I liked this recipe... I only changed a few things. Only added half the mount of greek yogurt and instead of adding sugar I replaced it for half a cup of low fat vanilla yogurt, and used soy milk. the recipe still had the same thickness as the original but with less fat.

Good recipe but very yogurty. Also suffers from using low fat/fat free ingredients. I would reduce the yogurt to one cup only and use regular yogurt & milk. With those changes it's very yummy.
