peaches and cream frozen yogurt

Today was the first day of school, so we made frozen yogurt for an after school snack.  Making frozen yogurt with our Cuisinart Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker is easy and fast.  We always use Greek yogurt to make ours, as adding Greek yogurt to your diet provides an additional gram of protein over typical non-fat yogurt per ounce.  A 6-ounce serving of Greek yogurt has 15 grams of protein, which helps you feel full and satisfied.  Because of the way Greek yogurt is made, much of the natural sugar is removed, so it has half the sugar of unsweetened, non-fat American-style yogurt.  Greek yogurt is minimally processed and has not been heat-treated, which provides you with essential healthy bacteria that improve intestinal health and help to keep yeast at bay.
