Adapted from Cookie + Kate’s Blueberry frozen Yogurt recipe.

There has been a massive bag of wild blueberries sitting in the frozen depths of the freezer for a month or more, patiently waiting for the day they would emerge from the frigid slumber, thaw and become something truly magical and loved. Not that frozen blueberries can not be loved, they are an amazing snack on their own, but to really appreciate the harvest, jams, pies and well, ice cream (frozen yogurt) is called for.

For an early birthday present, Mrs. Slurper surprised me with a new Cuisinart ICE-30BC. I had been leaving tons of hints about how hot it was outside. How nice it would be to make our own ice cream and frozen yogurt. So, once it arrived, I put it right to work and we have been enjoying one or two treats a week. Here is one of the favorites, a blueberry froyo based on a recipe from Cookie + Kate’s blog (thanks!).

I deviated by adding more berries and yogurt. I also was short on honey, so I used half and half, sugar and honey. I will tackle another froyo down the road and hope to use all honey. The lower the fat content, the harder the dessert will freeze in the freezer.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Frozen blueberries
  • 1/3 cup Organic honey
  • 1/3 cup Organic sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cups No-Fat Yogurt plain

Directions

1. Combine blueberries, honey sugar and lemon juice in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Turn to a simmer and let it cook for about 15 minutes. You can puree and strain the mixture for a smooth dessert, or leave in the berries for a textured treat.
2. Chill the berry mix until it is completely cooled.
3. In your ice cream machine, combine your chilled blueberry mixture and the yogurt. Once the Blueberry Frozen Yogurt is solid, you can transfer it to a container to freeze solid, or serve it right out of the ice cream maker for a softer treat.
