We modified this recipe from www.101cookbooks.com, which was adapted from "The Perfect Scoop" by David Lebovitz.

To make 3 cups of strained yogurt: Line a bowl with a fine-mesh strainer. Tip 6 cups of plain whole-milk yogurt into the strainer. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours or until thick. Or use Greek-style yogurt.

3 cups strained whole-milk yogurt or Greek-style yogurt
1/3 cup sugar
Flavorings (see below)
1. In a large bowl, mix together the yogurt and sugar. Add flavorings, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour.

2. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to freeze the yogurt mixture in an ice cream maker until it is firm.

STRAWBERRY YOGURT

Puree 4 cups of fresh, hulled strawberries in a food processor and strain to remove seeds. Stir puree (about 2 cups) into yogurt mixture.

LEMON AND HONEY YOGURT

Substitute 1/3 cup honey for the sugar listed above. Stir into yogurt. Add 1/4 cup lemon juice and 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind. Garnish with chopped lemon verbena leaves.

MINT-GINGER YOGURT

Mix together 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint, 1/2 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir into the yogurt mixture.

KESAR-PISTA YOGURT (SAFFRON, CARDAMOM AND PISTACHIO)

Mix together 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom, 10 chopped or crushed saffron threads, 1/3 cup coarsely chopped pistachios. Stir into the yogurt mixture. Cover and refrigerate, stirring occasionally, at least 5 hours so the saffron flavor permeates the yogurt. Mara Zepeda
