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 🙂 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. Toppings for this frozen yogurt recipe Sauces: chocolate, caramel, butterscotch, raspberry, strawberry, honey, and whipped cream Fruit: bananas, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, kiwis, mango, peaches, pineapple, and raspberries Chocolates: Brownie bites, chocolate sprinkles, Kit Kat pieces, Butterfinger pieces, toffee, mini m&ms, chocolate chips, Reese’s pieces, and snicker pieces Nuts: almonds, peanuts, pistachios, coconut Crunches: granola, cocoa pebbles, cinnamon toast crunch, captain crunch, and fruity pebbles Others: boba’s, gummy bears/worms, cookie dough, and cheesecake cubes Can you freeze yogurt and eat it like ice cream? Yes, it does get firmer the longer it sits in the freezer (after going through ice cream maker instructions). It won’t ever have the same consistency of ice cream though Is frozen yogurt healthy? I would categorize frozen yogurt as a treat! It’s certainly a more healthy treat alternative, but it still has a fair amount of sugar. When you’re choosing frozen yogurt over ice cream, you are getting a much healthier treat. Yogurt has protein, calcium, probiotics, and many other benefits.
