Greek yogurt with minted honey. Cold, smooth, and refreshing. Terrific for summer evenings. Garnish with mint sprigs, orange wheels, or strawberry slices.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Stir together the yogurt and lemon juice until smooth in a freezer-safe metal bowl. Combine the honey and mint in a small bowl. Pour the honey on top of the yogurt, then give the yogurt a few quick stirs so that the honey forms "ribbons" in the yogurt but is not blended in completely. Cover bowl and freeze for 1 to 2 hours.

I have a few modifications that makes this a strong lemony frozen yogurt. I use the entire amount of yogurt in the large carton. mine was 4 cups so I increased the agave syrup to taste. I increased the lemon to an entire lemon. I then zested the entire lemon as well for the extra flavor you get from the natural lemon oils. I love mint so I added about 3-4 more leaves and finely chopped them. I didn't want to drag out my ice cream maker so I poured it back into the original yogurt container and tossed it into the freezer. I'll probably stir it every hour or so until it's firm. Read More

I also love Greek yogurt but did not enjoy this recipe. The flavours did not blend well and the texture of the yogurt when frozen was very icy. I served this to guests who also gave less than favourable reviews. Not a repeat recipe for me. Read More

Delightful! The only thing I did differently was use fat free Greek yogurt and it is so rich it still satisfies. This will be a frequent dessert this summer. Thanks for posting. Read More

This was delicious. I used fresh pineapple mint and added fresh raspberries upon serving and my whole family loved it asked me to make this again the next night. Read More

OMG what a hit. I had to make two batches so I froze the first batch then added a layer of lemon curd then the second batch on top. After a heavy meal this desert was just perfect. I used my homemade whole milk yogurt. Read More

These flavours are great together. I may consider making it wil regular plain yogurt next time as the greek yogurt flavour might not be for me. I melted the honey lemon and mint leaves together before adding to the yogurt. I also added quite a bit of lemon zest. I stuck all this in the ice cream maker and the result was pretty good!

Very refreshing. I love Greek yogurt and this was a nice alternate way for serving. I always use honey but I like the addition of the lemon. However I would omit the mint leaves the next time I make it. The mint leaves just didn t work for me. Other than the mint leaves it was very good. Read More

While quick and easy to make this was not sweet enough for our tastes. The bites that contained the honey/mint mixture were good but they were few and far between. Most of the bites were plain Greek yogurt- the lemon flavor was hardly noticeable. Read More
