Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

3 comments
Summer is finally here in Germany! Cold days are over, Flu season is gone and people is happy. Need more reasons to celebrate? Let's have some frozen yogurt!

Frozen Yogurt is a great alternative for a healthy frozen treat. It's light, creamy and so fresh. You won't have enough of it.


There are two ways of making this recipe: with or without an ice cream maker. There's a BIG difference between a frozen yogurt made using this machine and one made without using it. The ice cream maker assures a smooth and creamy consistency, just like the one you'd get on a frozen yogurt shop.

Don't worry if you don't have this machine: I don't either. The results won't be as great as making it with the ice cream maker, but the frozen yogurt will come out just fine.

For this recipe I used fresh strawberries because they're juicier and more flavorful than the frozen ones. Make sure they're perfectly clean and slice them into fine pieces.


In a bowl, place the sliced strawberries and combine them with the sugar. Cover them and let them rest at room temperature for about an hour. This will help the strawberries release all their flavor.


You can either use natural regular yogurt or natural greek yogurt. For this recipe I used regular.


Make sure to choose an adequate form for freezing the yogurt. I find it easier to work with plastic containers, such as 'tupperwares' or old ice cream jars.


Let the mix freeze for 3 to 4 hours, stirring every 30 minutes to avoid ice crystals from forming. I get better results when I let it freeze overnight. If you do have an ice cream maker, chill the mix for about an hour and then freeze it in your machine, according to manufacturer's instructions. 


Decorate with your favorite topping and enjoy!
