Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

May 17, 2015

After months of deliberation, we finally purchased an ice cream maker. Yey! Naturally, we had to test it right away and this frozen yogurt was the first frozen treat churned by the new member of our kitchen family.

We got the Cuisinart ICE-30BCFR Frozen Yogurt, Ice Cream and Sorbet Maker. It was on sale at half the price so it was kind of easier to hit the Checkout button on this little machine. So far, I've made four frozen desserts with it, the recipes of which will be uploaded this week. So I guess it's going to be Ice Cream Week on The Elba Diaries.

"Why strawberry frozen yogurt?" you may ask. Well, when the machine arrived, we only had ingredients for this frozen yogurt so in order to test it right away, this is what we made.

The good thing about making your own frozen yogurt (and any dessert or meal for that matter) is that you know exactly what is in it. You know what's in the food you're eating and you can choose to include only the ingredients that you like, which is why I made a couple of boozy flavors aside from this one too. Hihi. Anyway, here's the recipe. Easy peasy.

Very Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Print Recipe
Recipe adapted from The Cuisinart Recipe Booklet, makes 14 1/2-cup servings
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 cups vanilla yogurt
  • 18 ounces strawberries, pureed
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, use a hand mixer or whisk to combine the milk and granulated sugar until the sugar is dissolved, about 1-2 minutes.
  2. Stir in the yogurt, berry puree, and extract. Cool the mixture in the fridge, preferably overnight. Many ice cream machines require that the freezer bowl be frozen before using so check your ice cream model to make sure.
  3. Once the mixture is cold, turn the ice cream machine on; pour the mixer into the freezer bowl of your ice cream maker, and let mix until thickened, about 20 to 25 minutes, depending on your ice cream machine model.
  4. The frozen yogurt will have a soft, creamy texture. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer the frozen yogurt to an airtight container and place in freezer for about 2 hours.
  5. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
