5-Minute Vegan Frozen Yogurt (1)

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Frozen fruit: We developed this recipe using frozen strawberries, but enjoy different yogurt flavors by using any frozen fruit. Try frozen bananas, peaches, blueberries, raspberries, or even ripe langka (jackfruit!).
  • Unsweetened yogurt: Most dairy versions of frozen yogurt are made with greek yogurt or plain yogurt. For similar results, we recommend using a plain, unsweetened vegan yogurt. If interested in making a homemade yogurt recipe with live cultures, try this Easy 2-Ingredient Coconut Yogurt.
  • Vanilla: Elevates the flavor and adds a hint of sweetness. We used vanilla extract, but feel free to use fresh vanilla beans or vanilla paste if you have them.
  • Liquid sweetener: Although this healthy dessert is naturally sweetened with fruit, adding a bit of extra sweetness is needed. We used maple syrup, but agave nectar, simple syrup, or any liquid sweetener of your choice will work. You can even use Medjool dates but keep in mind that you may need a few tablespoons of liquid such as water, almond milk, oat milk, or coconut milk to help it blend.

Equipment Needed

How to Make Vegan Frozen Yogurt

  1. Blend the ingredients until smooth. Place the frozen fruit, vegan yogurt, vanilla extract, and maple syrup in a high-speed blender or food processor. Blend until completely smooth and creamy, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.
  2. Transfer to a freezer-safe container (optional). You can serve this frozen yogurt immediately once blended smooth or transfer the yogurt mixture to an airtight container and freeze for 2-3 hours, or until hardened up a bit.
  3. Serve. Enjoy immediately while chilled with your favorite frozen yogurt toppings and garnishes like fresh mint.

Vegan Frozen Yogurt Topping Ideas

  • Nut butters: creamy peanut butter or almond butter are our favorites!
  • Mochi rice cakes: my personal favorite froyo topping!
  • Chocolate chips: dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or a chopped homemade vegan chocolate bar would be delicious
  • Fresh fruit: diced strawberries, mango, pineapple, langka or blueberries would be delicious
  • Crushed Oreos: these cookies are accidentally vegan (at least in the United States!) and delicious crushed up on froyo.
  • Caramel: try our Peanut Butter Caramel, Date Caramel, or Classic Vegan Caramel.
  • Tapioca pearls: If you have leftover small tapioca or sago pearls from making our Taho with Arnibal or Ginataang Bilo-Bilo with Langka, they make a delicious frozen yogurt topping.
  • Coconut: Both coconut flakes and dessicated coconut work well.
  • Sprinkles: when looking for vegan-friendly sprinkles, avoid whey powder or dairy, beeswax, carmine (often in red sprinkles), or shellac. It can be easier to find vegan-friendly sprinkles online as opposed to on Amazon.
  • Granola: peanut butter granola, graham cracker granola, or classic crunchy granola are all delicious pairs for a creamy vegan frozen yogurt base.

Quick Tips

  • Use the blender tamper. This will help push the fruit down into the blade and turn the ingredients into the ultimate creamy base. If you have a blender that does not have a tamper, stop it every now and then and scrape the sides down as needed until smooth and creamy.
  • Adjust the sweetener to taste. The amount of sweetener you need will depend on how sweet your frozen fruit is, your taste preferences, and the kind of yogurt you use. For example, if you use a sweetened vanilla yogurt, this will not only alter the yogurt flavor but also reduce the amount of added sweetener and vanilla extract you’ll need.
  • Freeze fresh fruit at home. If you’re out of frozen fruit, make your own by flash freezing fresh fruit. To freeze strawberries (or virtually any fruit) at home, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Hull the strawberries and halve them, then spread them on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Freeze until solid, about 8 hours or overnight, then use in vegan frozen yogurt, Homemade Strawberry Lemonade, or Strawberry Basil Kombucha Mimosas.

  • Author: Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 4 small servings


This Vegan Frozen Yogurt is made in 5 minutes without an ice cream maker or animal products. It’s the best healthy snack or sweet treat to help you cool down in the summer months. All you need is 4 simple ingredients and your favorite froyo toppings!


  • 3 cups frozen strawberries* (see notes)
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened plain vegan yogurt* (see notes)
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons maple syrup (or as desired)
  • Optional: fresh mint, for garnish


  1. Add all of the ingredients (except for the mint) into a high speed blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. Adjust the sweetness to taste.
  2. Serve immediately or transfer it to an airtight container and place it into the freezer for 2-3 hours to harden up a bit (as pictured above). You can store the vegan frozen yogurt in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 1 month, just be sure to leave it out for 10-15 minutes to soften.


  • You can use store bought frozen strawberries OR fresh frozen strawberries for this recipe. To freeze strawberries at home, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Remove the stems from your strawberries and half them, then lay them out in a single layer on the baking sheet and place that into the refrigerator until the strawberries are frozen solid, about 8 hours or overnight.
  • If you would like, you could use medjool dates in place of the maple syrup but just keep in mind that you may need to add a few tablespoons of water to get things going if there isn’t enough liquid to blend it.
  • You can use sweetened and flavored yogurt, just keep in mind that this will alter the flavor of the frozen yogurt in the end. If you are using sweetened yogurt, you will need to adjust the maple syrup or remove it all together based on your preference. If you are using vanilla yogurt, the addition of vanilla extract may not be necessary.
  • If you prefer not to use strawberries, try 3 cups of your favorite fruit (frozen)! Results may vary and we have not tested this out ourselves, but our next test is going to be frozen blueberries and peaches!
