Saturday Sweets: Homemade Frozen Yogurt

This week I expanded my ice cream making horizons to include frozen yogurt. All I can say is wow! I am sure my waistline is not saying wow (get a grip is fat-free). I started my attempts by combining a few recipes to get a cake batter flavor as my little but and I cannot get enough of cake batter flavors. It was...AWESOME. I cannot wait to try some more flavors like brownie batter, oatmeal cookie, lemonade, and on and on and on. 


  • 1 cup nonfat milk
  • 2 cups fat free half and half (tested with the Land o' Lakes brand)
  • 1 cup fat free plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 - 1 cup of yellow cake mix, sifted if possible
  • sprinkles, brownie bites, candy, etc. for stirring in
  • Combine milk, half and half, plain yogurt, sugar, and cake mix (start with 1/2 cup) in a blender. Blend until well combined.
  • Taste batter (there is nothing raw) to see if you would like more cake batter flavor. 
  • Set blended batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.
  • Pour into ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
  • Add in stir-ins during the last 2 minutes of freezing.
  • Transfer to freezer safe container and freeze until ready to use. It will take on an ice cream texture after it has been in the fridge for a day or two.
What is your favorite frozen yogurt flavor? Who knows, maybe I will try to make it for you!

  1. Hi! My favorite frozen yogurt flavor would have to be Hoopla's yellow cake batter! They don't have it out anymore, but they do have birthday cake which is almost the same but not quite.
