 Fresh Raspberry Frozen Greek Gogurt

Today I made fresh raspberry frozen greek yogurt.  It is soooo simple.! Take a small carton (maybe 1/4 pint) of fresh raspberries and put them in the food processor with about 3/4 cup sugar.  You can use splenda if you would rather but I don't have that measurement. Whirl those together until pureed.  Then put about 3 cups of non-fat greek yogurt. ( You won't believe how creamy something non-fat can be!) Put this in with the raspberry mixture and whirl it all together (love that word whirl!) . Taste to see if it is sweet enough for you.  There is always a little tanginess with greek yogurt.  Then put it all in the Cuisinart ice cream maker and turn it on!  In about 10 minutes you will have a luscious treat!!! Enjoy!!

Boil all these together til soft crackle ball stage. Take pan off heat and add 3/4 teaspoon vanilla. Pour over 3 quarts popped corn in a large bowl. While it cools a little, butter your hands. Carefully grab handful and squeeze to make balls. and put on waxed paper.  Sometimes it does not hang together too well so if not just enjoy caramel corn!!
