Well, day one of summer vacation came and went uneventfully.  We moved a bit slower in the morning, made pancakes and eased ourselves into the day.  I’m always a bit uncertain of how things will go during these first few days of togetherness.  Usually, there’s a little more bickering as we settle into the days of summer, being home and around each other a bit more.  Everyone kept themselves pleasantly busy, moving in and out of the house moving from soccer play, to bike riding, to digging with small trucks in the backyard, pausing for a break in the afternoon for a bowl of frozen yogurt.

It was a good day.

I haven’t tried making this frozen yogurt recipe with any other fruit (or fruit combination), but am anxious to try.  Can you imagine it with fresh peaches or raspberries?

    Love the simplicity of this. I am wondering if I could use fat free Greek Yogurt for this since that is what I have on hand. Do you think it would compromise the flavor and/or texture?

    • Alison says:

      Mary B — I’m wondering if it might compromise the thickness. Whole milk greek yogurt it really thick and I think that is what gives this a nice soft serve consistency. The flavor would probably be fine.
