    I just made this and LOVED It!! I didnt have enough yogurt so I added some almond milk to get it to mix…Still enjoyed it and will make it again!

  2. I freeze the yogurt and used frozen mixed berries and used 1 teaspoon of Splenda instead of sugar. As usual I loved this recipe and it tastes just great.
