You need this two-ingredient greek yogurt ice cream in your life

Who knew greek yogurt could make such a creamy ice cream? I didn’t. But check out this beauty.Andit’s takes two ingredients. TWO.

greek yogurt ice cream recipe

 

Greek Yogurt Ice Cream

  • 3 cups Greek yogurt
  • 3/4 c. sugar

Combine these ingredients and let them sit for about an hour so the sugar dissolves. Then, dump them in your ice cream maker (this is what I have) and follow directions according to your machine. It took about 20 minutes for mine to freeze.

Devour. I put diced mangos on top of mine. I highly recommend fruity toppings. greek yogurt ice cream

A few recipe notes:

  • I don’t think this is exactly like Pinkberry or Red Mango, meaning I could easily remember that I was eating frozen Greek yogurt (obviously). I think I might experiment with xanthum gum though since it works wonders at creating creamy textures.
  • I would like to try this with a less refined sugar at some point.
  • I had a lot left over so I stuck it in a tupperware, pressed saran wrap on the surface, and then put the lid on. Let it soften at room temperature for about 10 minutes before serving and it’s fantastic.

    Ha ha…I made fresh pineapple sorbet today and was going to hopefully do a post on it tonight. It’s not the same as frozen yogurt, but I did used raw cane sugar in place of white sugar – I can’t find sucanant anywhere. I haven’t used it a lot so I’m no expert, but to me it was sweeter. The recipe called for 3/4 c. sugar and I only used 1/4 c. But I did also have the sugar from the fruit to help sweeten it.

    This looks really good though. I wonder how it would be if you pureed some fresh fruit and mixed it in before putting it in the ice cream maker?

      oooh, I can’t wait for that recipe! I’ve never made sorbet but I’m newly obsessed and buy it at Whole Foods way too often.

      I bet it would be good with pureed fruit (and then maybe no sugar at all!). I’ll try it next time!

    Philly is home to the first Yogorino (http://www.babyyogurt.com/filosofia.asp) in the US and I’m totally obsessed with it. It is made with organic non-fat milk and has probiotic cultures. It only comes in one flavor but there are a ton of topping choices (my favorite is blackberry and coconut). The shop is conveniently located on my frequented run and may just happen to end up as dinner for me…

      I wish I’d know about that when I was in Philly a few months ago. We’ll probably be back there sometime this year so I’ll keep that in mind. Thanks!

    Just found your blog and I absolutely love it! Gosh dang it I wish I had an ice cream maker…why do I have to be a college student?!

    Hey girlie!! The best option would just be pure cane sugar. Sucanat would be super flavorful..it might be really delicious!!! However, if you just want the sweetness and no flavor change, I would use pure cane sugar. Looks yummy!! I’ve never heard of Red Mango and have never had Pinkberry! eeeek 😉 You neeeed to try champagne mangos if you haven’t!!! SO delicious xo

      Thanks for the helpful info!!

      What?? You’ve had other fro-yo though, right?

      I thought a bought a champagne mango this past weekend at whole foods, but when I checked out they told me it was a papaya. I still don’t know what it is!

    That looks amazing – I wish I had an ice cream maker! I use guar gum and xantham gum in my smoothies and just 1/8 tsp of each make them ridiculously creamy. A little goes a long way!

    I made this tonight. My taste buds thank you. I love reading this blog, even though I have to look up half the things you all talk about (xantham gum?… I have no idea…). And while I’m commenting, can someone tell me the appeal of Almond Butter? I bought some and I just don’t get it. I’m always up to trying new/healthy meals, but that doesn’t mean I’m taking Cafe Rio off my speed dial anytime soon 🙂

    Trust me, when I first started reading food blogs, I had no idea what half the stuff was either! 🙂

    When I first tried almond butter, I thought the same thing. Eh? What’s the big deal? I finished the jar and quickly went back to peanut butter. But I eat a LOT of peanut butter…and was kind of sick of it (if that’s even possible) and bought another jar of almond butter and LOVED it. I think it probably grows on you and perhaps people just like it as a nice alternative. But some people really do like it better than peanut butter

    I wish I had Cafe Rio in W-S. sniff sniff. 🙁
