You know how I'm always saying "simpler is often better?"
Well, this recipe for an easy no-churn fruit frozen yogurt is a case of that, for sure.
Seriously, you aren't going to believe how easy this recipe is:
Put any frozen fruit chunks into a food processor with some Greek yogurt, a bit of honey and whir it up.
Is that crazy, or what?
And where has this been all my life?
Don't like yogurt?
If you don't like yogurt (like me!!), I'm pretty sure you will love this - it doesn't taste like yogurt, only the flavor of the fruit comes through with a little tang from the yogurt.
I love it - and I don't eat any kind of yogurt that's not in a recipe!
TIP: This recipe would also make great quick and easy popsicles, too, by spooning the yogurt mixture into popsicle molds like these before freezing (think: quick healthy snacks!).
No Churn Easy Fruit Frozen Yogurt
- Frozen fruit (I love any type of berry which I sometimes mix with frozen sliced apples like the ingredients above, but any type of chopped, frozen fruit works - peaches, pears, mangos, kiwi, etc.)
- Yogurt, preferably a thicker yogurt or Greek yogurt
For the photos for this recipe, you'll see two different yogurt mixtures - one is pure strawberry, the other is blueberry-apple.
PRO TIP: This is a great way to use up the fruit you have stashed in your freezer!
- Food Processor or high speed blender
- Measuring cups and spoons (TIP: for tablespoons of liquid things like the honey in this recipe, I love using "shot glass" measurers for less mess and more accuracy)
- Spatula (for scraping from processor)
- Plastic freezer-safe container OR glass lidded freezer-safe container OR metal loaf pan (use foil for a lid) - or even a dedicated homemade ice cream tub container
- Heavy Duty Ice Cream Scoop
- Classic Ice Cream Scoop with Lever
Fruit Frozen Yogurt Directions
You've probably already guessed this:
- Add all the ingredients to a food processor.
- Whir it until it's thoroughly mixed.
Making this easy frozen yogurt should take less than 5 minutes, pulsing a couple of times to make sure all the fruit is processed.
TIP: You may think you need to scrape the sides of the processor while whirring, but if you hold the power on for about 5 seconds, stop, process again for 5-7 seconds, and so on, you'll see that all the fruit from the top circles down into the blade to be mixed together - no scraping needed!
You can eat it right away as a soft-serve treat, but it will be become firmer to scoop (like in some of my photos) if you freeze it first.
It gets a bit hard after freezing, but with a little thawing it scoops right out.
This heavy duty ice cream scoop should make it easy (and there's also this classic ice cream scoop with an easy-release lever for those picture-perfect mound of ice cream or frozen yogurt).
I'll go on record saying that it's maybe not the super creamy texture you get with a machine, but it sure tastes a lot like regular frozen yogurt:
It's smooth, cool, and refreshing with the flavor of the delicious real food ingredients.
And how can you beat three ingredients and five minutes?
Which sounds just right for a hot summer afternoon.
Quick & Easy No Churn Fruit Frozen Yogurt
- Food Processor or high speed blender
- 1 ½ cups yogurt, preferably Greek or thicker yogurt
- 4 cups frozen fruit (any berry, chopped apples, peaches, pears, mangoes, kiwi, etc.)
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Place all ingredients in a food processor and whirl until smooth.
- Serve immediately for soft serve.
- For a firmer, scoop-able frozen treat freeze for at least 2 hours. If the yogurt is frozen hard (like after a few days), let thaw on the counter a bit or microwave about 10 seconds for easier scooping.
