a Krupps ice cream maker. We ran the ice cream maker for about 20 minutes and then put the mixture in the freezer.

The yogurt that came right out of the maker was the best because it got a tiny bit icey in the freezer. But leaving the yogurt container out on the kitchen table for about 20-30 minutes before eating brought it back to its original consistency.

This yogurt was so tasty that we consumed nearly all of it in 2 days (the super tasty strawberries from the farmer's market didn't hurt either). It was the perfect heat reliever!
