Chobani Frozen Yogurt

Chobani Frozen Yogurt

You’ve probably heard of Chobani, if not from their delicious yogurt then from their recent position as sponsor of the 2012 Olympic games. I hardly managed to do anything but watch TV for those two weeks—well, watch TV and eat yogurt.

Chobani recently introduced 6 of their most popular flavors in 16oz tub container form including a 2% vanilla chocolate chip variety which easily takes the gold medal for me. Chobani has always been one of my favorite Greek yogurts because of the simple ingredients and consistently low price at my grocery store and I was happy to try them when they sent me a variety pack.

I had to resist eating all of the flavors simply with granola and fruit and actually make something with them. I settled on frozen yogurt because few things are as tasty(and easy!) as homemade frozen yogurt. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, put it on your Christmas list; even though it only has one function it’s easily my favorite kitchen gadget I’ve bought over the past few years.

This recipe is as easy as 3 ingredients and is entirely customizable! You can use any flavor of Chobani and add any mix-ins your heart desires. Have fun with it and pretend you’re at a fancy frozen yogurt chain by adding things like chocolate chips, fruity cereal, and chopped fruit on top.

Chobani Frozen Yogurt

Prep time: 5 minutes

Freeze time: 2 hours

Ingredients(Makes about 6 servings):

  • 1 16oz Chobani yogurt container*
  • 1 cup skim or 2% milk
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar, sifted

*I’ve only tried this with the fruit flavors. If you’re starting with Plain Chobani, you might want to adjust the sweetness by adding more powdered sugar.

Chobani Frozen Yogurt Scoop

Method:

  1. In a large bowl whisk together all of the ingredients.
  2. Pour the base into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions.
  3. After the ice cream has churned, scoop it into a solid container and freeze for at least two hours.
  4. Before serving, let the yogurt soften at room temperature for 5 minutes.

Mango admittedly is not one of my favorite flavor of yogurt. Somehow, turning it into frozen yogurt makes it much more irresistible. It reminded me of something I’d order from Pinkberry. And since this is made with low-fat ingredients and greek yogurt, it’s packed with protein, so feel good about having an extra scoop.

    I’ve heard of this from other people and it sounds like a great idea but I haven’t tried it. I LOVE their peach and the new apples and cinnamon flavor.

    Chobani arrived in Australia just before I left, but without my favourite flavours (raspberry and pomegranate), so I’ve been eating quite a few of those since arriving here! I’ve yet to even see the chocolate one, though.

    This makes me sad about my lack of ice cream machine, alas!

    I absolutely adore Chobani. Just recently tried the vanilla chocolate chip and was impressed! Although my favorite fruit flavors are going to continue to be the ones that aren’t already blended.

    Oh my. That looks like the creamiest frozen yogurt ever! I just read a Chobani brownies post and now this. It’s like torture. I hope Chobani starts selling their stuff in Germany. I want to make such creamy frozen yogurt, too!

    You’re so brilliant, Evan!
    I haven’t tried the 2% yet, or some of Chobani’s other flavors, but I want to. I actually noticed that Chobani has one of those same containers as Fage now, where you bend the container to pour in “berries” or “chocolate”. Coming soon to a store near you!

    I’ve had a lot of people suggest that I freeze my chobani and try it as “ice cream” but I’ve never seen it pictured before! So glad you made it and it truly does look incredible! I know what I’m doing with my mango 16 oz tub in the fridge right now :)

    I am so excited to see this – I recently bought a tub of the vanilla chocolate chunk without the foggiest idea of what to do with it but compelled to make SOMEthing interesting. This fits the bill!
