Frozen yogurt is another favorite summer flavor. Frozen yogurt has a flavor that is similar to that of ice cream or sherbet, but it’s not as rich. It is much lighter tasting, and the flavors are usually as abundant as the flavors of ice cream – you’ll find vanilla frozen yogurt, chocolate frozen yogurt, strawberry frozen yogurt, and everything in between. What draws people to frozen yogurt is that it’s usually seen as a much healthier alternative to ice cream as it is much lower in fat.
There is a pretty good frozen yogurt recipe here. Basically, the recipe involves using vanilla, milk, sugar, gelatin, salt, corn syrup, and of course plain yogurt. You cook some of the ingredients, let them cool, combine the rest, chill them, then pour into an ice cream machine and freeze. The recipe above gives you the specifics.
