🥘 Ingredients

This list of strawberry yogurt ingredients is short and sweet! You only need 3 simple ingredients for a fuss-free recipe anyone can easily make. See the recipe card at the bottom of the post for the nutritional values!

Ingredients for homemade strawberry yogurt recipe on a white background.
  • Strawberries: Blend strawberries into a smooth consistency! When combined with the yogurt you get all the amazing strawberry flavor and a natural sweetness.
  • Greek Yogurt: Use an unsweetened Greek yogurt to keep this strawberry yogurt recipe sugar-free, or opt for one with the lowest sugar you can find if you’re ok with a low sugar strawberry yogurt!
  • Vanilla Extract: The vanilla extract adds more dimension to this yogurt. You could also get a vanilla Greek yogurt, but make sure it has no added sugar.

🍲 Ingredient Substitutions

  • Berries: Any berries would work in this yogurt recipe if you prefer a different taste. Blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries would all work!
  • Yogurt: I love using Greek yogurt for extra protein, but feel free to use a different yogurt if you prefer. It is best to opt for a thicker plain yogurt since the strawberries will thin it out. Theoretically, sour cream could work, but it will be more tangy and won’t be as healthy.
  • Extract: You can customize the flavor profile by playing around with an almond extract or even a lemon extract!

🔪 How To Make Strawberry Yogurt

💭 Expert Tips

  • Remove Excess Water: Dry the strawberries well, reducing any excess water.
  • For Best Flavor: Make sure to use ripe strawberries for the fullest flavor.
  • Do Not Use Frozen Berries: Fresh strawberries are best to use. Frozen berries will make the yogurt too watery.
  • Blender Options: If you do not own a food processor, you can blend the strawberries with a high speed blender or add them to a large bowl and mash into a puree. Mashing the berries will result in some chunky pieces of strawberries in yogurt.

📖 Variations 

  • Strawberry Banana Yogurt: Combine 1 cup of diced strawberries with 1 medium banana, blending in the food processor. You’ll get the best yogurt with creamy texture and a fresh strawberry banana flavor.
  • Low Fat Strawberry Yogurt Bark: Spread your yogurtfs with strawberry puree into a thin layer on a baking sheet. Top with real fruit, if desired. Place the sheet in the freezer for a few hours. Once the bark is frozen solid you can break into pieces or use a pizza cutter to form perfect bars for a handy snack!
  • Strawberry Frozen Yogurt: Ice cream lovers, transform your yogurt into a creamy treat! It is best to use whole milk yogurt for this, as it will result in non-icy frozen yogurt. Low fat milk yogurt or nonfat milk yogurt will not have the ideal texture.
  • Sweetened Yogurt: This is a 3 ingredient strawberry yogurt with no sugar. If you prefer extra sweetness add a little honey or maple syrup.

❓Recipe FAQs

IS STRAWBERRY YOGURT HEALTHY?

It depends! Strawberry flavored yogurt is not always going to be a healthy option. Some yogurts will contain ingredients like “natural flavor,” high fructose corn syrup, other added sugars, guar gum, cellulose gum, kosher gelatin, or artificial sweeteners.

While cane sugar might seem like a better option, it still is a refined sugar source. It is also important to avoid coloring for artificial sources, and instead opt for vegetable juice concentrate to add color. Alternatively, you’ll find the best color by simply using real strawberries!

This strawberry Greek yogurt recipe tastes good and is good for you! The strawberry puree and plain greek yogurt combine for a wholesome snack, rich in active cultures like s. Thermophilus and l. Bulgaricus. Not only is it a gut-healthy food, but it also caters to a low calorie diet. Yogurt can be a good option for maintaining a healthy weight! Just be sure to check the nutrition facts on the actual package of the Greek yogurt you choose for the most accurate information. You want one with less sugar or no sugar at all.

HOW CAN I ENSURE THAT THE YOGURT SETS PROPERLY AND HAS A CREAMY TEXTURE?

To keep this yogurt with strawberries thick and creamy be sure to fully dry the sliced strawberries, removing any excess water. It is also best to use fresh strawberries as frozen ones will result in runny yogurt.

WHAT DO I DO IF MY YOGURT IS TOO RUNNY?

If you find that this strawberry Greek yogurt is too runny you can easily fix this problem! The best ways to thicken the yogurt is either adding a little bit of corn starch or tapioca starch.
