1 quart lowfat plain yogurt

1 to 2 lemons

Measuring spoons

Step 1: Gather the Ingredients

1 quart lowfat plain yogurt

One, maybe 2, large lemons

1 2/3 cup sugar

Yellow food coloring

Step 2: Prepare Lemon

With a fine grater, grate the peel off one lemon. Measure 1 Tablespoon lemon peel.

Cut lemon in half. With a citrus juicer, juice lemon or lemons to get 1/3 cup lemon juice.

Step 3: Mix Together Ingredients

In a large bowl, mix together 1 quart of yogurt, 1 Tablespoon lemon peel, 1/3 c. lemon juice, 1 2/3 c. sugar and 4 drops yellow food coloring.

Step 4: Now Freeze the Lemon Yogurt

Pour yogurt mixture into your ice cream freezer container and freeze it according to your freezer’s directions. In a pinch you can put your bowl of yogurt mixture in the freezer and stir it every 10-15 minutes until it’s frozen.

Step 5: Now for the Taste Test. YUM!

We like Lemon Frozen Yogurt right from the freezer while it’s still soft. You can also put it in a container and freeze it until you’re ready to eat it.

This is really yummy on a raspberry dessert.

However you eat it, you’ll be ready to make another batch in the not too distant future.

The recipe makes about 5 cups.
