Three Ingredient Blueberry Frozen Yogurt

by jerseygirl on June 27, 2012 · 13 comments

I love going to the markets in the summer and picking up some fresh fruit.  Blueberries are very plentiful in NJ during the month of June. I had a roommate in college from Hammonton, NJ and she informed me that Hammonton was blueberry capital of the world. Ronald Reagan had visited the town in 1984 for his reelection campaign and his speech highlighted this.  Actually, NJ is the second largest producer of blueberries behind Michigan but you know I’m buying local if I have a choice. Besides, Michigan is known for Kid Rock so we should be known for blueberries. That president Reagan was a smart man!

So this past week, I bought my flats of blueberries and pondered over what I should make first. I have been eating them by the handfuls and in my oatmeal. But with the heat we were having, I decided to make a frozen treat.  This is easy and it also brought me into ice cream mode. With three simple  ingredients, you can’t go wrong. And I have no problem letting my kids eat this for breakfast.

Ahhhhh, the sweet treats of summer!

This looks AMAZING. We go blueberry picking every summer (early August) and I pick enough blueberries to last me for the entire year & just keep them frozen until I need them. I know what I’m using them for next!

Too funny–I just posted about my version of 3-ingredient blueberry frozen yogurt on the 1st! I use white sugar in my recipe–I think I need to give your recipe a try with brown sugar!
