Is This Frozen Yogurt Really Nonfat....mmmm?

Colombo yogurt mix 3If you have a soft serve ice cream / yogurt maker like the Cuisinart Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker and you prefer a smooth, sweet, "ice creamy" style frozen yogurt, you can't go wrong with the Colombo line of frozen yogurt mixes, like their Royal Raspberry Nonfat frozen yogurt mix. The taste is subtle raspberry and not tart in the least - more like a fine vanilla soft serve yogurt, rich and not too sweet.

cuisinart logoWhen we purchased the Cuisinart in the summer we tried a sampling of recipes that came with the machine, but non have come remotely close to the Colombo mix that we purchased. Preparation couldn't be easier...none of that pesky measuring or pre-mixing, all you have to do is defrost the mix for 36-72 hours in the fridge before use, shake well and pour into your yogurt maker and then wait while your machine does the churning and freezing, then dispense and enjoy.

I know what you must be thinking because I thought the same thing...you know, about it being December and not really a month when us here in North America crave the chilly attributes of frozen yogurt, but even though it's 52 outside it's 72 inside and why not enjoy a bit of summer in the first few days of winter?

But you deserve fair warning: Colombo yogurt mix isn't found in your grocery freezer case, nor is it found in your big box warehouse store. You'll have to order it from your local restaurant supply outlet, probably with a 1 case minimum. The case we purchased has 6-1/2 gallons containers and comes frozen. If stored frozen, they are good for 12 months, but I don't think they'll last that long around here.
