Hey Nan! Ditto to what HalfPint said. The sugar doesn't just make the frozen yogurt sweet—it makes it smooth and creamy too. You might be able to cut back by a couple tablespoons, but I wouldn't recommend much more than that.

Sugar affects the size of the ice crystals in cream, making them smaller. This results in a smooth consistency and texture. If you cut back on the sugar, the ice crystals will be larger and frozen yogurt will be icy and chunky.
