Making frozen yogurt at home has never been easier. All you need are 4 simple ingredients and 5 minutes of your time. Seriously, that’s it!

It’s summer, which means it’s also means that it’s berry season! The berries that have been available to us at our local farmers market have been  soooo dang good this year and we thought that it was the perfect time to come out with a berry-centric recipe!

I got the idea for this recipe after I put together a fruit and yogurt smoothie for us one morning. It tastes just like frozen yogurt to me and I realized that if I decreased the liquid and used the Vitamix tamper that I could create the PERFECT frozen yogurt consistency. Well, after a few tests, we finally got it down and it was so easy to do.

For this recipe, you will need frozen strawberries, unsweetened plain vegan yogurt, vanilla extract and a liquid sweetener of your choice (we used maple syrup). Pop everything into a high speed blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy! This whole recipe takes just 5 minutes to make.

Here are some tips and variations to try:

  • You can use store bought frozen strawberries OR fresh frozen strawberries for this recipe. To freeze strawberries at home, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Remove the stems from your strawberries and half them, then lay them out in a single layer on the baking sheet and place that into the refrigerator until the strawberries are frozen solid, about 8 hours or overnight.
  • If you would like, you could use medjool dates in place of the maple syrup but just keep in mind that you may need to add a few tablespoons of water to get things going if there isn’t enough liquid to blend it.
  • You can use sweetened and flavored yogurt, just keep in mind that this will alter the flavor of the frozen yogurt in the end. If you are using sweetened yogurt, you will need to adjust the maple syrup or remove it all together based on your preference. If you are using vanilla yogurt, the addition of vanilla extract may not be necessary.
  • If you prefer not to use strawberries, try 3 cups of your favorite fruit (frozen)! Results may vary and we have not tested this out ourselves, but our next test is going to be frozen blueberries and peaches!

We garnished ours with fresh mint but tbh I wished we had those little mochis that they have at froyo shops, those are my FAVORITE frozen yogurt topping. What is your go-to topping?

I ended up adding granola after I photographed this froyo and it was so dang good with it. The crunch paired nicely with the creamy vegan frozen yogurt that we made!

5-Minute Strawberry Frozen Yogurt (Vegan + No Machine)


  • Author: Jasmine @ Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 4 small servings

Description

Making vegan frozen yogurt at home has never been easier. All you need are 4 simple ingredients and 5 minutes of your time. Seriously, that’s it!


Ingredients

  • 3 cups frozen strawberries* (see notes)
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened plain vegan yogurt* (see notes)
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons maple syrup (or as desired)
  • Optional: fresh mint, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Add all of the ingredients (except for the mint) into a high speed blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. Adjust the sweetness to taste.
  2. Serve immediately or transfer it to an airtight container and place it into the freezer for 2-3 hours to harden up a bit (as pictured above). You can store the vegan frozen yogurt in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 1 month, just be sure to leave it out for 10-15 minutes to soften.

Notes

  • You can use store bought frozen strawberries OR fresh frozen strawberries for this recipe. To freeze strawberries at home, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Remove the stems from your strawberries and half them, then lay them out in a single layer on the baking sheet and place that into the refrigerator until the strawberries are frozen solid, about 8 hours or overnight.
  • If you would like, you could use medjool dates in place of the maple syrup but just keep in mind that you may need to add a few tablespoons of water to get things going if there isn’t enough liquid to blend it.
