Green Apple Fro-Yo

Typically, you need an ice cream maker to make your favorite cold treat, but not this time! In this applesauce/frozen-yogurt mash-up, you are a human ice cream maker — no electricity needed! Also? It’s not really green, but we liked how it sounded.

Large metal or plastic mixing bowl
Measuring cups
Mixing spoon 


1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 1⁄2 cup unsweetened applesauce (homemade or store-bought)
pinch of salt


Wash your hands with soap and water, then gather all your equipment and ingredients and put them on a counter.

  1. Put the all the ingredients in the bowl and stir well. Carefully put the bowl in the freezer.
  2. After 1 hour, using a fork, stir the mixture, being careful to get the more-frozen edges mixed in with the soft center. Repeat every half hour, until the mixture is frozen but still creamy, about 3 hours. Serve right away.
