How to make a delicious homemade frozen yogurt without ice cream maker

  • The peculiarity of this frozen yogurt is that it does not contain refined sugars but only natural, honey and of course the sweetener present naturally in the fruit; honey, which can be replaced with agave, also serves to make the ice cream more creamy so that it can be eaten with a spoon;
  • I use Greek yogurt because it is more compact and better to be processed and it is also richer in protein so this means it can also be consumed as a main meal;
  • You can use both normal white yogurt and any kind of fruit yogurt for an even more summery flavor, however, that, unlike Greek yogurt, normal yogurt tends to be less creamy;
  • It is possible to use frozen fruit to reduce the resting time in the freezer but be careful that some types of fruit once frozen release high quantities of water that may have an impact on the final result;
  • There is no limit to the imagination: you can add spreadable chocolate, peanut butter, dried fruit, fruit of all kinds. Just give space to fantasy and be led by your personal taste;
  • The chosen sweetener can vary in quantity based on the result you want but white sugar but regular sugar should never be used because frozen yogurt becomes less creamy;
  • The same frozen yogurt can be prepared with natural and lactose-free yogurt but the result may be different, since lactose free products lack in milk proteins that allow yogurt to compact well;
  • Once prepared, you can store the frozen yogurt directly in the freezer and store it within and not more than one month after the preparation date.
