If you’ve ever wondered if it’s possible to make frozen yogurt at home, I’m here to show you that it 100% is. And no – you don’t need to have an ice cream machine to do this!

This recipe is so easy to follow and gets you delicious, refreshing frozen yogurt at home in just minutes. All you need are 4 ingredients, most of which you likely already have on hand.

While this recipe is for a strawberry frozen yogurt, feel free to swap the strawberries with any frozen fruit of your liking. Frozen mangos, blueberries, raspberries… they would all work wonderfully!

Let’s get started!

Is Frozen Yogurt Healthy?

A quick look at the nutrition panel of a popular frozen yogurt chain reveals not the healthiest of ingredients – food colouring, corn syrup, carrageenan, etc. all appear.

While I’m a firm believer that there’s a time and place for ALL foods in our diet, if you want to have a healthier version of froyo then this recipe is for you!

THIS homemade frozen yogurt is made with just 4 simple ingredients:

Despite being so simple, it totally hits the spot. Plus, plain greek yogurt is an excellent source of protein, while strawberries are a great source of fibre.

How To Make Frozen Yogurt At Home

Making this homemade frozen yogurt is incredibly easy. The only equipment you need is a large food processor, but I think you could do this in a high-speed blender as well.

You do NOT need an ice cream maker to make this – I know most of us don’t have one of these at home!

To start, simply add the frozen strawberries (or other fruit), plain greek yogurt, maple syrup, and vanilla extract to your food processor.

Pulse and blend until a thick frozen yogurt texture is formed.

This can take a couple minutes, but you’re essentially done after that!

This homemade frozen yogurt can be enjoyed right away for more of a soft-serve texture.

If you want it more firm, you can transfer the frozen yogurt to a loaf pan and pop it in the freezer for about 30 minutes.

How To Store Homemade Frozen Yogurt

While I personally tend to eat this frozen yogurt straight from the food processor (lol), 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!

Can You Use Fresh Fruit?

You can definitely use fresh fruit for this recipe, BUT you will have to freeze it yourself first!

To freeze fresh fruit at home, 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.

Recipe Modifications

While I used frozen strawberries for this recipe, feel free to get creative and use ANY frozen fruit (or a mix of them) instead!

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 want to get real creative – feel free to add toppings as you would at a frozen yogurt shop. Fresh fruit, nuts, granola, mint, etc!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt (higher fat, if possible)
  • 4 cups frozen strawberries (or other fruit)
  • 3-4 Tbsp pure maple syrup (depending on desired sweetness)

Equipment

  • Food processor

Instructions

  • 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.
