Sugar Free Frozen Yogurt
During my university days, my friends and I were obsessed with trying out all the froyo joints. Self serve frozen yogurt really took off during this period in my life, to the point that it felt like every week, there was a new shop opening up. We loved it and would hit them up, serve ourselves the yogurt, then load on the toppings.
Since then, it’s been quite a while since I’ve been to one. However, the other week I went by one and was intrigued, hoping to see if there was a low carb option available!
Is frozen yogurt keto?
Although frozen yogurt does contain more protein than most ice creams, it actually contains way more carbs. This is due to the lower fat content, which is replaced with sugar. As such, it isn’t suitable for a keto diet. Many chains offer sugar free varieties, but even then, they still contain far too many net carbs to be keto friendly.
However, making your own is an easy solution. I’ve been meaning to share a sugar free frozen yogurt recipe for quite some time. It can be made with or without an ice cream maker, and it needs just 2 ingredients! It’s low in calories, clocking in at 50 calories per serving!
No sugar and no heavy cream needed, but you’d never tell. The texture is smooth, creamy, and perfectly scoopable. It’s slightly tart and pleasantly sweet, with a subtle vanilla flavor!
I had some friends over the other day and we were craving something sweet and creamy, so I whipped up some of this froyo in my blender and they could NOT believe it was sugar free- It reminded them of Menchies!
How do you make a sugar free frozen yogurt?
- Greek yogurt– Nonfat or traditional Greek yogurt. The non-fat varieties tend to contain a few extra carbs, so be mindful of this if you opt to use that variety.
- Granulated sweetener of choice– I recommend using allulose, as, unlike other keto sweeteners, it doesn’t yield a grainy texture. If you only have monk fruit sweetener or erythritol, those can be used, but you need to ensure everything is VERY well mixed.
- Vanilla extract– Optional, but recommended if you’d prefer a light vanilla flavor.
Start by adding all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisking together, until the sweetener has dissolved. Cover the bowl and refrigerate it for an hour.
Once chilled, pour into your ice cream maker (I used a cuisineart) and churn it until it reaches a soft serve consistency. Serve immediately, or transfer the frozen yogurt into a sealable container and store in the freezer for at least two hours, to ripen.
Can I make frozen yogurt without an ice cream maker?
While an ice cream maker is preferred to make this recipe, it’s not completely necessary, and can be made in a blender.
To make- Add all the ingredients into a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Transfer into several small containers and place in the freezer until solid. Once solid, remove from the freezer and place back into the blender. Blend until your desired consistency and serve immediately.
Tips to make the best low carb frozen yogurt
- If you don’t follow a strict keto or sugar free diet, you can use white or organic white sugar.
- For a more intense vanilla flavor, use a vanilla flavored Greek yogurt. Be sure to keep an eye out for the carb content, as some do contain added sugar.
- I used a Cuisineart ice cream and yogurt maker, and it turns out perfectly each time. Double check the instruction manual of whatever kind you own, as they often have a setting specifically for frozen yogurt recipes.
While I am a fan of the slightly tart vanilla frozen yogurt, here are some other fun flavors to try out!
- Chocolate– Add 2-3 tablespoons of cocoa powder and fold through 1/2 cup sugar free chocolate chips.
- Strawberry– Use a strawberry flavored Greek yogurt OR add 1/2 cup of frozen strawberries.
- Blueberry– Use a blueberry flavored Greek yogurt OR Add 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries.
- Mango– Add 1/4 cup of frozen and chopped mango.
- Peach– Add 1/2 cup frozen peach slices.
Storing and serving keto frozen yogurt
- To store: Homemade frozen yogurt should be stored in a freezer friendly or plastic container. Frozen yogurt will keep well for up to 2 months.
- To serve: For the best texture, remove the yogurt from the freezer 15 minutes before serving, to thaw out slightly.
