This mint chip frozen yogurt recipe from the Sprouted Kitchen Cookbook is brilliant. The recipe combines two parts Greek yogurt with one part cream to make a luscious mint-blasted treat. I shared this gem of a recipe back in 2012 and noticed a lot of you were still searching for it this summer. I thought I’d update the post today, give you a peek, and include some updated links to Sprouted Kitchen.
First off, the frozen yogurt is a breeze to make. Sara uses fresh mint, and then boosts it with a bit of mint extract. Brown rice syrup is used as the sweetener – rich and malty in flavor, with much less edge than refined sugar. If you don’t have access to brown rice syrup, you can swap in maple syrup (I’d use a scant 1/2 cup as a starting point). My one tip when it comes to homemade ice cream or frozen yogurt? Churn to order. Few things are better.

A Few Frozen Yogurt Tips
- If you’re not churning to order, allow to thaw for a few minutes prior to scooping.
- Keep in mind this is yogurt base, so it’s quite a bit tangier than frozen treats make exclusively with cream, milk, or alternative milks. If you like things a bit sweet taste mid-way though churning, and add a bit more brown rice syrup or maple syrup to taste.
A Few Variations
- Add a bit of lemon verbena and/or basil to the mint steeping for added flavor dimension and scent.
- Churn in some ripe strawberries in the final moments for a berry version.
- Churn in some torn peach wedges.
The Sprouted Kitchen Cookbook
A few shots of the book itself. 🙂 The frozen yogurt is one thing, but I have about twenty other recipes earmarked as well. For example, have a look at this beautiful capellini. Or the roasted plum tartines down below. The book is full of inspired, beautifully photographed, whole food recipes – and I suspect you’re all going to love it.
I was lucky to see an early, early version of the book (before it was bound and printed), and wrote a little quote for the back cover. Is it weird to share it here? “The minute I landed on the Sprouted Kitchen website, years ago, I knew I’d stumbled on a kindred spirit. Everything I loved about the site extends itself beautifully into this cookbook – the vibrant focus on whole foods, the enticing photography, the inspired ingredient combinations, and Sara’s approachable voice. I imagine this book being a welcome addition to many kitchens.”
