Frozen Yogurt the Kids Can (Almost) Make Themselves


We call this a little mango magic: break out five simple ingredients and your food processor, and make your own frozen yogurt. (Yep, you don't even need an ice cream machine.) This treat's so easy the kids can do most of the work — just help them with the chopping and they'll be on their way.

This recipe comes from MasterChef Junior winner Jasmine Stewart. You can watch her make it — along with fancy crispy wonton cups for serving — in her online class Cooking with MasterChef Junior: Jasmine's Delightful Desserts .

Mango lime frozen yogurt

Yield: Makes 1 quart (950 ml)


  • 4 cups (680 g) frozen cubed mango
  • ½ cup (120 ml) plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons light honey or agave syrup, plus more to taste


Add all ingredients to a food processor and purée for 5 to 6 minutes, scraping down the sides halfway through. Purée until completely smooth. Add more honey, if you like. Scrape the froyo into a chilled 9x4-inch (23x10-cm) metal loaf pan. You can eat it right away or cover with plastic wrap and freeze until firm, about 2 hours.
