Frozen yogurt shops have expanded at an amazing pace across the country
And the number of Greek yogurt choices in grocery store dairy aisles have multiplied.
Now the freezer section is getting in on the trend.
We tried three brands of Greek frozen yogurt: Healthy Choice (raspberry), Ben and Jerry's (blueberry) and Lifeway (chocolate).
Each had a tangy flavor, which is what makes this yogurt desired over sweeter frozen yogurt that is similar to soft-serve ice cream.
All three passed as a sweet treat, but the textures were different. The Healthy Choice was more whipped, and the Ben and Jerry's was creamier.
The Lifeway was an interesting version of chocolate with fudge swirls. I might prefer a different flavor of this brand.
Greek yogurt contains more protein than traditional yogurt. It also has digestive system-friendly live, active cultures.
Most grocery stores carry Greek frozen yogurt in their freezer sections.
If you have an ice cream maker and would like to try making this at home, here is a recipe.
TANGY FROZEN GREEK YOGURT
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup water
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 cups plain whole-milk Greek-style yogurt
1 cup well-shaken buttermilk
5 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Equipment: an ice cream maker
1. Warm sugar, corn syrup, water and salt in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring, until sugar has dissolved. Transfer to a large bowl and cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally.
2. Whisk in yogurt, buttermilk and lemon juice and chill until very cold, 3 to 6 hours.
3. Freeze yogurt in ice cream maker. Transfer to an airtight container and put in freezer to firm up.
Note: Frozen yogurt keeps 1 week.
