frozen strawberry almond yogurt

For years I have used my ice cream machine for making only ice cream.  However, it is capable of making many other products. A few days ago, I made homemade strawberry yogurt for the first time.  I adapted a recipe for blueberry and basil yogurt, changing the fruit ingredients, as my husband is not a fan of blueberries.

This is a very good basic recipe and is very tasty.  It can be made as easily as my basic ice cream recipe, but also requires a chill time of several hours.  We usually freeze our homemade treats overnight.

Gather these ingredients to get started:  3 containers of Greek style vanilla yogurt, 2 cups half and half, 2/3 cup sugar, 1/3 cup light corn syrup, 1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract, and 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt.  Other flavors could be substituted; I used almond for this recipe, but the original recipe used vanilla extract.

Whisk the ingredients together until the sugar is dissolved.  Add mashed fruit, about 1 1/2 cups maximum.  Pour into the ice cream maker and process for 20-22 minutes.  Store in freezer several hours before serving.  This recipe makes another great summer dessert.
