  • 3 cups 2% plain Greek-style yogurt
  • ½ cup Sugar
  • ½ cup Light corn syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. Vanilla extract
  • 2 cups Pitted and chopped fresh sweet cherries


  • 1 Bottle root beer (12 oz.)
  • ¼ cup Sugar


  • Whisk together yogurt, sugar, corn syrup, and vanilla in a large glass measuring cup until sugar dissolves. Chill yogurt mixture at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours.
  • Pour yogurt mixture into the chilled canister of an ice cream machine and freeze according to the manufacturer's directions. When yogurt is thick and nearly churned, add the chopped cherries. Transfer frozen yogurt to an airtight freezer-safe container; freeze until solid.
  • Stir together root beer and sugar for the syrup in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until reduced to a syrupy consistency, about 25 minutes. (You should have about 1/2 cup syrup.) Chill syrup until ready to serve.
  • Thaw frozen yogurt at room temperature 10–15 minutes for easier scooping. To serve, scoop 1/2 cup frozen yogurt into each sundae glass. Drizzle 1 Tbsp. syrup over each serving.
