Have you ever wondered how to make frozen yogurt? It's easier than you think! With just 3 ingredients you'll be swapping out those froyo shops for homemade frozen yogurt everyday!

In case you missed it, I recently announced on Instagram that I’ve teamed up with my of my favorite companies, Stonyfield Organic for a year-long ambassadorship with them. This certainly isn’t the first you’ve heard me speak of Stonyfield. You may remember back in February when I travelled around Northern California with their team to learn about organic farming practices and the importance of growing and purchasing organic products. It was easily one of the best and most transformative brand trips I’ve ever attended. Since that trip I’ve committed to eating *mostly* organic (when I can!) and now feel informed and empowered in this decision. That’s why when they asked me to team up with them it was an absolute no brainer. I not only love their yogurts, but I also love what their brand stands for, and as you guys know that’s super important to me.

So for the next year you’ll be getting delicious recipes, informative tips and education around organics and lots of exciting new stuff coming your way. DIY Yogurt Face Mask anyone?!

I thought we would kick things off with a delicious (and healthy) dessert that is perfect for summer: frozen yogurt! Are you a fro-yo fan? It was totally “the thing to do” when I was in high school and college… head to the local frozen yogurt shop – you know, the one with 28 flavors of frozen yogurt and 134 toppings to choose from. I loved that you could build your own dessert but admittedly often went overboard on the toppings. Less is more in my opinion!

Creamy Frozen Yogurt Base

If you are a toppings fan, I kept the base of this recipe simple…lucky you. It’s a creamy, perfectly sweet, vanilla frozen yogurt that allows you to be as creative as you want with it!

Mix in different fruits or add-ins for a new base flavor or go wild with toppings of your choice. I’m already daydreaming about a mint chocolate chip version or a peanut butter banana. YUM.

All you need are three healthy ingredients for your frozen yogurt: Yogurt (I prefer full fat greek), vanilla extract + Honey!

I’m so excited for this partnership! I get to share delicious recipes like this tutorial on how to make Frozen Yogurt (make it- for real!) but also will be educating around ways we can support our bodies and support the health of the planet.

It’s gonna be an exciting year and I cannot wait to share more!

How To Make Frozen Yogurt

Ingredients you need: Greek Yogurt, Raw Honey, Vanilla Extract

Tools you need: An ice cream maker (we love our Kitchen-Aid Stand Mixer Attachment)

Patience! Between getting the ice cream maker to the correct temperature and letting the frozen yogurt set, it takes some time but it is so worth it for your own delicious, homemade frozen yogurt.

    This is marvellous! I am using Skyr, the thick Icelandic yogurt, t can be no fat or 2% fat.
    I also added to scoops of vanilla protein powder for a fabulous protein hit!
    Could be keto or PE diet. What a life saver. Thank you.
    Reduced hone to taste, which was 1/8 c for me.

    Any thoughts on using a non-dairy yogurt (ex. Kite Hill almond yogurt (greek style)?

      Wouldn’t recommend as it probably won’t freeze well!

    Sugar syrup would work, and wouldn’t taint the flavor.
    Not everyone agrees honey flavoured fro-yo is a winner.

    I have several containers of plain yogurt and I decided to look if it could be used in an ice cream machine. Lo and behold! A recipe almost taylor made.. as in minimal ingredients, but I don’t have access to raw honey. Access meaning, pinching pennies cause mamma don’t have funds to purchase raw honey. It’s not healthy, but can granulated sugar be substituted for the raw honey? Anxiously awaiting good news to bust out the ice cream bucket and give it a spin.. and rock salt.. hmmm

    20 minutes into the conversion, and I can’t wait! Kitchen aid recommends have the machine stirring first, then add the batter, I guess so it doesn’t just freeze in a clump. I added the cocoa, and I’m using Olympic Greek 2% plain. Thanks for the recipe!

    Could be due to the water content in the frozen fruits as well.
