Creamy Vanilla Frozen Yogurt
3 cups plain Greek yogurt
3/4 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Mix together the yogurt, sugar, and vanilla. Refrigerate the yogurt mixture for 45 minutes.
2. Pour the yogurt mixture into the bowl of an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's directions. Easy, easy . . . and oh, so delightful. We had no left-overs.
*Notes: Recipe obtained originally from allrecipes.com. I changed it just a bit. I doubt that the pre-refrigeration is entirely necessary, but I included it since it was in the original recipe. I did it and it shortened the freezing time by a little more than half. So instead of taking 45 minutes to freeze, it only took about 20 minutes. Mom tried it and gave a great recommendation for those who have a 2 quart ice cream maker: She suggested using 4 cups of yogurt, 1 cup of white sugar, and 1 tsp of vanilla. That way you don't have 1 cup of extra yogurt that you don't know what to do with afterwards.
