Through my pregnancy I really dug deep to find creative ways to increase my protein intake (especially since I’m not a huge meat eater). I even created a pinterest board and a full blog post with ideas for recipes during pregnancy. One of the treats that I’m often making is frozen yogurt. It’s the perfect treat after meals or as an afternoon
snack. I have made a few varieties including Strawberry Rhubarb Frozen Yogurt and this Honey Almond Frozen Yogurt. The frozen yogurt comes out perfectly tart and creamy, perfect with a few sweet additions like fruit, nuts or honey.
The process of making this frozen yogurt is quite simple- just combine the ingredient then churn in an ice cream maker. If you don’t own an ice cream maker you can try just freezing the ingredients but they will be a tad less creamy and more icy if you freeze them without churning them.
This light spring treat is a current favorite at our house. What light desserts and treats are you enjoying these days?
Honey Almond Frozen Yogurt
- 2 cups Greek Yogurt
- 2 cups plain yogurt
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 5 tablespoons honey
- 1/3 cup sliced almonds
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- Combine both yogurts, sugar and honey in a large bowl. Add almond extract and almonds, stir well to combine.
- Using a ice cream maker, churn the yogurt until it becomes frozen and creamy. Eat or freeze for a later treat.

This lovely warm-weather treat is right up my alley! It’s definitely time for me to pull my ice cream maker down and try out a frozen yogurt like this one. Every time I’ve made frozen yogurt, I’ve been disappointed in the results, but this one sounds like fool-proof deliciousness! Thanks for sharing!
This one is definitely food proof! It is best when enjoyed right from the ice cream maker. After you freeze it, the yogurt does become more hard and takes a while to defrost. If we freeze it, we let it sit out for an hour or so before we try and scoop it out. Hope that helps!!
Becky, this frozen yogurt sounds so delicious. I’ve made regular ice cream and coconut ice cream in my ice cream maker but somehow never frozen yogurt… it’s time to change that!
And I’ll have to try a coconut ice cream! That sounds fabulous!
That’s the exact machine we have – I LOVE IT! I’m doing no sugar for the next month, but you can bet this is the top of the list when it comes back 😉
I love ours too!! You could totally make this without the sugar and just add almond extract and almonds?! Also, what container do you use to freeze the ice cream when it’s done??
So delicious. I am loving this. The possibilities are endless with this recipe.
Becky, I am loving all of the lighter dishes you have been posting lately (aside from the cinnamon rolls, of course!). All of the flavors have been beautiful. I’m looking forward to trying this frozen yogurt!
Thanks Haley!! It’s been fun to do more seasonal cooking. Lets set a cooking date soon (baby in arms hopefully!!)
Combination of such wonderful flavors!
Hey, which ice cream maker is it? sounds great!
It’s the Cuisanart 2 quart stainless steel ice cream maker.
Have you tried making this, or ice cream with a sweetner rather than sugar? I am womdering if it would work?
I think this would work fine with all honey. I also have a recipe for a cashew based ice cream for which I use only maple syrup to sweeten. Hope that helps!
