With gorgeous warm weather and a big desire to spend time outside in the spring and summer months, I’m all about simple, healthy desserts. And there’s not much that’s easier than this strawberry frozen yogurt recipe. 3 ingredients. 30 seconds. Done.

Most of you know that I love (or I might be slightly obsessed with) my Vitamix. I purchased my first Vitamix years before I ever started Downshiftology as the impetus to adopt healthier eating habits – and it worked.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

From smoothies, to soups, to dips, to nut milks and nut butters I pretty much use my Vitamix for everything. It’s been a wise investment because it’s one machine that can do oh, so many things. And that means less appliances and less clutter in the kitchen (which makes my minimalist brain happy).

Did I also mention it can do desserts? It can. And fast. Like today’s super easy frozen yogurt recipe.

How To Make Frozen Yogurt (without an Ice Cream Machine)

To make homemade strawberry frozen yogurt just add one cup of yogurt, one pound of frozen strawberries and a little honey or maple syrup to your Vitamix. Then, blend on high and use the tamper to push the frozen berries into the blade. In 30 seconds, you’re done. Yes, it really is that easy.

The frozen yogurt will be the consistency of soft serve at this point or the typical “fro yo” and if you like it soft then eat it right away. But if you’d like to firm it up a little, just add it to a storage container and freeze for an hour or two.

Is Frozen Yogurt Healthy?

Let’s be clear that not all frozen yogurt is created equal. This homemade version is exponentially healthier than anything you can buy in the supermarket or frozen yogurt shop. And that’s because you can control the ingredients and the amount of sugar.

My version of strawberry frozen yogurt has three ingredients – yogurt, strawberries and honey.

For a frozen yogurt shop like Yogurtland (a popular franchise in Southern California) their strawberry frozen yogurt has 16 ingredients – Pasteurized and Cultured Skim Milk, Sugar, Strawberries, Dextrose, Whey, Maltodextrin, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Vegetable Mono & Diglycerides, Guar Gum, Carrageenan, Cellulose Gum, Natural Flavors, Ascorbic Acid, Citric Acid and Red 40.

That makes me cringe. Especially as there’s more sugar than actually strawberries in their frozen yogurt. And those fillers, emulsifiers and red food dye – yuck.

Which Type of Yogurt is Best to Use?

I’m using my homemade yogurt in this recipe, but you could use store-bought yogurt as well. Just look for a plain version with no added sugar. I always grab a grass-fed dairy yogurt but regular or Greek yogurt both work, it’s totally up to you.

Can You Make this Frozen Yogurt Recipe Dairy-free and Vegan?

Absolutely! Just use a dairy-free yogurt and swap maple syrup or another sweetener for the honey.

Lisa's Tips

  • Be careful not to over-blend the frozen yogurt. It’ll get quite soft if you blend it too long.
  • Have fun making ALL of your favorite frozen yogurt flavors by switching up the frozen fruit. After strawberry, my next favorite is mango – yum!
  • The Vitamix blender I use is the Ascent A3500 model and I absolutely love it. Make sure to check out all my other Vitamix recipes and see what I make with it.

  2. I made this strawberry frozen yogurt on the weekend and it was amazing. I don’t have a Vitamix but have ninja 5 blade blender and it took me less than 5 minutes to make. Even my parents loved it had them over for dinner and made it as a dessert, I used greek yogurt and fresh strawberry that I’ve frozen the day before.I will be definitely doing this recipe often this summer very refreshing.Thanks, Lisa.

  3. On my first attempt, my vitamix (1.2L) stop hafway -I think I overload it. But I still  manage to have frozen yougurt with a few chunky strawberries 😝. On my second attempt, I use half of the amount and my frozen yougurt is a bit on a soft side…but still yummy. Thanks for the recipe.

    And love your  cooking style. Hello from Ireland🍀

    • You can definitely use your Vitamix with frozen fruits – it works great! I have both the 64oz and 48oz containers, but I still tend to use my 64oz more. :) Thanks so much – I’m happy you’re enjoying my recipes. And hugs to Ireland! x
