Recipe for Vanilla Frozen Yogurt with Raspberry Swirl

I can make it with fresh organic berries.

You could drive 12 miles to get it: 24 miles round trip.

I could have done it, but I didn't.

Instead, I had my own Trader Joe's moment: organic raspberry cream and raspberry wine; They are both in the refrigerator, both cold.

It only takes 5 minutes to assemble, plus 20 minutes to freeze.

It could end up on your dessert plates tonight. . .

Vanilla frozen yogurt with raspberry sauce
Cristina's original recipe.
4 cups full-fat organic yogurt (low-fat is also possible)
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/3 to 1/2 cup sugar (or 8 to 12 packets of Splenda)
4 ounces raspberries
2 tablespoons raspberry wine

Combine yogurt, vanilla, and sugar in a large bowl, stirring until sugar dissolves. Keep very cold until ready to freeze.
Combine raspberry wine and raspberries in a small measuring cup. Cover and refrigerate.
Freeze the yogurt mixture in a refrigerator according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Once the yogurt has set, place one-third in a freezer-safe container, then pour in half of the berry mixture, then pour one-third of the yogurt over the berry layer and repeat with the rest of the berry mixture. on. . Top with the last third of yogurt.
Cut the yogurt several times with a knife. Smooth the top.
Cover the yogurt with a piece of plastic wrap to prevent ice crystals from forming, then cover and freeze for a few hours until the yogurt is ready to serve. It may rise overnight, but if it does, take it out and leave it on the counter for half an hour before serving until it softens.

I love frozen yogurt on cake. If you like it sweeter, add up to 2/3 cup sugar.
I find using full-fat yogurt works best for a creamy consistency, but low-fat or low-fat yogurt will also work, although it will freeze.
As you can see in my other frozen yogurt posts, I usually strain the whey from the yogurt before making the recipe. I decided not to do it here and see what happens. All went well. Maybe not as generous, but still good.
The Trader Joe's link in this post is not an advertisement and I receive no compensation for it; It's there so you can see what the product looks like. Sorry, I couldn't find a photo of the raspberry wine, but TG's sells it under their own label for about $8 a bottle.
