Raspberry Frozen Yogurt

several years ago, i convinced a bartender at the cheesecake factory to give me the recipe for their raspberry martini. what makes it so amazing is they use real raspberry puree (among other things - like vodka). i searched the internet and found perfect puree. it was quite pricy but it comes frozen and i ended up getting 3 bottles because it was the same price to ship 3 as it was 1. i have since taken them from house to house. i still have one and a half bottles left. for a long time i felt like i had to save them but life is too short to not enjoy the fine things in life (like martinis). when opening our spare freezer today, i spied them and knew i had to make raspberry frozen yogurt. using the frozen raspberry puree saved me tons of time because it is seedless!
not only is it pure gorgeous raspberries but it's also wonderfully delicious. they add just enough sugar to make it sweet which means i didn't even need to add sugar to the frozen yogurt. so, just raspberry puree and greek yogurt went into the ice cream maker. 20 minutes later i snuck a taste and it was like a spoonful of summer.
i used this same recipe for my blueberry frozen yogurt. it really works with every fruit and i cannot wait to use peaches. i even have this for breakfast. shhhh, don't tell anyone:)

Raspberry Frozen Yogurt

1 cup raspberry puree (or fresh raspberries blended with 1 tbs of lemon juice and 1/4 cup of agave nectar)
2 cups of greek yogurt (i used fage total)

whisk ingredients together and pour into ice cream maker. follow manufacturers instructions to make ice cream. put in freezer and allow to set for 1-2 hours.
