Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt

There are so many fancy ice cream and frozen yogurt flavors out there like red velvet, butter pecan , cherry Garcia, brownie fudge, and chocolate chip cookie dough . The list is endless. While all of these flavors are delicious, you simply cannot beat a bowl of classic vanilla bean ice cream. It just does not get better than this on a toasty day by the pool. Now you can make this yogurt at home yourself with little stress and a whole lot of benefits. (A recognizable ingredient list for one.) Enjoy!

Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt
3 ¼ cups plain Greek yogurt
2 cups milk
1 cup agave nectar or honey
dash of salt
2 tbsp vanilla extract
1 vanilla bean

Cut the vanilla bean in half and scrape out the insides. Combine all the ingredients into a blender and blend until well incorporated. Refrigerate for 3 hours. Using an ice cream machine (mine is a Cuisinart), pour your frozen yogurt base into the machine while it is running. I had to make it in two batches, using half the yogurt mixture each time. Run the machine for 15 minutes. Once the yogurt has been churned, enjoy immediately as soft serve, or freeze for 3 hours to make it real frozen yogurt.
