Who doesn’t love peanut butter? I for one am a huge fan. I can eat it by the spoonfuls right out of the container. And I often do.

Recently I had been pondering making my very own batch of ice cream or frozen yogurt. I opted for frozen yogurt. It’s a little healthier than ice cream. Don’t get me wrong, ice cream still triumphs frozen yogurt but if you want a delicious, healthier snack, frozen yogurt is definitely a great choice.

This peanut butter frozen yogurt is pretty simple to make. Just 5 simple ingredients combined, loaded into your ice cream maker and churned for barely 20 minutes provides you with a creamy treat that won’t make you feel guilty for eating it. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, just pour the peanut butter frozen yogurt mixture into an air tight container, cover and place in your freezer for a few hours.

Now I’m somewhat picky about what goes into my ice cream. While I love chocolate chips, I feel that they can be a little overpowering in ice cream. I opted to top my fro-yo with chocolate chips but you can definitely add them to your batch during the last 5-10 minutes of churning.

What kind of goodies do you like to add to your ice cream and frozen yogurt?

Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: dessert
Serves: 3 Cups
  • 2 C Greek yogurt (I used Chobani 0%)
  • ¾ C creamy peanut butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ C milk
  • ½ C granulated sugar
  • Chocolate chips for topping (or mixing in, if you prefer)
  1. Mix together the yogurt, milk, sugar, vanilla extract and peanut butter until everything is combined well.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for about ½ hour.
  3. Pour the mixture into the bowl of your ice cream maker. Churn for about 20 minutes or until the mixture freezes well.
  4. Place the frozen yogurt into an air tight container and store in your freezer. This frozen yogurt is pretty firm so you will have to let it thaw a little before serving once you place it in the freezer.

    I love peanut butter anything!! The fact that this is yogurt makes me giddy!!! Time to dust off the ole ice cream maker and get mixing!

      Thanks for stopping by, Tanya! I love this frozen yogurt. Now Ken didn’t like it too much but I thought it was delicious! It is a little tangy since I used Greek Yogurt so if tangy isn’t your thing, you may not like it. But seriously, I was having a hard time NOT eating the mixture before I froze it! It was so good!

  2. says

    Arrrgghhh! All of these ice cream posts are making me want to buy the ice cream attachment for my mixer. Do you think it’s worth it?? I mean, this fro-yo sounds soooooo good. And I’d love to create fun flavors. I just wonder how much I’ll end up using the attachment. Recipe pinned!!

    • Julie says

      I didn’t buy the Ice Cream attachment for mine. I ended up buying a Cuisnart machine. It was cheaper and had better ratings than the KitchenAid attachment! I think I am going to try making actual ice cream this weekend! :) Thanks for pinning, Meghan!

    • Julie says

      OMG, that would be fantastic! Cookies & Cream IS my favorite ice cream. Throw some peanut butter in and you have one fantastic treat!

    This looks great and I love the use of greek yogurt. I just photographed some ice cream I made this week too. Tough to take photos of ice cream in the summer, isn’t it!! Your photo makes me want to dig in with my spoon.

    • Julie says

      It sure is! It was starting to melt fast. I open my sliding glass door when taking photos because I get better lighting that way. Once that hot, humid air swept in, that frozen yogurt starting melting fast!

      Thank you so much for stopping by, Holly!

    This sounds delicious – I can just imagine how good it’d be on a warm brownie or something. Yummy! Okay, need to get control of myself before I go on a must-make-this-right-this-second rampage ;)

    • Julie says

      Sure is! There are directions in the post but here you go! “If you don’t have an ice cream maker, just pour the peanut butter frozen yogurt mixture into an air tight container, cover and place in your freezer for a few hours.”

  7. says

    Yum!!! Looks delicious… I can so eat peanut butter straight out of the jar as well. In fact, when I was pregnant that was my go to snack of choice. {its protein :)} Great recipe… who doesn’t love peanut butter and chocolate chips! So gonna try this next time I make fro-yo!

    • Julie says

      I often come home from work, usually hungry and needing a quick fix to hold me over until dinner is ready. Peanut butter is usually my go to snack! I just love it so much. I even have a jar of it in one of my desk drawers at work!

      Thanks for stopping by, Krista!

    What about subbing the sugar for another sweetener? Will it still work? I’ve never made frozen yogurt so I wasn’t sure if it was necessary for the chemistry of it all.

    • Julie says

      I think it will work. I am new at ice cream making so I am not 100% sure but I know that you can buy ice cream made with Splenda so you should be able to make it yourself as well. :)

    • Julie says

      It’s always great to find recipes that the men will enjoy! Thanks for stopping by, Dorothy!

  9. says

    Oh! I totally forgot about peanut butter for ice cream ingredients! I’ve never tasted it but I bet this is delicious…and it sounds like very simple to make too. I need a big bowl of this ice cream and relax… :)

    • Julie says

      If you love peanut butter, you will love peanut butter frozen yogurt and peanut butter ice cream! This was so easy to make. Once the churning started, it was done in less than 20 minutes!

  10. says

    I never knew making frozen yogurt could be that simple!! I absolutely LOVE peanut butter. I’ll be trying this recipe real soon!

  11. says

    I seriously need to get an ice cream machine! Peanut butter is oh so good…I admit to licking the knife after making the kids sandwiches.
    Thank you for sharing on Foodie Friday

    Hi Julia, I am requesting permission to use your Peanut Butter Yogurt recipe in a cookbook. Please e-mail me privately and I will tell you more about it. By the way, I consider myself a “peanut butter addict” and my husband is a craft beer “snob.” I think we would all get along!
