Since it's been real summer weather in Boston lately, I'm going to share with you my first attempt at making frozen yogurt. It was a project my mother and I had planned to do together, since I had given her an ice cream maker for Mother's Day. She and I are both huge fans of ice cream and frozen yogurt, a trait we inherited from her father. We had agreed on trying frozen yogurt since that seemed healthier and less fattening. I went to her house one night after work - after barely eating anything all day, due to my excitement about making our own frozen yogurt! Having had day-dreams about opening my own "healthy" ice cream shop, I was so looking forward to actually giving this a go. Could I even make palatable frozen yogurt?
Here's a photo play-by-play of our fro yo adventure....

|after mixing in the ice cream maker for 30 minutes, we had a somewhat icy, a little on the soft side, peach frozen yogurt! with the recipe tweaks our next batch will be even better when topped with delicious berries...mmmmm...|
I could really go for some frozen yogurt right now. I may need to make a trip to Berryline.
