Combine yogurt and honey in a bowl. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean half; add seeds to yogurt mixture. Pour mixture into a gallon-sized zip-top plastic bag. Lay bag flat, spreading mixture into an even layer and pressing to eliminate air pockets. Seal tightly; lay flat in freezer. Freeze 3 to 4 hours or until almost firm. Break mixture into small pieces, and place in the bowl of a food processor; add half-and-half. Process until very smooth. Pour mixture into an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan; cover surface with plastic wrap. Freeze 1 to 2 hours or until firm but scoopable. Serve immediately.

This was really good. I served it like soft serve ice cream right out of the cuisinart, With berries and a few almonds. The good thing, you know the ingredients and if you are watching your diet it's 1/2 the calories of Hagen dasz vanilla yogurt. I used vanilla extract instead of the bean. Reminded me of the "simply tart " flavor that Golden spoon sometimes has.
I tried this recipes 2 ways: with & without an ice-cream maker. It came out better using the maker. The flavor is subtly sweet. If you're ok with a little tang, this is a great fro yo! Stir-ins could also work well
