Quick frozen yogurt from Sunset Magazine


In my “Big Clean” last week, I unearthed several recipes I had clipped and meant to try. One of them was from Sunset Magazine, make your own frozen yogurt. And in the back of my fridge was a container of Fage I bought at CostCo a couple weeks ago – perfect!

Frozen Yogurt

  • 1 32-ounce container plain nonfat yogurt
  • 2/3 – 3/4 cup sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)

Mix sugar into yogurt (put the yogurt into a bowl, it is much easier that way). Spoon mixture into ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. Serve immediately (much easier, and the consistency is better, IMHO)

30 minutes later, I was happily indulging in this healthy, fat-free frozen treat. Next time, I might go for a tarter yogurt, but the creamieness of the Fage worked well in the end product. Also, I would make this right before I want to eat it – I froze some for a snack later and it is now as hard as a rock.

As a long time subscriber to Sunset, I am thrilled to see that they are moving content online. For a long time, I have searched recipes through MyRecipes.com, which includes recipes from Sunset, Cooking Light and Real Simple. Now they have blogs! Here are the ones I just added to my reader:

  3. I have been a fan of Sunset Magazine since I was a teenager! Thanks for telling us that they now have more content online, other than just through myrecipes.com. I’m also thrilled to see that!
    I love to visit their garden too — and their chickens! 😉

  4. if you want to make some for later, use xanthan gum (you can get it at whole foods, andronico’s, etc)…it’s a miracle worker! here’s my full recipe, so you can get an idea for how much to use…but you could probably experiment, too. http://thisweekfordinner.com/2009/01/07/frozen-yogurt-redefinedand-in-my-own-kitchen/

    so glad sunset is moving more stuff online – love that magazine!
