Blueberry Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt - Just a few all natural ingredients and no ice cream machine needed!

Blueberry Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt (No Machine)

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

Blueberry Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts so I thought why couldn’t I have it in a frozen yogurt. The sweetness of the blueberries combined with the creamy cheesecake is divine. There is something about creamy and tangy that I just love in a dessert.

My Frozen Yogurts can be whipped up in just 5 minutes and are made using just a hand full of ingredients. Best of all there’s no ice cream machine required. No Machine Frozen Yogurt means not having to worry about not owning an ice cream machine. I like to make recipes that are accessible to everyone as much as I can. I don’t own an ice cream machine and I’m guessing a lot of you don’t either. What I do own is a food processor.

My food processor is used for a multitude of recipes in my kitchen and I love it. There’s not much it can’t do so when I tried to make my own version of frozen yogurt in it I knew it was up to the challenge. The results are a smooth and creamy Frozen Yogurt that is second to none.

    Hi Gemma,

    I want to make the blueberry yogurt ice cream but i have a couple question. I live in Africa so I don’t have the fresh fruit to freeze and I don’t have the greek yogurt. I do my own yogurt and for the fruit I will use can. So will it work?

    Thank you

    • Gemma Stafford on September 9, 2018 at 2:52 pm

      yes you can used canned no problem. And Yes your own homemade yogurt should work also.

      Best of luck with the recipe.
      Best,
      Gemma.

    Hi Gemma,

    I made the blueberry cheesecake frozen yogurt but it is solid hard. The same happened with the strawberry cheesecake ice-cream. The other ice-creams turned out beautiful. I am thinking it has something to do with the cream cheese in these recipes which make it so hard. Any suggestions?

    Thank you!

    • Gemma Stafford on June 2, 2018 at 3:37 am

      Hi there,
      Tell me about the yogurt you used?
      A natural yogurt has a very high ‘water’ content, and water freezes solid, think ice. Greek yogurt/strained yogurt has had the ‘water’ strained off, and is high in milk fats and solids, and will not freeze hard. The higher the fat content too the better.
      The water content in fruits will also freeze like ice. This is why we use frozen fruits for this froyo. This suspends the ice crystals in the mix and prevents it freezing solid.
      I hope you can find in this what happened. Thank you for being in touch,
      Gemma 🙂

        I used fresh fruit. i will try it with frozen fruit next. I also did not use full fat yogurt. I will try it with full fat yogurt.Thank you!

        • Gemma Stafford on June 6, 2018 at 3:44 am

          Hi Celine,
          Yes, the fresh fruit will freeze like ice, hard.
          The yogurt should be strained natural yogurt, Greek yogurt is an example of this. Not Greek style, strained.
          Thank you for being in touch,
          Gemma 🙂

    I attempted to make this using your homemade yogurt in this recipe, and unfortunately we got soup. Yummy soup, but soup none the less 🙁
    Any suggestions?

    • Gemma Stafford on June 1, 2018 at 2:30 am

      Hi there,
      Yes, the problem is that you would need to strain the yogurt. You do this in a fine sterile cloth, in a sieve, over a bowl in the fridge. This is what Greek yogurt is. It is then low in water, and really thick. Full fat milk gives the best result too. Water freezes hard, like ice, and low water things freeze soft, especially with the little fat.
      i hope this will help,
      Gemma 🙂

    I want to make the Blueberry cheese cake Frozen Yogurt . Do I have to add anything to the blueberries when I puree them?

    • Gemma Stafford on May 31, 2018 at 12:48 pm

      It’s so good :). Yes I like to add a tablespoon of sugar as it stops them from freezing really hard.

      Best,
      Gemma.

    Do you know the nutritional break down of this recipe? Specifically calories and carbs.

    • Gemma Stafford on May 9, 2018 at 6:04 pm

      I don’t Charlotte but if you want to find out I use a website called myfitnesspal.com . It’s really easy to use.

      Best,

    Hi Gemma, thanks for the awesome recipes, i have made this and also the berry fro-you. The problem I have with this one, before I swirl through my bicky and berry puree is that my yoghurt mixture is quite runny making it impossible to swirl, it basically just mixes in. The end result is still amazing, just not swirly as it should be. I’m thinking it’s the yoghurt that I am using, i think it is Greek ‘style’.
    Thanks again, from Aus.

    • Gemma Stafford on February 9, 2018 at 3:32 am

      Hi Shane,
      You hit the nail on the head!
      Greek style yogurt is usually thickened, in some way, so it is just natural yogurt with a setting agent. Greek yogurt is strained. That is the water content has been reduced, so it blends well, and freezes well. The problem is that it is hard to tell which is which, as the Greeks have controlled the use of the name, so some strained yogurts are also called Greek Style!
      So, take a look at the label, the yogurt should say strained, and there should not be any Carrigeenan/agar/gelatin in the mix, it should just be natural yogurt.
      Thank you for this input, it is confusing,
      Gemma 🙂

    I made the frozen yoghurt and was really excited. I used low fat yoghurt. However my frozen yoghurt was icy and wasn’t smooth at all as in the video. Also the mixture itself was really watery and not creamy. Could u please tell me where I went wrong as I have 1 pint of frozen yoghurt now and I don’t think it tastes as good as yours.

    • Gemma Stafford on September 1, 2017 at 3:37 am

      hi there,
      It sounds like you use a natural yogurt, not a strained/greek yogurt.
      Regular yogurt has a high water content, and water freezes like ice. if you cannot get Greek/Strained yogurt you can strain it yourself. Do not use greek Style yogurts, these have just been thickened, not strained.
      Place a sterile cloth in a sieve, over a bowl in the fridge. Pour in the yogurt and allor it to strain over about 8 hours. the whey will drain away (water) and you will have a thick curd, this is what you use for froyo.
      I hope this helps,
      Gemma 🙂

  8. Shruthi Achut on July 20, 2017 at 12:15 am

    We can use these fruit homemade yoghurts for icing our homemade cakes, can’t we ?

    • Gemma Stafford on July 20, 2017 at 1:56 am

      Hi Shruthi,
      NO!
      This is frozen, it will melt, unless you are using it on a frozen dessert/cake.
      Yogurt would really not usually be used in a frosting. Stick to the conventional ones, like buttercream frosting, fondant, royal icing, water icing/glaze, chocolate etc,
      Gemma 🙂

    This is delicious (if you like cheesecake, of course). I made 1/2 a recipe and put it into ice pop molds to freeze. It tasted just like blueberry cheesecake. Thanks for the inspiration and recipes, Gemma!

    • Gemma Stafford on May 31, 2017 at 8:15 am

      Hi there,
      Yes, lots of these recipes will make perfect popsicles. Good job you,
      Gemma 🙂
