Instant frozen yoghurt


This is the quickest way to make your own frozen yoghurt using fresh fruit. The sealable bag method is so simple kids can make it themselves. It's quite cold on your hands though so make sure to wear rubber gloves!


  • 50g/1¾oz soft fruit, such as raspberries, blueberries, banana, strawberries, peaches and mango, chopped into bite-sized pieces if needed
  • 300g/10½oz Greek-style yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar (optional)
  • 350g/9oz ice cubes
  • 3 tbsp salt


  1. If using blueberries or strawberries, place them into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Leave to cool. Other soft fruit won’t need this step. See tip below for more advice.

  2. Place the fruit, yoghurt and sugar, if using, into a medium-sized zip-lock bag and make sure it is sealed well.

  3. Wearing rubber gloves, tip the ice cubes into a large sealable bag, add the salt and place the sealed ice cream bag inside. Seal the large bag.

  4. Shake the bag of ice cubes around or gently roll over a surface for 5-10 minutes until the yoghurt starts to look like ice cream.

  5. Take the ice cream bag out of the ice cube bag. Give the outside of the bag a wipe to remove the salty water, then open it and spoon the frozen yoghurt into bowls to serve.

Recipe Tips

Many soft fruits will work in this frozen yoghurt, but if they are on the firmer side, such as blueberries and strawberries, you may need to microwave them for 30 seconds to soften the outer skin. You won't need to do this for very soft fruits such as raspberries. You can even use tinned soft fruits, such as peaches or mango and frozen berries work well too.
