take that pinkberry

had a craving for some yummy frozen yogurt with fresh fruit, a la pinkberry, but didn't really feel like taking out a second on my house. so, ice cream maker? check. quart of trader joe's non-fat yogurt? check. cup of sugar? check. mixed up the yogurt and the sugar and froze it up in the ice cream maker, then "decanted" into a container for a few more hours in the freezer. a few hours later, busted out a pint of voila! cold, creamy, sweet and tangy. really hits the spot on a warm summer evening. good and good for you, with all those antioxidants in the blueberries and calcium in the yogurt. and at about 150 calories and no fat per 1/2 cup serving, not too shabby for the ol' diet, either. i think you could even stand to cut the sugar (maybe up to 1/2) and it would still taste good. take that, pinkberry.

Looks yummy. Did you add anything such as vanilla. This looks too easy. We have no Pinkberry or Red Mango here but I've read about them I guess they are quite expensive.
