Author Notes

The title basically describes what it is. It is a very refreshing take on a frozen yogurt, combining some great Summery flavors. This is what happens when you wander the produce aisle asking your best friend and random passersby what they think of this flavor with that flavor. You may get some strange looks, but the results are undeniable. ( You can use any ice cream or frozen yogurt base and achieve nearly the same results, I would imagine with some texture variation, but this is my basic mix, plus or minus a little.) —RandomShops
