Sour Blueberry Frozen Yogurt in an Ice Cream Maker

Homemade frozen yogurt can be a great substitute to traditional ice cream. It’s lower in calories and fat content, has a wonderful tangy flavor, and keeps well in the freezer for weeks.

If you’ve never made a homemade frozen dessert before, this is an excellent recipe to try out.

Prep Time: 5 min

Cook Time: 1 hr 30 min

Extra: 24 hrs to freeze ice cream maker bowl

Ingredients
1 1/2 cup blueberries
1 lemon
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 ½ cups of low-fat plain yogurt
¼ cup 1% milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  • Heat blueberries in a skillet using a fork to burst the berries, about 3 minutes
  • Add sugar, honey, cinnamon, vanilla, and the juice of 1 lemon
  • Cook until sugar has dissolved and the mixture begins to thicken
