Frozen Yogurt Recipe

A few summers ago, we were at my sister-in-law’s house for a fun family get together. After dinner she made a mango frozen yogurt that we all went nuts over. It was honestly the best frozen yogurt I’ve ever had and the husband agreed.

He mentioned about five different times how we needed the recipe, needed an ice cream maker, and needed to make it often! We finally got an ice cream maker, and my sweet sister-in-law emailed us the recipe. We’ve made that frozen yogurt dozens of times and it’s quickly become our favorite!

With so few ingredients, you’ll want to make sure you have the best ingredients for optimal taste. Get a good yogurt that you know you’ll love. I recommend a high quality (full-fat) vanilla yogurt because it will make for a creamier and more flavorful yogurt. I also would stick with the heavy whipping cream to ensure that this yogurt sets up well.

And of course, the more fruit chunks to stir in the yogurt, the better. Or do chopped candy bars, cereal, and chopped fruit!

So….frozen yogurt; can you just put yogurt in the freezer? Not exactly! But it’s not that much harder ๐Ÿ™‚ 

How to make this frozen yogurt recipe

  • Blend: combine the yogurt, heavy cream, vanilla, and sugar and blend until it’s completely smooth.
  • Add: pour the entire mixture into a prepared ice cream maker and follow the directions to chill the yogurt
  • Serve or chill: from here, you can actually serve the yogurt (IMO at the perfect frozen yogurt consistency!) OR you can transfer to an airtight container and freeze to get a more solid ice-cream like consistency.
  • Add your favorites: whenever you’re ready to serve, make sure to serve it will your favorite chopped fruits, sauces, candies, etc.

  1. Frozen yogurt is a HUGE weakness for me. Let me loose in a froyo place and I`ll end up spending twenty dollars on my yogurt. This looks like it makes a lot for less which makes me happy camper. Can`t wait to try it.

  2. Now I need an ice cream maker! This sounds really good Chelsea (though I’d probably be stuffing it full of candy and cookies, destroying all the healthy aspects… I might have a problem).

  3. these frozen yogurt cups are SO pretty! I love the colors ๐Ÿ˜‰ and it’s totally acceptable to eat frozen foods in the winter! (I might be a lil guilty of drinking frozen fruit smoothies while sitting in front of the heater in the winter!) LOL… hope you have an awesome weekend girl!

  4. I love frozen yogurt … and I really love all that fresh fruit you topped that with! Which means I can eat this for breakfast right??? ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great weekend!!

  5. 5 stars
    I find myself at a fro-yo bar most weeks- its a bad habit of mine for sure! I just love it! can’t wait to try this so I can get my fro-yo fix at home (and probably save some $$) lol!
