QUICK TIPFor this frozen yogurt recipe, you’ll need an ice cream maker. Here’s the one I use and love. 4 Simple Ingredients To create the perfect homemade frozen yogurt with an ice cream maker, you’ll need top-notch ingredients: Yogurt: Opt for high-quality vanilla bean yogurt that you enjoy plain. We recommend avoiding low-fat or fat-free varieties, as they won’t provide the desired thickness. Our favorite choice is Noosa® vanilla bean yogurt. Heavy whipping cream: Unlike milk, heavy cream is crucial for achieving the ideal texture. Vanilla and salt: Vanilla and salt enhance flavor, balance sweetness, and add depth. A touch of salt may seem unusual, but it elevates the taste. You can use vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract; learn more about their differences here. Sugar: Sugar adds sweetness, and you can adjust the quantity to your liking. Decrease for a tangier flavor or increase for more sweetness, depending on your yogurt’s inherent sweetness. How To Make This Frozen Yogurt Recipe Blend the first five ingredients in a blender until well combined. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions to chill it to your desired consistency. Enjoy it immediately with your favorite toppings or freeze it in an airtight container for a firmer texture later. Toppings For Frozen Yogurt Sauces: Try hot fudge sauce, caramel sauce, butterscotch sauce, blueberry syrup, raspberry syrup, strawberry syrup, a drizzle of honey, and whipped cream Fruit: Choose from bananas, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, kiwis, mango, peaches, pineapple, or raspberries Chocolates: Brownie bites, chocolate sprinkles, Kit Kat® pieces, Butterfinger® pieces, toffee, mini M&Ms®, chocolate chips, Reese’s® pieces, Snickers® pieces, edible brownie batter Nuts: Almonds, peanuts, pistachios, walnuts, cashews, and candied pecans are great choices Crunches: Granola, Cocoa Pebbles®, Cinnamon Toast Crunch®, Captain Crunch®, Fruity Pebbles®, buncha crunch Others: Boba’s®, gummy bears/worms, edible cookie dough, coconut flakes, cheesecake cubes Frozen Yogurt Recipe FAQs1Can I Just Freeze Yogurt To Make Frozen Yogurt?Freezing yogurt alone won’t make frozen yogurt. The recipe combines yogurt with heavy whipping cream, sugar, vanilla, and salt, followed by churning in an ice cream maker. This process adds air and creates a creamy, smooth texture, unlike freezing plain yogurt. 2Is Frozen Yogurt Better For You Than Ice Cream?Frozen yogurt is frequently hailed as a healthier option compared to ice cream, thanks to its reduced fat content and potential probiotic advantages. With just four simple ingredients, this recipe provides a fantastic alternative for those seeking a treat without a laundry list of unfamiliar components. 3How Do You Thaw Frozen Yogurt?Store leftovers in single-serving containers in the freezer with some room for expansion. When you’re ready to enjoy them, let the frozen yogurt sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes until it reaches your desired consistency. Give it a quick stir, and it’s ready to enjoy!
