Vanilla-Frozen-Yogurt-6

My newest kitchen toy is an ice cream maker and boy am I having fun!  I wanted something simple to start out and found a recipe for vanilla frozen yogurt with only three ingredients.  This was so simple and after the initial combination of ingredients and chill time, the ice cream maker made some magic.  It was very creamy and melt in your mouth good!



Vanilla-Frozen-Yogurt-1

You’ll want a good quality whole milk yogurt which proved harder to find than I thought it would be.  I found this carton of Greek yogurt which was 24 ounces or about 4 cups.   I estimated 3/4 cup sugar and a couple teaspoons of vanilla to add to the mix.

Add all your ingredients together in a large bowl and start mixing to incorporate the sugar and vanilla.

Top with a lid or some plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least an hour.


Vanilla-Frozen-Yogurt-5

15 minutes later and it’s ready to eat!


Vanilla-Frozen-Yogurt-7

The yogurt is a bit tangy but the sugar sweetens it to taste a bit like cheesecake with a hint of citrus.  If you like it sweeter, just add 1/4 cup more sugar.
