How to make Cafe-style Tigernut Froyo (Easy Recipe)


Get your froyo fix at home with this easy, simple, vegan version of cafe-style froyo, featuring none other than our Original tigernut butter with no added sugar and *no common allergens. *Made dairy-free and using only natural ingredients, this creamy, healthier version of traditional frozen yogurt with tigernut flavor is the perfect midday treat or evening indulgence.


  • 1 ½ cups non-dairy yogurt, plain and unsweetened
  • ¼ cup Natureul Tigernut Butter
  • 2-3 tablespoons sweetener (we used maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2-4 tablespoons of non-dairy milk or water


  1. Add the yogurt to an ice tray and freeze for at least two hours or overnight.
  2. Add the frozen non-dairy yogurt, butter, sweetener, vanilla extract, and salt to a blender. Pulse to break up the cubes. Once the frozen yogurt has broken down enough to be blended, blend on high for 10-15 seconds, adding liquid one tablespoon at a time until it’s reached your desired consistency.
  3. To create the cafe-style effect, pour the frozen tigernut frozen yogurt into a piping bag or zip-top plastic bag and freeze for ten to fifteen minutes.
  4. If using a piping bag, cut off the tip of the bag and add to another piping bag with the piping tip of your choice inserted. If using a plastic bag, simply snip a hole in one corner and hold the bag at an angle.
  5. Twist the top of the bag closed and squeeze the frozen yogurt out into a bowl from the back of the bag with your dominant hand in a swirling motion, guiding with your non-dominant hand. Make sure to work inwards toward the center to create the signature froyo swirl.
  6. Top with your favorite frozen yogurt toppings or eat plain! Bon appetite!

Tips For Making Cafe-style Tigernut Froyo

Get creative with the piping shape. If you use a smooth, round piping tip, you’ll get a perfectly soft swirl. If you want to mimic soft-serve machines, use a star tip with 6-8 peaks, that will make creases in the swirls like froyo shops often have. You can also use a petal tip to make frilly, fluffy stacks of soft tigernut yogurt.

Add a tigernut-chocolate magic shell. Looking for a chocolatey upgrade? Combine a little melted chocolate with a few tablespoons of tigernut butter and coconut oil. Pour it over the top of the froyo and watch the magic happen!

For a bit of extra interest and a crispy crunch, serve the froyo in a cone or a waffle bowl. Whether you make the cone yourself or use store-bought, any edible ice cream container will work and will be sure to delight your diners!

How to Store Cafe-style Tigernut Froyo

This tigernut frozen yogurt is meant to be enjoyed immediately, but you can freeze it in an ice cube tray overnight and then transfer the cubes to a Ziploc. Blend the cubes again according to the original instructions to resurrect the soft creaminess of the froyo.
