Homemade Frozen Yogurt

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS or Mormon) we are lucky to have multiple magazines published monthly that have great articles and The Friend, which is for children, always has a Kitchen Kraft. This was the June recipe and it was alot fun to make with the kids and it tasted great, especially on a hot day. I froze it in little plastic cups and we went for the Strawberry Mango variation. I know we are going to be making this again!

Homemade Frozen Yogurt
Whip up yummy homemade frozen yogurt in your own kitchen. Mix together 16 ounces of fat-free or regular vanilla yogurt with your favorite fruits, and spoon the mixture into serving-size freezer containers with lids. Store the containers in the freezer. To serve, remove the lid and soften the yogurt in the microwave for about 45 seconds. Here are some examples of flavor combinations you can try.

Converting ounces to grams:
16 ounces = 454 grams
8 ounces = 227 grams
4 ounces = 113 grams

Cherry Vanilla
Use 16 ounces fresh or frozen pitted cherries

Strawberry Mango
Use 8 ounces of fresh or frozen sliced strawberries and 8 ounces of fresh or frozen chopped mangoes

Berry Berry Good
Use 4 ounces each of fresh or frozen blueberries, raspberries, sliced strawberries, and blackberries.

Peachy Walnut
Use 16 ounces of fresh or frozen chopped peaches and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts.

Tropical Pineapple
Use 8 ounces of fresh or frozen chopped pineapple and 8 ounces of fresh or frozen chopped papaya.

Tangy Treat
Use 16 ounces of fat-free lemon yogurt instead of vanilla; 2 oranges, seeded and chopped; 4 tangerines, seeded and chopped; and 2 kiwi, peeled and chopped.
