1.. Line a fine mesh strainer with 1 to 2 paper coffee filters and position it over a bowl. Fill the paper-lined strainer with the yogurt and drain in the refrigerator overnight.

2.. In a large bowl, whisk the strained yogurt, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, milk and vanilla together until the sugar has dissolved. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.

3.. Process in a Cuisinart® Ice Cream Maker according to the model’s
instructions. A few minutes before the frozen yogurt is finished, add the chopped pretzels into the churning yogurt to fully mix.

4.. The consistency will be soft and creamy, but if a firmer texture is desired, transfer the frozen yogurt to an airtight container and freeze for at least 2 hours. Remove from freezer 15 minutes before serving.
