Why You'll Love This Recipe

Homemade: I love making homemade Mint Chocolate Chip Fro Yo as it's so easy. Making homemade fro yo and ice cream is also really fun. If you haven't ever made homemade fro yo before, it's just like making ice cream!

Health Benefits: This Homemade Mint Chocolate Chip Fro Yo tastes just like your favorite mint chip ice cream, but it has the benefit of probiotics because of the yogurt. This is one of the reasons I love making my own fro yo as I can control ingredients and also get the benefits of probiotics you don't get from ice cream.

Light & Creamy: I have always preferred frozen yogurt to ice cream as I feel it has a little lighter mouth feel and I love the added benefit of probiotics when I eat yogurt! I'm obsessed with this recipe, to say the least! Try this Homemade Mint Chocolate Chip Fro Yo recipe this summer.

How to Make Homemade Mint Chocolate Chip Fro Yo

Step 1

First, place the bowl of your ice cream maker and loaf pan in the freezer for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Step 2

In a medium pot, add the milk, cane sugar, and white chocolate. Put over high heat, and stir until it reaches 140°F on a thermometer. The sugar and white chocolate will be completely dissolved. Place the pot in the fridge and let it sit overnight.Remove the pot from the fridge, add in the yogurt and peppermint flavor and whisk until combined.

Step 3

Remove the ice cream maker from the freezer, and turn it on low (yes, with nothing in it). Slowly pour the yogurt mixture into the ice cream maker. Churn for about 20 minutes (or follow the instructions on your ice cream maker). I have the KitchenAid attachment for my mixer, and I did about 20 minutes. If you over churn ice cream or fro yo, then it can make it really icy.

Step 4

Remove the loaf pan from the freezer. Once the fro yo is done churning, add the mini chocolate chips and mix with a spatula to combine. Pour into the loaf pan and spread evenly. Place back in the freezer overnight.

FAQ's

Can I use another kind of chocolate?

Yes, if you want to use a dark chocolate bar and chop that you can do that in place of mini chocolate chips. You can also use regular chocolate chips as well. I prefer the mini chocolate chips as they are smaller and easier to eat in frozen desserts.

Can I use Greek yogurt?

Yes, if you prefer to use Greek yogurt, you can do that too!

How should I store homemade fro yo?

Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months.
