  • Add the plain greek yogurt, frozen strawberries (or other frozen fruit), maple syrup, and vanilla extract to your food processor.
  • Pulse and blend until a thick "froyo" texture is formed. This can take a couple minutes, and you may need to push the mixture down occasionally. Adjust sweetness (maple syrup) to taste.
  • Serve and enjoy right away for a more soft-serve like texture. Alternatively, transfer to a loaf pan and pop it in the freezer for about 30 minutes if you want it a little more firm!


*LEFTOVERS: can be kept in a freezer-safe, airtight container in the freezer for up to a month. Once stored in the freezer, this homemade froyo will solidify quite a bit. Be sure to remove it from your freezer AT LEAST 30 minutes before you want to eat it!
*FRESH FRUIT: You can use fresh fruit for this recipe, BUT you will have to freeze it yourself first! To do so, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove any stems or peels from your fruit and slice them into smaller pieces. Lay the pieces out in a single layer on the baking sheet and place into the freezer until the fruits are frozen solid, about 8 hours or overnight.
  • Feel free to get creative and use ANY frozen fruit (or a mix of them) instead of strawberries.
  • I used plain greek yogurt for this recipe, but I would assume it would work with a vegan yogurt as well. Do note that you may have to play around with the ingredients a bit to get the right consistency.
  • If you’d like to play around with extra flavours, you can try adding different spices like cinnamon, ginger, or cardamom. Or try throwing in something refreshing like mint or lime juice!
  • If you want to get real creative, add toppings like nuts, fresh fruit, or granola – just as you would at a frozen yogurt shop!
