There are several recipes you can find online for frozen green yogurt. The only thing is when you freeze it you have to set it out for a little while before you can consume it. It freezes like a rock so I recommend doing it in serving size containers, and by experience if you use tuber ware, leave room for expansion. I love sweet frog so I wanted to be able to have the experience in my own home and be in control so I tried it. I have cheesecake (cream cheese) flavor in my freezer now and I love it with strawberries or blackberries.
I have frozen it successfully in an icecream freezer. I am going to try using my vitamix to either process frozen dollops of Greek yogurt, or icecubes and fresh Greek yogurt to see if I can get the kind of frozen dessert that they show on the Tv presentations. Not sure which method will give the best results.
When you freeze it, it freezes too solid to be able to eat with a spoon. I have had success with dropping it onto wax paper on a cookie sheet in small quarter-diameter drops and freezing it, then I can just eat them piece by piece. It has a texture similar to a frozen banana, where it isn't crunchy like ice but it is not malleable. To make the drops easier to form, I put the yogurt in a plastic bag, cut off a bottom corner and squeezed it out like a pastry bag.
Has anyone had success when freezing Greek yogurt to be able to eat it like, well, frozen yogurt (or like ice cream, I guess)? The company, Fage, said they do not recommend freezing because it changes the consistancy of it when it thaws, but the only thawing it would do is in my tummy. Hehe! Anyone tried making your own frozen Greek yogurt?
