Wondering if you can freeze yogurt? This creamy dairy ingredient actually holds up well when frozen: here’s how to do it!


  • Yogurt (regular, Greek or flavored)


  1. If the yogurt is unopened, leave it in the original packaging and place the package in a resealable freezer safe plastic bag. Or, you can freeze it in smaller quantities if you don’t think you’ll use it all at once: go to Step 2.
  2. Determine whether to divide the yogurt into small sizes (in small containers or even an ice cube tray), or freeze it all together. Keep in mind you cannot re-freeze the yogurt, so it’s helpful to have smaller sizes if you don’t plan to use it all at once. Place the yogurt into a sealed freezable container that will have as little air as possible, or place small portions in sealable freezer safe bags.
  3. Use a permanent marker to label the yogurt with a “use by” date that is 2 months in the future. If using a plastic bag, partially seal the plastic bag, then use a straw to suck out all air from the bag.
  4. Place the yogurt in the freezer and freeze for up to 2 months. To defrost the yogurt, place it in the refrigerator for 24 to 48 hours. Once thawed, stir it, which returns it to a creamy texture. Use within 2 days; do not re-freeze the yogurt.
