3-Ingredient Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Jun 7, 2016

Frozen yogurt is a perfect summer treat. You can make it with whatever fruit happens to be in season. Crush the fruit if it’s soft enough, or simmer with sugar until it’s soft enough to mash.

You Will Need:

  • 2 cups hulled, halved strawberries
  • 1/4-1/2 cup sugar (less if you’re using sweetened yogurt)
  • 2 cups plain or vanilla yogurt


In a small saucepan, bring the strawberries and sugar to a simmer, stirring until the berries soften, mashing some of them with a potato masher or fork. Set aside to cool completely, then stir into the yogurt.

Chill the mixture until it’s nice and cold, and freeze in an ice cream machine according to the manufacturer’s directions.

Makes about 1 pint.
