How to freeze yogurt

If you buy large tubs of yogurt and think you can’t use it in time, freeze it in portions. How well yogurt will freeze depends on how much fat it contains, it may well separate. This doesn’t mean you can’t use it for cooking, but it may be runnier and not look very appetising to eat defrosted.

  1. Freeze yogurt in cartons or spoon it into ice cube containers or muffin tins. Freeze for a couple of hours and pop up the cubes or muffin shapes and store in bags and containers.
  2. If you use muffin tins, measure how many tablespoons go into each and label the containers, thaw out as many as you need at a time.
  3. Frozen yogurt will keep for up to three months in the freezer.

From the breakfast table to delicious desserts, our triple-tested yogurt recipes are perfect for using up that tub in the fridge. Want to cool off? Try whipping up one of our frozen yogurt recipes with fresh fruit for a refreshing treat.
