Rich and creamy Greek yogurt makes the perfect base for homemade frozen yogurt. All it takes is 3 ingredients to make a simple recipe for frozen yogurt- honey, vanilla and Greek yogurt. (For the best texture, be sure to use full fat or reduced-fat 2 % Greek yogurt. Fat-free 0 % Greek yogurt will have an icy, less creamy texture.) Simply freeze in an automatic ice cream maker for a delicious frozen dessert.
Don’t have an ice cream maker? Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make ice cream without a machine by David Lebovitz, author of The Perfect Scoop, an amazing book on how to make ice cream and other frozen desserts.
Vanilla Greek Frozen Yogurt
2 cups full fat or reduced-fat (2 %) plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla
Stir together Greek yogurt, honey and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour until well chilled. Freeze in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions.
For a soft serve consistency, serve immediately. For a firm, scoop-able consistency transfer to a freezer container and freeze until firm. (Homemade frozen yogurt, especially low fat frozen yogurt, freezes very firm. To serve, let the frozen yogurt soften at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes or until soft enough to scoop.)
Makes about 1 pint (4 servings)
Tip: This recipe makes a small batch of frozen yogurt. If you’re serving a crowd, double the recipe to make a quart.
