This is the perfect recipe if you want to impress someone special! I made this for my wife and she loved it. It was the perfect dessert following a great steak dinner. Very flavorful.

Frozen yogurt is so good, and this one is a solid recipe. The basil steeped in agave brings a nice flavor for a sweet syrup, and then tart yogurt balances out that sweetness from the agave and strawberries. Really nice.
