Raspberry Swirl Frozen Yogurt

I figured it was about time to try my hand with making frozen yogurt.  I found this recipe in an issue of Health magazine.  I think any berry could be used will have to try using strawberries or blackberries next time.

4 c. plain whole or reduced fat Greek yogurt
1 c. sugar, divided
2 tbsp. vodka
1 c. frozen raspberries, thawed

In a large bowl, stir together yogurt, 3/4 c. sugar, and vodka until sugar dissolves.

Pour into the freezer can of an ice cream  maker; freeze according to to the manufacturer's instructions.
In a medium bowl, mash together raspberries and remaining 1/4 c. sugar.

Swirl mixer into frozen yogurt; spoon yogurt into a metal loaf pan.

Cover and freeze for 1 hour or until firm.  To serve, leave yogurt at room temperature to soften slightly before scooping.

This turned out really great.  And yes I did have an issue with the whole swirl concept but that is okay because it tastes great.
