Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

Alright I know I’ve been a little quiet these past couple of weeks but I’ve been a traveling fool.
I wish I could profess that we mastered a grand plan in organization and a 25 hour day but ’twas not the case. We needed reinforcements and so we brought in the big guns — my mother in law, our beloved abuelita. She flew in as a surprise for Ben’s birthday and stayed a little more than a month to help us get through the last 4 or 5 weeks. It is because of her that we kept it together and that we still have our sanity. THANK YOU ABUELITA! We love you.

Just because the weather is getting cooler does not mean there are fewer requests for ice cream in our house. I got this frozen yogurt recipe from one of my favorite food blogs, Alexandra’s Kitchen (see blogroll for link.) It only has 3 ingredients: frozen yogurt, sugar and vanilla. That’s it. All you need is an ice cream maker and you’re in business.

This tastes like what frozen yogurt should taste like…umm…frozen yogurt! Not the kind you get at TCBY or out of a soft-serve machine. This is the good stuff. After making this I think you’ll find it hard to go back.

Frozen Yogurt
Yield = 1 quart

3 cups plain whole-milk Greek yogurt (preferably organic)
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste

Mix together the yogurt, sugar and vanilla. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Freeze in your ice cream machine according to the manufacturer’s directions.
