Instant Soft-Serve Fro-Yo in a Blender! Tropical Dream

I recently saw a very intriguing post on Healthy Happy and Whole about making your own soft-serve frozen yogurt in a blender. This recipe is ice-cream-maker-free and only takes about five minutes. I made a few changes to the original recipe, which is for papaya berry yogurt, and made a pineapple strawberry yogurt topped with coconut flakes. Ah! The flavors of summer, dreams of paradise islands I hope to visit someday… why can’t it be summer now?!

This tasted delicious, just like soft-serve from a frozen yogurt store. The only problem was I didn’t blend for long enough, so I still had a bunch of fruit chunks in the fro-yo. But overall, the creamy texture and captivating fruity flavor added up to a brilliant and guilt-free dessert! And this is a recipe easily adapted to new ingredients, different fruit combinations… the choices are endless!

Tropical Dream Instant Soft-Serve Fro-Yo

Makes: one generous serving

instant tropical dream fro-yo


  • 2 tbls plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbl honey
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1 medium-large frozen strawberry
  • Optional: about 2 tbls sweetened coconut flakes, for topping


I should have chopped the strawberry and pineapple before putting them in the blender, but I ended up doing it afterward. After chopping as needed, place all ingredients except topping in blender and blend for about 5 minutes or until desired texture is reached. Spoon fro-yo into small bowl, top with coconut, and delve into a bowl of frozen tropical goodness!

  1. Loved your combination!! I’ve also been dreaming about using other tropical flavors… Specially since summer is just around the corner and it will soon be mango season.

  2. I can’t wait for you to start making this for the rest of us. There’s going to be a line, but I want to be in front.

    1. Especially if I add peanut butter into the mix somehow…:)

  3. This sounds like the smoothie I make, only I put liquid in it so it’s a smoothie and not frozen yogurt consistency. I’ll try it this way.
