Creamy Blueberry Frozen Yogurt

A (possibly hypothetical, possibly not) scenario for you, my readers. Imagine you're at the grocery store and you're eyeing the blueberries. You see they're $3.88 for a pint. The price is high, but you really want those blueberries. You hem and haw, but finally manage to resist the financial tempatation. You round the display ready to move on when you notice you you can get two lbs. of blueberries for $3.99. TWO POUNDS!! You still want blueberries, but that's a whole lot of berries for one person to eat before they go bad. What do you do?

Hypothetically speaking, you're me and you snatch up that big ol' container without even thinking how you'll use them all. Who cares? Grab the berries, run (not that I'm advocating traveling at unsafe speeds while pushing a cart through the produce section...), and figure out what to make later!

Then make this. Really. You won't be the least bit sorry you bought that ginormous container of blueberries. This frozen yogurt is so rich and creamy, it very nearly tricked me into thinking it was ice cream. Seriously. It's that fantastic. Trust me on this one.

Creamy Blueberry Frozen Yogurt
an "Apple a Day" original


1 c. low-fat or fat-free Greek yogurt (low-fat recommended)

1 c. low-fat plain yogurt

2 c. fresh blueberries

1/4 c. sugar

1/2 c. 2% milk (do not use skim)

1 tsp. vanilla


1. Mix yogurts in a medium bowl.

2. Put blueberries, sugar, milk, and vanilla into a blender or food processor. Puree. Stir puree through a strainer to eliminate blueberry skins.

3. Pour blueberry mixture into yogurt mixture and stir to combine.

4. Freeze according to the directions on your ice cream maker.

5. Place in an airtight container and put in the freezer for at least two hours before serving.

***Note: This yogurt will freeze very hard. Allow about ten minutes of thaw time before scooping.
