Frozen yoghurt that tastes like ice cream?

So a while back I ate some frozen yogurt somewhere (cant remember where) which tasted less like yogurt and more like ice cream. However whenever I try to make frozen yogurt at home, it always tastes 'yogurty', and tangy. Does anyone know how I can make non-tangy frozen yogurt? Are there any 'flavourless' brands of yogurt that do not taste of much so I can add my own flavour?

If not, is there anything I can do to the yogurt itself to get rid of the tanginess? Eating ice cream is not much of a option for me at the minute so I would love to be able to make some ice-cream tasting frozen yogurt.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I'm a Brit too so I'll see if I can help. I make my own yoghourt as I find the stuff you buy is too bland, i.e. less tangy, so I don't think making your own flavourless yoghurt is the answer. You can find "natural" ie unsweetened, unflavoured, yoghourt in most supermarkets. I find the mass produced makes are more bland, than the organic brands such as Rachel's or Yeo.

Possibly an answer to tanginess is sugar but I expect you are avoiding that too. Slimming World suggests you sweeten it with artificial sweeteners but they can be a bit yuck.

I think that the problem is that yoghourt is tangy by definition and the professional frozen yoghourt makers have chemicals and "e-numbers" to get round this that the home cook doesn't have access to.
