Semi Fro-yo

This make-ahead no-churn ice cream recipe uses yogurt and is similar in texture to a semifreddo, making it a perfectly easy and healthy summer ice cream alternative. Our version is flavored with fresh local elderberry syrup. You can replace the yogurt with whipped cream and add any fruits, veggies, nuts, or other solids to the mix right before freezing.
