Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

It’s really amazing how good homemade frozen yogurt can be—and all you have to do is dice up some berries and stir them together with a few other ingredients you might already have on hand! It’s creamy, flavorful, and fresh.

This is one of those recipe that I’ve been making for years, both for myself, and for my kids. I couldn’t get enough when I was pregnant in the summer and we often share it with friends during backyard dinners in the warmer months.

TIP: I love making this recipe when I have strawberries with really great flavor since that ensures that the final result will be most delicious.

Ingredients You Need

To make this easy frozen yogurt recipe, you’ll need:

TIP: The Greek yogurt really makes the texture in this recipe, so do use it over regular yogurt. And if you only have regular yogurt, see the Notes at the bottom of the recipe for details on how to make it work!

Step by Step Instructions

Here’s a look at the basic process. Scroll down to the bottom of the recipe for the full info.

  1. Add the ingredients to a freezer-safe container that has a lid.
  2. Stir together.
  3. Seal the lid and freeze.
  4. Let soften a bit at room temperature before serving.

TIP: This freezes hard, so you need to let it sit out a bit before you’ll be able to serve it. Mash it up a bit to break up any ice crystals—it should quickly become super creamy once you do that.

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Recipe without an Ice Cream Maker

I love simple recipes and not having to haul out appliances, so all you have to do to make this recipe is to stir the ingredients together and freeze it. So easy!

(I actually do have an ice cream maker and have used it to make this, but the results are virtually the same without it, so no need to make a bigger mess!)

How to Store

Store in a freezer-safe container for up to 2 weeks in the freezer. Let sit at room temperature for a bit to soften before serving.

Best Tips for Success

  • Freeze in individual portions if desired. They will soften faster at room temperature.
  • Try with other fresh berries like raspberries.
  • Freeze the mixture into popsicle molds if desired.
  • You could churn this in an ice cream maker and serve immediately for a soft frozen texture.
  • 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 let out some of the liquid and thicken the yogurt.
  • It’s possible that this will work just as well with Greek style nondairy yogurt. Please comment below if you try that out!
  • You may also like Strawberry Popsicles, Fudge Pops, Chocolate Banana Pops, and Instant Frozen Yogurt.

Favorite Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

This is so fresh and so creamy. It does freeze firm, so plan to let it sit at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before serving.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups plain whole milk Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup honey (or maple syrup)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup strawberries (stems removed and finely diced)

Instructions

  • Stir together all ingredients until well combined. Taste it to adjust the sweetness as you like. (You may need a little more honey or maple syrup if your strawberries aren't super flavorful.)
  • Add to a freezer-safe container, seal the lid, and freeze for 4-6 hours or until just firm, or overnight.
  • Let sit for 20-30 minutes before serving to soften. Stir and mash it up before serving for the creamiest consistency. (Doing that will break up any ice crystals that form.)

Notes

  • Freeze in individual portions if desired. They will soften faster at room temperature.
  • Try with other fresh berries like raspberries.
  • Freeze the mixture into popsicle molds if desired.
  • You could churn this in an ice cream maker and serve immediately for a soft frozen texture.
  • 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 let out some of the liquid and thicken the yogurt.
  • Double the recipe to make a larger quantity.
  • Store in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
  • Dairy-free: Try coconut cream (from a can) or nondairy Greek style yogurt like the kind from Siggis.

    1. Yes, just let them thaw a little first so it’s easy to stir and consider cutting them up with kitchen scissors.

  1. Hello, my toddler is dairy free and Greek style yogurts for her are hard to come by. You think I can use coconut cream? I’ll try with Oatly yogurt first to see how it goes.

    1. 5 stars
      I think coconut cream would work well. Siggi’s makes a plant based one that’s pretty widely available (it’s in my small town grocery store, which doesn’t often have any specialty ingredients). Let me know how it goes!

  2. 5 stars
    My toddler (and I) loved this. I had to stop myself from just eating the yogurt mixture before it went into the freezer!
