Tuesday Recipe: Strawberry Greek Frozen Yogurt

Our recipes have been a little sweet-tooth heavy, and although this week’s treat may be sweet, it has three [healthy] ingredients that will make you feel good about indulging. You do need an ice cream maker, but it doesn’t have to be state-of-the-art, and just think – you’ll be able to make frozen treats all summer long! We hope you enjoy this strawberry Greek frozen yogurt, and we’ll see you next week for a 4th of July recipe!
