Blueberry Frozen Yogurt, made with only five ingredients, including fresh blueberries, is slightly tart and delicious! Make this in your ice cream maker or a Ninja Creami.
Blueberry Frozen Yogurt
There’s a farm on Long Island where you can go berry picking, and they make the BEST homemade blueberry ice cream. Since making my chocolate frozen yogurt in my Ninja Creami, I started playing around with other flavors and was dying to try it using fresh blueberries. It turned out even better than I imagined! I also tested it in a standard ice cream maker, and it worked well. Some other frozen desserts that I love are Frozen Banana Pop, Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt, and Frozen Fruit Pops.
Since there is no heavy cream in this frozen yogurt recipe, I recommend using whole milk yogurt to give it more of a creamy consistency. Since I am watching my sugar intake, I used monk fruit sweetener for the blueberries, but you can use cane sugar or any sweetener you prefer.
How to Make Frozen Blueberry Yogurt
- Blueberries: Combine the blueberries, monk fruit sweetener, and water, and cook uncovered on medium-low for about seven minutes. Once the berries cool, blend them until smooth and press through a mesh strainer.
- Freeze: Stir in the agave syrup and yogurt with the berries, pour into a Ninja Creami pint, and freeze for 24 hours.
- Process: Take the pint out of the freezer and remove the lid. Put the container in the Ninja Creami and select “LITE ICE CREAM.” When the machine is done processing the yogurt, open the pint and check the texture. If it looks crumbly, put it back in the machine and spin it again. If it looks good, eat it right away or store it in the freezer for later.
- Berries: Swap the blueberries for strawberries, blackberries, or raspberries, or use a combination for mixed berry yogurt.
- Sweetener: Sub cane sugar or agave syrup for monk fruit.
- Yogurt Bark: I bet this frozen dessert would be amazing as yogurt bark. Simply pour the yogurt on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and freeze. Then, break up the bark into pieces and eat it frozen.
- Blueberry Frozen Yogurt Popsicles: Make popsicles by pouring the yogurt mixture into popsicle molds, insert the sticks, and freeze for six hours.
