MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 6, 2012

The taste was wonderful. I think the problem with the machines getting bogged down, is that the basil and lemon peel froze solid to the paddles early on. Next time I am going to try it without those ingrediants, until near the end. This recipe definitely tasted more "lemony and basily" the next day.

Very tasty, but was so think my machine could not churn it. We ended up freezing the mess and just taking out chunks to enjoy.

gotta wonder if this bonnielynn lady is related to the recipe provider. I had the same problem Lenny848 did but finally got to the recipe. Not disgusting but I would not make it again. And..."froyo" rates right up there with mani pedi, sammi, veggie and EVOO for annoyance factors. Are you 12?

I would probably try this recipe if I could read it before rating it. I've tried to read the recipe 4 times but as soon as I scroll to the ingredients, I get sent to this page. Very upsetting if you want to try a recipe.

This is the best frozen yogurt ever! If you like basil and lemon, you will love this dish. Warning - it's addictive!
