It’s time to add a fruity yogurt to our collection of frozen yogurts — this vanilla Frozen Yogurt Recipe and Chocolate Frozen Yogurt

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt is tart, sweet, and totally addictive — it’s hard to stop at just one bowl! It’s also very easy to make, especially if you have a blender and ice cream maker — with those two appliances, most of the work is pretty hands off. 

Below I’ll break down the ingredients in this recipe and give some ideas for how to top your finished fro-yo. Enjoy!

Ingredients for Strawberry Frozen Yogurt.

Ingredients

With so few ingredients in this Strawberry Frozen Yogurt, every ingredient counts! Here are my recommendations and notes about particular ingredients.

  • Yogurt. Pick a good vanilla bean yogurt that you enjoy eating plain (if you don’t like it plain, you won’t love this frozen yogurt!). I don’t recommend a low-fat or fat-free yogurt as they won’t thicken the same. We’ve tried a lot of different yogurts and hands down our favorite (and what we continue to use in this recipe) is Noosa® vanilla bean yogurt. 
  • Heavy whipping cream. While it may seem like milk would be a good substitute, it doesn’t interchange well on this recipe. We need heavy cream to ensure the proper thickness.
  • Frozen strawberries. Frozen strawberries work best, as they keep the mixture really cold so it freezes faster when added to the ice cream maker. Fresh strawberries will also work, but if you can, use frozen berries.
  • Lemon. The small amount of lemon juice balances the sweetness with a little tartness and accentuates the strawberry flavor.
  • Vanilla extract and salt. These two ingredients add a depth of flavor and work to balance sweetness with tang. A little salt goes a long way and ensures this yogurt has a more robust, balanced flavor.
  • White sugar. If you’d like a tart yogurt, slightly reduce the amount of sugar. For a sweeter yogurt, add a bit more sugar. You may also need to increase (or decrease) the amount of sugar, depending on how sweet the yogurt and strawberries you are using. Add sugar gradually, tasting the mixture before adding it to the ice cream maker.

So we’ve got the base ingredients that make up the strawberry frozen yogurt, and after that, it’s all about the toppings!

Toppings for this frozen yogurt recipe

  • Sauces: Try raspberry syrup, strawberry syrup, a drizzle of honey or agave nectar, whipped cream.
  • Fruit: Bananas, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, mango, pineapple all work!
  • Crunches: Add granola, Fruity Pebbles®, Captain Crunch® cereal.
  • Others: Coconut flakes, cheesecake cubes, sprinkles, white chocolate chips add special touches.

QUICK TIP

If you’re adding frozen fruit, dice it finely and stir it into the ice cream maker once the yogurt is fairly firmed up — this helps integrate the fruit nicely into the yogurt.

Ice Cream Maker

  • For this recipe, you’ll need an ice cream maker. Here’s the one I use and love. 
  • If you’re determined to try this recipe without an ice cream maker, here’s the method for that. The consistency isn’t quite the same, and it’s a lot of extra work, but you’ll arrive at a similar outcome.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups (35 oz.; 998g) high-quality full-fat vanilla bean yogurt  (We love Noosa vanilla bean yogurt best) Note 1
  • 1 cup (235g) heavy whipping cream
  • 2/3 cup (150g) white granulated sugar
  • 3-1/2 cups (15.25 oz; 430g) frozen strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • Tiny pinch of fine sea salt
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Optional: any desired fro-yo toppings of choice (like fresh fruit, granola, coconut, etc.)

Instructions

  • BLEND: In a large blender jar (or in batches), add in all the ingredients (excluding the optional toppings) in the order they're listed. Blend until completely combined and smooth.
  • ICE CREAM MAKER: Pour the mixture into a prepared ice cream maker and follow manufacturer directions to chill the yogurt to desired consistency. Plan on about 30 minutes to an hour to get a good fro-yo consistency.
  • ENJOY: Once frozen, transfer the mixture into a resealable container and freeze until hard-- about 4-6 hours, or eat right out of the ice cream maker (this is our favorite way to enjoy it; this soft consistency is our favorite!) Top with any desired toppings and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Note 1:  If not using this brand of yogurt, you may want to add more sweetener. This yogurt is very flavorful and fairly sweet. I recommend using a full-fat yogurt you think tastes great straight from the container; otherwise, you likely won't end up loving this frozen yogurt recipe.
