Frozen apricot and honey yoghurt recipe

Fresh apricots, yoghurt and honey are the main ingredient in this delicious frozen treat so you and the kids will both love it!

Serving Size:

3 cups



  • 400g ripe apricots, halved
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 5ml (1 tsp ) vanilla extract
  • 520g (2 cups) natural yoghurt
  • honey to taste


Sprinkle the apricots with sugar and vanilla and toss to combine. Set aside for about one hour and then blitz apricots in a food processor until a smooth paste.

Stir through the yogurt and add honey to taste (some apricots are quite tart so you might need a little more honey).

Churn the frozen yoghurt in an ice cream machine and then freeze, or pour into a plastic container and place in the freezer, after an hour, whisk the yoghurt to prevent ice crystals forming and repeat this process a few times.


  • For a creamier finish you can use Greek yoghurt.
  • If you don't have apricots you can use peaches or berries in their place.
  • Sprinkling the fruit with sugar is called macerating and is an important step that releases the juices from the fruit.
