I was never a huge fan of store bought cherry frozen yogurt, which came as a surprise to me because I love cherries.
Truth is I was never a fan of store bought frozen yogurt, they just tasted fake to me.
So when I started experimenting with homemade frozen desserts, I was pleasantly surprised at how good they actually where.
I’ve been making this particular yogurt for the past few years, it tastes fresh and I like the fact that I know everything that is going into it.
So really there is no guilt when it comes to eating as much as a want.
Just be sure to remove it from the freezer 15 minutes before serving, otherwise it will be too hard to scoop.
The corn syrup definitely helps it to not freeze solid so do not skip on that, otherwise you can add vodka instead, but I’ll leave that up to you!
This is not store bought frozen yogurt, but much healthier and tastier I promise you that.
Just be sure to set it outside the freezer 15 minutes prior to serving to ensure easy scooping. If your adding some booze to make it more creamy, be sure not to add more than 3 tablespoons of 40 proof liquor per quart of ice cream base. Makes about fourteen ½-cup servings.
