Cherry chocolate frozen yogurt – homemade version of Cherry Garcia

3 cups of Greek yogurt (full fat for best results)
1/4 cup half and half
1/3 cup sugar (can add more if you like sweeter)
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
3 cups frozen pitted cherries
1 tablespoon brandy
1/3 cup chocolate shavings
extra chocolate shavings to serve

Add first five ingredients (yogurt through cherries) in the order listed to your blender and puree until mixed. If you want cherry chunks in your end product, either save a few to chop and add after the pureeing, or make sure you stop the blender before the cherries are all chopped up. Transfer mixture to your ice cream machine, add brandy and process until almost done. A minute before the ice cream is the preferred consistency, add chocolate shavings. Transfer the frozen yogurt to your freezer and freeze for at least four hours or overnight. Serve with chocolate shavings on top.
