Homemade Frozen Yogurt is rediculously easy to make and so so SO good! It’s fun to try out different brands and flavors of yogurt and add various fruits to make it unique. We like to use good yogurt filled with good cultures for an extra bonus.
What You Need:
- 32oz container of your favorite yogurt (or make your own)
- 1 c. sugar (Turbinado or succant works great! Do not use sugar or use less sugar if you get a flavored yogurt.)
- 1 t. vanilla extract (No need to add if you get vanilla yogurt.)
Mix all the ingredients together. Make sure the sugar has “melted” into the yogurt before you add it into your ice cream maker. After you add it to your ice cream maker it only takes about 10 or 15 minutes before it’s the right consistency so make sure you watch it!
Then dish it up and enjoy. Experiment with different yogurt brands to find your favorite. My personal fav is Straus Family Dairy European Yogurt (I order this from Azure Standard). It makes such a smooth creamy bowl! This is also excellent with Greek yogurt.

Any suggestions on a decent, reasonably priced ice cream maker suitable for a family of 5? Thanks for sharing your recipe! I have been wanting to try homemade frozen yogurt and ice cream!
I have a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker. It’s a little more expensive but we really love it, it makes a nice big batch! Prior to that I had a Hamilton Beach smaller model which did the job just fine and was cheap. I think it just depends on how much you plan to use it. We don’t buy any ice cream from the store so we use ours alot!
Thank you! I saw a nice 2 Cuisinart Ice Crem Maker on Amazon. My birthday is coming up so I think it’s time to drop some hints!
Especially on a hot day like today.
Is it possible to make frozen yoghurt without the icecream maker? Just by putting the mixture into the freezer?
You could but it won’t be the same texture. It’ll still be cold though!
Wow – I never realized it was this easy to make frozen yogurt. I’m going to have to try this!
oooo how easy! I love fro-yo… Now I want a icecream maker, just to make this :o)

Hi and Thank you!
I’m experimenting with homemade popsicles for my kids. I’m finding that yoghurt pops don’t taste like frozen yogurt at all when I just fill the molds and stick them in the freezer (I’m adding sweetener, fruit, etc). Do you think running the yogurt through the ice cream maker would help with that? I’d make fro-yo as per your instructions, fill it in the molds and freeze them. ..
I’m not really sure, I haven’t had much luck with making yogurt pops. The only luck I’ve had with making any kind of cold yogurt is this way…the texture seems to be the best.
This looks so good.
I would love for you to link up at the Mommy Archive – we’re focusing on favourite freezer recipes and tips this week, Alice x
i noticed that you are using store purchased yogurt , have you tried making your own yogurt in a crockpot i do ALL the time it is a huge savings over purchased . i cant wait to try this with my own yogurt
I have but I’ve found that since I’m the only one that eats it it’s hard for me to get it eaten up! 🙂
Have you tried to make this a chocolate frozen yogurt? I am wondering what you think of adding a little cocoa to it?
I haven’t but that sounds SO good! I would just add some unsweetened cocoa powder, you shouldn’t need much (We add just a large spoonful when we make ice cream). Yum!
Gonna try to make some froyo 🙂
Thanks for sharing your recipe!
Looks yummy! Our favorite variation is adding strawberries. YUUUMM!
Stopping by from the Wow Me Wednesday Link-Up! I love frozen yogurt, such a great alternative to ice cream. Thanks for sharing your recipe! 🙂
Thanks so much for linking up and sharing your recipe! I’ve been wanting to try this myself- I love fro-yo! My husband loves ice cream so I was thinking about getting him a ice cream maker for Christmas so I really appreciate the suggestions too. Since we have 4 littles, I know this is going to be requested a ton!
