    Hi,

    I have frozen natural yogurt and fruit yogurts before, it is okay, but I general tend to eat it a frozen yogurt dessert rather than let it thaw totally out.

    I make my own yogurt, using a live yogurt sometimes as a starter. Half a pot is enough for a batch so I freeze the rest, which is fine for the next time I need some. So yes, it's fine and retains it's 'live' properties

    Hmm, I had read that this was possible and tried it a few weeks ago, only to be disappointed with the result. At least I had only done 1 litre and not 2!

    I think the problem is that yoghurt never really regains its original texture once defrosted: it gets a bit lumpy / grainy. Unlike milk that defrosts perfectly.

    I only freeze it in small portions, maybe that makes a difference? If I'm going to eat it rather than using as a starter I would add a spoonful of muesli so maybe that soaks up any 'wetness'? I'll look more carefully next time

    I've never frozen yogurt.


    I do make dauphinoise potatoes with crème fraiche and freeze a portion. That works. It's a bit dry but I add a little milk before reheating.
