How long does it take for yoghurt to freeze?
If you’re freezing 1 cup portion sizes, it may take up to 3 hours to freeze all the way through. If you’re trying to freeze an entire quart or more at once, you’ll want to leave your yogurt in the freezer for at least 6 hours, maybe even overnight.
Why does greek yogurt say do not freeze?
Putting yogurt, Greek or otherwise, in the freezer will change the texture. Like sour cream, the yogurt will separate. It’ll be acceptable for cooking if you really want to use it, but otherwise not great to eat on its own.
Can I freeze Greek style yogurt?
You can freeze greek yogurt, but its texture is going to change after defrosting. It’ll lose its smoothness and become a bit chunky. Plus, as a result of separation, it will probably lose a bit of its thickness. Mine, for instance, was very thick but ended up noticeably thinner after thawing.
Does freezing greek yogurt kill the probiotics?
Freezing yogurt will not kill the probiotics. The probiotics will enter a dormant state from the cold temperatures and will awaken when brought back to room temperature. Slowly freezing the yogurt by placing it in a freezer may damage some of the probiotics but the majority should survive.
What happens if I freeze yogurt?
What happens to yogurt when you freeze it? Since it’s partially liquid, yogurt will expand when you freeze it, so make sure that your containers have a little space to allow for expansion. Often yogurt cups have a plastic seal; don’t be surprised if the plastic seal pops under the plastic lid.
Is it OK to freeze yogurt and eat it?
Fresh yoghurt freezes remarkably well for up to two months. Note that upon thawing, the texture may change slightly and appear to be more liquid or grainy than it originally was. As with many products, freezing an unopened and sealed container of yoghurt is best, but you can freeze yoghurt even if opened.

What happens when you freeze Greek yogurt?
Freezing your yogurt could change its look and consistency. If your Greek yogurt is frozen and stored properly, it would still retain its quality, nutritional value, and its active cultures. Some of the bacteria would die, but most become dormant once the yogurt is frozen and become active when it is defrosted.
