Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Last week in Nashville had some record breaking heat. It was too hot to even make ice cream. That is how unbelievably hot it was. So instead, I decided to make some frozen yogurt. No heating involved. All you have to do is let the berries, sugar, and some vodka do their thing and mix in some lemon and yogurt and let it spin in the ice cream machine. So simple. And delicious. This frozen yogurt has that hint of tang from the yogurt, but the strawberry flavor comes through so clear that it almost tastes like a sorbet. I'll soon by trying this technique with some other fruits.

Adapted from The Perfect Scoop

1 lb fresh strawberries, rinsed and stems removed
2/3 cup sugar
2 tsp. vodka (I used vanilla vodka) (optional)
1 cup plain yogurt
1 tsp. lemon juice

1) Slice the strawberries into tiny pieces and combine with the sugar and vodka and let sit for 1 hour, stirring occasionally

2) Puree the strawberries, in their juices, in a food processor with the yogurt and lemon juice until smooth. You can strain out the seeds, but I like the texture they add
3) Refrigerate until cold, then add to machine, freeze in freezer and enjoy!
