Frozen Yogurt Dex+

 I really want some ice cream that isn't filled with fructose. No, actually, what I really want is an easy ice cream that I can whip up when my kids are begging for milk shakes or ice cream out somewhere. Like tonight. So, how about frozen yogurt?

Turns out all it takes is some Simple Syrup Dex+, some whole-milk Greek yogurt, and an ice cream maker cylinder in your freezer. It's really a breeze to freeze some up! It fills my two quart ice cream maker about half way, and makes the perfect amount for five bowls of yum. (More about Dex+)

And YUM it is! The kids love it, and so do we. It has a nice tangy taste, which makes me think of cheesecake ice cream.

It's really a shame there is so much fructose in grocery store food. Who needs it? This stuff is great!

*You can make Greek-style yogurt from whole milk yogurt by straining it for a few hours in the fridge. A quart of yogurt should make a pint of Greek yogurt. If it drains too long, it will become too thick. If that happens, just add the whey (watery stuff) back into the thick yogurt until it makes two cups, and stir it back together.

Or better yet, use scales, and add whey until it is 480 grams. Also use the scale to measure the syrup straight into the same bowl with the yogurt.  I really like this Oxo scale, which weighs up to 11 lbs; wish I had the 22 lb version though. Save the whey to use in a bread recipe in place of the water.

Frozen Yogurt Dex+

Tastes like cheesecake frozen yogurt. Delicious topped with cinnamon sugar dex+ and/or blueberry topping dex+. Makes 5 nice servings. Can make a double batch in a 2 quart machine.



  1. Mix ingredients until well combined. Keep chilled until ready to pour into the ice cream maker.
  2. Turn on the ice cream maker, then pour in the mix. Run it until the yogurt is nice and thick. Follow your ice cream maker's instructions.Dex+
