Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Recipe | JustOneCookbook.com

I made this delicious Strawberry Frozen Yogurt recipe awhile back and was worried the strawberry season might be over before I had a chance to share on Just One Cookbook.  I am glad that there are still plenty of strawberries in the stores so you definitely have to try this recipe if you love homemade fruity frozen yogurt.

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt | JustOneCookbook.com

When I saw this recipe at Lynna’s blog, Hearts in My Oven, I knew I have to make it for my family since my daughter loves strawberry.  Compared to the Blueberry Frozen Yogurt, the texture of the strawberry frozen yogurt was really smooth and creamy.  It didn’t get icy at all even being stored in the freezer for over a week.  I used organic strawberries (really sweet and flavorful!) and the end result was very popular among my children and their friends.  I’d highly recommend using organic strawberries if you can still find them.  The best part about this recipe is that it’s super easy to make!!

This Strawberry Frozen Yogurt is my last frozen treat I’ll share this year.  I am really proud that I used my ice cream maker quite a bit this summer creating frozen treats for the family.  In the middle of the summer, I was  a bit worried that I might have shared too many ice cream recipes.  Hope you enjoyed my ice cream posts!

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 2 Quarts
  • 3 cups (1 lb/450g) strawberries
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup full fat plain yogurt
  • ½ cup sour cream
  1. Rinse the strawberries under cold water and use the point of the knife to remove the hull out of the tops. When you have big strawberries, cut them in half.
  2. Blend strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and salt in blender until well combined.
  3. Add yogurt and sour cream and blend until well combined.
  4. Process the mixture in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions (usually about 25 minutes). Transfer the frozen yogurt to an airtight container and freeze it for several hours before serving.
  5. If you do not have an ice cream maker, then transfer the mixture to a container and put it in a freezer. Stir every few hours (3-4 times) to break up the ice crystals until it’s completely frozen.

  • Baker Street August 30, 2012, 12:18 am

    strawberry season is over for me. they just disappeared when I wasn’t looking! :( but I think I’ll give this a try with blueberries! It looks so creamy and delicious! Love berry yogurt.

  • amy @ uTryIt August 30, 2012, 12:29 am

    What a beautiful dessert! Yes, I’m so glad I can still find strawberries at the store….but then since my blender broke down a few weeks ago when I made my kids’ favorite smoothie…I don’t have a blender to make this frozen treat. :( Guess I better go replace it soon.

  • Ann@Anncoo Journal August 30, 2012, 1:08 am

    I love strawberry! I still see a lot of Australian strawberries around and definitely love to try this yummy dessert for sure.

  • Holly | Beyond Kimchee August 30, 2012, 2:43 am

    What a delightful light strawberry dessert? Ingredients are things we normally have and all you need is the fresh strawberries. My family would love it. Thanks for sharing.

  • Ridwan August 30, 2012, 3:42 am

    The color tell it all,looks perfectly YUMMY !!

  • Renata August 30, 2012, 3:47 am

    I just love this yogurt ice cream! I’ve been using homemade yogurt for so many recipes! Strawberry season will begin shortly here and I can’t wait to try it! Your photos are a feast for the eyes!

  • Belinda @zomppa August 30, 2012, 4:00 am

    Better make good use of those strawberries while still around! Perfect way to enjoy them.

  • Esther August 30, 2012, 4:06 am

    Nami, you are rite, this sounds very easy. Sigh…times like this, i really wish i have a icecream maker haha but since i dont have one in the first place, i shall try this with the manual way :) love your food styling, always so pretty and creative, i always learn some new ways from your photos.

  • Ramona August 30, 2012, 4:06 am

    This is such a creamy fantastic recipe! Makes me feel cooler just looking at the pictures. :) Hope you’re having a great week Nami!

  • Holly August 30, 2012, 4:23 am

    Don’t be afraid that you have posted too many ice cream recipes. I’ve enjoyed every one of them! You definitely are more talented in the dessert department than you think you are, and I wouldn’t mind seeing more frozen dessert recipes, even in the winter! Some of your ideas may even end up in our restaurant’s dessert menu.

  • Hotly Spiced August 30, 2012, 4:27 am

    What a beautiful colour and your recipe is so timely given that in just a couple of days we will head into Spring. So excited. Can’t wait. And what a pretty colour your yoghurt is xx

  • Sandra August 30, 2012, 5:03 am

    This is a perfect ode to summer Nami. I enjoy all of your posts seasonal or not. I also appreciate how conscientious you are about the timing.

  • Blackswan August 30, 2012, 5:14 am

    Wow, u’re really making full use of your ice-cream maker! Love your series of desserts :)

  • Lan | angry asian August 30, 2012, 5:20 am

    the color is so gorgeous, i wish it was still in season here, i miss having fresh strawberries in my smoothies in the AM. this will have to be bookmarked for next spring.

  • Nazneen|Coffee and Crumpets August 30, 2012, 5:22 am

    I would’ve eaten it straight from the blender! I love the colour of strawberry desserts, especially ice creams and yoghurts. They’re usually my favourite flavour. Love how beautifully yours came out. I should really make an effort to dust off my ice cream maker…maybe.


  • Lilium August 30, 2012, 5:39 am

    This looks super easy!

  • Kristy August 30, 2012, 6:00 am

    I don’t think there’s ever such a thing as too much ice cream! Especially strawberry, my favorite. Glad to know I’m not the only one posting week’s later too! :)

  • Sandra's Easy Cooking August 30, 2012, 6:18 am

    Oh I eat ice cream even in the winter time so this is not late for me at all:) Tasty recipe, great styling and wonderful pictures Nami! You done it again!!!

  • Helene Dsouza I Masala Herb August 30, 2012, 7:00 am

    nah its not too late Nami! In fact the strawberry “season” will start here soon. I just wished I had an Ice cream maker, it would be much easier…

    Nice shots by the way!

    Wish u a nice day Nami. ;)

  • Anna @ Crunchy Creamy Sweet August 30, 2012, 7:39 am

    So easy yet so delicious! My kiddos love frozen yogurt too!

  • Elizabeth@ Food Ramblings August 30, 2012, 7:58 am

    The pictures are beautiful– yum strawberries!!

  • Laura (Tutti Dolci) August 30, 2012, 8:01 am

    This yogurt is so beautiful, Nami! I love your styling – you inspire me! :)

  • Jeannie August 30, 2012, 8:20 am

    I can still see strawberries in the stores but they are very expensive! I shall just admire and drool over your lovely yoghurt :D It is indeed very creamy and looks like ice-cream!

  • Denise Browning August 30, 2012, 8:24 am

    Gorgeous picture!!!!! Please, send me some yogurt… ;)

  • A_Boleyn August 30, 2012, 8:25 am

    Between the pictures of the frozen yogurt and the strawberries themselves … a very tempting frozen treat to end the summer with.

  • Terris (Free Eats) August 30, 2012, 8:30 am

    This just looks so beautiful and refreshing. Isn’t it funny how easy it is to make homemade ice cream and frozen yogurt? So many people think it is really time consuming, when it’s not. Thanks for breaking it down and inspiring people to give it a try! Hope you are doing well. Thought of you this weekend when I was visiting a friend in Half Moon Bay. Had great sushi at Sushi on Main. Take care!

  • Elizabeth @Mango_Queen August 30, 2012, 8:38 am

    I love how you gave us a step by step process of this strawberry frozen yogurt. It looks easier than it seems. And of course, your photos are amazing. Now I’m going to go the store and get some more strawberries. Don’t worry about the timing – no matter what time of the year, we always find strawberries in the supermarkets. Thanks for sharing this, Nami! Hope your summer was good. Have a fun back to school week!

  • Jenny August 30, 2012, 8:42 am

    never get tired of icecream recipes Nami! love this, probably could use other fruit as well…although that looks utterly delicious!

  • Candice August 30, 2012, 8:44 am

    Beautiful photos, Nami! You done it again! I’m so happy to hear this strawberry yogurt can be made without an ice cream machine. =) The fiance will love this…he likes all things strawberry.

  • Laura @ Family Spice August 30, 2012, 8:58 am

    We’ve got a hot week this week and my kids would love to dive into this! I did not use my ice cream maker as much as I wanted to this year. But, it’s still hot and we still have time!

  • Andrea August 30, 2012, 9:00 am

    Nami, this is one beautiful post, the colors are outstanding and the recipe sounds delectable. So glad that you added the Strawberry Frozen Yogurt to your blog, since there are still late season strawberries available around here, and since I have not stashed away my ice cream maker yet, this will be a perfect “end of summer treat” for the family. Love your step-by-step instructions too – so gald that I am not the only one who did a “strawberry post” at the end of August.

  • Ashley August 30, 2012, 9:07 am

    Mmmmm! I love all the fresh strawberries that summer gives us, and I love then even more in this form ;) lovely job!

  • Valerie Brunmeier August 30, 2012, 10:04 am

    I’m in love with frozen yogurt! This is so beautiful with the fresh berries and just perfect for the holiday weekend!

  • Caroline August 30, 2012, 10:31 am

    AMAZING. This looks incredible, Nami! Also, I’m a little obsessed (understatement) with all of your dishes. The ice cream looks too cute in those stacked metal bowls. :)

  • Choc Chip Uru August 30, 2012, 11:24 am

    It looks so refreshing my friend and that pink colour is lovely :)

  • Kitty August 30, 2012, 1:58 pm

    What a great, easy to make recipe. Looks so tasty! Going to keep this recipe on file for when our strawberries come ripe in the spring.

  • rebecca August 30, 2012, 2:35 pm

    looks divine and look forward to seeing your risotto

  • Kate August 30, 2012, 5:24 pm

    I am a huge fan of frozen yogurt. The flavor of the good stuff just can’t be beat, even by ice cream in my opinion. This recipe is fresh and delicious; quite the treat.

  • Mi Vida en un Dulce August 30, 2012, 5:43 pm

    Oh…no Nami, don’t do this to me…!!!! You know what, I finally found an ice cream maker in sale, hope I can still find one this weekend, I really need one…!!!

  • yummychunklet August 30, 2012, 6:12 pm

    Your blender step is genius. Delicious looking ice cream!

  • gloria August 30, 2012, 6:34 pm

    Look amazing Nami I love berries frozen yogurt! delicious!!

  • Maureen | Orgasmic Chef August 30, 2012, 6:50 pm

    Oh yum! This would get my attention for sure!

    Chopinandmysaucepan won the Cuisinart ice cream maker and the flavor they want to make is sour plum ! We’ll have to watch for that one. :) It’s already in the mail so I hope they make it soon.

  • Eri August 30, 2012, 7:37 pm

    I love strawberry yogurt Nami, the thing is that my little one does not like it yet, I guess his taste buds need some time to welcome new flavors.
    Have a nice weekend my friend!

  • Delishhh August 30, 2012, 8:11 pm

    I love strawberries and this looks amazing! Just so good – i am craving some right now.

  • Sophia August 30, 2012, 8:28 pm

    I would have thought the strawberry one would be icier, given how much more watery it is than blueberries! What a nice girly pink it is!

  • Roxana | Roxana's Home Baking August 30, 2012, 8:35 pm

    Out of all the ice-cream recipe you shared this summer I beat you to this one! I make strawberry frozen yogurt weekly since it’s the only “ice-cream” Tiffany can have.
    Will have to try your version, thanks for sharing Nami

  • mjskit August 30, 2012, 9:28 pm

    Just like cookie dough I sometimes am tempted to bypass the final step. Why bake the cookies when the dough is so delicious and why freeze the ice cream/sorbet when the unfrozen form can just be drank and be just as good. This is definitely one of those frozen dessert that might not make it to the ice cream maker. :) I hope you and your family have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

  • anna August 30, 2012, 10:09 pm

    i love your ice cream recipes! i’m hoping to try out your black sesame this week. the sour cream seems like an interesting and tasty addition to this recipe!

  • Nic@diningwithastud August 30, 2012, 11:10 pm

    What a great easy recipe :D I love strawberry yoghurt, its def my fave.

  • Shirley August 31, 2012, 12:23 am

    Yum! Looks beautiful and light. On the East Coast strawberry season is usually the month of June, but my strawberry plants got a second wind and are now giving me small berries again. Just tiny ones here and there, but the taste is superior to any berries you buy the rest of the year. I also take a lot of time to complete a blog post, but I’m always so impressed at how much you post and have ready!

  • Alessandra August 31, 2012, 1:07 am

    Great colour, I bet it tastes delicious, I seldom use sour cream and never in ice cream, I wonder if it changes the taste much.


  • Jill @ MadaboutMacarons August 31, 2012, 3:47 am

    Never apologise for posting a yummy sweet treat like this, Nami. It looks so fresh, fruity, fantastic!

  • Jen @ Savory Simple August 31, 2012, 5:07 am

    I’m a weird one, I guess, because I will put on a sweater and eat ice cream in the dead of winter. I just love it! So you can always post recipes like this one as far as I’m concerned :)

  • Sissi August 31, 2012, 6:39 am

    Nami, I totally agree: let’s enjoy the marvellous seasonal fruit and refreshing ice-cream or frozen yogurts as long as we can. This frozen yogurt looks so appetising, I have just added strawberries to my weekend shopping list! Looking at the mixing stage I’m not sure I would go to the end of the preparation process ;-) A part would probably be drunk as a smoothie.
    I love the photos and the bold choice of coulours you have used. You are a real magician!

  • Parsley Sage August 31, 2012, 6:58 am

    No complaints from me, darling! It’s ALWAYS summer in Cayman :) I smiled real big when i opened this post. Your ice cream is so pretty!

  • wok with ray August 31, 2012, 8:54 am

    Warm or cold season, in my house, my son and I would eat any frozen treats. I guess that’s what you call “like father, like sone.” Haha! So, this recipe even if you post it in January, I would still make it. I love, love, love the color coordination of your photos. Sometimes, simple colors complimenting each other makes the photos pop. Really good job, my friend! Have a great Labor Day weekend!

  • Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious August 31, 2012, 9:17 am

    Yay, another frozen yogurt recipe! I was going to try your blueberry one tonight but I think I’ll have to make this first!

  • love2dine August 31, 2012, 9:59 am

    omg omg i would finish all of them … i love yogurt. healthy …

  • Evelyne@cheapethniceatz August 31, 2012, 11:13 am

    For me any time of the year is ice cream time. And there is a lot of snow where I live lol. This looks like a fabulous frozen yogurt. Strawberries are around all year but out of season they are awful. Not to late now to get the last good ones.

  • Food Jaunts August 31, 2012, 12:07 pm

    I actually never used my ice cream maker this summer :( I kept making popsicles instead. But I’m definitely thinking of making this since I should use it as least once before summer ends!

  • tigerfish August 31, 2012, 12:52 pm

    A month is not long. I was going through my drafts the other day and realized I have backlogs as far back as a year ago! :O …..then when I want to try writing, it is so hard to remember what I wanted to write about whatever I have cooked/prepared a year ago :O Horrid.

  • A Little Yumminess August 31, 2012, 1:06 pm

    Its always a good time for strawberries and “ice-cream”. Never too late in the summer. Plus yoghurt recipes are the best. Have to get ice cream maker back from neighbor

  • Balvinder August 31, 2012, 4:17 pm

    Its not late, we have plenty of local strawberries in the market and its still summer. Moreover, I can eat ice cream even in winter sitting by the fireplace. Looks wonderful.!

  • Sawsan (Chef in disguise) August 31, 2012, 10:57 pm

    I loved all the icecream and frozen treat recipes you shared Nami , thank you for posting them
    I totally understand what you mean about worrying about posts not being published in time, that happens to me all the time!
    Beautiful pictures as always

  • Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella September 1, 2012, 1:28 am

    Beautiful photos Nami! And I’m happy because strawberries are everywhere here now!! :P

  • Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake September 1, 2012, 4:39 am

    Another beautiful recipe Nami! Strawberries are coming into season now, just bought a few punnets of cheap and delicious ones a few days ago, I’m so happy it’s finally our turn to enjoy these fruits! :D

  • Patty September 1, 2012, 7:45 am

    Hi Nami! The last basket of strawberries I bought at the market, sometime last week, were sweet and would be perfect to make your frozen yogurt recipe, so I think for timing worked out perfectly! I love the sour cream in for recipe, I’m sure that adds flavor and richness to the frozen yogurt of course I’m pinning this one and will try to make a batch while the strawberries are good, it sure is a pretty color and love your photos;-)

  • Tiffany September 1, 2012, 12:25 pm

    No need to apologize! Ice cream recipes are great YEAR-ROUND! And… strawberries are on sale! :D Have a great long weekend!

  • Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen September 1, 2012, 1:17 pm

    I like the addition of sour cream here, it’s perfect with the strawberries.

  • The Squishy Monster September 1, 2012, 7:45 pm

    I’ll definitely have to give this a whirl sometime–looks fabulously cool, creamy, yummy and PINK!!

  • Divya September 1, 2012, 8:45 pm

    Love the colours and the vibrancy of the ice-cream…it’s so appetizing. I want a big bite of it now!

    Have a great long weekend, Nami!

  • daphne September 1, 2012, 10:23 pm

    how gorgeous it is and it is our strawberry season now so perfect timing!

  • Raymund September 2, 2012, 3:19 am

    After all of those ice creams now its yogurt. Now I am badly craving for some.

  • Fern @ To Food with Love September 2, 2012, 3:40 am

    I love frozen yoghurt, and strawberries are in season right now. Think I will make this soon as it sounds healthier for the kids compared to regular ice-cream :-)

  • Amy (Savory Moments) September 2, 2012, 4:06 am

    What a lovely color. Strawberry season is passed here, but I hope to make some strawberry frozen yogurt next year – looks delicious!

  • ChopinandMysaucepan September 2, 2012, 7:05 am

    Dear Nami,

    Beautiful recipe and it’s officially spring in Sydney now so we can start to indulge in more of these things!

  • kitchenriffs September 2, 2012, 9:37 am

    Ice cream is never out of season! Besides, it’s Labor Day weekend – a big ice cream eating time! Love the second picture – really gorgeous. It’s just perfect.

  • Liz September 2, 2012, 10:58 am

    What a spectacular frozen yogurt, Nami! Gorgeous and tasty! I had to bump a corn on the cob recipe to next summer for the same reasons you mentioned…maybe I’ll have better photos by then, too :) Hope you’re enjoying the holiday weekend! xo

  • Peggy September 2, 2012, 11:06 am

    The color on your frozen yogurt is absolutely beautiful Nami! Hope you’re enjoying the last few days of summer =)

  • Phuong Miu September 2, 2012, 11:26 am

    That pretty pink colour captures my eyes immediately! What a scrumptious summer treat!

  • Lyndsey @TheTinySkillet September 2, 2012, 2:02 pm

    It is okay by me if you post frozen treats after Labor Day…it’s still summer for quite some time here in Florida, at least through October. I also use my oven year round too, and eat soup in the summer. :) This strawberry frozen yogurt looks delightful, I’ll bet your daughter was grinning ear to ear when she was eating this! :D

  • Giulietta | Aterkitchen September 2, 2012, 2:30 pm

    WOW! What a wonderful pink frozen yogurt! :)

  • Tania @ A Perfect Pantry September 2, 2012, 4:16 pm

    Strawberries are in season right now – and this is so easy to make:) Yum.

  • Anna @ The Littlest Anchovy September 2, 2012, 6:13 pm

    Nami, you have given mme the incentive I need to get myself an ice-cream maker. I don’t think I can get through the summer without making this!

  • Daisy@Nevertoosweet September 2, 2012, 7:11 pm

    Yay perfect dessert for me :) It’s getting warm here in melbourne and strawberries are so cheap can’t wait to try this:)

  • Marina@Picnic at Marina September 2, 2012, 8:13 pm

    Nami, beautiful dessert. And fits our weather: we are in 110F again…

  • nipponnin September 2, 2012, 10:19 pm


  • Kate@Diethood September 3, 2012, 5:01 am

    Well, you know that I’m a big fan of frozen treats. This is right up my alley and it needs to go right into mah belly! YUM!

  • Lola Lobato September 3, 2012, 10:26 am

    Love it!!! especially because yogurt and strawberrys are a totally delicious.

  • Sanjeeta KK September 3, 2012, 10:35 pm

    Wow..what beautiful colors, Nami..this is simply amazing! Would love to dig in this healthy dessert anytime…

  • Kelly September 4, 2012, 12:29 am

    Wow!! I don’t have an ice cream maker but I shall try the stirring method! Frozen yoghurt is preferable to ice cream and this one looks great even with a simple recipe!

  • Nancy/SpicieFoodie September 4, 2012, 8:02 am

    It may be late in the season, but ice cream is always in season for everyone:) I also take a long time to prepare my posts, don’t really know why though, lol:) Glad you shared this Nami, thanks!

  • Terra September 4, 2012, 5:24 pm

    There is for sure still plenty of berries to make delicious frozen yogurt, and what a gorgeous recipe this is! I am thinking of making frozen yogurt this weekend, something about the guilty pleasure that makes the weekend perfect:-) YUM! Hugs, Terra

  • Asmita September 4, 2012, 6:51 pm

    I love making ice cream but have been so lazy this summer. This looks so pretty and I am sure tastes fab!

  • Alyssa September 4, 2012, 9:00 pm

    Nami, I always love your frozen treat photos! I have to admit, I’m a bit intimidated to photograph ice cream and popsicles most times because I feel rushed to get the shot before it melts :) I love this recipe, I will be trying this for sure!

  • Lynna September 4, 2012, 10:53 pm

    So this is the delicious recipe you were talking about? It looks AMAZING. I don`t care that it`s almost fall, it`s still summer and I have to make this! :D

  • Tanja|Cooking Corner September 8, 2012, 3:06 am

    This is a great recipe, I am a big fan of frozen yogurt, and with strawberries it tastes best!! Love that you used organic strawberries, so full of flavour! Beautiful presentation, a feast for the eyes!:)

  • Jennifer September 10, 2012, 6:46 pm

    I just tried this and it came out fantastic! As others mentioned, it almost didn’t make it to the ice cream maker, and even then, I couldn’t stop eating from the machine. Beautiful colour, too. Thanks for posting!

    • Nami September 10, 2012, 9:17 pm

      Hi Jennifer! I’m glad you enjoyed this frozen yogurt! Yay~! I know, it’s so hard not to sample or test the flavor while it’s being in the process! :D I’m happy you enjoyed it! Thanks for your feedback!

  • Anna Scotte December 20, 2012, 6:59 pm

    This is awesome.my friend chatted me saying to see your blog and now I am almost reading all the recipes and stories. Thanks for sharing!

  • Camille @ Growing Up Gabel April 8, 2013, 6:04 pm

    This looks so refreshing! I’d love it if you linked it up to this weeks’ Iron Chef Mom: Strawberry Battle! http://growingupgabel.com/iron-chef-mom-strawberry-battle/
