Here’s how to make frozen yogurt! This homemade frozen yogurt recipe is so simple and comes out tangy and creamy with just 3 ingredients. Essentially a Greek yogurt ice cream, it hits the spot in any season: add your favorite toppings and enjoy!


  • 32 ounce container (3 3/4 cups) full fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup granulated sugar*
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)


  1. Whisk together vigorously the yogurt, cream, sugar, and vanilla extract (if using). Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved (test by rubbing slightly with your fingers to see if it is gritty, then taste). 
  2. Freeze the yogurt mixture in an ice cream maker, according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Or, you can freeze it in silicon ice cube trays for 3 hours, then pop out the cubes and blend in a food processor until smooth (if you freeze overnight, allow the cubes to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes, then blend in batches). This should have a soft serve consistency. Top with toppings and serve.**
  3. Optional: For a scoopable consistency, freeze 2 to 3 hours, depending on your ice cream maker, to harden to a scoopable consistency. 
  4. Leftover storage: Homemade frozen yogurt is best eaten when freshly made. Leftovers store up to 1 week frozen. The texture becomes very icy and hard when frozen overnight, so allow it to thaw on the counter for at least 30 minutes before scooping. After thawing, consider running it through a food processor to allow it to come to a more uniform texture before serving.


*This frozen yogurt tastes pleasantly tangy. If desired for a sweeter frozen yogurt, add 1/4 cup additional sugar. If you’d like, you can substitute honey, agave syrup, or pure maple syrup for the sweetener. Keep in mind the color will look slightly darker with maple syrup.

**For a fun presentation, you also can pipe it into a cup using a pastry bag (completely optional; we did it just for the photos).

***Add the toppings of your choice! Try sprinkles, fresh strawberries or raspberries, strawberry compote, edible cookie dough, and more.
