Recipe – Homemade Frozen Yogurt


It’s awfully hot here these days, so today I decided to make use of our overstock of yogurt to cool myself down a little. Of course, I could have taken another trip to the ice cream parlor, but I wanted to go for something low-calorie instead.

You need (serves 1 or 2 depending on their appetite 😉 )
  • a freezer
  • 2 freezer bags
  • about 250g (~8.5oz) plain yogurt (that’s the smallest unit you can buy over here)
  • optional: vanilla, sugar, fruit, cookies,…
How it’s done
  1. Put the yogurt into one of the freezer bags.
  2. If you want to, you can add some sugar, vanilla, fruit puree, cookie crumbs, or whatever else comes to your mind.
  3. Seal the bag and check if it’s really closed.
  4. If you added something to the yogurt, mix carefully kneading the bag with your hands.
  5. Put the bag with the yogurt into the second bag. (This is just to make sure nothing leaks). Seal the second bag.
  6. Find a safe place in the freezer and freeze for 1-2 hours. You should quickly knead your yogurt bag every 10-15 minutes to get a smooth texture. You have to be especially attentive once you notice the yogurt freezing. Things go fast from there.
  7. Your frozen yogurt is done when the whole bag contains a smooth frozen mixture.

Bon Appetite!
