Here are two ways to make delicious frozen yogurt at home:

Method 1: No Ice Cream Maker Needed (Simple and Quick)

This method is perfect for a quick and easy frozen yogurt treat without needing an ice cream maker.


  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt (whole milk or low fat, depending on your preference)
  • ¼ - ½ cup honey or maple syrup (adjust to your desired sweetness)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen fruit (optional) - chopped


  1. Combine yogurt and sweetener: In a large bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, honey or maple syrup, and vanilla extract until well combined and smooth.

  2. Optional: Add fruit: If you're using fruit, gently fold it into the yogurt mixture. Frozen fruit can add a thicker consistency, while fresh fruit might result in a softer frozen yogurt.

  3. Freeze the mixture: Pour the yogurt mixture into a shallow, freezer-safe container. Cover the container with plastic wrap or an airtight lid.

  4. Freeze for at least 4 hours: Place the container in the freezer for at least 4 hours, or until frozen.

  5. Breaking up the ice crystals (optional): For a smoother texture, after 2 hours of freezing, take out the container and whisk the mixture to break up any ice crystals that may have formed. Return it to the freezer to continue freezing.

  6. Scooping and serving: Once fully frozen, take the container out of the freezer and let it sit for a few minutes to soften slightly. This will make it easier to scoop. Scoop the frozen yogurt into bowls and enjoy!

Method 2: Using an Ice Cream Maker (Creamier Texture)

This method utilizes an ice cream maker for a creamier frozen yogurt with a consistency closer to store-bought options.


  • 2 cups whole milk yogurt
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Whisk together ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, heavy cream, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt until smooth.

  2. Chill the mixture: Cover the bowl and refrigerate the yogurt mixture for at least 2 hours, or until well chilled. This helps with churning and prevents ice crystals from forming.

  3. Follow ice cream maker instructions: Pour the chilled yogurt mixture into your ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's instructions. This typically takes 20-25 minutes.

  4. Freezing (optional): Once churned, you can enjoy the frozen yogurt immediately for a soft-serve consistency. If you prefer a firmer texture, transfer the churned yogurt to a freezer-safe container, cover it with plastic wrap or an airtight lid, and freeze for at least 2 hours.

  5. Scooping and serving: When ready to serve, take the frozen yogurt out of the freezer and let it sit for a few minutes to soften slightly. Scoop into bowls and enjoy your homemade frozen yogurt!


  • For both methods, you can experiment with different flavors by adding extracts like almond or mint, or using different fruits or mix-ins like chocolate chips or chopped nuts.
  • If the frozen yogurt becomes too icy after freezing, you can let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes to soften slightly before scooping.
  • Frozen yogurt is best enjoyed fresh, but can be stored in the freezer for up to 2 weeks. The longer it's stored, the icier it might become.

Enjoy your delicious homemade frozen yogurt!
