Do-it-Yourself Pinkberry

Since I really like Pinkberry but I don't like paying $5 for it, I decided to concoct my own. If you have an ice cream maker, try this recipe and see if it satisfies your cravings, too.

2 cups nonfat plain yogurt
1/2 cup 2% milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup half and half

Blend ingredients together with a hand mixer. Put into ice cream maker. Serve with your favorite toppings.

The taste is similar, but the texture is a bit icier. Also, it tastes best right out of the ice cream maker. Once you freeze it, it gets fairly hard and requires some defrost time before it's soft enough to eat again.

This is a really great recipe. It tastes just like pinkberry! You can use lowfat plain yogurt for a healthier option. I like adding vanilla extract to mine for added flavor. You can also mix in some green tea powder in for green tea yogurt. I would recommend this to anybody

I'm definately going to try this. I've been looking for an easy frozen yogurt recipe. :) Unfortunatly I don't have any yogurt at the moment. :(

This is a great recipe, so far it's the best one I've used. The only thing I would suggest is to freeze the blended ingredients in a bowl for about 15 minutes before putting it in the ice cream machine. This will make the churning process go a little quicker.

Also, just as a side note, I use the Cuisinart Ice-30BC ice cream machine for all my frozen yogurt needs.
