Hi Bold Bakers!

Homemade Frozen Yogurt does not mean you have to own an ice cream machine AND you don’t have to mix the yogurt every 30 minutes. By following my recipe you can make Chocolate and Banana Frozen Yogurt in only 5 minutes!

My Chocolate and Banana No Machine Frozen Yogurt recipe has just 5 simple ingredients: fruit, yogurt, honey and natural flavors like vanilla. It contains only natural sugars that come from fruit and honey. It’s a great treat if you are trying to lighten things up and cut calories.

Homemade Frozen Yogurt can be made on any yogurt you prefer. I use greek as it is higher in protein but feel free to use regular or dairy free. I do recommend plain yogurt with no added flavor.

This recipe is fantastic if you find yourself with ripe bananas you need to use up. Just slice and freeze the bananas and then have them to hand whenever you want to make Frozen Yogurt. And remember you can eat this dessert straight away, you don’t have to wait for it to freeze.

If you like this frozen yogurt recipe, I also have great recipes for Cake BatterStrawberryMango & Lime, and Pineapple & Coconut.

Weight Watchers Points, Smart Points, and Nutritional Information are included on each frozen yogurt recipe below.


Add your bananas and the rest of the ingredients into a food processor, blend until smooth and freeze! It could not be simpler. And you don’t end up with icy, hard frozen yogurt. My recipes are triple tested so I made sure the results are smooth, scoopable and delicious.


The honey in this recipe is not just for sweetness; it’s what makes your ice cream scoopable. Sugar in a liquid form is what stops ice crystals forming and keeps it soft.


For Dairy-Free or Vegan Frozen Yogurt recipes, swap out the honey for agave and use a dairy free yogurt like coconut yogurt.

Hey Gemma,

I tried this recipe yesterday and it was AMAZING!! I used plain yogurt and it tasted good without even having to put the thing in the freezer. I did and I also I put some in my popsicle molds and it worked great even like that

Much love and God bless,

Can I make this without a blender or the things stated above? I don’t have any of them. I only have a mixer. And also how can I make this without them.

This is the second time making this recipe. It’s delicious!!!! But here is one problem! The honey does not blend at all and instead it accumulates! The first time I made this recipe, I didn’t freeze them for long so the texture was more mouse-like. The second time, I had learned my lesson so I froze them for almost a day and the texture was just about to get right but the honey was accumulated so I kept blending and the great texture was gone. What should I do about the honey?

I’ve been craving frozen yogurt and with COVID-19 I have not wanted to go to my local yogurt shop. I’d frozen some banana slices last week and decided it was time to try your recipe. OMG, it was so good! Yes, it’s a bit grainy from the cocoa powder (I put in more than the recipe called for because I wanted a very dark chocolate flavor) and possibly because I used fat-free yogurt…and the banana taste is predominant. But it is cold and creamy and delicious in its own right. How wonderful to know that when I want a cool… Read more »

Tried making this with coconut yogurt. It was smooth once all ingredients were mixed, practically mousse-like. Absolutely yummy without it being frozen. However, once frozen yogurt kind of crystallized and was a bit difficult to scoop out of the container. Would it be because of the yogurt? If so, how would I go about straining the yogurt?

I LOVE THIS RECIPE! It’s my go-to recipe whenever I want a sweet treat. I’m vegan so I use golden syrup in place of honey and soya yoghurt in place of dairy and it always turns out perfectly. I’ve tried several variations, like adding peppermint or orange extract and dark chocolate chips (both highly recommended). Thank you Gemma!
