Mango Ginger Frozen Yogurt

And a giveaway!

Sorry, I sometimes get a bit ahead of myself.  First, this awesome ice cream.  I was scouring the aisles at my grocery store, looking for something that would perfectly epitomize a delicious summer treat.  Knowing that I wanted to make ice cream (our air conditioner is broken, it is 80 degrees inside our apartment, and I cannot even *think* about turning the oven on), I wanted spring flavors that were a little bit unexpected, but still completely accessible.

When we were in Hawaii in September, we had this milkshake-type drink made with fresh ginger that was, basically, the best thing Chad and I ate the whole trip (and I think it was about $2, unlike many of our rather expensive dinners).  So I figured the combination of fresh ginger, sugar, and some creamy base would be a winner.  And then I added the mango because it wasn’t light or summery enough without a little bit of fruit.

And I did something else, which I’ve done a few times with great results: I used half regular yogurt and half greek yogurt as the base for the frozen yogurt, which gives a creamy richness that’s hard to achieve in a frozen yogurt, as opposed to ice cream.  And it’s even fat free!  No joke, I’m pretty sure this is the perfect dessert for this time of year.

Which brings us to the giveaway.  A few weeks ago, Stonyfield Farm emailed me to see if I wanted to sample their new organic greek yogurt, called Oikos.  And, even better, they agreed to send a bunch of coupons to one of my lucky readers!  So if you’re in the mood to make this recipe, or any other greek yogurt recipe, leave a comment below, and I’ll randomly select a winner!  The winner will receive 4 coupons for 5.3 oz Oikos yogurts and 1 coupon for a 16 oz container of yogurt, along with a reusable shopping bag.  The cutoff for posting comments is Sunday at noon, and I’ll post the winner on Monday morning!

    i love mangoes and it rarely does get into yogurts and the like because they are devoured right away…Love the pale colored frozen delight…

  • 2 Lucy // May 26, 2009 at 6:09 am

    This looks so appealing… just love, love mangoes.

    I recently found your blog and it’s wonderful!! I’ve been taking a break & hopefully soon will be back to blogging…

  • 3 Sara @ Our Best Bites // May 26, 2009 at 6:12 am

    mmm…mango sorbet is one of my favorite treats, I’ll have to try the fro-yo!

  • 4 Amy // May 26, 2009 at 6:24 am

    Your timing could NOT be better. I just cracked open my new ice cream maker yesterday. I christened it with a vanilla frozen yogurt made with Greek yogurt for serving with sliced fruit. SO GOOD! And mango and ginger are two of my FAVORITE flavors. I may even make this for a dinner party I’m having this weekend. Perfect end to a good summer meal. :)

    By the way, I highly recommend going with ALL Greek yogurt instead of the half and half route. The texture and flavor is AMAZING. But I really like frozen yogurt that actually has the zing flavor of yogurt.

  • 5 Hillary // May 26, 2009 at 6:30 am

    yummm! those mango and ginger flavors sound incredible. and I LOVE greek yogurt… what a decadent frozen treat!

  • 6 stephchows // May 26, 2009 at 7:40 am

    Stoneyfield sent me some coupons for sampling a little while ago and all of their stuff is AMAZING!! I love subbing yogurt in my muffins :)

  • 7 Amy // May 26, 2009 at 7:44 am

    That frozen yogurt looks very refreshing!  What a perfect treat for summer.

  • 8 Jendeis // May 26, 2009 at 7:57 am

    The fro yo looks delicious!  I recently started having Greek yogurt with fruit and nuts for breakfast everyday and I am loving it!

  • 9 Claire // May 26, 2009 at 8:05 am

    Wow…that looks just fantastic!  I really like Greek yogurt and would love to use it more but it’s too expensive for me to have everyday…so a coupon would be great!

  • 10 Katherine // May 26, 2009 at 8:07 am

    yum. As the others have said, it also just LOOKS so good!

    I think that I have had that brand of greek yogurt before. So yes, I’d love to be in the running for more of it. :-)

  • 11 Alyson // May 26, 2009 at 8:32 am

    I would love to try this recipe! I’ve done some frozen yogurts in my ice cream maker with so-so results. I am very intrigued by the combination of regular and Greek yogurt for better texture. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for those Oikos coupons!

  • 12 Erin // May 26, 2009 at 9:03 am

    Yum!  We are lucky enough to have a source of plentiful, free mangoes – my very generous aunt has several trees on her property.  I can’t wait to try the frozen yogurt!

  • 13 bridget // May 26, 2009 at 9:11 am

    How fun!  I love Oikos!!!

  • 14 Melissa S // May 26, 2009 at 9:14 am

    Whoa…this looks amazing!  I love to make homemade ice cream.  This would be a great alternative and much healthier!  Thanks for the great recipe and I’m keeping my fingers crossed the I win!

  • 15 Monica // May 26, 2009 at 10:02 am

    Just yesterday I made your nutella ice cream.. and it came out perfectly! This one will be next on my list.

  • 16 zoe // May 26, 2009 at 10:02 am

    This ice cream sounds light and delicious. I wonder how some candied ginger would taste sprinkled on top! I love greek yogurt, use it on everything from soup to egg salad.

  • 17 Joy // May 26, 2009 at 10:27 am

    No freakin’ way!!! I was just thinking about making a mango-ginger frozen yogurt last night because I have a bag of mangoes. Alas, I ran out of greek yogurt! I always use only greek yogurt (2%) for my frozen yogurt, and I don’t miss the full-cream ice cream version at all. :-)

  • 18 Sunski // May 26, 2009 at 10:52 am

    I made some mango sorbet a couple of months ago that required me to put the mango puree through a strainer.  It was a huge hassle, but it never occurred to me to skip that step.  I’m excited to see that your recipe has no such monkey business and will definitely give it a try (if I can find greek yogurt in my little town).

  • 19 Michelle // May 26, 2009 at 11:40 am

    Wow.  This sounds incredibly perfect for a hot day.  Thanks for sharing it!

  • 20 Wendy // May 26, 2009 at 2:07 pm

    I’ve never had greek yogurt before… would love to try it.

  • 21 Kristen // May 26, 2009 at 3:11 pm

    looks so creamy!

  • 22 VCK // May 26, 2009 at 3:20 pm

    I love mangoes, and that looks really good. I have always wanted to try Oikos but have never had it! I love Trader Joe’s version of NF Greek yogurt, though.

  • 23 karmel // May 26, 2009 at 3:51 pm

    I have to make this!! 
    And I love greek yogurt….straight up!

  • 24 ttfn300 // May 26, 2009 at 5:23 pm

    this sounds amazing!  i love my oikos :)

  • 25 Patsyk // May 26, 2009 at 5:42 pm

    Love those flavors! I am planning to jump into ice cream making this summer… it’s my favorite summer time treat!

  • 26 Leslie M. // May 26, 2009 at 6:42 pm

    Oh my goodness, this looks amazing!  I am super excited to try frozen yogurt with Greek yogurt–I had never thought of it!  Great idea!

  • 27 Kristina // May 26, 2009 at 6:55 pm

    I LOVE Stonyfield Farms yogurt!  This looks like the best recipe for the height of mango season.  I’m in Florida and I have friends with mango trees!  They’re swimming in them and I get some of the overspill, yay me!

  • 28 Melissa K // May 27, 2009 at 3:22 am

    Okay, I’ll make a confession that I have not tried the Greek yogurt yet, although I’m a fan of Stonyfield Farm already.  I’m dying to make this as my first homemade ice cream of the year.  Love, love, love mango and can’t wait to try it with the ginger!

  • 29 adele // May 27, 2009 at 4:13 am

    This looks lovely – and one of my friends just got an ice-cream maker, so your (my?) timing couldn’t be any better. :)

  • 30 Jess R. // May 27, 2009 at 9:52 am

    Katy – there’s no law against friends winning the give-away, right?  ;)

  • 31 NS // May 27, 2009 at 1:47 pm

    This looks fabulous!  I love the idea of half and half (greek and regular yogurt).  I made a mango ice cream sI would love to try this out with Oikos.  I’ve seen it at the store, but haven’t bought it yet.

    Thanks so much!

  • 32 Erin // May 27, 2009 at 2:10 pm

    Wow, that looks good! I love mango, and I love ginger- never would have thought to put them together in frozen yogurt! I also like the idea of adding vodka – the last time I tried to make fro yo it froze solid, so maybe this will help!

  • 33 Crystal // May 27, 2009 at 3:43 pm

    I’m so excited about this recipe.  I’ve been wanting to try to make frozen yogurt and this recipe is the winner!  Thanks for posting this.

  • 34 sfordinarygirl // May 27, 2009 at 4:29 pm

    I love greek yogurt with fruit salad and lentil soup.

  • 35 JHayes // May 27, 2009 at 5:27 pm

    Just made a mango lassi with my own home-grown ginger this morning … must have been reading my mind.

  • 36 Aparna // May 27, 2009 at 9:15 pm

    I guess summer desserts couldn’t get better than this, especially with the mango. :)
    Its pretty hot here too. Thank goodness for such lifesavers! :D

  • 37 Anneta // May 27, 2009 at 9:50 pm

    I love Greek Yogurt. I am going to try this recipe this weekend! Thank you for sharing it with us.

  • 38 Josey // May 28, 2009 at 5:02 am

    I really want to make frozen yogurt, but my parents won’t let me buy the pricey greek stuff and I know that frozen yogurt made with regular yogurt won’t taste nearly as creamy!

    Doesn’t stop me from indulging once in a while, though XD

  • 39 Steven // May 28, 2009 at 8:18 am

    OMG-You have really done it this time! Now I know how to break in my brand new ice cream machine-thanks!

  • 40 Bites from other Blogs | Apple IPod Blog'n'Shop // May 28, 2009 at 9:06 am

    […] a delicious – and relatively healthy – frozen treat to enjoy during the summer. Sugar Law’s Mango Ginger Frozen Yogurt is definitely a step above the plain variety of fro-yo. The yogurt features fresh mango, pureed […]

  • 41 snooky doodle // May 28, 2009 at 10:34 am

    oh this is mouth watering! yummy!

  • 42 Annie // May 28, 2009 at 3:02 pm

    Oh, that looks sooo good. Mango has always been my favorite fruit, as well as cherry. My dad fixed my ice cream maker finally, so I’ll be trying this out soon!

  • 43 My Amazing Weight Loss Story // May 28, 2009 at 6:15 pm

    Thanks for writing, I truly enjoyed reading your most recent post. I think you should post more frequently, you obviously have talent for blogging!

  • 44 Jake // May 28, 2009 at 6:29 pm

    This sounds truly delicious! I just made a batch of frozen yogurt, using only Greek yogurt. It was so delicious!

    Basically, I sweetened the yogurt base a little with plain granulated sugar and added a lot of lime zest. Then I made a sauce with frozen cherries and lime juice. The sauce went a little further than I had hoped, but it turned out to have a nicely caramelized taste; however it wasn’t sour enough, so I added some extra lime juice.

    The yogurt was not only a beautiful deep red, but it was so deliciously tart and a perfectly fragrant balance of cherry and lime.

  • 45 Emily Zandy // May 29, 2009 at 4:33 am

    This looks WONDERFUL.  It looks so insanely creamy!  Do you have any left?

  • 46 Michelle // May 29, 2009 at 5:46 am

    Oh this just looks amazing. What a brilliant idea. I’m going to whip some up this weekend.

  • 47 Abi // May 29, 2009 at 10:53 pm


  • 48 K. Smith // May 30, 2009 at 8:23 am

    I have been dying to try their yogurt! That Fro-Yo looks soooo yummy! I need a ice cream maker!

  • 49 Elyse // May 30, 2009 at 9:23 am

    Oh my gah, this frozen yogurt looks amazing!  You’re making my want to run to Hawaii to try that frozen drink, too.  Since I can’t do that, I’ll more than happily settle for this awesome-looking yogurt.  Talk about a delicious flavor combo!!

  • 50 FokusLopss // May 30, 2009 at 1:44 pm

    Good article, Thanks. Thanks.

    I love your site!  I was googling cinnamon pancakes and stumbled across your recipe.  Excited about trying a lot more, too!  Time to go cook some pancakes…

  • 53 Michelle // Jun 1, 2009 at 5:31 am

    Made it on Saturday and it is amazing. And SO EASY. Everyone loves it. I am so glad that I had the forethought to double the batch!

  • 54 Claire // Aug 1, 2009 at 7:56 am

    My granddaughter made this recipe at a party she gave.  It was absolutely great.  I can’t wait until I make it.

  • 55 Vanessa Michelou // Aug 6, 2009 at 12:46 pm

    This sounds awesome! I am making i tonight. Do you know by chance how much frozen yogurt your recipe yields? I’ve had problems with overfilling my machine and having the frozen mix overflow.

  • 56 Vanessa Michelou // Aug 6, 2009 at 6:02 pm

    WOW! I just made this it was amazing! I added a bit of fresh lime juice to the mix. It gave it a nice kick. Tasted like the best soft-serve I have ever had!
