Raspberry Campari Frozen Yogurt

Raspberries aren't just sweet. They're tart, a little citrusy, and the seeds have a bitter bite—all nuances that get lost when you add them to dairy. But bittersweet Campari and aromatic orange zest bring all the raspberry's core raspberry-ness right to the front of this frozen yogurt, which is tangy and fruity on first bite with a little nip of bitterness as it melts on your tongue.

Why this recipe works:

  • Full-fat yogurt brings a balance of acidity, creaminess, and fruity flavor to the dessert.
  • Orange zest and Campari bring back raspberry's citrusy, bitter flavors that are lost when the fruit is combined with dairy.
  • The alcohol in the Campari makes this frozen yogurt especially soft and scoopable.
