Directions

Cook's Note: The Greek yogurt provides an especially creamy texture, but if you like, you can swap in low-fat yogurt to further reduce your calories and fat.

In a food processor with the knife blade attached, pulse 1 cup frozen strawberries until finely chopped. Transfer the chopped berries to a large metal bowl.

Add the yogurt, sugar, vanilla and remaining strawberries to the food processor and puree until smooth. Transfer to the bowl with the frozen strawberries and stir until well combined. Cover and freeze until firm but not hard, about 1 hour. Garnish with fresh strawberries.

    This was delicious. I also used the 0 fat greek yogurt with no issues. In addition, I used a combination of sugar substitute and sugar in the raw, it did cut down on the tartness. Will make again and try different fruits.

    Super easy & super delicious! This was the hit of my July 4th party and I had to steal the bowl back to get some myself. I substituted Splenda for the sugar and no one knew. Guests requested this for all remaining summer picnics. I will try this with other fruits during the summer. Thanks for a labor saving, yummy recipe.

    Made this frozen yogurt today. I did use fat free greek yogurt and splenda instead of sugar. This recipe is really creamy and tart but very flavorful. I cannot wait to try other fruits with it.
