Pineapple Frozen Yogurt

One of my all-time favorite food combinations is pineapple and yogurt. Preferably fresh pineapple and Greek-style yogurt. And it's a pretty healthy treat, right?

Of course, my next step was to put some machinery to use and change that simple treat into ... well, another simple treat. Pineapple frozen yogurt. There's no cooking required and not a lot of ingredients. If you've got the pineapple and the yogurt, I'll bet you have the rest.

For the yogurt, I used mostly Wallaby 0%, but didn't have quite enough, so the rest was 2%, Use whatever you have. But you do want a Greek-style yogurt, or it will end up too icy. As it is, it freezes pretty solid, but after a few minutes it warms up to a nice consistency.

Or just eat it right out of the machine, when it's a nice soft serve consistency.

I was playing photo lighting. I think I like this one.
2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
2 cups Greek-style yogurt
1/2 cup sugar
Pinch salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Put the pineapple in your blender and blend-blend-blend. Scrape the sides down. Blend again until it's smooth.

Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until it's all nicely mixed and as smooth as you can get it..

Dump the blender contents into your ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's directions. This is really nice straight out of the machine as a soft-serve dessert, or you can freeze it further.
