Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

by Laura

I wanted to get one more chilly treat in before Summer comes to an end.  My kiddos will be back in school in 2 weeks.  This would also make a delicious after school snack.  It is so easy to make frozen yogurt at home.  It only takes 3 ingredients.  The main ingredient being Greek yogurt.  Since Greek yogurt is thick and rich it is perfect for making frozen yogurt.  Then you just need some sugar and vanilla extract.
Now keep in mind this version tastes like yogurt.  It isn’t going to be as sweet as what you can buy in the grocery store.  It comes out nice and thick right after it finishes churning.  No extra chill time was needed for what you see in the photo.  I also topped mine with some raspberry sauce.

Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

  • 3 cups plain Greek yogurt (you can use full fat, low fat, or nonfat – I used Fage total 0% from Costco)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  1. In a bowl, combine the yogurt, sugar, and vanilla extract.  Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  2. Pour into your ice cream freezer.  I used my Cuisinart ICE-20 Automatic 1-1/2-Quart Ice-Cream Maker, WhiteIce-Cream Machines)and churned it for 20 minutes.  Makes 1 quart.

@Katie-I used Stony Field plain yogurt and I strained it for a couple of hours. You could definitely tell it was made with yogurt, and it had that tart yogurt taste. I loved it, my husband didn’t love it as much. It was not as tart as the tart flavor at Red Mango. I am going to try it with vanilla yogurt and see if he likes it better. If you are concerned about the yogurt flavor, maybe try using vanilla yogurt.

When you say it tastes like yogurt, how much so? Is it a strong yogurty taste or mild? If you use regular yogurt would it taste less yogurty?
