I love frozen treats in all forms and while I have long made Strawberry Frozen Yogurt and Homemade Frozen Yogurt, I am so glad to share this Greek Frozen Yogurt recipe with you now. It is so creamy, so easy to make, and just a favorite dessert or refreshing snack to share with the kids.

I love this dessert for kids since it doesn’t require any fancy equipment and you can vary the flavor as you like. It’s also a protein snack for kids, so it satisfies and helps us have lots of energy until the next meal.

Also, it just tastes so good!

Ingredients You Need

Here’s a look at what you need to make this Greek Frozen Yogurt so you know what to have on hand and ready to go.

Ingredients for greek frozen yogurt on countertop.
  • Greek yogurt: Using full-fat, whole milk plain Greek yogurt in this recipe ensures that it’s super creamy, rich, and satisfying. (You can use a lower fat or non-fat Greek yogurt, but it may not be quite as epic.)
  • Maple syrup or honey: This frozen yogurt tastes best sweetened a little with maple syrup or honey (for kids over age 1). You can also use agave nectar if you prefer.
  • Lemon juice: I like to add a little brightness and fresh flavor to this recipe by adding fresh lemon juice.
  • Vanilla extract: A little vanilla helps round out the flavors and make the Greek Frozen Yogurt really taste like dessert.

Ingredient Substitutions

To make this recipe dairy-free, use a non-dairy Greek style frozen yogurt in place of the dairy yogurt. It should work similarly, though it may be harder to find a plain unsweetened version.

Or you can skip all of the ingredients other than the yogurt and start with vanilla or fruit-flavored Greek yogurt.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you just freeze Greek yogurt to make frozen yogurt?

Yes, though it’s creamier if you use the optional step of straining some of the liquid out before freezing.

Is frozen Greek yogurt healthier than ice cream?

Frozen Greek yogurt has ample protein and usually is lower in added sugar than regular ice cream.

Is Greek yogurt OK if it freezes?

Greek yogurt is fine to freeze. The main thing to know is that it freezes very firm, so you’ll want to let it sit out a bit before eating.

How to Store

Freeze Greek Frozen Yogurt in individual portions for up to 3 months in a freezer container in the freezer. Smaller portions will soften faster at room temperature, so this can be helpful.

The dessert for kids recipe does freeze firm, so plan to let it sit at room temperature for a bit before serving to allow it time to soften.

Best Tips for Success

  • Freeze for 3-4 hours and stir vigorously to serve soft Greek Frozen Yogurt. Or freeze overnight and let sit at room temperature for a bit before serving so it’s very creamy (and not frozen solid).
  • Try adding 1 cup minced strawberries, raspberries, mango, blueberries, or peaches to make a fruit flavor of this Greek Frozen Yogurt. Or stir in Strawberry Sauce, Blueberry Sauce, or Peach Sauce.
  • Churn this in an ice cream machine and serve immediately for a soft fro yo texture.
  • Try topping with peanut butter or dark chocolate chips for extra yum.
  • To make this with regular yogurt, simply place a little more than the recipe calls for into a paper towel-lined fine-mesh sieve placed over a bowl. Let it drain for at least an hour (or longer) to remove some of the liquid and thicken the yogurt.
  • Dairy-free: Try coconut cream (from a can) or nondairy Greek style yogurt like the kind from Siggi’s.

  • Stir together all ingredients until well combined. Taste to adjust the sweetness as you like.
  • Place in a freezer-safe container, seal the lid, and freeze for 3-4 hours (until just firm) and stir vigorously to break up any parts of the frozen yogurt that have frozen more solid than others. Serve.

    1. I use one of the plastic storage containers from Zwilling. Any freezer safe container will work too. Enjoy!

  1. I’m curious if the lemon juice is necessary. I don’t want to leave it out if it is- is it for flavor or does it do something else? Thanks!

    1. You can leave it out. It brightens the flavor in a nice way without making it taste lemony, but omit it if you want.
