Grapefruit Frozen Yogurt | Wheat-Free Meat-Free

Do you have one of those home-sized ice cream makers? Do you want to experience homemade frozen yogurt? Then this is the recipe for you!


Grapefruit Frozen Yogurt:

  • 3 cups full fat greek yogurt
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1 large grapefruit

With an ice cream maker:

  1. Stir the honey and yogurt together until honey is fully incorporated.
  2. Pour mixture into ice cream machine and chill following manufacturer’s instructions. (For me, this about half an hour.)
  3. While the yogurt is chilling, slice the grapefruit in half. Run a sharp knife between the pith and the fruit in each segment and also around the circumference of the grapefruit. Pull out each of the segments and chop small.
  4. Add the grapefruit to the yogurt in the last 5 minutes of chilling.
  5. Remove and transfer to a freezer-safe container. Freeze about 2 hours before serving.

Without an ice cream maker:

  1. Stir the honey and yogurt together until honey is fully incorporated.
  2. Pour the mixture into a baking dish or bowl. Put in the freezer.
  3. While the yogurt is chilling, slice the grapefruit in half. Run a sharp knife between the pith and the fruit in each segment and also around the circumference of the grapefruit. Pull out each of the segments and chop small.
  4. After 45 minutes, check on the mixture. Stir any ice crystals around the edges into the yogurt. Add the grapefruit chunks and mix well. Refreeze.
  5. Thereafter, check every 30 minutes and give the mixture a good stirring. (The point is to break up the ice crystals.) Frozen yogurt should be ready in a few hours.

Makes ~1 quart

Full fat yogurt is important. The fat makes the frozen yogurt creamy instead of icy. The grapefruit pieces should be pretty small. Since they’re mainly water, they’re going to freeze into ice, and no one wants big hard ice chunks in their frozen yogurt.

If you use the second method, it helps if the dish you use is flat and wide. The yogurt will freeze faster that way. Even if you do use an ice cream maker, it still might be helpful to give the yogurt a stir every now and then once you put it in the freezer. As I mentioned in the recipe, you’re trying to break up ice crystals in order to produce a creamier frozen yogurt.

Increasing the honey to 3/4 cup (or even 1 cup if you like it really sweet) will also help make a smoother, creamier frozen yogurt. However, honey obviously has a pretty distinctive taste, and as you add more, you’ll lose some of the grapefruit flavor.

After the yogurt has been in the freezer overnight, it’s going to be pretty solid. Let it sit out before serving.

  1. That certainly looks incredible, Kalinda! I’d probably use more honey. I like grapefruit when I make it sweeter. ;-) Thanks for the recipe!

  2. This looks amazing, Kalinda! I love grapefruit. I’m having a hard time picturing a savory grapefruit dish :)

    • It doesn’t seem as common, which seems odd considering oranges, lemons, and limes get used in savory dishes all the time. I did come across a lot of salads, but that seemed to obvious. I was working on a dish using roasted fennel and grapefruit, but couldn’t seem to pull it all together.

  3. I love this idea, Kalinda! :) The grapefruit must go perfectly with the honey and tang of the yogurt. I’ve only made a grapefruit olive oil cake and granita before.

  4. That sounds absolutely delightful. I love grapefruit and I think frozen yogurt is an great idea for a healthy yet sweet something after dinner!

  5. Mmm, love grapefruit! We have a bunch of it right now too. I may just have to give this a try! :)

  6. This sounds great!

  7. I love greek yogurt. This is a new flavor for sure. It sounds really good. Pat

  8. I really need to get an ice cream maker. There are so many wonderful ice cream recipes out there and it’s just not the same without the ice cream maker. Oh well.

    Thank you for sharing this delicious and easy recipe at Allergy-Free Wednesdays! We hope to see you back again next week.

  10. Your frozen yogurt looks absolutely beautiful in that pretty dish, and I love the sound of the recipe.

  11. What a lovely and delicious dessert! Grapefruit yogurt is such a great idea! My kids and I were just discussing that we needed to start making more frozen desserts.
