Make Your Own Protein Fro-Yo | 4 Ingredients and 0 Fat

Homemade 4-Ingredient Frozen Yoghurt

We’re all guilty of craving that delicious frozen treat from the freezer, whether we only have a scoop or eat the entire tub. Ice-cream is brilliant but Frozen yoghurt (Fro-Yo) is just as good!

Follow this simple recipe to make a healthy, zero fat, protein packed treat at home! Great for when it’s a hot summer day or you’re just craving something sweet and chilly. This recipe is extremely customisable and you can make a bunch of flavours.


Ingredients

  • 2 Cups / 500g low-fat or 0% greek yoghurt
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 a vanilla bean or 1.5 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • A splash of skimmed milk (for consistency)
  • [Optional] Protein powder
  • [Optional] Frozen fruit

Directions

  1. Combine the Greek yoghurt and honey in a bowl and mix until even
  2. Either scrap the seeds from inside the vanilla bean into the mix or add the vanilla extract, continue to mix until even consistency.
  3. Transfer the mixture into a zip-lock bag
  4. Laying the bag flat, press and spread the mixture out evenly in the bag removing all the air and ensuring a thin even layer.
  5. Lay the bag flat in a freezer and leave for about 3 hours (dependant on freezer) or until almost solid
  6. Place the now semi-frozen mixture into a food blender and blend until smooth. If the mixture seems too thick or isn’t blending add a splash of milk.
  7. Transfer the mix into a container and freeze for a further 1 – 2 hours or until firm and scoopable.
  8. Serve with your choice of toppings!

Optional Extras

Now the optional extras below will most likely change the consistency of the mixture so may require a little more milk. The flavours of fruit/protein may also not go with the vanilla extract so think about leaving out the vanilla if you want a different flavour!

  • Protein powder – You can add a scoop of your chosen flavour of protein powder to the mix to really pack this treat with protein! Add the protein either during the mixing stage or blending stage.
  • Frozen fruit – Want to have a slightly sweet and summery fro-yo? Just add frozen fruit!
    • Pre-chop the fruit and freeze, once frozen add during the blending stage.
