  • 1 cup (235g) heavy cream
  • 4 cups (35 oz.; 998g) high-quality full-fat vanilla bean yogurt (We love Noosa vanilla bean yogurt best) Note 1
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla bean paste (OR 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract)
  • 1 cup (200g) white sugar Note 2
  • Very tiny pinch of fine sea salt, optional
  • Toppings such as fresh fruit, chopped candy/cookies, cereal, etc.


  • BLEND: In a large blender jar (or in batches), add in the first five ingredients in the order they're listed. Blend until completely combined.
  • ICE CREAM MAKER: Pour the mixture into a prepared ice cream maker and follow manufacturer directions to chill the yogurt to desired consistency. Aim for about 30 minutes to an hour to get good fro-yo consistency.
  • ENJOY: Once it is done, enjoy immediately straight out of the ice cream maker plain or with desired toppings (like fresh fruit, chopped candy, edible cookie dough, etc.). Alternatively, transfer the mixture to an airtight container and freeze until more solid.


Note 1: Yogurt sweetness varies by brand. The yogurt we use is very flavorful and fairly sweetened. I recommend using a full-fat yogurt you like straight from the container; otherwise, you likely won't end up loving this frozen yogurt recipe.
Note 2: Reduce sugar by up to 1/3 cup for a more tart frozen yogurt.
