Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

The dog days of summer are nearly here. I will be the first to admit that I am ready. The drain of the busy school year is evident with my little ones; even my kindergartner (who will soon be no longer, sob!) is burnt out. A few months of no homework or rigid schedules sounds really good right about now, to all of us.

Of course, I’m laughing to myself as I type this, because I know that after about a week of no school, the honeymoon will be over, and the dog days of summer will take on another meaning altogether. This mama might be looking into sleepaway camps after having the kids home for a week.

I joke. Really, you know I do. I am setting goals for my time with the kids – more time at the parks, more time at the pool. more time to really enjoy my children. I’ve been listening to them play together, and the other day, I heard that distinct giggle. You know the kind — those uncontrollable giggles that just keep rolling and rolling. It was music to my ears, and a tune that I realize I haven’t heard in a long while. I’m hoping that this summer, there will be time to hear it more.

I want to hear those giggles as we go fruit picking, and to take home our bushels to transform into treats. And when we pick more than our bellies can hold, there will be batches of icy sweets, such as this Strawberry Frozen Yogurt, floating in a homemade strawberry sauce.

Are you ready? What are you looking forward to most this summer?

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Serves 4-6. | Prep: 15 minutes | Cook: 30 minutes

A sweet treat for the summer, this frozen yogurt is made even more fun served floating atop a homemade strawberry sauce.


2 pints strawberries, hulled and sliced
1/2 cup sugar
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 cup creamy vanilla yogurt
1 cup 2% Greek yogurt


Combine the strawberries, sugar and lemon juice in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Adjust sweetness if necessary with more sugar. When the sugar is dissolved, lower heat to a simmer and let it cook for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and chill until completely cool.

Take 1/2 of the sauce and stir together with the vanilla yogurt and Greek yogurt. Pour into the pre-frozen bowl of your ice cream maker and churn for about 30 minutes, or until it has achieved a thick, frozen yogurt consistency. Enjoy immediately or store in a tightly sealed container in the freezer. Serve with remaining strawberry sauce.

    This looks wonderful Liren! And yes, all too soon we will be wishing for overnight camps. Or at least sleepovers at Grandma and Grandpa’s. The giggle moments sure do make the sibling rivalry easier to tolerate.

    It’s winter here, so I’m really longing for the warm days of summer. Your frozen yoghurt looks so delicious and refreshing and perfect for those hot summer days.

    Gorgeous photos as always Liren!

    I love both strawberry ice cream AND frozen yogurt. My favorite shop doesn’t have strawberry flavor so I have to make it on my own. This will be one of to make FY this summer!!

    I can never have enough cold sweets to eat like this. We went blueberry picking this week and it was great family fun.

    I love it! I might try doing a sweet balsamic sauce to pour on top as well. Now, I just need some good weather to come our way.

    That’s so sweet that you are setting goals on what to do with your children this summer. And what a perfect way to start off June with this frozen yogurt!! Frozen yogurt is my weakness and I’m sad to admit that I’ve never made it myself. But this recipe is inspiring me too, so I think I will [:
