Sidebar: Tips for making the best frozen yogurt.

Because yogurt contains a fair amount of water and not a lot of fat, freezing it can turn it into a solid, yogurt-flavored mass. Here are a few tips to help you create a creamy, dreamy frozen dessert, as well as some helpful and tasty serving suggestions.

  • Use full fat or whole milk yogurt for a creamier result with fewer icy crystals.
  • Adding a bit of heavy cream will also give your frozen yogurt a smoother texture.
  • Incorporating added sugar will also give your frozen yogurt a creamier texture.
  • Because yogurt freezes harder than most ice cream, pour it into a shallow baking pan to freeze. It makes scooping much easier.
  • You can “pre-scoop” your yogurt before freezing. Portion yogurt into ramekins or muffin tins, than freeze. Let soften for 10-20 minutes before serving. This is perfect for parties or large gatherings.
  • Try infusing your yogurt before freezing for fun, fresh flavors. Citrus zest – orange, lemon, or lime – works well for a fresh, summery vibe. Herbs like mint or basil add a tasty change of pace. Let your imagination soar!
  • Topping your frozen yogurt with fresh summer fruit like berries, cherries, peaches, or figs makes a beautiful presentation that is nutritious as well as delicious.
