easy recipe for homemade frozen yogurt dessert

Are the rumors true? We’ve heard all this talk about frozen yogurt being the perfect treat for anyone seeking a healthier alternative to traditional ice cream without compromising on taste. The frozen treat experts are back again to give you the scoop on how transforming yogurt into a frozen dessert opens up a universe of creamy, indulgent possibilities that align with your health-conscious lifestyle.

Does Frozen Yogurt Taste As Good As Ice Cream?

At True Scoops we have a deep affection for both ice cream and frozen yogurt, oftentimes finding ourselves torn between the two. Ice cream, with its rich decadence and creamy texture, will forever be the ultimate comfort treat, offering a wide variety of flavors that never fail to delight. 

However, frozen yogurt presents itself as an appealing alternative, especially on those days where we find ourselves craving something lighter and less sugary. Its tangy flavor profile, coupled with probiotic benefits, offers a refreshing and guilt-free indulgence. While ice cream remains our top choice for its unmatched smoothness and flavor diversity, frozen yogurt earns its place for its healthful qualities and satisfying taste, making it a delightful option for more health-conscious moments.

3 Ways To Freeze Yogurt

Freezing in a Container for Scooping

Sometimes, the simplest pleasures are the best—grab a spoon and enjoy frozen yogurt straight from your freezer. All you’d need is a simple container to transform your yogurt into a scoopable delight. We recommend freezing it in a shallow container, just like you would ice cream. You can even reuse our True Scoops ice cream mix containers for this method!                                                                                       

Use Ice Cube Trays

Ice cube trays are another cool, fun way to freeze yogurt. You’ll get a bite-sized frozen treat that's perfect for smoothies or a quick, cool snack. Pop these yogurt cubes out whenever you need a refreshing burst of flavor or a convenient way to chill and thicken your morning smoothie.

Popsicle Molds

Fill your popsicle molds with yogurt to create homemade frozen yogurt pops, perfect for hot summer days with the kids. You can add layers of fruits or drizzle with honey before freezing to really pack a punch with natural flavoring. 

How to Eat Frozen Yogurt 

Frozen Yogurt Bars

Slicing frozen yogurt into bars for a hand-held treat is convenient as it is delicious. Perfect for on-the-go enjoyment or a post-workout snack, these bars can be customized with nuts, fruits, or chocolate chips for an extra flavor kick.

Smoothie Bowls

You can use frozen yogurt as the creamy base for your next smoothie bowl, blending it with fruits and toppings for a nutritious, energizing start to your day. The rich texture of frozen yogurt adds a luxurious depth to your bowl, making breakfast feel like dessert.

In Dessert Recipes

Swap out ice cream for frozen yogurt in your dessert recipes to create lighter versions of your favorite sweets. Whether it's a frozen pie, a parfait, or a layered trifle, frozen yogurt seamlessly integrates into recipes, offering a guilt-free indulgence.

As a Topping

Dollop frozen yogurt atop warm pies, fresh fruit, or even waffles for a delightful contrast of temperatures and textures. This versatile topping adds a creamy, tangy twist to any dessert, enhancing flavors and adding a healthful note.
