Blueberry Frozen Yogurt

August 7, 2011

This Blueberry Frozen Yogurt was fantastic, even though I forgot two of the five ingredients.

At least I remembered the blueberries! I forgot the kirsch, which would have made it a bit softer, and the lemon juice, which would have “brightened” the flavor or something like that. But blueberries, yogurt, and sugar whipped up, strained, and frozen are pretty good.

Recipe notes

  • I used Dannon plain full-fat yogurt.
  • I have a lot of blueberries in the freezer, thanks to my in-laws giving me 10 pounds of fresh blueberries, straight from a farm in Michigan. I thawed them in the refrigerator overnight before using them.
  • I strained the mixture through a regular kitchen strainer. A little bit made it through, but not much. The dark flecks add some interest, but are small enough to not affect the texture.
  • It was soft enough to scoop, even without adding alcohol.

You can get the recipe here on Google Books, or from The Perfect Scoop, if you have a copy. I bet you’ll remember to include all five ingredients.

Before you go, please check out my friend Jen’s new blog, Tasty Mayhem. Jen introduced me to the joy of eating green olives on pizza years ago. Sadly, she moved away, so I don’t get to eat her delicious cooking anymore, but now I can try my hand at recreating her delicious dishes in my own kitchen. Enjoy!
