Honey Yogurt Gelato

This is a delicious frozen yogurt that is quite tart. It's best eaten right out of the ice cream maker because the consistency is just perfect on the tongue. This yogurt is especially nice served with fresh, sweet fruits like apricots or peaches. I tore the recipe out of a magazine but unfortunately I'm not sure which magazine it was.
You can make a vegan version by using non-dairy yogurt, soy milk, and agave syrup or maple syrup.

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons low-fat milk
2 tablespoons clover honey
2 cups chilled plain yogurt
Generous pinch of fine sea salt

In a large heavy saucepan, combine milk and honey, warm over medium-low heat, whisking just until honey is dissolved, then transfer to a small metal bowl. Place bowl in larger bowl filled halfway with ice and water. Whisk milk mixture until it is cool to the touch, about 5 minutes. Remove bowl from ice water. In a large bowl, mix together milk mixture, yogurt, and salt. Freeze mixture in an ice cream maker. Serve immediately after ice cream maker is finished processing.

  1. Yogurt with honey is good, so this frozen version sounds good too!
