Delicious and creamy frozen yogurt made with the frozen fruit of your choice (I used strawberries and bananas). It takes just 5 minutes of work, but be sure to check out my tips to achieve a creamy texture.
4 cupssliced frozen strawberries, or other frozen fruit of your choice (see notes)
2cupssliced frozen banana
1cupWhole milk Greek yogurt
2teaspoonorange extract, or vanilla extract, if you like
4 to 6tablespoonhoney,more to your liking, I used Greek honey
¼cup sugar, optional but highly recommended
1tablespooncorn syrup, optional
Combine the frozen strawberries, banana, yogurt, orange extract (or vanilla extract), honey, sugar, and corn syrup in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade or a heavy duty blender.
Blend until everything is combined into a creamy smoothie-like mixture. Taste, and if you like it sweeter add a bit more honey.
Transfer the mixture to a freezer safe container and smooth the surface. Press a piece of parchment against the top of the yogurt to prevent ice crystals from forming. Freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight.
To serve, allow the frozen yogurt to sit at room temperature for a few minutes just until soft enough to scoop. Scoop the amount you need (long, shallow pulls or strokes will produce better scoops). Enjoy!
For best flavor and consistency: It is important to use whole milk (full fat) Greek yogurt here for the best consistency, and the corn syrup does help if you have it. And while the sugar is optional, it does help the consistency of the frozen yogurt. If you want an even creamier finish, add ¼ cup of heavy whipping cream with the frozen fruit and rest of the ingredients before blending. And if you like, you can swap out the Greek yogurt for its thicker cousin, labneh (although it is more on the tart side and will require a bit more sweetner).
Other frozen fruits to try: frozen mango, peach, or other berries of your choice. Depending on what you choose, you may eliminate the banana.
To serve immediately, simply transfer the fro yo mixture to glasses and serve as a smoothie.
Storage: you can store frozen yogurt in the freezer in a tightly-closed container for up to 2 weeks. It is best consumed in the first 3 days when its flavor and consistency is at its best.
