Super Easy Natural Frozen Greek Yogurt Recipe

Posted by

I love tart frozen yogurt and have been trying to find a good recipe to use with my ice cream maker. I finally found a recipe that I love - because it fits the bill for being easy and adaptable! I haven't made any other flavors yet but clearly adding fruit and/or chocolate chips, etc. would be great.

I forgot to take a picture before my family devoured the end result so you just get to see the ingredients. Whoops! It is best straight from the ice cream maker but it freezes fine. You will just want to soften in for about 20-30 seconds in the microwave or let it sit out for about 10 minutes before eating it.

The great thing about this recipe is that 1/2 cup serving has around 5 grams of protein - not bad! And under 200 calories. And it tastes WAY better than the store bought stuff. I think you could experiment using milk instead of cream - or non-fat evaporated milk, if you want to reduce fat. Alternatively you could use full-fat Greek yogurt and milk. I personally like there to be some fat to make it creamy!

Best and Easiest Frozen Yogurt

  • 16 oz. Non-fat Greek Yogurt
  • 1 cup half and half or light cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar (more or less to taste - this makes it pretty sweet!)
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup (or vodka!) - to give softer/smoother consistency (optional)
  • 2-3 teaspoons real vanilla extract (or any other flavor)
  • Optional add-ins (chocolate chips, crushed candy, berries, peaches, sprinkles, crushed cookies, etc.)

Mix all of the ingredients minus the add-ins in a bowl. Add to the bowl of the ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Best consumed soft - super creamy and very yummy.

Serves about 8. (OK not "really" in my family...)
