HOW TO MAKE FROZEN YOGURT:

  1. Mix ingredients together with a whisk in a large bowl. Place in a zip lock bag, getting all the air out. Place in freezer.
  2. Every hour, take the bag out and smush the ingredients with your hands, breaking up any icy bits. Keep doing this until the mixture is frozen. If it starts to get too cold or hard to break up the frozen parts, you can use a rolling pin to help.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS RECIPE:

Absolutely! Dive into the world of yogurt flavors available at your grocery store.

Whether it’s your favorite flavor from your local Menchies, the kind you grab from grocery stores, or a new instant delivery find, experimenting with different yogurt flavors, such as plain yogurt, strawberry, or even chocolatey love, can add a unique twist to your creamy treat.

The great thing about making this recipe is the freedom to customize it to match your taste buds perfectly.

Yes, indeed! Greek yogurt is a fantastic choice for making an even creamier produce than using regular yogurt.

Its thick, creamy texture, thanks to the presence of active yogurt cultures like S. thermophilus and L. bulgaricus, not only enhances the creamy treat experience but also contributes to a richer nutritional content.

So, whether you’re using whole-milk yogurt or opting for a lower-fat version, Greek yogurt can make your homemade version delightfully thick and irresistibly creamy.

Yes, you can add canned fruit, but ensure it’s well-drained to avoid adding excess water to your yogurt mixture.

If there is a lot of water, the freezing process will create a lot of ice crystals. That will make things less creamy.

Adding well-drained canned fruit, like peaches or pineapple, can introduce a yummy burst of flavor to your frozen treat.

For an added twist, why not sprinkle in some orange zest or mix in a spoonful of your favorite smoothie mixes for an extra flavor punch?

Just remember, whether you’re using fresh or canned fruit, to consider the added sugar content and adjust your recipe accordingly to maintain that perfect balance of sweetness in your creamy treat.

You don’t even need an ice cream maker for this one. Just whisk all these natural flavors together and toss it in the freezer!

  • Mix in fresh fruit like berries or diced mango for a fruity twist.
  • Add chocolate chips or cocoa powder for a chocolatey treat.
  • Stir in peanut butter or almond butter for a nutty flavor.
  • Sprinkle in some granola for a crunchy texture.
  • Swirl in some honey or maple syrup for added sweetness.
  • Include a dash of vanilla extract for enhanced flavor.
  • Add citrus zest, like lemon or orange, for a refreshing taste.
  • Combine with strawberry compote for a berry delicious variation.
  • Drop in some cookie crumbs for a fun twist.
  • Sprinkle with mini marshmallows or gummy bears for the kids (and the young at heart!).
  • Add some dark chocolate shavings on top for a fun twist.

If you like, you can add an emulsifier like guar gum to the recipe. It’s your yogurt recipe. Do what you like!

  • Replace sugar with stevia or monk fruit sweetener for a low-sugar alternative.
  • Exchange corn syrup with liquid sugar or simple syrup if needed.
