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.

A food processor is a machine, so the title of this receipe is misleading.
We don’t have one, or a blender–used to, but the food proceessor was stolen during a church supper, and the blender died. All new ones seem to be made in China (yes, including Vitamix), so purchasing a new machine is out.

Otherwise the frozen yogurt seems like fun. Just chane the name of the receipe, please.

This is a fabulous recipe. I have tried making “banana” ice cream before and the banana is always too strong for me. The addition of plain yogurt solved that problem! Brilliant! I used dutched processed cocoa and good vanilla. I just froze some fresh blueberries we picked so I can try to the fruit version. Gemma never steers you wrong.

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,

Daniya

This is just miraculous! So easy to do, intense chocolate flavour, and it’s even healthy!

Will I be able to leave out the banana’s in this recipe? Can’t eat banana’s at the moment and want to make just plain chocolate frozen yogurt.

Do you know if chocolate protein powder can be added to this recipe?

Can I use vanilla yogurt instead of plain yogurt? Will that change the flavor of the frozen yogurt? Thanks!

The total time is not really 5 minutes because you say to freeze for a minimum of 6 hours.

Will using liquid stevia, monk fruit, or liquid Truvia work as well as honey or maple syrup?

GAH! I was on a roll after finding a great sale on high protein Greek yogurt —I’ve made blueberry, strawberry, and now, making the banana chocolate I realize I goofed and used fresh bananas instead of frozen. Help! How do I salvage it to be a decent froyo? Do I pour it into popsicle molds? Do I put the current “soup” in the fridge and add frozen bananas tomorrow? I don’t want to waste what I’ve made so far and I’m not one for smoothies. Please advise, anyone, thank you.
