  • 1 cup Yogurt or greek yogurt


Freeze yogurt in a cube tray

  • Take an ice cube tray and pour the yogurt into the ice cube trays, not filling it all the way through, about ¾ full.
  • Place the ice cube trays in the freezer. Yogurt takes a few hours to freeze completely. We usually keep it in the freezer overnight to prevent a mess.
  • Remove the ice cube trays from the freezer and release the yogurt cubes from the ice cube trays.
  • Transfer the cubes to a freezer-friendly ziplock bag or an airtight freezer-friendly container. Squeeze out as much air as you can to save space in the fridge.
  • Label the ziplock bag or the container if needed and freeze for up to 2 months.

Freeze yogurt in a container

  • Prepare an airtight freezer-friendly container and pour the yogurt into the container, filling it not all the way through.
  • Yogurt contains mostly water, and water expands in the freezer, so you will need to leave some space in the container.
  • Close the container tightly and make sure that it is well sealed. Only an airtight container will work for this.
  • It prevents the yogurt from absorbing odors from surrounding foods which can lead to the milk spoiling faster.
  • Label the container if needed (with the title yogurt and the quantity) and place the container in the freezer for up to 2 months.

How to thaw yogurt

  • This is the best way to thaw frozen yogurt. Yogurt can be thawed in the fridge by placing it in the fridge overnight.


After you defrost the yogurt, make sure that you give it a quick blend in a blender or in a food processor to fix its texture.
