How to Freeze Greek Yogurt

Annie Hastings/Demand Media

Greek yogurt has a thicker texture than traditional yogurts. The yogurt has been strained to remove the whey so that it contains a richer texture. The yogurt typically contains sheep’s or goat’s milk in Greece, but it can be made from cow’s milk as well. Greek yogurt can be frozen in the same manner as traditional yogurt. The cultures will remain dormant when you freeze it, but they will return once the yogurt thaws.

Pour the Greek yogurt into a small freezer container. Freezing it in smaller portions will allow it thaw more easily, and you will only need to remove what you need so that you do not waste any yogurt.
