This creamy, healthy frozen yogurt recipe is churned with honey and fragrant, floral Earl Grey tea. Topped with juicy clementines and a touch of cardamom, for a healthy dessert recipe that is easy to make but sure to impress, churn a batch of Earl Grey Frozen Yogurt.
I find most people look at me a little sideways as I order ice cream for dessert when eating out in the dead of winter while they all order warm fruit cobbler or molten lava cakes. I supposed frozen treats are more of a summer dessert. But me? I’m a year-round ice cream lover. It’s never too cold for smooth, creamy frozen treats in my opinion. My favorite is Cherry Cheesecake Ice Cream. Cheesecake ice cream swirled with fresh sweet cherry compote and graham crackers. It tastes just like eating cherry cheesecake!
But rich ice creams are a once in a while treat. We can’t all be scarfing down gobs of full octane ice cream all the time lest we not fit into our skinny jeans. So more often you’ll find me enjoying healthier frosty treats like Paleo Raspberry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. Dairy-free and absolutely no added sugar, this is my go-to ice cream recipe when my sweet tooth comes knocking. Cacao nibs, plump raspberries and sweetness from bananas, this is one tasty ice cream.
Not to be ignored, the close relative to my beloved ice cream is frozen yogurt, another favorite dessert of mine. There you are in the grocery, picking up a pint of what you believe to be a healthier option. But so many times you’ll find store-bought versions while lower in fat, they’re usually packed with as much if not more sugar than their full fat counterparts! This frozen yogurt recipe is here to rescue you from the misleading brand name versions.
Smooth, creamy plain yogurt is churned with the floral, almost citrusy notes of Earl Grey tea along with the natural sugar of raw honey. That’s it! You’re got fresh frozen yogurt. How easy was that? With only 5 minutes of effort on your part, you have a healthy dessert that won’t feel you leaving guilty after enjoying it. Topping this frozen yogurt with sweet clementines allows you to get more sweetness in a healthy way. A dash of cardamom is the perfect finishing touch.
Earl Grey Frozen Yogurt
- 3 3/4 cups Greek yogurt
- 6 ounces Earl Grey tea brewed strong and chilled
- 1/3 cup raw honey see notes
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 3 clementines peeled and sectioned
- additional raw honey for drizzling optional
- In a large bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, tea, honey and salt.
- Churn in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions or pour into a shallow glass or metal baking dish. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes, stir then return to the freezer for 15 minutes more. Continue stirring and returning to freezer until desired consistency is reached.
- Serve topped with 4 clementine sections, a sprinkle of cardamom and a small drizzle of raw honey.
- I used Honey Ridge Farms Clover Honey Creme

I made a whole lot of jars of infused syrups. My girlfriend suggested I make some Rooibos & Naartjie flavored froyo, so I’m going to appropriate this recipe. I’ll be back with some real feedback
I adore frozen yogurt year round too! Someone once told me there’s a theory floating around that says you actually should eat cold things like ice cream and other frozen treats in the winter because it somehow warms you up by making your body over compensate or something, and you burn more calories which warms you up – it was quite fuzzy and who knows if it’s true, even, but seeing as I do enjoy frozen treats in the winter (and yes, my winters are cold!!), maybe there’s something to it? Who knows… This does look delicious, and I’ve been meaning to try tea-flavored ice cream or frozen yogurt soon!
I absolutely LOVE early grey flavors in ice cream or frozen yogurt! Definitely pinned this to try later!
I am so curious to try it myself. Sounds amazing!
Years ago I had some delicious earl grey ice cream at a restaurant, and I’ve been meaning to try to recreate it ever since. I’m so going to try this! Seriously, you have no idea how excited this makes me. 🙂
Oh wow! That’s awesome!
Oh wow, this looks so delicious. What a fantastic combination 🙂 Love the flavours

My daughter and I love to go out for frozen yogurt together. I need to get her in the kitchen and make our own. This flavor is perfect for me.
Yes, I need to make it more often too!
I LOVE Fro Yo….and especially when it’s a flavour that I can totally justify eating for breakfast! Pinned 🙂
Haha, I totally agree!
Words cannot describe how much I love this recipe. I am making it this afternoon so I can enjoy it tonight. All my favorite things in one little dish of yum!
Aww, Kate will love that! Thanks Candace!
