Honey Lemon Greek Yogurt! Creamy or Frozen…You Decide! {Free Printable}

honey lemon yogurt

Honey, Lemon, Yogurt….three of my absolute FAVORITE things! I have blogged individually about all three to great extent in the past….but today I’m going to share one way I COMBINE them that is SO easy and delicious it ought to be illegal. :-) Add to that the fact that you can also FREEZE this treat and I am definitely in HEAVEN! (See more of My Frozen Treat Obsession HERE.)

The idea for this post is a combination of ideas my sister Rebecca (CampWander.com) and I came up with. After she read about my Frozen Yogurt Dots, she decided to try them with her favorite Honey Greek Yogurt and then got the bright idea to add Lemon Essential Oil to it! Yes, you can take Lemon EO internally if you are using 100% pure essential oils.

Spark Naturals essential oils are Certified Pure PharmaGrade -(CPPharmaGrade™) and are the highest purity and quality available.

In fact, I take 3 capsules with a combination of Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint essential oils everyday to help control my stress hives. (See more in this post:  Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint – The Natural Antihistamine.)

 

How To Make Honey Lemon Greek Yogurt With Lemon Essential Oil

 

The first thing you need to do is, buy or make (view my tutorial for making your own Greek Yogurt HERE) your favorite Greek Yogurt. My favorite Greek yogurt happens to be HONEY…so no sweetening required.

Next, add 3 to 4 drops of Lemon EO per 1 cup of yogurt, mix well, and EAT!  That’s all there is to it!!

(FYI: Store EO-infused yogurt in a glass or stainless steel container because pure essential oils will leach petro chemicals from a plastic carton.)

To make your lemon-infused greek yogurt into Frozen Yogurt DOTS….spoon approximately 1 cup into a sandwich bag…..

Freeze the dots for 1-2 hours, or until yogurt hardens. Eat with abandon!

Kids LOVE these because they think they are eating DESSERT….parents LOVE these because they know they are eating something HEALTHY!  That’s what you call a win-win in the kitchen!

So what did you decide? Creamy???  Frozen??? For ME, it’s an impossible choice! One I’m glad I don’t have to make!  I just eat it BOTH ways. :-)

Some other delicious ways to enjoy this in it’s creamy form is as a fresh fruit dip, a topping for pound cake with fruit, and it’s GREAT in a smoothie!

It’s actually quite incredible how VERSATILE this hard-working essential oil is! (That’s why it’s one of my FAVORITES!)

There are literally HUNDREDS (maybe THOUSANDS!) of uses for it! I thought that fact deserved a salute of some sort….so I made up a special PRINTABLE LIST of some of my favorite ways to use Lemon essential oil. I hope you enjoy! :-)

    Jillee: If starting with plain unflavoured Greek yogurt (the kind I buy in London), how much honey do I add per cup of yogurt? The idea sounds irresistible and I can’t wait to try it, just have to buy the lemon EO. Thanks for this, sounds OK even for a diabetic like me.

  2. Candy says

    LOVE the print out! I just got my new Sparks lemon oil, so you have perfect timing! Thanks so much for what you do!!!! I’ve learned tons from you. What a blessing you are in thousands of people’s lives!!!!!!

    Funny story- I opened my email this morning and saw “Honey Lemon Greek Yogurt” and immediately thought “Oooh! A new face mask to try!!”… Then I read “Creamy or Frozen” and realized that this was not a new face mask but a tasty (and versatile) snack! The more I think about it though, this would make a great face mask…
    Like you said, Jillee, it’s a win-win!!

  4. Rebecca says

    Do I need to add the 5ml bottle of lemon to my order or do they just see the $25 order and add the lemon to it?

    • KimberlyJ says

      Rebecca, I noticed on Facebook that Sparks said to add LEMON as a coupon code…AFTER I placed my order. I’ve emailed them hoping it’s not too late.

  5. Linda F says

    Love the inspiration you provide to me! I printed the chart for the many uses of lemon essential oil and plan to try several. Thanks!

  6. says

    Love this printout too!!! Thank you so much for all your knowledge and info. Order Spark Naturals 4pk and love it!!! Have a great day :)

  7. Melody Green says

    Jillee,

    It doesn’t automatically add to the cart, even going through your link. Any ideas?

    • says

      Melody, it doesn’t show up in your cart…but it will be automatically added to any order over $25. I hope this helps!

  8. KimberlyJ says

    Just placed my first order with Spark and first ever EO order. This will be a learning experience but I’m looking forward to it.

    Sorry Jillee, I replied to Rebecca above but we crossed paths, your post came up after I hit enter. I wasn’t trying to contradict you.

    Such a great post! I will try this ASAP. Thinking I’ll run it through the ice cream maker and make it a soft serve–add a couple of ‘Nilla wafers and its dessert. Love the printable too!

    Like Janet T, I’m wondering if anyone can give a honey to yogurt ratio starting point.

    • says

      Oooo…let me know how the ice cream maker turns out! That sounds GREAT!

      I think a good starting point for adding honey to plain greek yogurt would be 1 – 2 teaspoons per cup? Anyone else?
