I used 2% yogurt in the recipe - if you want to go full-fat, go right ahead! I wouldn't recommend using non-fat; even with the help of the half & half and bourbon, it's pretty impossible to scoop after freezing. —Kitchenette

What about subbing honey for the maple syrup? Honey and lavender is soooo heavenly. Really glad to see this as a frozen yogurt, thanks!
