I have a sweet tooth, but this was much too sweet for me. I would recommend halving the amount of honey used or nixing it altogether.

Sorry you found it too sweet! It is about the sweetness of ice cream (when I crave ice cream for breakfast, I guess I go ahead and make ice cream for breakfast!). The tricky thing with ice cream and frozen yogurt is you can't necessarily just reduce the amount of sweetener to taste because the sweetening agent is an important part of what keeps it from freezing too solid. That's the main reason I used 1/3 cup honey. You could probably get away with reducing it to 1/4 cup, but any lower and I would guess your frozen yogurt would freeze too solid to scoop - which is ok if you have 15-30 minutes to set it out and soften it, but I really wanted mine to stay scoopable when frozen. One option for reducing the sweetness would be to fold the yogurt with unsweetened fruit, rather than the fruit sauce. The chunks of fruit would freeze more solid than the fruit swirl (again because it's the sweetener that keeps it from freezing too hard), but I think this would be less difficult to eat than super hard frozen yogurt.

Any advice if you don't own an ice cream maker?
Here are some good instructions for making ice cream without an ice cream maker. They work pretty well! http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2007/07/making-ice-crea-1/
