College has undoubtedly grown my dependance on frozen yogurt. The perfect balance between cold, sweet, and refreshing, a dose of fro-yo makes any day infinitely better.

But how sad it is when social norms and healthy habits prevent me from eating said fro-yo at any and all meal times?

I feel as though fro-yo is not only a want, but a need. 

After a friend recommended that I explore some healthy fro-yo options, I quickly realized that frozen yogurt does not, in fact, need to be dairy-based. If you have access to a freezer and a blender, your fro-yo life is about to improve significantly.

  • 1 banana
  • 1-3 tablespoons water milk or nut milk
  • 3-6 ice cubes
  • Toppings and mix ins
  • Step 1

    Grab a banana and freeze it. I find it easier to peel and cut the banana before freezing to avoid the laborious task of slicing an unpeeled frozen banana before blending.
