I love frozen yogurt, and recently I went to my local Value Village and I found a Ice Cream maker for $8, yes that cheap and it’s a Cuisinart believe it or not! It works like a dream. I have been wanting an ice cream maker for ever, well ever since I got my kitchen aide mixer for Christmas a couple years ago. The attachment for the kitchen aide is more then $100 dollars and I hoed and hummed buying it forever, so when I saw this machine I think I did the I think I won the lottery dance in the isle at Value Village. ha-ha no really!!
I have made a few things in there now too and I freaking love it!!
On to the recipe and you DON’T need an ice cream make to make this either. All you need to do is place the finished product into and ice cream tray and then pop them into the freezer and then when you are craving some frozen yogurt you just take out about 3 cubes or more and place into your blender. And whola your ready to rock!!
no onto the goods!!
