Did we mention these recipes were no fuss? You can whip up a batch of yummy frozen yogurt using a food processor or blender. No ice cream maker necessary. Boo-yah! In this video, Gemma of Bigger Bolder Baking celebrated her blog’s third year by sharing five new DIY froyo flavors. You’ll want to try all five. No humdrum vanilla here!
We’re listing just a couple of her recipes down below, but you can watch the clip to get a taste of all the fancy flavors. Just blend your ingredients together and put the mix into the freezer for a few hours.
Cookies & Cream
One of the most popular dessert flavors of all time, cookies and cream froyo is quick and easy.
In your food processor combine: 1 cup of yogurt, 8 ounces of cream cheese, 1 tablespoon of honey, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. For vegans, sub in non-dairy versions of yogurt and cream cheese, and 1 tablespoon of agave nectar or maple syrup.
Blend until it’s smooth. Add 1 cup of chopped Oreo cookies (you can use another favorite too). Blend again for a few seconds, maintaining the thick texture of your yogurt. Scoop it into a freezer friendly airtight container and freeze it for at least 4 hours.
This pretty combo is sweet, bright, and fruity, using frozen fruit to make the simple treat.
Blend 1 cup of frozen raspberries with 2 tablespoons of honey or agave, ½ cup of yogurt, and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice together for about 2 minutes. Scrape it into a bowl and put it in the freezer.
Rinse out the food processor and add 1 cup of frozen peaches, and repeat the same measurements for honey, yogurt, and lemon juice. Grab the raspberries and drop a few dollops on top of the peach mix, spreading them around. Using a spatula, lightly swirl the flavors together, keeping the marbled effect intact. Put the yogurt into an airtight container and freeze overnight.
Gemma makes it so easy to make a frozen dessert without a bulky ice cream maker. She also shares where to find those perfect pint sized tubs for safekeeping your creations. And the best part? You don’t have to share if you don’t want to because everyone can have their own flavor!
