  • 3 cups Greek-style yogurt plain, nonfat or low fat
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or agave nectar or 1/4 cup honey


  • Stir all of the ingredients together in a medium to a large bowl. Pour into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's directions, or for about 20- 25 minutes until it reaches a soft-serve consistency.
  • For harder frozen yogurt or to store, place into an airtight container in the freezer. If storing for more than 24 hours, covering the surface with wax paper, and then placing on the lid, will prevent ice crystals from forming on the top.
  • Alternatively, to make vanilla frozen yogurt without an ice cream maker, pour into a wide shallow container and freeze, uncovered for one and a half hours, scraping and mixing every half hour. Once evenly frozen, store in an airtight container with a lid.

    1. Jan, I have but it gets super hard. You’ll need to let it set at room temp for a few minutes before eating.

  1. Could you substitute soy yogurt or any other non-dairy yogurt for the greek yogurt? I made this exactly as you printed and it is delicious but my daughter prefers non-dairy.

      1. Great recipe! I tried this today and it was amazing! I was if it was possible and how I could add fruit puree in this to make it flavoured!

  2. This looks great, but I was wondering what could be used instead of maple syrup or agave nectar? Both are hard to come by where I live, and I’m allergic to honey

    1. Claire, You could use a couple drops of stevia. Coconut sugar is fine but will give the yogurt a draker appearance. Also, organic sugar as a last resort.

    1. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, combine the ingredients, pour them into a wide shallow container and put the container in the freezer, scraping and mixing every half hour.

    1. Addie, If you do, there’s no need to make this recipe. This recipe is from scratch for frozen yogurt. 🙂

  3. I just tried the creamy frozen vanilla yogurt. It is the bomb.My husband even loved it and he isn’t into eating any of my “DIET” food.He almost killed me when I told him afterwards it was yogurt. Now I can’t keep him away from my frozen yogurt.Thank You for this awesome website. I’m so thankful I ran across it when I was on the internet. Keep up with great work.

    1. Lori, OMG, I’m so happy you and your husband enjoyed the frozen yogurt. Thank you so much for the feedback. 🙂

  4. Most people are oblivious to the fact that fast hair growth scalp therapy shampoos (obviously with no sulfates, no parabens and no DEA) exist. Folks are now able to attain longer hair and have more options. For sure worth checking out.
    Whether you’re thinking about alopecia, damaged hair, avoiding hair disorders, fast hair growth, hair and scalp care generally, almost the same ideas become relevant.
    Generally, you have to stay away from hair products and treatments that include chemicals like parabens, DEA and sulfates.
