If nobody’s noticed, we have yet to make any frozen yogurt in our ice cream maker! We finally got around to making a blackberry frozen yogurt recipe that we had each pinned on Pinterest awhile ago, dying to make it, but we didn’t have an ice cream maker. Well ever since, we haven’t picked up any blackberries to make it because they haven’t been in season enough. Finally last week, Will decided we would try frozen yogurt and that this was the best looking one to try first! The only downside was we ultimately did not end up with enough blackberries to puree-otherwise, it turned out pretty good. We added a little honey, mostly for our own amusement more than anything (we’re trying to build up our swirling skills). The froyo didn’t necessarily need it because the yogurt already produced enough flavor, but as the honey has settled in, it’s true flavors have really become fragrant and apparent. Overall, the perfect first attempt at homemade froyo!
Cooking Notes: We didn’t have quite 3 cups worth of blackberries, so we improvised with about a cup and a half. We also decided to use Greek yogurt instead of yogurt cheese, which is suggested. We added honey towards the end, just to make it more exciting!
In a blender, puree the blackberries with the sweetened condensed milk. In a medium bowl, mix the puree with the yogurt. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and blend for about 25 minutes. Squeeze in some honey to swirl, allowing to mix another 3 minutes. Enjoy!
