Strawberry Banana Yogurt Ice Cream

I say "yogurt" ice cream because I added yogurt to my basic ice cream mixture so it is not really frozen yogurt.  I am not a fan of frozen yogurt but I like the taste and texture it gives to my ice cream. I have another secret ingredient added to this ice cream.  I tasted the mixture before I put it in my ice cream maker and the strawberry banana flavor was not very strong.  I was also getting ready to make a strawberry banana sunsational cake and it calls for a package of jello.  So I decided to take 2 t of the strawberry banana jello and add it to my ice cream.  The jello really made the flavor pop.  It also helped the color of the ice cream turn a more pink color.

2 C whipping Cream
2 C half and half
3/4 C sugar
1 T vanilla
2 T strawberry banana jello (powder, right out of the box)
2  5.3 oz Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt

Mix the sugar and half and half together.  Add the cream and vanilla.  Whisk in the yogurt and jello.  Pour into your ice cream maker and freeze according to your makers directions.  Mine was soft even after it quit churning.  I put it in an air tight container and placed it in the freezer for 4 hours or overnight.
