Recipe FAQs

What does no-churn mean?

No churn means no churning is needed. That means that you do not need an ice cream maker to whip up this frozen treat. This helps reduce the prep work, and no special appliances are needed. Simple and easy but with the same great creamy taste.

Which is healthier ice cream or frozen yogurt?

This frozen yogurt is healthier than traditional ice cream. You will find the Greek yogurt adds a good amount of protein to this dessert. Plus you are using honey as the sweetener compared to sugar.

Why is my frozen yogurt so hard?

Comparing frozen yogurt that is not churned compared to a store-bought frozen yogurt, you will find it is a lot harder. You need to allow 5-10 minutes for the yogurt to thaw once you remove it from the freezer. This will help soften up, allowing you to scoop it easier.

Can I use plain yogurt instead of Greek?

If you don’t want to use Greek yogurt you are more than welcome to reach for plain yogurt instead. I just prefer the Greek for the nutrients portion. But, reach for any brand you prefer the flavor of for this froyo banana recipe.

Why do my bananas need to be frozen first?

Bananas are going to become very mushy and gummy if they are not frozen when you toss them in the food processor. The key is a thick and creamy base, and for that, to work you need frozen bananas. Don’t skip that step, or you will run the risk of your froyo not turning out.

Banana Cream Frozen Yogurt


Author: Kim Schob
Course: Desserts
Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Yields 4 Servings
You don’t need a bulky ice cream maker to enjoy delicious frozen treats at home. This homemade frozen yogurt consists of just a few ingredients and doesn’t require any churning or complicated equipment. The secret to success with this recipe is finding the right balance between the tangy Greek yogurt and more mild cream cheese. If you use regular yogurt instead, you may want to use a little more because it is less creamy than Greek varieties.

Ingredients 

Instructions

  • Peel and cut bananas into thin slices. Place banana slices in a plastic freezer safe bag and place in the freezer until frozen.
  • Add yogurt, cream cheese, vanilla extract, and frozen banana slices to powerful blender or food processor and blend until completely smooth. (If necessary, add 2-3 tablespoons of water to the blender to loosen the mixture).
  • While blending, drizzle in honey until thoroughly combined with other ingredients. Once blended, taste mixture and add more honey, if desired.
  • Transfer contents of blender to a freezer safe dish and cover tightly. Place in freezer for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.
  • To serve, remove from freezer and let sit on the counter for 5-10 minutes to soften. Scoop into individual chilled serving dishes and garnish with slices of fresh banana or other favorite toppings.

Notes

Tip: Regular vanilla extract will affect the color of this dish. To prevent this, choose a clear vanilla extract instead. However, be sure to read labels carefully because most clear extracts are imitation. Optional Toppings: Fresh banana slices, Shredded coconut, Chocolate sauce, Crushed graham crackers, Crushed nuts

    What a lovely treat! I always have these ingredients and I didn’t realize that I could make this. Thanks for the hint!

  3. Ooh, Greek yogurt, I haven’t tried this but I can tell it would be delicious.. It would be perfect for a weekend night snack or something. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Wow Kim,
    This looks amazing and not too difficult for even me to make. Question though, Greek Yogurt and I dont get along at all, so can I replace it with unflavored Plain yogurt?
