Fro Yo

The crockpot yogurt was a big success. The vanilla yogurt I made turned out well. We have about one cup of plain yogurt left, and half of that must be saved for this week’s batch. Definitely making more. And I have a free milk coupon 😉

We decided to experiment with frozen yogurt. I was nervous about the water content (it was runny enough for me to add dried milk) making large ice crystals. It turned out like homemade popsicles. Popsicles was our first idea, but we couldn’t find the old Tupperware molds of my childhood. The pecan tassie pan was Plan B.

We made strawberry yogurt as usual, sprayed a tartlet pan with cooking spray to ease any trouble getting the yogurt out.

If we removed the amount of fro yo that we wanted, then let it sit a bit, you could eat it with a spoon. If you didn’t wait, you could hold the yogurt and bite the tart easily.


The flavor was fine. The texture was like homemade popsicles.

I don’t know that I would make this again unless one of the kids asked me to.


The recipe wasn’t bad, but I prefer non-frozen yogurt. And maybe more strawberry jam.

Our strawberries are getting on the small side now. The season is winding down for us. (Our old CSA, however, just began its strawberry season.) I’ll need to figure out when to move the berries. Then I can have space for non-food perennials again.
