There is only 3 ingredients in this luscious Blueberry Frozen Yogurt Recipe. Why go to your local ice cream shop when you can make this at home?
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 and July. I eat so many that my skin has been known to have a slight blue glow. They're good for you, so why not? Right?
My roommate in college was from Hammonton, NJ and she informed me that Hammonton was the 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.
This past week, I bought numerous flats of blueberries and pondered over what I should make first. I have been eating them by the handfuls, in my oatmeal and making lemon blueberry muffins with them. I also made a Blueberry French Toast Casserole for brunch the other day. But with the heat we were having, I decided I would not be turning on the oven again. It would be best to make a frozen treat. So a Blueberry Frozen Yogurt Recipe was born.
With three simple ingredients, I created this delightful frozen treat. The ripe, juicy blueberries made the frozen yogurt quite colorful. It's the perfect treat to keep in the freezer for a hot summer's night. Actually, the frozen yogurt didn't last in the freezer very long.
I have no problem letting my kids eat this for breakfast. Next time, I must make a double batch.
Ahhhhh, the sweet treats of summer!
