Frozen Yogurt with Strawberries and Tarragon Leaves

My partner's doctor said all that ice cream would give him another heart attack.  So I immediately started making frozen yogurt.  I used 1 cup greek krema yogurt, it's about 9% Milk Fat to 2 cups 1% milk.  A teaspoon of vanilla and 3/4 cup sugar.  We use 1% milk so overall the fat is about the same as whole milk. That makes a nice smooth frozen mixture that has a little tang but tastes good. For a fruity version use 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/4 cup fruit.  Use the immersion blender or food processor to fully macerate the fruit.  If you have little pieces of strawberry for example, they become frozen rocks, not fun to eat.

Shown is Vanilla frozen yogurt with fresh strawberries tossed in icing sugar.  A few leaves of licorice flavored tarragon makes a tasty contrasting garnish.
