3 Ingredient Frozen Yogurt

in Frozen Yogurt Recipes

It’s summertime and we’ve been making lots of frozen yogurt. The grocery store ice cream section is awfully tempting with their array of Popsicles and ice creams, but we’ve found a healthier alternative.

Our homemade frozen yogurt has probiotics in it.  It also contains less sugar and doesn’t contain any artificial coloring, preservatives or other weird stuff.

So, if you want to try it, just skip the ice cream section and go to the frozen fruit section.  Get some frozen blueberries, raspberries, cherries or whatever suits your fancy.

Ingredients:

  • Frozen fruit or berries (we used cherries)
  • Plain whole milk yogurt
  • Sugar (white sugar, stevia or other sugar substitute)

For supplies, you’ll need: a frozen yogurt maker, a food processor and a way to strain your yogurt.  You will need to strain the yogurt for about 2-4 hours.  We like to use coffee filters lining a mesh strainer.  We just grab a big bowl, set the mesh strainer on it and line it with coffee filters.  Then we pour the yogurt in and set it in the fridge.   It’s also fine on the counter top for a couple of hours.  The strained yogurt should be about the consistency of Greek yogurt.  The idea is just to remove some of the whey to make the yogurt creamier and less tart.

Next, process the frozen fruit with sugar in the food processor.  Once it’s all chopped up and blended put it in a bowl with the strained yogurt and mix it all together.  Freeze the mixture in the frozen yogurt machine for about 10 minutes.

The frozen yogurt will be about the consistency of soft serve.  If you want it harder like ice cream, place it in the freezer for a few hours.

    This looks really good! I’m going to try it with blueberries.

    Any suggestions about amounts? This is like one of my grandmother’s recipes–”some” of this and “some” of that…which worked great for Grandma, but I’m a bit timid/recipe bound and would appreciate at least some approximations to get me started.
    Looks good! I have some of last summer’s blueberries in the freezer which I know would love to become the star of frozen yogurt.

    • I’m like your grandmother. I love doing the taste tests until it seems right. But here’s some info. to give you a general idea. I used 2 cups yogurt, 1 bag sweet dark cherries and about 3/4 cup sugar. I would use a bit more sugar for blueberries though. I always do a taste taste and make it a bit sweeter than I want the finished yogurt to be, since frozen food seems less sweet.

    can’t u just freeze after mixed tog ether, why yogurt freezer needed?

    • I get better results using a frozen yogurt maker/ice cream maker. But if you don’t have one, it also works fine to stir the mixture every hour or so while freezing.
