use up quart of yogurt

Long story short, I made yogurt a few weeks ago and both quarts (including the one no one had stuck a spoon in!) are threatening to go bad (I spooned off pink spots this morning--the yogurt itself is fine). So I'll keep using the one carton over granola for breakfast, but how can I use up the other quart? Muffins? I could make a bunch and freeze them?

Frozen yogurt, smoothies, yogurt popsicles, yogurt bread, use in place of sour cream.

Thank you! No ice cream maker or popsicle molds here. Can I freeze smoothie-size portions of yogurt? Maybe in muffin tins?

Re: use up quart of yogurt

I saw a recipe yesterday on pinterest for yogurt blueberry cookies! YUM! I also make pizza dough with yogurt..(just 1 cup of yogurt and 1 cup of self risign flur and it makes a very good size pizza..prolly enough for 2 people anyways. Just mix it up good and roll it out..dont go into a circle or anything but more of an oval. Very good!

Yes, you can freeze yogurt, either the whole batch or small portions. It will not be as smooth after freezing but works just fine for smoothies and cooking.

We keep 2 quarts frozen and one in the fridge so we don't run out.

Thank you!!! We are now having pizza for dinner. We have leftover marinara in the fridge and I just took a block of mozzarella out of the freezer. We have mushrooms I can saute. I love "free" meals that use stuff up.

Thank you. I think I'll freeze what's left after dinner in smoothie-size portions.
