    I think you can freeze this because when I was a member of slimming world one of our favourites was to freeze a toffee muller light with low fat fromage frais and a small packet of crushed maltesers. Yum Yum and (almost ) fat free ;D ;D

    Also I freeze those tubes of yoghurt for kids and they help keep the lunchbox cool in summer and then can be eaten when defrosted.

    So i think the (rather longwinded : ) answer is yes!

    Hi everyone,
    just sorting the fridge out and have found some natural yoghurt that goes out of date on the 10/1. Can I freeze this as I wont be needing it til 14/1? The obvious thing would be to shuffle menu about to use it earlier but have tried this and wont work i'm afraid.
    Thanks

    When i was in Canada ( a holiday many years ago!!!) i remember having frozen yoghurt as a desert, and it was lovely!!! so im sure that there is no problem freezing yoghurt, as long as its eaten soon after defrosting.

    The whole point of yogurt is that active bacteria flourish and result in thickening and souring of the milk. You don't need to freeze the yogurt it will be fine anyway! Freezing yogurt alters the texture of the yogurt. This is fine if you just want to preserve some culture to make your own at a later date (e.g. if going away on holiday), but really not advisable if you want to use it as yogurt.

    Frozen yogurt is a bit different and normally eaten frozen as an ice cream substitute.

    Blimey this site has everything!! I was wondering this question myself. My daughters have become addicted to smoothies from a new shop which has opened in Norwich (Gourmet Joes) and they use frozen yoghurt in their drinks. So much so I have had to buy a magic bullet and I was wondering if I could freeze yoghurt (in lots of flavours to suit all tastes - rather than have to buy the expensive ready frozen stuff). As I will put it in the blender still frozen (instead of ice) I am hoping that is going to be OK as it won't have time to split. Will let you know how I get on!

    Hiya

    An older thread seems to be of divided opinions here on yoghurt, but I've added your question to it in the hopes that it will be of some help.

    I'm pretty sure that I've seen someone post that fromage frais freezes OK - but I might be corrected

    In the summer I have successfully frozen little tubs of yoghurt and the children have had them as a yoghurt lolly - pop a lolly stick in them before putting in the freezer.

    I've often frozen yoghurt when they've been on special offer in the shops & I find if you thaw them out within 2 or 3 weeks of freezing, they seem to be ok. But leave them any longer & they separate & thin a little bit, but taste fine.
    The bigger the bargain, the better I feel.

    I should mention that there's only one of me, don't confuse me with others of the same name.

    Freezing Yoghurts for Lunch Boxes
    A friend asked me this morning whether it would be okay for her to freeze yoghurts to put in her sons packed lunch box as he wouldn't eat one last week as it had gone warm and tasted horrible apparently:rolleyes: I said I'd ask on here as you're all a wonderful source of info. So, any ideas? I'm wondering about the defrosting time for them as well on account of them being defrosted in time for lunch at 12.15 ?:confused:
  • PONDSAVER
    I freeze frubes the long tubes of yoghurt (only bought when on offer or reduced) and they keep the sarnies and other bits cool whilst they are defrosting. It suggests freezing them on the packet so I see no reason why not with other yoghurts and if it is still a bit frozen then it will be more like a sorbe.

    AT slimming world we freeze low fat yoghurts as an alternative to ice cream. I use muller lights.
  • tawnyowls
    Should be no problem - you can buy whipped frozen yogurt in cones as an alternative to icecream, thus normal yogurt should be freezable. Two caveats: (1) because of expansion, the tub might split, thus it would be sensible to put the carton into a small plastic tub in case of spillage and (2), it'll probably separate, so mum should warn kid about that and tell him to mix it thorougly before eating.

    Can I freeze fromage frais?
    My baby has decided that he no longer wants petits filous for his breakfast, so I'm left with 24 pots to use by 16 Dec! So can I freeze them like they do those ones in the tubes? I thought that may be nice as a change from ice cream.

    Thanks again for all your help.
