Birthday Cake Keto Frozen Yogurt

Birthday Cake Keto Frozen Yogurt

Frozen yogurt is a natural fit for keto dieters with its lower residual sugar than conventional dairy. This froyo has all the birthday cake flavor nostalgia you crave and none of the sugar. It works with a store-bought greek yogurt like Fage, but you should try your hand at making your own.

  • 2 cups whole milk yogurt (Greek yogurt is preferred, or make your own!)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon imitation butter extract
  • 1/2 cup powdered erythritol (I buy granular and grind it down in a spice grinder.)
  • 8 drops stevia glycerite
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 tablespoon rainbow sprinkles (See Recipe Notes)


  • ice cream maker
  • salt shaker


  1. Stir the yogurt until with a whisk until it is more of a liquid consistency and loosely pourable. Add the salt and stir until incorporated.

  2. Add the powdered erythritol and stevia glycerite and stir until incorporated.

  3. Stir in the vanilla and butter extract flavoring until incorporated.

  4. Add the xanthan gum to the salt shaker and shake over the top of the yogurt evenly while stirring with the other hand. Keep it moving! Xanthan gum is powerful stuff and will clump otherwise.

  5. Rest the froyo batter in the fridge way in the back for at least six hours and preferrably overnight.

  6. Spin the frozen yogurt in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions, adding the sprinkles at the very end only to incorporate. Freeze until firm.

  7. Remove the ice cream and warm slightly, preferably gently in the fridge, until scoopable. Serve.

Recipe Notes

I used regular sprinkles with all sorts of naughty non-keto ingredients in this recipe since the serving size was very small and they are readily available. That being said, you can find sugar free sprinkles from Amazon.com here.

I use powdered erythritol here since I am not heating the yogurt batter prior to chilling and erythritol is notorious for being resistant to dissolving, particularly when cold. Grinding it down in a bladed spice grinder gives us a much-needed head start on that.
