machine à yogourt glacé

I don't know who your target audience is but...

In Canada, the French word for "frozen yogourt" is "yogourt glacé". It is creamier than sorbets.

Click on the first link below for a picture and description of the household machine.
"Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt Maker. Machine à yogourt glacé"

The second link describes the industrial machine. The frozen yogurt from these types of machines is very, very creamy, similar to soft ice cream. It is usually mixed with fruit and processed in the machine to make a soft frozen yogurt.
"Machine de comptoir pour la production et la distribution, simple ou combinée, de yogourt-glacé, de glace-soft, de sorbets et desserts"

Yogen Fruz is a popular frozen yogurt chain. This link will give you a picture of what the frozen yogurt looks like (the white cups 2nd and 3rd from the right): http://www.exclusave.com/yognfruz.html
