Now, here’s how to make your own refreshing Irish Cream Frozen Yogurt at home with simple steps!

Prep time: 25 mins | Cook time: 5 mins | Freeze time: 6 hrs | Total time: 6 hrs 30mins
Step 1: Gelatin mixture

In a small bowl, mix unflavored gelatin and water together. Set it aside.

Step 2: Mixture for base

In a saucepan, combine low-fat milk, plain low-fat yogurt, Baileys Irish Cream, sugar, and light corn syrup over low heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves.

Step 3: Creating the mixture

Add the gelatin mixture to the saucepan and keep stirring until completely dissolved. Remove it from the heat and let it cool in room temperature.

Step 4: Chilling the mixture

Transfer it to a refrigerator or freezer and let it chill for about an hour or until it reaches below room temperature.

Step 5: Pouring mixture into ice cream maker

Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker, and churn following the manufacturer’s instructions until you achieve a soft-serve consistency (usually takes around 20-25 minutes).

Step 6: Freezing

Transfer to a container then freeze solid for at least another four hours or overnight.

That’s all there is to it! You now have your own homemade Irish Cream Frozen Yogurt. Serve with whipped cream on top for extra indulgence.

Note: If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can still make this using the “freeze-and-stir” method. Freeze the mixture in a shallow pan. After one hour, scrape frozen edges towards center of pan using a fork. Then repeat every thirty minutes for three more times or until semi-frozen texture is achieved.

Ah, now this is where the fun begins! Great recipes are those that can be easily modified to make them more personalized or adaptable to individual preferences. And this Irish Cream Frozen Yogurt Recipe is no exception.

Firstly, if you want to make your frozen yoghurt extra decadent, swap out the plain low-fat yoghurt for Greek yoghurt. Yes, it may have a few more calories and higher fat content but it’s worth a treat every now and then. Also, adding some fresh strawberries or mango frozen chunks in with the recipe can make for a refreshing fruity twist.

If you’re not a fan of Irish Cream Liqueur, try replacing it with Baileys Mint or Salted Caramel. Both of these flavors are perfect for creating an indulgent dessert that will tantalize your taste buds.

If you’re looking to keep the calories and sugar at a minimum – as we all should from time-to-time – then try using natural frozen yoghurt instead of cream regular. Personally, I love NSA frozen yogurt as it really preserves the clean and tangy taste of the yoghurt without overwhelming it with sugar.

Finally, if you’re feeling experimental, try mixing in some Oreos, peanut butter or semi-sweet chocolate into your Baileys Frozen Yogurt. These tasty additions can take your frozen treat to another level of indulgence.

Whatever your preferences may be, always make sure that you adjust your recipe ingredients accordingly and use up-to-date techniques that won’t affect the quality of the final product. Trust me, with all these substitutions and variations, you’ll never run out of scrumptious ways to enjoy this ice cream-like dessert!

Serving and Pairing

I believe the best way to enjoy Irish Cream Frozen Yogurt is by serving it in a sugar cone or a waffle cone. The combination of the creamy frozen yogurt and the crispy cone is just irresistible! Of course, you can also enjoy it in a cup or a bowl, with a spoon.

To make your homemade frozen yogurt extra special, you can add some toppings to it. One of my personal favorites is crushed Oreo cookies. The crunchiness of the cookies and the sweetness of the cream create an amazing texture and flavor contrast that will blow your mind. You can also try topping it with fresh strawberries or sliced mango for a refreshing burst of fruitiness.

If you’re feeling a bit naughty, you can drizzle some peanut butter or salted caramel sauce over your Irish Cream Frozen Yogurt. The richness and nuttiness of the peanut butter or the smoky sweetness of the caramel sauce will complement the creaminess of the frozen yogurt perfectly.

Another excellent way to enjoy Irish Cream Frozen Yogurt is by pairing it with some Baileys Irish Cream liqueur. Pour a shot into a glass, add some ice if desired, and serve it alongside the frozen yogurt. Sip on the creamy liqueur and take bites of the cold and refreshing frozen yogurt in between sips. It’s a match made in heaven!

Lastly, if you’re looking for something more classic, you can pair your homemade frozen yogurt with plain yogurt or Greek yogurt. The tanginess of the yogurt will balance out the sweetness of the frozen yogurt and create a harmonious taste that will satisfy any palate.

No matter how you serve and pair your Irish Cream Frozen Yogurt, I am confident that you will love every bite and every sip!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

Looking for a boozy treat? Look no further than this Irish Cream Frozen Yogurt.

One of the best things about this Irish Cream Frozen Yogurt recipe is that it can be made ahead of time and stored in the freezer for later use. Once you’ve made the dessert, be sure to let it freeze completely before transferring it to an airtight container. This will help prevent ice crystals from forming inside the mixture.

When you’re ready to serve, let the frozen yogurt sit at room temperature for a few minutes to soften before serving. It’s also best to use it within a week or two of making it as it loses its freshness over time. If you’d like to store it longer, you can always vacuum seal it.

If you need to reheat your frozen yogurt due to being too hard or difficult to scoop, place it in the microwave for just a few seconds until softened. Be cautious not to overheat, as this could ruin the recipe’s texture.

You can also adjust this recipe according to any dietary restrictions or preferences by using low-fat or non-fat plain yogurt instead of regular Greek yogurt. Additionally, substituting light corn syrup with honey could add an extra layer of sweetness that different individuals may prefer.

No matter how you choose to personalize this recipe, storing and reheating it properly ensures that you get full enjoyment out of each bite every time!

Whether you enjoy it on its own or topped with your favorite toppings, this frozen yogurt is sure to impress.

To ensure that your Irish Cream Frozen Yogurt turns out perfectly, here are some helpful tips to keep in mind.

Firstly, for a smoother and creamier texture, use low-fat or Greek yogurt. Plain yogurt works better than flavored yogurt because it has less sugar and artificial sweeteners.

Secondly, when heating or boiling the mixture of sugar, water, and corn syrup, make sure to stir constantly to prevent burning. It’s important to dissolve all the sugar crystals completely in the liquid.

Thirdly, pouring the hot sugar syrup mixture into the blended yogurt creates a smooth mixture that easily accepts other ingredients like Irish Cream Liqueur without a grainy texture.

Fourthly, make sure to follow the instructions properly to get the right amount of unflavored gelatin; too much can make your frozen yogurt chewy while adding too little can result in the formation of ice crystals.

Fifthly, before churning the frozen mix in an ice cream maker, ensure that it’s thoroughly chilled. If not sufficiently chilled, it won’t freeze correctly and will be more like a slushie.

Lastly, don’t add too many flavors or ingredients as this can end up overpowering the Irish Cream flavor that gives life to this recipe. A topped scoop of whipped cream with light chocolate shavings is enough for perfect decoration and thickness.


Before wrapping up this article, let me address some common questions you may have about this Irish Cream Frozen Yogurt recipe. In this section, I’ll cover crucial concerns such as the shelf life of frozen yogurt and ways to avoid ice crystals formation. Keep reading to ensure you have all the information you need to create a delicious and creamy dessert that your taste buds will love.

Can you put alcohol in frozen yogurt?

Incorporating liqueurs or spirits into ice cream and frozen yogurt can be a clever and advantageous choice. Due to the properties of alcohol, the mixture remains pliable and easy to scoop. This solves one of the most significant obstacles of making frozen desserts at home and results in an indulgent treat that is sure to impress.

Do you just freeze yogurt to make frozen yogurt?

Get ready to turn your yogurt into a delightful soft-serve or a thick milkshake-like consistency by churning it for about 17 to 20 minutes on your machine. Once your yogurt has thickened to your desired texture, scoop it into a freezer container and level the surface. To avoid any unwanted ice crystals, place a piece of parchment paper over the yogurt and press it down gently. Allow the yogurt to freeze until it is rock solid, either for at least 6 hours, or overnight.

Can you put Irish cream in the freezer?

Irish cream should not be frozen as it undergoes separation when frozen. The milk component freezes and separates from the alcohol, creating destructive ice crystals that ruin the texture.

Can you freeze Baileys thick cream?

It is important to store this item in the refrigerator and to consume it within three days of opening or by the date indicated on the lid. Please note that it is not intended for home freezing.

Bottom Line

In conclusion, this Irish Cream Frozen Yogurt recipe is a delicious and easy way to satisfy your dessert cravings this summer.
