  • 1 cup half and half
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 and ½ cups Greek Yogurt (regular plain yogurt will do in a pinch, but Greek yogurt has that "tangy" flavor)


  • Over medium heat in a small saucepan, combine the half and half and sugar, stirring constantly. Heat just until the sugar is completely disolved. (This should just take two or three minutes and the mixture should be warm but not hot.)
  • Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  • Whisk yogurt into the half and half.
  • Immediately pour into an ice cream maker (that has been prepared / frozen in advance according to the manufacturer's instructions).
  • Spin until the yogurt is smooth and creamy, about 25 minutes. Serve immediately, with your favorite toppings.


For a true frozen-yogurt consistency, this is best served straight out of the ice cream maker. It can be made in advance, but gets icy and firm the longer it is stored in the freezer. To expedite the process, make a big batch of the milk/sugar mixture and store it in the refrigerater for a few days, until ready to use.
