Yoplait yogurt is a healthy snack food alternative, and some varieties even have fruit mixed in. According to the Yoplait company, it is possible to freeze Yoplait yogurt, but the freezing process substantially changes the texture of the yogurt and is not recommended. Higher fat content yogurt may freeze and thaw more easily than low or no fat yogurt. Freezing yogurt is an effective way to keep large amounts of yogurt from spoiling.

Open a container of Yoplait yogurt and stir with a spoon to combine separated whey and yogurt.

Spoon Yoplait yogurt into small cups, leaving a small amount of room empty at the top of the cup.

Set freezer temperature dial to medium setting. Freezing yogurt at very low temperatures can cause freezer burn.

Wrap up the small cups filled with Yoplait yogurt with plastic wrap. Double check the wrapping for tightness. Loose wrapping can cause freezer burn, as air is able to come in contact with the yogurt.

Place Yoplait yogurt filled containers in freezer for several hours to freeze. Yogurt will keep frozen for 1 to 2 months.


To thaw Yoplait yogurt cups, place in fridge for several hours, then enjoy.


Be careful when thawing, as yogurt can curdle easily when thawing in warm environments.
