How to Make Frozen Yogurt

There are two main ways of making frozen yogurt. The one you choose depends mainly on whether or not you have an ice cream maker at home. An ice cream maker speeds up the freezing process so the frozen yogurt can be prepared quickly. On the other hand, it is a major investment and you might be apprehensive about the cost. You don’t need to worry, as you can still make tasty frozen yogurt without an ice cream maker.

Listed below are the steps you have to follow.

Making Frozen Yogurt

Still Freezing:

The process by which you make frozen yogurt without an ice cream maker is known as “still freezing”. For this, you have to combine all the ingredients you are using (we will come to that later). Then, start beating them well. You have to make sure that the ingredients are mixed well.

They don’t usually reach the desired level of thickness till you give the process its due time. At least after the second beat you can say that the mixture is in a consumable state. Once this is done, just place the mixture in the freezer and you’re good to go.

The only drawback to this method is the lack of consistency. The thickness and texture of the frozen yogurt depends hugely on how long it has been mixed.
When talking about beating the ingredients together, you can opt for one of two approaches:

Using a Mixer:

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and wrap it up with foil. Place the bowl in the freezer for a couple of hours so that the mixture hardens. Then, use a mixer to beat the mixture a couple of times. Your frozen yogurt is ready.

Using a Food Processor:

You also have the choice of using a food processor to beat the mixture instead of a mixer. Whichever machine you have available will do the trick. Even the process remains the same. The only difference is that you have to break the frozen mixture before it can be put into the food processor.

Either way, you will end up with a bowl of wholesome, pure frozen yogurt you can consume right away. Garnish it with nuts or pieces of fruit, depending on your personal preference.

You can serve the yogurt as soon as you have finished beating it. Also, you can place it in the freezer to freeze it some more before serving.
