GAPS frozen yogurt recipe
Making your own delicious dessert while healing your gut is easier than you would think. My family loves this GAPS frozen yogurt recipe in the summertime and I know that yours will, too.
Frozen yogurt recipe without an ice cream maker
I love making frozen yogurt in the warmer months for my family. There are so many benefits in this GAPS frozen yogurt. When my kids ask for more, I want to give it to them!
Not only is this recipe delicious and healthy, but it has only two ingredients. And you don’t need an ice cream maker!
Another reason I love it is the time it takes to make it is so short. Traditional frozen yogurt recipes require time to make and then freeze, but not this GAPS frozen yogurt recipe! Because of the frozen fruit, you can blend and serve within a matter of minutes.

Tips in making GAPS frozen yogurt
This recipe is so simple, I honestly love it. If the weather is above 85 degrees, chances are my family and I are enjoying this treat on our back patio.
Here are a few tips in making this GAPS frozen yogurt recipe to make it the best dessert this summer…
- This recipe is made with ingredients for multiple people. To make more or less, just keep this ratio: Blend two times the amount of dairy product.
- Get creative with the frozen fruit that you use! Try frozen berries, mango chunks, cherries or even pineapple to make a GAPS version of Dole Whip.
- If you’re not on GAPS, you can use milk or cream that hasn’t been cultured for more of a fruit ice cream treat.
- I try to make this recipe immediately before serving. I found that it is the creamiest right after blending so whenever this is on the menu, I make sure to plan ahead.
- Try serving in these fun sundae dessert cups. They are made from clear glass so you can see the bright, fruity color inside so it just tastes better.

How to make GAPS frozen yogurt
My family loves how we can take 2 ingredients and within a matter of minutes have a delicious, GAPS approved frosty treat.
- 4 cups frozen fruit (frozen berries, mango chunks)
- 2 cups cultured dairy (I prefer kefir cultured cream but you can also use kefir or yogurt)
- Add frozen fruit and cultured dairy to blender. It usually works best to have the cultured dairy at the bottom of the blender.
- Blend on frozen treat settings to your liking. I prefer to leave some fruit chunks, but you may like a smoother frozen yogurt so you can blend for longer.
- Scoop into bowls and enjoy!
What is the equipment that you will need?
This recipe is so simple and so quick! Even better? You don’t need some fancy equipment to make it. All you need is a blender or a food processor. This equipment will blend the ingredients together and break down the frozen fruit to make a nice, smooth dessert.
Date frozen yogurt recipe
Another recipe that I love is to make date frozen yogurt. It’s the perfect recipe to add in sweetness without the fruity flavor, so it is more similar to vanilla.
After you soak the dates and remove the seed, freeze the dates. Then when the dates are frozen, blend with the yogurt. I like to also add some vanilla extract to this version.
Can you freeze yogurt?
Yes you can freeze yogurt. Some of the probiotics probably won’t survive the low temperatures, but it’s still a very healthy and nutritious food.
Frozen yogurt vs ice cream
Frozen yogurt and ice cream both have their special place in my heart, if I can be honest. Both are wonderful on a hot, summer day to cool you down and satisfy your sweet tooth, and both can be made at home to be nutrient dense.
Here are a few benefits to serving this frozen yogurt recipe over commercial ice cream:
- As a mom, I love feeding my kids this recipe because the kefir cream is healthier than commercial ice cream for so many reasons. I love that I can use raw cultured dairy and be totally in control of all of the ingredients. Also, there is no added sweetener, just the sweetness of the fruit.
- This frozen yogurt recipe is packed full of nutrients like probiotics that help with balancing gut flora.
- My kids love choosing what fruit we use. There are so many yummy combinations that everyone can get what they want.
How to store GAPS frozen yogurt properly
In order to make and save this GAPS frozen yogurt for later, it’s a good idea to place it in an airtight container and place immediately into the freezer.
Another way to store your frozen yogurt is in popsicle molds. Frozen yogurt pops are fun shapes and is an easy snack for little ones.
How long does GAPS frozen yogurt last?
If I am able to make some extra frozen yogurt to store for later, then I can stick it in my deep freezer for the next 2-4 months.
I like to store it in an airtight container, just make sure to keep the pan shallow for an even freeze.
Zoku frozen yogurt recipe
If you are looking for a recipe that makes smooth, individual sized servings of frozen yogurt, then I cannot recommend trying the Zoku enough.
This machine is excellent if you only have access to fresh (not frozen) fruit.
