i was searching for a good
frozen greek yogurt recipe.

3 5.3oz containers of dannon oikos greek yogurt
*i used 1 plain and 2 strawberry
3 tbsp light corn syrup
3 tbsp sugar
2/3 cup half and half
2/3 cup whipping cream

mix all ingredients with a whisk
until smooth and combined well.
place in ice cream maker and
follow makers directions.
