Ok, whipping up my own didn't work. It has a slightly better texture, but still very crunchy. Same for the whip cream version. However, I've discovered that Yoplait Fiber One yogurt freezes very smoothly. So, so far, Whips and Fiber One are the only ones that you can just toss in the freezer and eat them like very firm ice cream later.
Well, I've tried just putting the yogurt in the freezer and it is full of huge ice crystals and hard as a rock. Except for the Whips. I'm trying a few things now - I whipped up some Yoplait Light and froze it and I mixed in a half cup of ff whipped cream and whipped it up and froze that. I'll let you know how they turn out. It was messy to do tho.
My parents often freeze yogurt for a treat, and as others here have observed, some brands definitely perform better than others. I'll have to try the whips, that sound yummy!
I am also wondering if one of the ice cream/frozen yogurt machines would work for freezing store-bought yogurt into yummy soft-serve style frozen yogurt treats? Anyone tried this, or just sticking it in the freezer?
I freeze the non-fat vanilla yogurt from Yoplait in a popsicle tray. My daughter loves them. The greek Yogurt freezes well also. I add flavoring or fruit..stir and spoon into the popsicle trays.....like having a fruitsicle.
I was wondering if anyone knew which yogurts froze well. I know that the Yoplait Whips do. I freeze the chocolate one and treat it like icecream. It's decadent. But I was wondering if any other brands/version freeze well? I've tried the Yoplait Light and it freezes like a rock and has ice crystals all through it. I was wondering if maybe the extra air in the whips was what made them freeze so smoothly. Has anyone tried whipping the yogurt before freezing it? Did it help? Or does anyone know of a brand and/or version that retains a creamy texture when frozen?
