This homemade frozen yogurt is made from Greek yogurt and honey, and without an ice cream maker. Smooth, creamy and ready to be served immediately!
There are a few ingredients that keep frozen ice cream and frozen yogurt from freezing solid: fat, sugar and possibly gelatin. The less moisture you have in your frozen treat, the less likely it is to freeze solid, too. But there’s a way to enjoy creamy, smooth, scoopable frozen yogurt without much sugar and without any gelatin—and on a moment’s notice.
When you freeze Greek yogurt with at least 2% milkfat into cubes (whole milk is 4% milkfat), you can process it with just a bit of honey into refreshingly cold frozen yogurt that’s ready in minutes. Just pop the yogurt into a food processor until it turns snow-like in consistency and appearance, add some honey and process just until it clumps.
The frozen cubes of yogurt themselves have a tendency to begin to melt pretty quickly once you take them out of the freezer. Just be sure to have your food processor set up and ready to go, with a simple squeeze bottle of honey right alongside. Then, remove the cubes from the freezer, pop them in the processor. Process, add honey, and process again. Voila!
You don’t need an ice cream machine at all. The only advanced planning is to freeze the yogurt into cubes, but they’ll keep for quite a while in the freezer. You’ll be ready whenever the FroYo mood strikes!
