Frozen yogurt is one of those desserts that I struggle to find dairy-free options for in stores. Luckily, it is easy to make at home, from scratch with less than a handful of simple ingredients!

Ingredient Notes

  • Vegan Greek-style Yogurt: I use Alpro protein yogurt, but any unsweetened vegan yogurt such as thick coconut yogurt will work too. If using a thinner vegan plain yogurt, note that the consistency won't be as creamy.
  • Vegan Condensed Milk: Sweetened condensed coconut milk acts as the sweetener and helps the yogurt from freezing too solid.
  • Vanilla Extract: This adds a gorgeous flavor to the dessert, you can use vanilla bean paste or a real vanilla pod with the seeds scraped out if you want to go extra gourmet!
  • Berry Coulis: This homemade coulis is completely optional, feel free to leave it out for a plain froyo, or replace it with other flavors listed below in the "Variations" section.

🍒 Variations

While the base 3-ingredient frozen yogurt recipe is delicious enough to enjoy on its own, there are so many ways you can add your favorite flavors to it! Here are some ideas:

  • Different Fruit: Try strawberry coulis, mango curd, lemon curd, pineapple curd, lime curd, blueberry curd, or raspberry curd. You can also serve it plain with some fresh fruit on the side.
  • Nut Butter: Add 2 tablespoons of peanut butter or almond butter to the mixture before churning, or swirl it through the froyo towards the last 5 mins of churning.
  • Chocolate Froyo: Add 2-3 tablespoons of cocoa powder to the mixture before churning, or swirl with homemade nutella for a chocolate hazelnut twist.
  • Cherry Garcia: Add dark cherries and dark chocolate chunks to the ice cream machine towards the last 5 minutes of churning.
  • Caramel: Add a swirl of caramel sauce or date caramel and a sprinkle of roasted peanuts and chocolate chunks for a Snickers situation!
  • Froyo Cookie Sandwich: Sandwich the froyo between 2 vegan cookies of your choice for a delicious portable summer treat!

💬 FAQs

Can I make frozen yogurt without an ice cream maker?

Yes! You can make it using the ice cube tray and blender method. You can also use a Ninja creami if you own one.

Pour the yogurt mixture into ice cube trays and freeze for several hours until solid. Transfer the frozen yogurt cubes into a high-speed blender and blitz until smooth and creamy. You may need a splash of non-dairy milk or extra yogurt to get things moving. Then serve immediately as soft-serve, or let it sit back in the freezer for 1-2 hours for a firmer scoop.

How should I store dairy-free frozen yogurt?

Transfer it to a sealed freezer-safe container or loaf pan. Seal the surface of the frozen yogurt with a sheet of parchment before placing the lid or plastic wrap over it. This will help prevent ice crystals from forming!

Description

This easy vanilla vegan frozen yogurt comes together with 3 main ingredients and an optional homemade berry coulis swirl. With the perfect creamy texture and tangy yogurt taste, it has a no-churn option and can be easily customized with different flavors.

Ingredients

  • 800 g (3 ⅓ cups) vegan Greek-style yogurt, *see note 1
  • 320 g (11 oz) vegan condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 120 g (½ cup) berry coulis, optional

Instructions

  • Prepare: Freeze your ice cream maker bowl for at least 12 hours (ideally 24 hours) before making the recipe. 
  • Make the base: In a large bowl, combine the yogurt, condensed milk, and vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth.
  • Churn: Transfer it to the frozen bowl of your ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's instructions (usually this can be 25-40 minutes). It's ready when it is super thick and sticks to the arm of the machine. 
    (see recipe notes for a no-churn option)
  • Transfer it to a loaf pan or sealable container.
  • Add coulis: Pour the berry coulis on top, then carefully fold it through the scoops of frozen yogurt using a rubber spatula or spoon. Don't overmix, as you want to keep the swirls of berry sauce throughout.
  • Freeze: Smooth out the top of the froyo with an offset spatula and cover it with a lid or some parchment paper. Freeze for 2-3 hours until solid or for soft serve consistency you can serve it straight from the machine.
  • Storage: Store it in an airtight container or loaf pan sealed with plastic wrap or a sheet of parchment in the freezer. It is best served within 2-3 weeks.
    I recommend taking it out of the freezer to rest at room temperature for 10 minutes before diving in for the perfect scoops!

Notes

  1. Greek-Style Yogurt: Sub with vegan skyr or very thick coconut yogurt. You can also use plain unsweetened soy yogurt, but the consistency won't be as creamy.
  2. No-Churn Option: Pour the yogurt mixture into ice cube trays and freeze for several hours until solid. Transfer the frozen yogurt cubes into a high-speed blender and blitz until smooth and creamy. You may need to add a little non-dairy milk or extra yogurt to get things moving. Then serve immediately as soft-serve, or let it sit back in the freezer for 1-2 hours for a firmer scoop.
