When I received an ice cream maker and dairy free ice cream recipe book for my birthday last year, I was thrilled.  Since then, many experiments have happened with that little piece of equipment and most of them have been successes.  As I have written on here before, I am lactose intolerant, but I can eat cheese and yogurt without any problems.  Knowing that, I went on a search for a frozen yogurt recipe and found this one on Pinterest, of course.  It was pinned from the website 101cookbooks.com.

The site says this yogurt rivals Pinkberry yogurt.  I can’t claim that because there are no Pinkberry stores anywhere close to me, but this is some good frozen yogurt.  It is sweet but still has that tang of yogurt that I really like.  One note about the recipe: it calls to strain the yogurt before freezing it.  I didn’t because there wasn’t enough time and it still turned out great.

vanilla fy

3 cups plain or Greek yogurt

3/4 cup sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract


Mix together all 3 ingredients in a large bowl until the sugar is dissolved.


Refrigerate the mixture for one hour then process in your ice cream maker according to instructions.  That’s it! Easy, peasy!


This was some awesome stuff with the deep dish cookie pie.  Don’t worry because that recipe will be here next Saturday.  Come on back now!
