In this Post: Everything you need for Berry Ginger Frozen Yogurt

One reason I love living in Michigan is that we are still very much enjoying summer! Berry season is in full force and I am savoring every last bite.

Blueberries from Market - The Lemon Bowl

Right now, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries are growing locally so I have been picking them up at my local farmers market several times a week. Both of my boys love blueberries so I always have them on hand either fresh or frozen.

Raspberries are at their peak sweetness right now so I have been grabbing those each week, too. Asking me to pick my favorite berry would be like asking me to pick my favorite child so for when my good friends at UDIM asked me to create a Berry Dairylicious recipe, I decided to use them all!

Well, three of them anyway: blackberries, raspberries and blueberries. While I absolutely love real ice cream, I decided to create a guilt-free frozen treat that I could serve to my toddler without worrying about a sugar crash. The whole milk yogurt not only adds a creamy texture but it is protein-rich and packed with health benefits.

Feel free to use whatever berries you have on hand or have stashed in the freezer! This recipe is ideal for any of those overly ripe berries that might be almost ready to toss. The sweeter, the better.

No forks required.

Juicy berries are sweetened with pure honey and flavored with a hint of fresh ginger and lemon zest in this cool, creamy and decadent frozen yogurt.
PREP: 30 minutes
COOK: 8 hours
TOTAL: 8 hours 30 minutes
Servings: 12


  • 32 ounce container whole milk plain yogurt (full fat)
  • 3 cups mixed berries (fresh or frozen)
  • cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 pinch salt


  • In a small sauce pan, heat berries, honey and ginger over medium heat. Stirring frequently, bring mixture to a light boil then reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Place a fine mesh strainer over a large bowl. Working slowly, gently pour the warm berry mixture through the strainer using the back of a rubber spatula to press out all of the liquid. At the end you should be left with the ginger chunks and berry seeds.
  • Refrigerate the strained berry-honey-ginger mixture so that it is completely cold, a minimum of 8 hours or overnight. This is a good time to place your ice cream maker insert in the freezer if you haven’t already.
  • The next day, whisk together the cold berry mixture and the whole milk yogurt along with lemon zest and a pinch of salt. Stir until fully incorporated.
  • Pour mixture into ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.


Store frozen yogurt in an air-tight container in the freezer for up to 3 weeks.

  1. This recipe looks and sounds great. Very tasty as well as a beautiful color. I think I would choose to do it with Greek yogurt, to up the protein content so it would make a good snack for me.

  2. Love the bright, fun color this triple berry yogurt has! I usually do one berry at a time, but now I’m inspired to put them all together.
