Frozen Yogurt Machines (and Two Lip Smacking Recipes)

Along with the current state of affairs with people trying to diet and lose weight, one of the most delightful desserts comes from Frozen Yogurt Machines. This soft dessert can be substituted for the heavier ice creams that we talked about in ice cream freezers.

Frozen yogurts can be made with a variety of flavors much like ice cream but made with ingredients that are lower in fat content, and therefore fewer calories.

The frozen yogurt machines come in a variety of shapes, sizes and prices. One of the nice things about these machines is that they are designed for the counter top, rather than the back yard like the ice cream freezer.

You can set up the yogurt to be pure indulgence with flavors that explode on your tongue. The frozen yogurt is ready in a relative short period of time, in other words, it does not take a ton of time to make it. The results can be healthy for you and for children, since you reduce the amount of sugar and fat in the end result.

The following are a few of our favorite recipes:
