Organic Coffee Frozen Yogurt

December 18, 2009

Author Notes: Ok, maybe calling this a frozen yogurt is a bit of a stretch because it also has some cream in it, but it is lighter than traditional ice cream. It has a pretty pronounced coffee flavor, which I love, so it's probably best for grown-ups (my kids tasted it and passed). I have the Cuisinart 2 quart machine and it's great- I highly recommend it! This recipe is adapted from David Lebovitz' book The Perfect Scoop...WinnieAb

Makes: a little more than 1 quart


  • 1 cup organic Greek yogurt (I actually use my own homemade "drained" yogurt)
  • 1 cup organic milk
  • 1 cup organic heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup organic sugar
  • 1 tablespoon organic freeze-dried coffee (I used Mount Hagen brand)
  • 1 pinch sea salt
In This Recipe


  1. In a blender or large capacity food processor, process all the ingredients until smooth.
  2. Chill in the refrigerator for a few hours.
  3. Pour into your ice cream maker.
  4. Freeze according to your manufacturer’s instructions. The ice cream will be finished, though on the soft side, after 30-40 minutes; you can enjoy it like this, or for a firmer consistency, transfer to a container and store overnight in the freezer.
