    Blueberry Frozen Yogurt Recipe | JustOneCookbook.com

    If you are considering to purchase an ice cream maker and asking me for my opinion, I would highly recommend buying one. As you know, I normally don’t make desserts at home but I have been making many kinds of ice creams and sorbets this summer. Technically you don’t really need a machine to make ice cream, but if you have children and you want to make some homemade treats for them, the ice cream maker is pretty convenient to have. This is my first time making blueberry frozen yogurt and it was a hit with my children and their school friends.

    The perks about having an ice cream machine is that I get to make “healthier” frozen treats at home using fresh ingredients and it does not take much time at all. With having fresh baked goods around in the kitchen, I often worry about losing control over eating them and end up eating all the cookies or cake on the same day (or in a few hours!). However, with frozen treats, I quickly store it at the bottom of freezer so I forget about it most of the day. Some people worry about eating too much ice cream once you purchase it, but so far it hasn’t happened to me yet. And I feel good that I’ve been actually making desserts! 🙂  Don’t worry about not having an ice cream machine though because you can still enjoy this yummy frozen yogurt without one.

    This past weekend, the Bay Area was really warm close to 90F so we enjoyed my frozen stash – 2 kinds of frozen yogurt and Green Tea Ice Cream (the most frequently appeared ice cream flavor in my freezer). The blueberry frozen yogurt came out really delicious and refreshing by using fresh blueberries. If your blueberries are not as sweet, then consider adding a little more sugar or honey before churning.

    This has been the busiest summer ever for me and I apologize for my slow response to your questions and inquiries (I’ll do my best to catch up soon!). With my children around all the time and their busy schedule, I rarely have time to do anything else besides spending time with them. They seemed like they are having a great summer so far and that make me happy as a mom although I feel like I’m a tired zombie all the time. I am ready for our vacation…which I have been waiting for whole summer. Have a wonderful Monday!

    3. Then use a potato masher to mash the blueberries. You can use a food processor for this process if you like fine texture, but I love to have some texture so I use this method.

    8. If you do not have an ice cream maker, then transfer the mixture to a container and put it in a freezer. Stir every few hours (3-4 times) to break up the ice crystals until it’s completely frozen.
