How to Make Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Frozen Yogurt
Let’s talk about just how easy this easy frozen yogurt recipe is to make!
You only need a few ingredients: plain yogurt (use full fat), sugar, vanilla, peanut butter, and chocolate chips. So make sure to use the best quality products you can find.
Like I mentioned earlier, there’s no cooking involved with this Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Frozen Yogurt (unlike most ice cream recipes). Simply mix the yogurt, sugar, vanilla, and peanut butter together to get started, then chill the mixture (don’t skip this step).
You do need an ice cream maker for this recipe. I LOVE my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and use it year round. It really is a good investment, especially when you discover how easy it is to make homemade frozen yogurt!
After chilling that yummy peanut butter-yogurt mixture, you’ll transfer it to your ice cream maker and start churning. Since every ice cream maker is different, you’ll want to follow the directions in your owner’s manual.
About 5 minutes before it’s done churning, you’ll mix in the chocolate chips.
After adding the chocolate chips, freeze the mixture in an airtight container until firm. You can also eat the mixture before freezing, if you just can’t wait. It will have a soft serve texture.
This Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Frozen Yogurt is a recipe you’re sure to enjoy all summer long, so make it today!

About ingredient substitutions ... someone asked me if this recipe would work with Greek yogurt. I told her to test it out and let me know, and the mixture ended up being too thick for her ice cream maker to mix. So stick with regular yogurt.
