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.

16 ounces = 454 grams

8 ounces = 227 grams

4 ounces = 113 grams
