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!

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.

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.

  • Author: The Healthy Maven
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 40 minutes
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 servings 1x


  • 1 32 oz container of greek yogurt (full fat or low fat are fine)1
  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • optional: 1/2 cup of fresh or frozen berries, 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder (for chocolate-flavored), or add-ins of choice


  1. In a large bowl combine all ingredients.
  2. Place mixed ingredients into your ice cream maker (I use the KitchenAid ice cream attachment)
  3. Mix for 35-40 minutes or until consistency is reached with your ice cream maker.

1. I prefer to use greek as it makes for a creamier frozen yogurt

      I haven’t! But you may have some luck freezing and then breaking it up in your food processor. I’ll let you know if I try it!

      Can’t wait to try this. I also want to try to make coffee-flavored yogurt from plain or vanilla. Any recipes for that? Or how about convincing Stonyfield to pilot large cartons of organic coffee yogurt?

        Oh man I would loveeeee that! Try adding some instant espresso powder to the recipe. Will add that nice coffee flavor without changing texture!

    Fantastic recipe! I want to try this with coconut yogurt, some maple syrup, and cacao powder! Looks delicious. I haven’t had a tart-flavored frozen yogurt in AGES–I actually kind of miss it!

    So easy and so delicious! I added some melted unsweetened chocolate to the mix and it hardened a bit throughout… great!

    Sounds great, but I don’t like soft serve. How do I get the texture of hard ice cream. Will non-Greek yogurt do the trick or will that just make it less creamy, but not hard?

    Would it be OK to use organic maple syrup or yacon syrup instead of honey?

    Texture and consistency was perfect before putting it in the Tupperware to freeze but then it crystallised into a very icey texture. Any thoughts as to why it didn’t stay smooth and soft?

      which brand/type of yogurt were you using? May help sort out the issue!

        Full fat organic Greek. Thought this would be nicer than the low fat stuff! Could it be that the freezer container wasn’t sealed tight enough?

          That might be it! I always use full fat organic greek and have never had an issue but could have been the container or maybe the brand just had more water in it. Sorry this happened!

    This looks amazing! Does this yield 1.5 quarts or less ? I’m using a cuisinart icecream make for first time and it says recipes need to be for 1.5 quarts or less . Please and thank you!
