Frozen blueberries, Greek yogurt, maple syrup, and lemon juice is all it takes to make this scrumptious treat. This blueberry frozen yogurt is guaranteed to cool you off this summer!
July is National Blueberry Month! What better way to celebrate these antioxidant-rich fruits than with a frozen dessert?
If you’ve seen any of my breakfast photos on Instagram, you’ll know that I eat blueberries ALL the time. They’re perfect on granola, chia pudding, oatmeal, smoothies, muffins . . . you get the point.
I have some family visiting from the U.K., and they brought over so many of my favorite treats; among them – hobnobs, chocolate-dipped hobnobs, digestives, chocolate-dipped digestives, Montezuma’s chocolate, and jaffa cakes. My molars and so loving me right now.
The past few days, I have been indulging in these British delights. I feel sheepish admitting that I’ve stuffed my face with sweets when I blog about healthy living, but a girl’s gotta have a break some time. Besides, when I start to get serious about training for the Nike half-marathon, I’m going to have to get my mitts off those biscuits.
This blueberry frozen yogurt is a true win-win: they’re very healthy and easy to make. If you’ve ever made “banana ice cream” by blending frozen bananas in a food processor, you’ll know that they can be a pain sometimes. The banana pieces that get stuck in the food processor’s blades are the bane of my existence. I try adding a bit of milk to aid the blending process with very mixed results. In the end, I do get some ice cream but also a very angry food processor.
Frozen blueberries, though, are easier to blend. They do melt a bit faster, but that’s just a small price to pay for me. Besides, you’ll finish this frozen yogurt in no time!
