Homemade Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Here I go again – giving my ice  cream maker a workout in one of the coldest months of the year.  I had a few items in my fridge that were rapidly approaching their “best if used by” date.  So, I once again turned to a creamy, frozen treat in spite piles of drifted snow staring at me through my kitchen window.  But, sincem y last post was all about rich and decadent homemade ice cream, I decided to lighten things up a bit and make some frozen yogurt.  The method is almost exactly the same as ice cream and the results are just as delicious!
