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.

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.

Just made this and just out of the blender it tasted soo heavenly.. it had the taste of chocolate and u can taste the bananas too
my dad walked in and he tasted it too and he even said it tastes so good
only one thing my batter did not get thick it was liquidy
it was bc the yogurt had water in it
i will be straining it in the next recipe
still love this one tho <3

Hi Gemma,

Can sweetened condensed milk be used in this recipe instead of honey? Thanks.

Hello, I have a mixer but not a blender.can i melt the bananas with the fork until they are pulp, mix them all together and put them to freezer; maybe I mix them twice as in classic ice creams; will work or become very hard;

I tried the recipe and my frozen yogurt came out too liquidy. Why?

BTW, i love your peanut butter cookie recipe. It came out fabulously.

I’m in college so I don’t have access to a food processor. Is there a way I can make this using a blender or potato masher?

The recipe sounds delicious i was wondering if it could be made in individual icecream sticks instead of scoopable?
