Frozen yogurt made with fresh fruit is a healthy, delicious, low-fat, low-sugar alternative to ice cream
in hot weather or year 'round. When fruit is not in season, you can substitute fresh fruit with frozen berries
and frozen fruit. Just be sure you choose frozen fruit and berries that have no added sweeteners,
including sugar, corn syrup, and high-fructose corn syrup!
