The BEST Homemade Frozen Yogurt

The BEST Homemade Frozen Yogurt.  The kids loved being able to make their own sweet treat.  I loved that they got to participate, play outside, and then relish the healthy organic goodness.  Definitely a must for our hot, sticky summer.

The kids were beyond thrilled that they got to help.  Who doesn’t like helping make a treat?  Emma Marie and Raymond helped put all of the ingredients in, rolled the treat, and then of course(the best part), helped devour the goodness.  I call that a #MomWin if there ever was one.

The SoftShell Ice Cream Ball from YayLabs showed up on our doorstep and both kids immediately yelled, “A new SOCCER ball!”-to which I had to clarify that we would be ROLLING this ball with our hands to make FROZEN YOGURT and that trumped soccer.  Easily.

The SoftShell Ice Cream Ball from YayLabs! enables you to make a frozen treat anywhere-ANYTIME.  The SoftShell Cover is removable so you can safely wash and care for your new-found ice cream maker.  You simply put your ingredients in one side and add Rock Salt and Ice to the other and roll to your little ones delight.  Make sure they remember that this is NOT a soccer ball(as it will hurt them AND the ball to be kicked).


Our Ingredient List

I wanted to make our Ingredient List as pure as possible.

Ingredient List:

32 Ounce Container of Stonyfield Organic Whole Milk Yogurt in French Vanilla

1/3 Cup Sugar



Let the Rolling Commence

The kids rolled the ball for about twenty minutes outside.  The YayLabs! Ball didn’t leak-it will if you don’t close the hatches well enough-so this could easily be an indoor activity for when it is too hot or too cold.

Both kids were thoroughly exhausted and ready for the frozen yogurt.  I simply used an ice cream scoop(be careful not to scrape the inside of the canister-you may want to use a plastic scooper) and we all sat down to eat our tasty treat.


You could say that Raymond was a TAD BIT EXCITED to eat their own creation.

I loved being able to make an Organic Frozen Yogurt with two delicious ingredients.  The kids helped add the Rock Salt, Ice, Yogurt, and Sugar to their respective hatch.

We are now on batch three over the past two weeks and I am loving the independence this has brought to my two handy-helpers.   There are a multitude of ingredients you can throw in to make your own confection and diced strawberries are a MUST-TRY.  Simply delicious.


Do you make your own Ice Cream or Frozen Yogurt?

I would love to find new recipes to try!  Please share them below!
