Citrus frozen yogurt


  • Prep Time10 mins
  • Total Time10 mins
  • Makes1 -1/2 litres (6 cups)
*PLUS Freezing Time: 120 minutes, Standing Time: 20 minutes


  • 2-L container vanilla frozen yogurt

  • 2 lemons

  • 2 limes


  • Remove yogurt container from freezer and let stand at room temperature just until it can be stirred, about 20 minutes, less if the kitchen is very warm. Meanwhile, finely grate peel from lemons and limes. It's easier to gather up the peel if you grate onto waxed paper. Squeeze out 1 tablespoon each of lemon and lime juices.

  • Turn softened yogurt into a large bowl, saving container. Add peels and juices, and stir until evenly distributed. Spoon back into container. (Frozen yogurt, once melted and stirred, loses volume.) Cover and return to the freezer until hardened, about 2 hours. Frozen yogurt will keep well for at least 2 to 3 weeks.
